While vacationing at his Texas Ranch,Lyndon B. Johnson would mosey around on his horse drinking his cocktail of his choice, scotch and soda. Occasionally he would hold out his empty Styrofoam cup, and wait for his trailing secret servicemen to mix him a new one and run it up to his horse from their trailing car.

Early in his career while running for his district attorney,
Grover Cleveland and his opponent decided to cap themselves at four beers per day in order to remain “clear-headed” for their debates. After only a few days, they decided to remove the limit because it was just too harsh. And who says our politicians can’t agree and work together!
John Adams is widely considered our drunkest president… in addition to being one of this country’s greatest minds. He began smoking at age 8, and was drinking beer for breakfast by the time he was accepted to Harvard at age 15. He managed to live a long life, dying at age 90, which just goes to show, drinking and smoking are really good for you*!
