Do you drink every day? A beer with dinner? a half rack with dinner? sipping a nice cognac by the fire? Weekends only?

I try to go booze free during the week. (Unless I'm having a microwave burrito for dinner, in which case you must have beer).

I go in streaks. I'll go several weeks with having 1-2 beers almost every day with dinner/TV after. Then I'll go several weeks with maybe 1-2 beers over the entire period.

I've had 3 beers in the past month and a half. Only reason I had them was due to the fact I was shopping for my RMSS monkey and saw a couple IPA's I couldn't say no to. :)

1 or 2 a day. Lately has only been one. Weekends, all bets are off - but I'm normally so busy that its only 3 or 4. Can't remember the last time I was actually DRUNK.

I also enjoy scotch a lot, and occasionally I'll have wine with dinner.

Back when I was in college, weekends would be a 30 rack of Pabst plus whatever else was readily available once the PBR was gone. It also wasn't uncommon for me to be out till last call on Monday or Tuesday, or Wednesday, well, any day that ended in Y.

I have a beer sometimes while I wrench. I haven't had a drink in a few weeks, I think. I used to drink a lot more when I was married, is that bad?

I don't drink. I've never been drunk. I'm the son (grandson, great grandson, nephew, great nephew) of an alcoholic. I am stinkboy's anti-thesis.

Yeah I haven't been drunk in years....that I can remember anyway. (Though I wake up naked in strange places a lot not knowing how I've gotten there. Hmmmm)

But yeah. I likes me da scotch. A beer or two (or 3) over the course of a Saturday.....maybe a beer on a week day.

Of course the holidays are upon us. Coffee will start having Bailey's in it.....The sun's over the yard-arm somewhere in the world!

I drink a lot, usually only on the weekends. Weekdays are maybe 1-2 beers a week... Although now that I've got furlough days the 3rd Wednesday of every month, there will be a certain Tuesday night when the beers in my fridge are no longer safe.

I don't drink on weekdays much, maybe 2 beers once in a while. On weekends I'll have a 12 pack on a Saturday and maybe a whiskey. But I see a difference between getting drunk and totally hammered/blacking out. I haven't blacked out since college. I still have hazy nights once in a while but with a few reminders from friends it will all come back to me.

My tolerance is really high though, I grew up in Wisconsin. So a 12pk for me is like a 6pk for people here in Colorado.

The last time I was drunk was at my buddy's bachelor party and it was bad. I got sick and everything. That was enough for me to decide I am too old to be that stupid. I catch the occasional buzz, but not stupid.

I'll buy beer like groceries. 1 or 2 every other day. I had 2 beers and a glass of wine last night. we had company...

My tolerance seems to be dropping. When I was swingin single my roomy and i would split at least a 6 pack per day and wake up feeling fine. Three beers gets me a little chattier nowadays....

I got stupid about a month ago. Out at a "lounge" for the first time in ages. Got a little belligerent with an attitudy quebecoise about whether or not i could/should be considered a quebecker.

I don't "just let it go" when I'm drunk. AKA become a bit of an azzhole.

Been a long time since I've yacked.

I drink a lot by some peoples standards & not a lot by some other people.

With that being said I usually drink 2-3 beers a night or 1/2 a bottle of wine a night, on weeknights.
On weekends I can start drinking at 11am & go all day, but I am always in bed by 9 & rarely drunk.

Together we prolly spend way too much money on booze.

ummm....Not sure if it was May or June but you slept in a puddle of your own vomit under the tree at the House.

I drink almost everyday, some Mondays I will not have anything to drink, some days I will have 1-4 beers(had 2 last night) and then weekends or random weeknights I get the party started and lose count. Typical Plattekill/Delta House weekend myself and cookiedough can kill 5 30 packs of Labatt Blue, no joke.

Maybe 4-5 once during the week over an evening. And then on friday and saturday, you can expect me to down 6+ each night.

Not too proud of it, but it sure is fun. I'm in college now, tho. I can't wait for the real world to show me what's up.

Not like I used to for sure. I loves me some beer, but ever since my accident it does not love me back. The only thing I can figure is something didn't get put back in quite the right place, anything with carbonation = killer heart burn. Used to be big time home brewer too. I have discovered since however the joys of a good whiskey and tequila. I have not tried scotch, I shall have to experiment. I might have a beer or 2 during the work week, weekends is Whiskey Old Fashioned time.


This stuff is too good to mix with anything:

Probably 3 beers a night usually, or wine... a couple or 3 glasses. Or both.

Weekends... more than that.

I drink a 6pack a week. Sometimes it takes 6 days to drink, other times it takes 2 hours.
I'm kinda the same way. I rarely will go through the whole thing in 2 hours, but I quite often buy a six pack on the weekend for football. Some weeks it'll be gone by Monday night. Some weeks I'll have one with dinner every night.

I guess I'm not really as regular as a six pack per week. But I probably get 3/month.

Sometimes I just get really thirsty I guess. Tuesday I brought home a sixer of Sierra Nevada and sat down to watch a couple episodes of Dexter on DVD. After it ended I went to grab another beer and they were all gone. I had to go count my empties because I couldn't believe I drank them all that fast but I had. Didn't feel like I had drank that many either.

Since it's considered a communist act/sin to watch football without beer, Im pretty much doomed to a life of heavy drinking since I watch so much football.
But that's okay, because I make sure to eat plenty of pork and cheese to cancel out the alcohol.
I usually drink wine when Im writing, reading, tying flies or playing on the internet at night... things Im working on tend to come out better that way, plus it's basically the only way I can fall asleep.

Before I get to my amount, allow me to fill you in on my "profession". Since I'm a pit boss at a Lake Tahoe casino, I see almost daily what happens when folks drink way too much. Our service standard is that the cocktail servers make rounds about every 20 minutes, so if you have a drink every round, you get the idea. Also, having worked every shift, I know that the majority of drunkedness happens after midnight (go figure).

That being said, I spread my intake out-- maybe a beer a night/every other night, or if it's a day off and nothing to do early the next day, I may have 3 or 4. Then I might go a week without anything. Guess it all depends on the mood......
