I usually only do this on the weekends, but I love to pour myself a tall drink after a long day. Some people like wine, some people like beer, and some people like myself like a nice big cocktail. Not only does it take some of the edge off, but it puts me right to sleep every time I have one. Just be careful not to go overboard with this one, there is nothing relaxing about an alcohol addiction.
When I was growing up, I avoided mugs at all costs. Most of the mugs were at my grandparents' houses, and they had (what I thought was) boring scenery, "World's Greatest Grandma," and business names plastered on them. I would wonder why anyone would want to drink out of a short, bulky cup like that. Then I grew up.
