This time of year reminds me of many things. It reminds me of all the good times I have had tailgating, the memories of past summers and my sobriety anniversary.

Before I sobered up I was a party animal. Of course, I partied for the wrong reasons, did I have fun? I'd be lying if I said I didn't. I am grateful for my sobriety. I used to love taking trips, visiting new towns and taking in their bar scene. I can do that now, I just don't drink alcohol.

What are the criteria for being the drunkest town in Michigan? According to MLive:

This particular list ranks Michigan's drunkest cities based on the following criteria: number of bars, wineries and liquor stores per capita, each city's drunkenness-related tweets, and, for some reason, the city's divorce rates. Seemingly not factored in is each community's proclivity toward existential dread or the suffering of conditioned existence that often leads one down the bottle.
