    i work too much.
    I'm definitely drinking when I get off this morning at 7:30AM.
    It's been a long, long 54 hour shift.

    Sometimes alcohol is the only thing that will cure the ridiculousness of my crazy work schedule.

    I don't drink heavily very often. I don't have the stamina I had 10 years ago lol. Back then my consumption was concentrated on weekends.
    Now I enjoy alcohol moderately (occasionally on weekdays too), however I don't drink every day, but it's not unusual for me to have a few beers or glasses of wine with dinner or an evening snack if I feel like it.

    These days I only drink when I'm out socially (which isn't often!) and even then it's one or two glasses of wine.

    I don't drink very often unless it's a social drink at a restaurant or bar.
    I've gotten drunk twice this year...and both times were because I was hitting on a guy who's sexuality was unknown to me, and I figured alcohol might help matters just a wee bit. icon_biggrin.gif

    I used to drink a lot almost died started drinking crazy again and then I got bored of it and now drinking 2 glasses of wine get me drunk and I go to sleep and as for how often I drink I rarely do, but if I'm in Europe I have a glass with dinner.

    hmmm. interesting question. I'm beginning to feel I've been drinking too often again. It happens. It's expensive (NYC)... and leaves me feeling drained the following day. Not uncommon for me to have 3-4(?) mixed drinks a few (3?) times a week. Not every day... but when I go out with friends. I don't get real hangovers often - but def don't feel "great" the following day or two.

    I'd rather smoke pot - but recently that's been leaving me feeling sluggish/tired the following day. Perhaps a month of sobriety is in order. Hmmmm. icon_neutral.gif

    I usually have one "drunk" night a week, where I'm definitely wasted.

    Of course, I'll get a glass of wine or two if I'm out to dinner any other night of the week or had a particularly annoying day at work.

    A great reason to drink.... but basically what you are saying is its about peer pressure, you feel like you should because others do it.

    I don't do it, hardly ever have. The last time I had any major drink was at Thanksgiving in 2007. Had some great wine, I think I had 2 glasses.

    The reality is, I have nothing (nothing at all) against my friends who drink, so long as they are responsible with it. It's kind of funny to watch those who are drinking.
    It just isn't a part of who I am and I'm absolutely comfortable with it.

    I usually have a glass of wine every night with dinner. Though I generally have a massive bender every fortnight or so

    haven't had a drop in over 14 years now.... drank enough before that to compensate, so no worries.

    I've never had a desire to drink. The stuff smells revolting.

    You may want to find something else to do or someplace else to live. I live in New Orleans and a lot of people assume we drink 24/7. I rarely drink - maybe a total of 6 drinks per year and the last time I got drunk was when I was a senior in college. I've got better things to do in my life.
