Not any more. I used to drink socially but mainly because people keep pushing me to do so. People don't seem to understnad you can have just as much fun no drinking. I don't like the taste of alcohol (never have).
But they do understand, it's you that don't You see, it's no fun drinking with a sober person -so as long as you are part of a drunken party you're making it less fun for all the drunkls.




(I truly hate having to state this in a post, but I cant seem to express it in emoticons: nothing personal or against sober people intended.)

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

I throw one or two back during the week to relax and usually drink a bit more on Friday or Saturday night. I haven't been able to get hammered two nights in a row in years though.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

I have never had an alcoholic beverage of any kind.
If I do in the future, it will be sparingly and for certain occasions, if I wish to do so.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

Seldom/special occasions for me. I'm not a big drinker. I'll order a mixed drink every once in awhile when I dine out, and the only time I really drink anything at home is if I run across something that sounds good that I'd like to try and if I have the ingredients already. I strongly dislike beer and I've never been drunk, though. I do enough stupid things while sober, so I'm a little terrified at what I might come up with while inebriated!

Very seldom/ very special occasions. Too much alcoholism in the family to be drinking often.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

I voted never have, although that's technically not true. I was raised in a catholic home so there was the obligatory communion wine. So technically I did consume it, but at the time I was young and thought it was the blood of Christ. Both of my roommates enjoy the drink though, and that's fine by me. It seems like it makes it difficult to meet new people though since I don't drink and the majority of people my age are going nuts because they just turned 21.

Seldom/special occasions.

When I do, though, I do it for the express purpose of getting crazily, epically, tragically drunk. I don't really like the taste of most alcoholic beverages, so I figure if I'm going to have to taste it I might as well get the full benefits.

I see the T'Bonz and Spiff have weighed in. Two people voted for "Several drinks a day, everyday".

Which keeps me from getting addicted.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

Generally I only drink "socially" and since I don't really have a life that averages to about once a month.
