Why Can't I Drink?

    I guess I'm kind of the opposite of an alcoholic. I seem to have a very non-addictive personality (which I am very grateful for) but I have always had a hard time drinking....even socially. I meet friends for drinks, but I can rarely finish one drink. Usually by the second drink I start to feel kind of "sick" for lack of a better word. There are times when I can drink several beers and I feel great but most of the time I just get repulsed by it. It's not that I don't like the taste of it really. I've had some fantastic tasting drinks but I've just never been able to drink all night like most people. As I've gotten older, I'm able to drink a bit more but when I was in my early 20's I couldn't even finish a beer. Oddly enough, I seem to tolerate straight tequila or whiskey best. On nights when I am able to drink, I get drunk VERY easily. Sometimes I feel like some kind of freak for being this way. Is anyone else like this?

    If you want to drink socially, try to discover your taste. Is it juicy or creamy? Is it boozy or sweet?

    I prefer a glass of champagne and a shot of St. Germaine but the the fermentation remnants in champagne sometimes make me sick. So I would order a juicy sweet cocktail, drink a quarter of it and my man would finish the rest.

    I can't even stand the smell of alcohol so I can't drink at all. But I don't mind. I don't feel like I miss out on anything. icon_neutral.gif

    Go back to your basement you stupid cunt. You actually think masculinity equates with drinking large amounts of alcohol? Nevermind, of course you do.....because you're really that stupid. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Back to the original topic of this thread, maybe you haven't found the right drink yet. For example, I don't love beer, but I can drink bourbon all night. My family is a bunch of scotch drinkers.

    Also, maybe you're too fulfilled in life. I used to only drink socially, but now after the break-up, I'm drinking hard liquor about 3-4 times a week after work.

    That doesn't sound like a drinking problem.

    I'd be more worried if something like the above was happening icon_idea.gif

    Beer is just kinda gross anyway.… Try some different wines. Red preferably… LOL. Learn to appreciate the different flavours, nuts, woods, berries etc. Or sample different single malt scotches. You don't need to pound them, but if you appreciate the different 'notes' then it makes them something finer than just pouring moonshine in ones gullet! LOL. icon_smile.gif

    Wine is actually one of the worst for me. Someone suggested that it was the sulfites in it but not really sure. I do drink wine but I can't drink much at a time.

    As I mentioned in my opening post, I can drink straight tequila, whiskey or even scotch without as much of a problem. Maybe one day I can be masculine enough to do Meth like Pazzy. LOL

    Lol you're not alone at all. I can't stand beer, maybe except for Heineken. I only like sweet fruity girly drinks (Coconut Mojitos, Pump Tini or Apple Martini, Cosmo) lol but yeah after like 2 sweet drinks, I'm done. I can't do Tequila or whiskey at all. Last straight party I went to, some dude was trying to pour me several Patron shots, I was like *bitch please, I took some Remy Martin/Champagne shot instead. But yes, know your limits and don't get a DUI.

    Wow! I thought you could drink, Radd! That was quite surprising, haha!

    Contrary to some of the comments from above, masculinity is not. measured completely or partly by being able to drink or not.

    My grandma was able to drink a lot and she drank a lot during her lifetime. My female friends, tomboyish or feminine ones, are able to drink as well. Does that make them all manly? I think not! Lmao

    I only drink at weekends. Drinking during the week makes me feel lousy. Maybe it just feels more rewarding to have a drink at the weekend - I've put in a good week's worth of work, now it's time to kick back and have a few drinks. I certainly can't enjoy a drink if I know I have to get up tomorrow, so I'll have a nice relaxing herbal tea instead to help me sleep.

    And to be honest I prefer to have a quiet drink in to a noisy drink out. If I'm not going out, I'll overindulge and have some drinks while playing video games or watching a movie, which i enjoy, I don't have to worry about getting home afterwards. But if I go out I like to be in control of my faculties. And I'm not impressed by people saying "yeah, lets have another drink, have you tried this one yet?" it feels like peer pressure, and I'm too old for that.

    Sounds like you're a cheap date. Which is always preferable to being a cheap whore... icon_cool.gif

    I've a friend in the same situation...

    She doesn't drink much any more (in college, she could drink the best of us under the table) because she'd say she'd "lost the taste" for it...

    When she WOULD drink, she'd get inordinately wasted on very, very little... then be sick for days afterward.

    She went and saw a doctor, and they found her body chemistry was way WAY out of whack. She's undergoing some testing and treatments now, but the working theory is that a heavy round of antibiotics some time ago totally wiped out her necessary bacteria in her stomach and intestines. That has led to vitamin absorption issues and that has led to some organ damage.

    Long and the short of it, buddy... don't just chalk it up to "not liking" to drink... see a doctor. It's worth checking out and worth knowing if you've got something going on.

    My partner is the same way. He gets clearly (slightly) drunk off one drink. Two and he's floating. But it clears up quickly, too. He enjoys the taste of some drinks but just doesn't need or desire much of it. Great for me. I get a live-in designated driver. And he's never legally drunk. And I moderate my drinking a bit (sometimes) because of it. All good.

    His parents visited a couple of months ago. His mom was the same way and an aunt is, too, I gather. It's either that they weren't much exposed to alcohol as a kid, thus never developing a taste/tolerance for it, or, just a genetic thing.

    He also reacts strongly to drugs of any sort. I once gave him a muscle relaxer that I consider little more than a tic-tac and he was limp for two days (please, no sophomoric jokes, guys). So I think for him the alcohol thing is genetic. But like so many things that question nature v nurture, some of both may be in play.

    My brother is a lot like that, too, but in his case I think he just doesn't like the feeling of being drunk. High, yes, but not drunk.
