I like beer and whiskey...nothing better than a cold crisp Miller Lite and a Jamison neat on the side. Don't know why, but that combination is my happy place.
My body hates when I drink...it doesn't stop me, though. I truly enjoy the taste of whiskey, bourbon and a nice single malt scotch. I have to be very cognizant of my alcohol intake because of it.
I will say, I have not been able to give up drinking for more than a couple of weeks at a time before going back and I've still managed to lose 117lbs so far.
Find what works and work it, Ian!
