Nope. Always after a defeat and a respite, the shadow takes a new form and grows again.

Tried it once, didn't hate and wasn't allergic, just didn't see the point and won't do it any more because I wish people in general would not.

Never. I'm not going to drink something that smells like it should be used to clean a toilet.

You would be better off without that cheap stuff anyway. Pay a little more and get a lot higher quality

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

Seldom. I think the last time was for my birthday last year when some friends took me to a nice restaurant and I had hard cider.
Problem is I really hate the taste of alcohol and have to order something seriously diluted in order to drink it. At which point I might as well just have a soda or glass of juice and save a few bucks.

Honestly can't understand how anybody could actually enjoy drinking beer or wine.

Even good-quality wine emits such a bad smell from the alcohol part that I can't stand it. :-/

I have a beer once every couple of months (usually with pizza) and a glass of champagne at special occasions.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

i've tried spirits of various sorts and not particularly liked much. i've drunk 1 pint of Guiness and hated it. i do like Bacardi Breezers although i've drunk exactly 3.

i don't go out enough to drink more and i don't waste money to buy stuff to drink at home.

Probably works out at once or twice a month, averaged through the year. Depends how busy I am with work.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

Consume alcohol: 4-5 days a week
Consume enough to get drunk: probably averages to once a week, though there are some weeks that I don't drink at all and others where I'm drunk 3 days in a row
Consume enough to 1) black out, 2) vomit and/or 3) promise to never drink again: once every couple months

Mandatory Drunk Days:
New Years
Halloween
Halloween in January (my friends and I love Halloween so much that we have 2 of them!)
The Superbowl (along with a party sub from Subway)
All friends' birthdays
When my best friend and I have Buffy/Angel marathons
When my friend Tony visits from out of town
When my friend Angie is bartending
Election Day
Anytime I find myself at a bonfire
When our favorite local band (Minus 6) is playing at our favorite local bar (RIBCO)

That's all I can think of right now...

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

I have a couple of glasses of wine on most evenings and I go to the pub for the evening maybe once every 2 weeks at the moment, I rarely get drunk but it takes quite a lot of alcohol to make any significant impact on me.

Seldom. Every couple of months, maybe? I'm not sure. It used to be Never, but then they invented Twisted Tea.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink?

At the most it's one small glass of wine and a dry sherry on a work day.

Maybe a whole bottle of wine spread over a 2-3 day rest-period (once every few weeks).

Honestly, these days, just too darned tired to drink much.


Hugo - was teetotal for a good period of his wine-selling career, but missed the thrill of experiencing a new wine.
