The Army has taught me how to deal with drunks.
As to my drinking -- I doubt I'll hardly drink when I get out of the Army (I rarely get drunk when I go on leave). I've done it so much now that I could care less for it. When I first got to Germany 3 1/2 (I was 20 then) years ago I used to mainly do shots -- now (23 now), I can't stand the things.
Half the time anymore I'm dragged out to the bars to drink with friends. Which annoys me -- because I prefer to drink at bars by myself or with people that can handle themselves. Alcohol doesn't affect me nearly as bad as it affects a lot of other people. I can drink from 6pm to 6am and still walk straight (ok, thats if I'm drinking Jager+red bull, and thats roughly the only thing I drink). My role then ends up taking care of the people who can't handle their alcohol.
Meh -- I wish there was more to do during your average weekend in Germany than go out and drink. Its seriously turned into a damn chore. Yet, I refuse to just sit on my couch in the barracks wanting to beat my head into a wall because of one of my roommates.
