I want to want to stop drinking. And I sort of do. But I don't.

How can I make myself actually *want* to stop drinking, rather than just intellectually *know* that I should, then feel guilty for not even trying? How can I motivate myself to keep attempting to quit? [more inside]

Is it better to have many individual weeks off the booze, or fewer months?

I drink a lot. Not every day, but when I do drink I drink a lot. I have done for a long time. I have periodic abstinences of a week, two weeks, sometimes a month. What's better? Long breaks, or more frequent short ones? If I'm going to have (say) 1/4 of the year off, is it better to try for 3 dry months in a row, or 3 dry months spaced out across the year, or 13 dry weeks? Note: this is not a question about stopping for good. This is a question about what's better for my health in terms of periodic abstinence. [more inside]

Do I really need to brush my teeth again after a little bit of Scotch?

I like to sip a little bit of Scotch before going to bed, spending a few quiet minutes with a single malt, my browser, and some good music. I usually do this after brushing my teeth, and I really, really dislike going back to brush my teeth again before going to bed (it totally kills the pleasant pre-sleep buzz). I'm not sure how much sugar is in Scotch, but is this practice likely to lead to cavities over the long term?

Something more special than, but similar to, Riccadonna

More expensive alternatives to Riccadonna? I looove the sweetness of Riccadonna but want something a bit less cheap and tacky. So something around the 30-50$ mark (Australian dollar) would be super. I hate dry and tart sparkling wines, but I have also tried some sweet sparkling wines that are too sweet and heavy almost -- like a mudcake that's too rich and sickly. Riccadonna seems light and sweet and fruity as opposed to cloying. Note: I know almost nothing about wines and champagnes, so feel free to teach me things. :)

Best margarita-making device for <= $250?

Mrs. Everichon has requested a "serious margarita maker" for her birthday. The SkyMall/Amazon breed of dedicated margarita makers look suspicious and gimmicky to me. What do actual bars use to make great margarita ice? Is there a special device, or is it just a restaurant-grade blender? I see that the industrial-grade Cool Technologies Margarita Machine runs about $3,500; my budget has a ceiling of, say, $250.
