I like the taste of some wines (not dry ones), <insert good hard liquor> and Diet Coke, and fruity girly drinks. And shots if it's really good stuff. No beer. I probably drink something once every three months or so, though lately I have been indulging in this one yummy Zinfandel ...

But I don't care for the feeling that goes with it too much, and I have never had a hangover. I listen to the little voice in my head that says, "You have had enough."

I haven't had anything to drink in about a month, but normally I have a few drinks a week, and will also open a bottle of wine on the weekend.

As the weather gets warmer, it is all about margaritas - nectar of the Gods.

I am an adopted Aussie! So I can have drinks at least half the time!

I have some weird Asian thing that doesn't allow me to digest alcohol. I lack the enzyme to digest it, sort of like lactose intolerance. I drank in high school but once I hit college I couldn't. Figures

My dad was an alcoholic and my younger brother is well on his way. My older brother and I rarely drink. My husband rarely drinks.

I love a good wine with dinner but even then 1 glass is plenty.

A 6-pack of beer will last in our house for well over a year. We only ever really buy it if we are expecting company.

Irish and german here...although...

I am not much for drinking.

I have only ever been drunk once, and it was not silly stupid drunk. I knew i was drunk and i stopped. It was my 21st bday party with a couple of guy friends...

i have a drink here and there steve and I dont go out much and the liquour i like is impossible for me to get (as far as hard stuff i like Jameson irish whiskey not the import stuff heh a penpal has sent it to me in the past) otherwise i stick to fruity drinks.

I did have a mikes hard lemonade, and a fuzzy navel last week at one of steves gigs it was on the house hehe

a 6 pack of cola beer will last a week in my room, sometimes not even 2 days But i had to quit it because its making me put on too much weight and my stomac bloating

I used to drink a lot, but now it just makes my head hurt too much. Now I am usually the designated driver when I go out, so nobody bugs me about drinking. I will sometimes have a few at home, but not very often.

I do not drink either. When I was younger, 18-21, I responded to many DUI accidents while a member of the volunteer fire department. I have had to body bag a few people including a high school friend. During my 20 year Navy career, I have seen the results of people drinking and getting drunk, from fights, DUI's, divorces, and even sexually transmitted diseases that would probably have not occured if the parties involved were sober and made the appropriate choice to use protection preventing the spread of the disease. Upon telling a patient that he has HIV, he stated that if he only did not get drunk at that party and had unprotected sex with a girl he did not know. Now he has life altering event. So, over the years, I have deveolped a distaste for alcohol for the above reasons. I do not wish anything happening to me.

I love a good drink. Before I knew how much my bod could handle I have got myself in a few messes before but now I usually know when to stop.
I think it goes with living with a student, I'm sort of living the student life.
I first got drunk when I was about 13, that was far too young. But I liked a drink all through my teens, now I only drink if I'm out, and even then not always, I don't mind driving.
I don't usually drink at home because I never stop at one glass and always regret it the next day.
I'm going out tomorrow night since I have Monday off work and I will be drinking.

My husband is a firefighter/paramedic, and he has bagged up a few bodies himself. What a shame........only if they hadn't drank and drove........ I have nothing against anyone having a few drinks but please you guys, and I know I don't really have to say this, but it's the mother in me, please let someone else drive........your all too important to me!

Its beer mixed with cola, but here in germany they already prepare it in bottles and its much better than making it your self!

Its delicious!

I do not drink hardly at all, that being said, its not because I don't want to but I've been so busy with my first year of university and my 3 year old son that I really haven't had any oppertunity.

In 2005, I had a total of 3 cooler drinks. I've already had 1 this year.

I think it is nice to be able to have a drink with a couple of friends once in a while.

I'm surprised I haven't drank more because there is a lot of pressure from people at school to drink ( I hang out with the older, non-drinking people) from the people my own age. I get really tempted some times but then I remember my responsiblities and that is what keeps me grounded.

Well I feel like a "oddball" now J/K....I dont drink every night, or every wekend for that matter~but I will say that when I drink(most the time) I drink to get drunk.....Thats just me though. And like I said I dont do it ALL the time, just on occasion. But then theres times where I will only have like one drink and I am done, or it makes me sleepy.

Is it something you can only get there, or do you think we might have it here, imported? If not, how would one go about making it themselves? *goes to store and buys beer and cola*

Well, I haven't had a drink today! I don't know, during the week I drink nearly every day (1 or 2 in the evening) but not to be drunk, and then at weekend I like to get smashed. Though last Halloween I passed out on someone's sidewalk and got a concussion and haven't been able to talk right since, so I usually stop a little earlier than I used to.

I don't think there's anything wrong with not drinking though, and I've never met anyone who would make fun or think someone's weird for not drinking. My parents were like you guys, they'd buy a 24 pack of stones or something and then it'd be there a year later.

I like drinking and enjoy the taste of it. My favourite is Passion Pop. Dan, do you have that in Aussie?
post #53 of 58
I enjoy a glass of wine on the weekend or sometimes when we go out to eat. Will enjoys beer more and once a week or so will pick up a six pack, and I will have a glass of beer, I must have ice in my beer though! I enjoy one or two drinks and that's my limit for the night.

I usually don't drink either..I don't really like the taste of alcohol unless its a daquiri or a brown cow or something..I don't much like the feeling of being hung over either
post #55 of 58
I rarely drink anything. If I do, it's mixing a little wine with a lot of juice or soda! I'd just rather know I'm in control of myself. I've never been drunk, and I don't condem anyone for drinking either. I just don't trust myself I guess!
post #56 of 58
I drank when I was 20 but I stopped at 21 as I got drunk once with three rum and cokes and it made me feel awful and after that beer upset my stomach too much.

I have diabetes and depression and I'm on medications so alcohol is not a good thing. I stick with diet pop, juices, water.
post #57 of 58
I drink very rarely. I didn't drink at all socially until after I was 21 (22 now , but my parents wanted me to be "cultured" so I was given a sip of wine or beer or whathave you) and of course now if I go to a bar and DON'T want to drink I STILL get carded. Hmmph.

Anyway, I had the taste of beer and most wines, so I prefer mixed drinks if I have them, and that's only on a really special occasion. So if you'd asked this question a year ago, my answer would have no, I don't drink, but now, I do on occasion.

I drink. And I drink about once or twice a week. And it's usually to get drunk. lol.

I dont like much beer..but Im a big "fruity" drink kind of girl. Especially Long Island Ice teas. MMMmmm....The only beer I drink is corona. And that's because for some reason, I just LOVE it.

Around here, There's alot of drinking...all the time. It's wisconsin, come on now. lol.

I dont get out much, I have a two year old daughter, and 3 jobs and when I do get to drink (when there's no work, and no daughter), I have a blast.

And I agree with the pizza and beer thing someone said. It's just how it supposed to be. lol.

So anyway, to sum it up. I drink, and I like it. yum.
