  1. As a second-generation LDS w/ a history of alcoholism on both sides of the family tree before my parents joined the church as teens, I don’t know that I could ever dare flirt w/ alcohol for the first time after seeing what it did to my parents’ families – faith crisis or not. The lady guest on your show who took a drink as an adult after her bout w/ teen alcohol abuse is pretty daring. If my children ever decided to take it up, I’d for sure let them know that their great-grandpa died in a relative’s home having lost everything he had to alcoholism while their other grandpa died on a ventilator after driving drunk into oncoming traffic going down the wrong freeway ramp. No thanks…
