    Some of us would say that’s alcohol abuse…

    (Kidding!! Good on you, actually, and then some! :techman:)

    Tonight: 2012 Kendall Jackson Reserve Chardonnay.

    Cheers,

    I drank way too much during COVID, currently working it back to the 2-3 drinks, 3-4 times per week level.

    I like beer (Stouts, wheats, Belgian darks, red/amber/brown ale, never macros). Also into scotch and a variety of bourbon, tequila and gin mixed drinks.

    There can be logical arguments for 1-2 drinks for those with low grade social anxiety symptoms or enough stress to make sleeping difficult.

    None today, but I love wine! In this weekend I drank a glass of Syrah, one of my favorite varieties. It doesn't help that I'm also an oenology student.

    A traditionalist. I like that.

    A Stella with brunch today, but no more than one - can't take the dogs for a hike with a buzz !

    A few times a month, maybe three - just one drink.

    Though I do enjoy a good beer or a mixed drink, I cut way back after the plague began because, like many people, I found myself drinking more and more. I can still have one now and then without it being a problem, fortunately, and I'm still a Stella gal.

    I’ve been cutting back more and more leading up to my Ironman but finding a lot of the things I do when I’m alone for the evening feel kinda bland without a little bit of buzz.

    I wish there was more overlap between my favorite mixed drinks and drinks you can order at a bar without getting confused looks. Basically manhattans and margaritas. Vieux Carres, Sazeracs and French 75s you can only order confidently in NOLA and Last Words and Corpse Revivers almost nobody but mixology experts know about.

    I used to slam down Jack Daniels straight, no ice, but that was 20 years ago. These days, I don't touch alcohol at all. I was more of a social drinker just in college anyway, but that gradually stopped after seeing one too many friends pay homage to the Porcelain God...

    Just one little snifter of single malt, just the standard 15 year old Dahlwhinnie.
    As for how often I drink, between five or six of these snifters in half a year, in 2020 and 2021 I didn't drink anything at all.
