I was under the assumption that Teetotalism was being a complete lush, but in a conversation with Doug the other day he used it in a story (not about me, thank you, Alice) describing someone who did not drink a drop. Now, in the past, Doug used “site for sore eyes” to mean the opposite (i.e. seeing someone when you didn’t want to see them.
Well, Doug was right. Teetotallers or tea totallers are people that prefer tea over other (namely alcoholic) drinks.
