A love for painting can fade when the muse becomes faded. I doesn't mean you've lost your love for the activity but that it no longer holds the same desperate importance to you. It's not a bad or good thing. It just is.
You may find that you feel a need to keep up the boozing because you owe it or yourself to stay the course. Never let a habit you no longer feel an affinity for enslave you. They say booze captures people, and for some it may be true, but for others it liberates us. It has liberated you. Whether you need to continue some arbitrary allegiance to it is up to you.
Should you choose to move on to other things, feel free to do so. Know that the tender taste of that first beer, first whisky will be here waiting for you should you wish to revisit the hauntings of the past.
Booze is not an obligation but a avocation that you can take up or not as you choose. You won't loose your boozer credentials for not getting pissed up on the next Thursday night. I'd imagine that should the mood take you, you could still drink most of your mates right under the table even after an extended dry period.
Liberate yourself my friend from anything you feel obligated to except yourself.
Of course, the next round is on you when you come around.
