If something happened to like my family and they all died or something, then yes very much, would I want to forget. I would jump at the chance at a new life without a past. Even good memories are painful when you don't have those people to share them with. Plus a thing like that happening to me, would eat away at me like a cancer...or I'd drink myself to death.
But other than that extreme happen-chance .... no I wouldn't my whole memory wiped.
"That's the problem with drinking ... If something bad happens you drink in attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen." -- Charles Bukowski

Willie Wonka quotes.. What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse? Why? Are you having fun? A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men. We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams
