    It'd probably be easier to list things that are NOT my vices.

    I probably drink too much rum and now bourbon. Still go to work and all. Can stay sober all day. Just enjoy a cocktail or two or three at night.

    I spend way too much time reading posts on hearth.com instead of getting chores done. And beer.

    Coffee's not an issue unless you have a condition or reaction. I can stop any time. Really.

    Internet porn and killing the occasional drifter.

    And grrl rock

    Ya man, it keeps coming up on Pandora. Been stuck on it. I mean real Grrl rock- not pop garbage. Probably like it because I'm not sick of it, like I am with everything on the radio
    (I don't expect anyone else to like it- just like the rest of the music I listen to)

    Wine
    Cigars
    Great food
    Great friends (I know it may sound weird, but they really are a vice of mine)

    I don't do coffee, illicit drugs nor Girl Rock.

    My big one is coffee. I'd have trouble giving that up.

    I waste a lot of time time on IRC too, but I'm getting better about that.

    I loved coffee, til I saw what unfiltered coffee was doing to my cholesterol numbers. (we have a french press.) Now I drink tea. Is that still a vice?
