So what's your situation with alcohol? What drinks do you like? How often do you consume it? Are you a social drinker, an everyday drinker, a beer-kinda-person, etc.?

Share your thoughts on alcohol and its consumption.:)

I am a huge Beer fan:cln: I especially like the Lebanese beer:

And, of course, Red Wine:

And I don't like other alcoholic beverages :p

I'm more of a social drinker myself, it's more on special occasions and on hangouts.;) When out with friends in pubs and clubs, I normally have 2 bottles of beer and a shot, maximum.

Never got drunk in my life.;)

I don't drink save for the odd glass of wine during weddings or at Christmas. However, I don't like people who binge drink and I don't like society's attitude towards people who don't drink.

I like to have a glass of wine in the evening one or two days a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less. If I'm not feeling too poor, I'll get a bottle of whiskey or rum and have it on-the-rocks instead of wine.

In the UK, it's 5+ to drink alcohol in your homes. 18+ to drink it outside your home ;)

I hardly ever drink alcohol. I average probably under one glass a year.

Every now and then people try to get me to drink another glass of beer, in which situation I may have one or two sips of theirs but never drink a glass. Nobody I've talked to liked beer the first time they drank it, but apparently saw it as a necessary custom to adopt in order to be (able to be) social. This in itself I think is such a sad thing that I almost make it a principle not to get accustomed to the taste of beer.

I love Baileys, Limoncello and Amaretto and Coke :cln:

I like lagers, but I hate Magners, I think it tastes bad, I'm also not fussed about wine.
I prefer alcopops or sprits though, like WKD, vodka, punches, Bacardi Breezers etc. because I prefer the sweetness and fruitiness to the taste of fermented drinks.

The National Minimum Drinking Age Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Minimum_Drinking_Age_Act_of_1984) which basically told all US states that they had to raise their drinking age to 21 or they would lose federal funding for highways. But, I don't know why the law was made.

Besides some alcoholic drinks contain certain minerals and vitamins that we need :) Take Guinness for example, it contains Iron :)
And alcohol is fine in small doses :)

It sounds like it had something to do with drink driving - I'm slightly surprised that it was made that recently - it's probably also something to do with the Conservative resurgence of the 1980s as well.

I like alcohol. Probably drink more than I should at times but oh well. It helps with a lot of my symptoms that doctors won't bother to help, like chemical anxiety and insomnia due to pain.

I like Lambrusco wine... it's probably my very favourite wine ever. :D I love Malibu Caribbean rum, at least the coconut and melon flavours (haven't tried any others but I'm sure I'd like them too). Malibu is probably one of my favourite alcohols ever. I also like Irish cream, but I'm trying to find which one tastes best. As far as harder liquors go I like Iceberg corn vodka and Vikingfjord lemon-flavoured potato vodka (think it's potato anyways).

Oooh, my kind of thread.

My favourite drink is without a doubt Rum, I pretty much have it every single time I drink alcohol, mixes perfectly with most things, my favourite brand being Morgans Spiced.

Other drinks I favor for include; vodka, alcopops, cocktails, shots (both weak and strong) and Southern Comfort. I'll drink pretty much anything when I'm drunk though, except for beer/lager. I despise the stuff.

Me and my boyfriend just tried a nice 70cl of Smirnoff Blueberry Vodka the other night, which got me quite tipsy, rather quick, and the stuff is amazing with lemonade, it's without a doubt on my top three drinks now, I'd totally recommend it :tmb:

So yeah, I wouldn't survive a Friday the 13th film, go figure, that's what living in Scotland gets you :p.

I hate beer, but I love red wine. I have a lot of bottles from my grandpa who makes his own wine, and I've slowly getting through it. No one else in my family drinks, but I have a tendency to overindulge because it takes the edge off my anxiety. Hey, I gotta treat that neurosis somehow.

I do drink every now and then but I would say once or twice every few months, I rarely get drunk though as I'm blessed with the ability to know whether I've had enough or I haven't.

I do drink red wine quite alot but not all the time or every single day like my mum...I like alchopops like bacardi breezers and smirnoff ice.

Being Scottish, a student and 21 years of age it's fair to say I have never ever consumed a single drop of alcohol... in about 48 hours. Which was some delicious Smirnoff Blueberry Vodka mixed with lemonade. I'm very much a social drinker and enjoy a good night out/in with friends, but I tend to get drunk very, very easily and humiliate myself one way or another. I enjoy drinking rum, vodka, tequila, alcopops, shots but I do not like wine or beer. Rat ****.

I drink high end beer pretty much exclusively... Belgian ales (Strong dark, Tripel etc...), German Hefeweizen, and American Craft Brews. Basically, if it's made in a 200,000 square foot factory, I want no part of it, because then it's just cheap, mass-produced crap.

whats so great about getting high? I see my friends getting drunk and as they do they pass out, puke up or something bad like that and they feel horrible after, I don't see any reason for it, I don't crave for alcohol one bit, doesnt attract me at all...

Watching people drunk when sober is the single worst pass time, it's embarrassing to watch them. So that's why you don't like it probably :)

Passing out, puking, and hangovers don't happen when you drink moderately.

That my friend, is drinking too much alcohol ;). The great thing about getting high is the fact that your whole body just slumps, feels like the best massage ever :p.

I love that moment where you drank enough to feel really happy and outgoing (specially considering I'm so shy), but not to feel "out of control". Unfortunately, that can be a difficult balance.
I find the best thing to avoid crossing the line is, like you say, to drink AND eat.

I'm a social drinker I guess, seeing as no alcohol is allowed in my house and I only get a chance at a friends house.

I've only ever tried Vodka, WKD, Strongbow and apple sourz. I hated the Strongbow. Have never been able to take a full can even in a tipsy state :Z Love vodka! Smirnoff. <3

Wine and mix drinks are the only thing I care to handle these days. If I were to drink beer, I have to keep tricking myself into believing it tastes good at all and struggling with that isn't something I'm willing to waste money over.

I don't understand alcohol or why people drink it, I mean it's poison basically. I've tried some and hate it every time I did

Poison only if you drink it alot, every single day and in lots of amounts. But you can drink alcohol almost every day as long as you don't over do it.

People drink it, cause it tastes good, it's a good nightcap, it's very refreshing specially if you feel down and you've had a busy day so it helps you relax too.

5 years ago I felt the same way due to my dad being a drunk...But I learned to see the positives well why people drink it and I've learned to control myself. As long as your in control, take certain amounts (as well as taking into account the certain type of alcohol it is whether it's wine or whiskey or vodka) and not overdoing it then your fine.

Of course it might sound like I'm saying it's ok to drink alcohol sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't but if you don't wanna drink alcohol that's completely your choice. :)

Can't say I like it, no. Don't mind that others enjoy it, but I'm sick to death of the drinking pressure nowdays.

I used to drink hard liquor by the bottle a few years back. It turned me into an asshole, I'd be depressed, I'd do stupid ****. I never passed out or blacked out either - it was a curse. I was never in my life able to have just one drink. I've got an addictive personality that whenever I experience something I perceive to be enjoyable, such as that buzz you achieve from the first beer/shot/glass of wine, I immediately want more. And more was what I would do... with everything.

..why do you think I'm still here?

Sure is. Also can be quite hilarious, but not in a good way for them, or the person watching the poor sod.

Plus, I've never enjoyed being with someone who is drunk, and I find the eyes of drunk people really disturbing. (How they can't focus, etc)

I used to drink when it was a no-no for me, when I was 16. But, when I turned 18 I saw what everyone really looked like when drunk and stopped, because I looked like that too. Jeez, it's just quite embarrassing to think about now.

The only good thing alcohol ever does for me is make me just feel comfortable. I always feel uncomfortable and feel like crap, but with a bit of drink I just don't feel like crap and so depressed anymore. But it's pointless because it's only temporary, often with bad consequences.

I don't drink now. Even if I wanted to, which I don't really, I wouldn't have much of a chance to 'cos I ain't got nobody to go out to a pub or club with, and drinking alone is just quite sad, IMO, because it's usually for all the wrong reasons.

I love having a beer with my buddies. I'm really into wheat beers and various kinds of ales. I live in close proximity to Stone Brewing, so I have a pretty good selection of great craft brews close at hand.

My overall favorites though are Sam Adams Boston Lager, Summer Ale, and Noble Pils; Killian's, and Stone Imperial Russian.

Hard liquor I'm not big on. Unless it's Maker's Mark.

The thing is, most of the time when you're out in a club, party or pub you're all drunk - so you're all looking a bit silly, but because everyone is drunk no one is going to judge you to be honest!

There's nothing better than after a hard term at college than going out on a night with friends, just letting go and having a right hard laugh. Plus I never tend to get a hangover the next morning, so win win.

I drink :)

I usually drink vodka and coke, but also drink wine - usually white or rosť as I don't like red so much ( I can drink it but prefer not to). Sometimes I might have a beer at night whilst working/watching TV - usually either Budweiser or Stella. I'm quite lucky in that I don't get hungover but I'm not sure if that is because I switch to water for an hour or so before I come home... that might be why? I dunno.
