"have to" sounds clumsy relative to "must"; while when "must" is too strong, "should" seems to work.

Or "need" to (in case of doctor's wishes).

"have to" related to work conveys annoyance. "Our standard is …".

"Having something (in your hand)" versus "having something (to do)". The word is just clumsy by itself.
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.
