Terez, I don't drink anymore by choice..

Tigers star Miguel Cabrera said he now drinks water, apple juice or orange juice at meals. He speaks with his counselor on the phone, but does not attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. “You guys write in the paper ‘alcoholic,’ that’s not right,” Cabrera said. “I don’t know how to explain, but it’s not an alcohol problem. It’s what you guys call it, it’s what you guys say. I don’t have a problem with you guys saying that. I’m not going to put my mind on it every time you guys write something and I read it in the paper. “I’m not going to be mad because you guys say that.” — Booth Newspapers

It sounds like something an alcoholic would say..I really feel bad for the guy..it must suck for him to have orange juice instead of a beer for breakfast. -TO
