No. Alcohol took a lot away from me. Why would I want to give it more.

Why would I wish to dull my senses. I like being able to feel again

Yes, but that is an unlikely scenario. If I die suddenly, I wouldn't know it was my last supper, and if I die of illness, I doubt I would want supper or wine.

Depending on your beliefs that last meal is only that in your current and present body, and while your death pains those you have left behind, you are moving on to a happier and more rewarding place ... I'm not sure those are my beliefs, though they were my mothers. I never saw her drink a drop of alcohol - she quit before I was born because as she told me she feared she would become an alcoholic. And even as she faced ceasing treatment, she didn't choose to drink ... Because then she couldn't say it had been X days since her last drink. So while I'm not sure those are my beliefs it does give me great comfort in thinking she is in yet a better place... And I want to follow her example and only be able to increase my number of days for an eternity.

I agree with others. It is not healthy for my mind to consider whether or not I would drink again. To drink is to die.

My first thought was "Why in the world would I do that?" My second was "Absolutely not!" So glad my obsession to drink has been lifted.

Nope. The thought of it makes me want to gag. I would like my last meal to be a pleasant experience. When the light goes out of my eyes and I step through the veil to walk among the Thursar, I don't want the memory of a poor beverage decision to be weighing on my mind.

No.

One of the things sobriety returned to me is integrity. I have told myself I will not drink again.

This time around going into my sobriety, it wasn't a "stop drinking or else" situation. Those scenarios in the past just led to drinking in secret. But this time, I detoxed at home under supervision from my sister, not because I was supposed to, but because I wanted to. During my taper, there were multiple times when I thought about sneaking an extra drink when I was unsupervised. But it dawned on me that I was the only person who was getting cheated if I chose to sneak an extra drink. So, my decision to never take another drink isn't based on being seen with a drink or possible consequences; it is a sacred oath to myself. I would sooner starve to death at a table full of food than break my oath simply because I had a reasonable excuse.

Dee, For me i only wanted to drink alone. I stopped because of the impact it had on my family and loved ones. Because I think deep down I know I am a alcoholic and if the situation arose where it was just me and a bottle and nobody else was there and no body tomorrow, I know the answer would be yes. This isn't anything to do with religion and it's not a game I am playing with you guys either. It's just honesty with myself.

It would be very different I were not alone. I wouldn't want to lose the respect of my loved ones and would have my last meal with water and their love. But alone and no tomorrow would be to take the drink. I think by answering my own question like this, I know I am still struggling. Although I have no urge to drink alcohol right now.

No, the big reason for me would be I really don't like to taste of alcohol.

So, if it was my Last Supper I wouldn't have time after the last supper for the effects of alcohol. Plus. If it was my Last Supper and I did get to enjoy the effects but I was able to live through breakfast that means I would die with a hangover, no thank you.

Nope I would not...

ps. I may reconsider if my last supper was liver and lima beans.
