Nope. Nada. Zero. Zilch.

I don’t like the taste of alchohol. I don’t like the way it smells. I don’t like potentially not having control over my actions or feeling out of sorts. I don’t like being around drunk people. And I don’t like the attitude people have around it as a whole.

jubiebee : Man most of these responses got me looking like

 

I average 2-3 drinks a week, and we probably go to a bar once or twice a month. I really like drinking for taste’s sake (beer, wine, liquor, it’s all good) and enjoy the nice buzz after one or two drinks. It’s very much social for me. My Fiance loves making cocktails at home, we have friends we go bar hopping with and I certainly don’t mind that my Future In-Laws have gotten into the habit of breaking out a chilled bottle of white wine whenever they invite us over to chat. If only alcohol wasn’t empty calories and like…carcinogenic. Oh well!

I do, but I’m trying to curb it back. I was typically having 3 to 4 classes of red wine throughout the week and then on the weekends if Fiance go somewhere, we’do sample a few craft beers. Or I’d stick to wine or vodka soda. I was starting to think this was too much so I’m cutting back currently. Nothing during the week, maybe a few drinks on the weekend at an event. I plan to do a 30 day weight loss challenge and I plan on keeping drinking out of it.

Not many other drinkers in here, huh? Lol ; )

I definitely drink a lot less than I used to since I started dating my boyfriend since he doesn’t drink at all.  I’m not a huge wine drinker, maybe a glass or two a month.  I tend to like more of the “girly” drinks, like anything tropical, but even then I only have them once or twice a month since I count my calories.

I drink a beer or two on Friday night after dinner, and have a glass of wine once or twice a month. I don’t like getting drunk but I DO enjoy being a little tipsy- I know my limit and I stick with my regular drinks so I never get drunk. 

I have never partied though, and I’ve never  actually been to a bar.

I don’t drink anymore. I used to drink fairly regularly and then it got to be a little too much after my ex and I broke up. I have alcoholics in my family, so I was afriad I was heading in that direction and started toning it down. My Fiance doesn’t drink at all, so when he moved in with me, it was pretty easy for me to stop completely. Now I hate the smell of alcohol, and I really don’t miss drinking at all, thankfully.

I used to be more of a drinker, but o hardly ever drink now. Can’t really remember the last times I drank. My profession includes a lot of happy hour events, but I rarely drink anymore. I used to drink more socially (2 drinks at happy hour a few times a week) plus a few drinks on the weekend.

I usually go out 3 times a week where I drink around 3-4 drinks and then a couple more throughout the week so about 12 drinks per week.

Maybe once a month? I drink to get buzzed (I don’t see why bother drinking alcohol if that is not your intent) so I usually order a martini or a glass of wine. I hate getting a mixed drink and it’s really weak or it take forever to drink.. I only drink if I go out to dinner (I don’t always get a drink when I go out). My tolerance is so low I only need one martini to get sufficiently buzzed for a few hours. #lightweight

Never. My husband is in recovery for alcoholism and even when I go out with my girlfriends and he isn’t with me, I do not drink because it is not something I enjoy.

jubiebee :  I’ll have a shot (read gulp) if I’m sick to burn the back of my throat.  Love that sensation on a sore throat.  That’s it for me, generally.  Last drink I had was moonshine tasting with my sister, but that was a real one-off for me.

I used to drink a lot in my younger years (I’m 35) but ever since I’ve been with my Fiance I hardly drink at all. He’s older than me and not much of a drinker anymore either. We’ll have a cocktail here and there if it’s a special occasion. I used to love beer and I loved to catch a buzz/get drunk but now I hate the feeling and avoid it at all costs. I also have completely lost my taste for beer. I only drink frufru drinks on the rare occasion that I drink.

Rarely. Thinking about it now, I think the last drink I had was on vacation in Mexico in May. Darling Husband drinks regularly, so I don’t really have anything against it, but it’s just not something I enjoy.

My man maled me delicious drinks when I go over to his place since he has an entire bar at his house but I will never drink otherwise…so before him, damn near never…after him, probably once a week or so (and they aren’t strong).
