Good question, I have not got a sweet tooth [but you better lock up your 
salt and vinegar tater chips!] and I am notorious for being 
nonaddictive, I cold turkeyed morphine after 7 weeks, and regularly 
thanks to the freaking State of COnnecticut do a month of opioid, then 2 
months without because they refuse to give me mine for more than a 30 
day supply, yet my insurance company wants the scrip written for 9- and 
will not pay for me to visit my primary every 30 days and he has got to 
electronically transmit my scrips or the insurance company will not pay 
[and the military does not have my specific one and dose in their system 
so tehy will not provide it walk in and i refuse to pay for them to mail 
order it, i posit that i should not have a copay because they can not 
provide it to me walk in when they can source it mail order. we are at 
an impasse *sigh*]

I also do not get hang overs, go figure. I always had a heck of an 
ability to outdrink guys twice my weight, I regularly outdrank the guys 
on my ex's Seal team one of whom was about 6'6 and weighed something 
like 280 pounds. [I was 5'7 and weighed 135] and even today with not 
drinking most of the time I can manage a fair amount of alcohol without 
issue - I absentmindedly was drinking without noticing that I was 
getting refilled and did about 6 shots of apple schnaps in 2 hours, I 
was grabbing Robs. <shrug> I think my greatest amount was 15 margaritas 
in about 4 hours, and occasionally was known to do percocet with a shot 
back without really showing. I still can tank a lot without showing.
