I don’t have anything against adults drinking responsibly…
I just don’t like the feeling. It is not a nice feeling at all to me. Yeah, I giggle my pants off, but I giggle my pants off without alcohol too. Other than that it makes me really sleepy, light headed, and gives me head aches. Aka: not. fun.
I never have and never will understand why so many people enjoy it so much. I remember the first time I got drunk being so let down! haha.
Anyone else with me on this one?

I didn’t feel like this the first time or the next 200 times, but I definitely agree with you now.

@freshflowers: I don’t enjoy getting drunk often but on the right occassion I love loosening up with a few drinks! It makes me more social and helps me dance! Ha!
But don’t get me wrong, I have had a handful of times worshiping the porcelian throne saying “I’m never drinking again!”

I used to enjoy getting drunk but in the past few months I have started to feel really sick when I start drinking, even if it is only a glass of wine. So, I guess I don’t enjoy it anymore..I especially don’t enjoy being hungover.

I agree with you, I have never understood it at all. I’m a light weight, one drink is enough for me. I’ve been out with friends who say “I’m not drunk enough to dance yet” or all the people who talk about dry weddings because they won’t have fun without alcohol. I have never had a problem dancing or enjoying myself sober. FI cousin had a cash bar wedding (only beer was provided without charge) so I just didn’t drink anything and I was on the dance floor all night!
When I see people stumbling around, or looking nauseous, even puking I can’t help but wonder why didn’t you just stop 3-4 drinks ago? Why do you keep going? I don’t get what is so appealing about drinking until you are sick.

I definitely don’t like being really drunk. Just a couple drinks is perfect for me. At my bachelorette I got completely wasted and it was not fun at all!

I used to love drinking in college. Now I get so dehydrated and suffer from horrible hangovers. Plus my mother is a recovering alcoholic so it really don’t appeal to me that much. Not to say I won’t have a drink if I’m at a work social but I can easily go to a bar with friends and just have water/pop.

I don’t like being drunk, but I LOVE being super tipsy! (Though I haven’t drank since May and won’t be drinking for a loooong time in the forseeable future!)

@freshflowers: …nobody likes being around a person that’s had one too many, and that person will certainly hate themselves for it in the morning…I like drinking, but getting sloshed is not something that’s ever on my agenda for the night.

I love having a few drinks. But I have never understood the folks who slam back the alcohol and get to the point where they are slurring and stumbling around the room. I don’t see the appeal.

@freshflowers: I don’t HATE being drunk but I HATE HATE HATE being hungover so I usually try to avoid it all together. I like getting a small buzz going, but still be able to get up early the next day and carry on with life without nausea and a pounding headache 🙂

I hate it, because I don’t like feeling ‘out of control’ and it makes my body feel like garbage aha.

@freshflowers: I am SO with you. I don’t mind being a bit buzzed, but, for me, there is an extremely fine line between “hey, I’m buzzed and feeling good” to either feeling sick or wanting to pass out.
I have never been able to figure out how to manage just keeping that nice buzzed feeling – so, in general, I don’t really drink. In a way it sucks, because when I’m with a group that drinks socially, I’m looked at like I’m a wet blanket.
It definitely makes for some “lame” NYEs (reference to the another post from this morning)…

Keeping a nice buzz going is fun but getting wasted is just not my cup of tea anymore. I can’t stand not having control and behaving in a foolish manner. I also don’t like the hangovers the next day! Now that I’m in my thirties they’re absolutely terrible and I’m out of commission for the whole day.

Yeah I’m not a fan of being drunk either. A few drinks over a few hours is nice but when I start losing any motor control it’s father gone than i want to be.
