Good for you, did you ever see what happens to heavy drinkers when they don't drink for a couple of days? Convulsions and shaking, it is a horrible addiction.

I don't drink as much as I used to...Maybe alcohol isn't as recession resistant as first thought.

Tobacco on the other hand that truly is recession resistant lol

Lucky, I wish I had never touched a smoke ever. I guess addictions are a vice.

When looked upon long term both alcohol and tobacco stocks are winners. MO and DEO are two of my recommendations.

Yep. Even in a recession people still need ways to socialize and have fun. Many have wine cabinets at home stocked with wine & spirits. http://www.finewinecabinets.com/
