That may sound like a dumb question, but I am kind of a teetotaler. I drank a ton in college, then just sort of lost the taste for it. Right now, I have a bulging disc in my neck and have to wear a c collar to sleep. It’s really painful, and my neurologist gave me 30 percocets. He said it’s fine to take 2, and to not have more than one drink with dinner, but to basically do what it takes to sleep through the night without taking the collar off.
I just took 2 pills and had a glass of wine and I feel FANFREAKINTASTIC!
Do you like to drink to unwind? Do you just drink socially? Are you like me and barely drink at all? just curious! I kind of feel like I’ve been missing out!

As a happy drunk, yes, I like a social buzz. 🙂 But I don’t get estatic if I’m hammered. I have a very fine line between being happy and falling asleep prematurely. Not sure what it is. Doesn’t take much either. A beer or 2 and I’m super cheerful and think I’m insanely funny. My dad is the same way.

I like getting tipsy, but not in losing control.

I voted “to relax a bit”. I love slowly sipping on a glass of wine after dinner, or while on the phone with my Fiance
I hate the way I feel after a night of drinking. I am hoping not to drink too much at our wedding 🙂

my besty introduced me to the wonders of a glass of wine or two before bed. 🙂 I now always have some white zin in the fridge if I need a glass after a rough day. I rarely every get REALLY schwasted anymore.

I used to, but I don’t find the hangovers worth it anymore. Losing two days for a few hours of drinking just don’t equate to me.

I drink socially or sometimes when Darling Husband and I are out for a nice dinner. Darling Husband is allergic so I’ve kind of strayed away from the drinking scene as much because he doesn’t enjoy being around a lot of drunk people.
When I drink I’ll have a glass of wine at home if I want to relax. With dinner I’ll sometimes have a martini. If I have 2 martinis I’ll get a little buzz. I HATE feeling drunk/hungover.

@CholeLeAnn: actually, I plan not to drink a lot the day of the wedding.

I do enjoy getting drunk occasionally. My hangovers really aren’t bad.

I like to get buzzed, not drunk – and yes, there is a difference! I don’t want to not remember what I did/said the next day or be hungover. I’ve never gotten to the point where I’ve thrown up or felt awful the next day. I prefer to keep it that way, too!

@tksjewelry: same. Every year I get older, my hangovers get worse. It takes fewer drinks to give me a hangover nowadays. I do enjoy getting a little buzz, like after a couple glasses of wine, but dont really like getting drunk anymore. Last night was probably the drunkest I’ve been in a while, but I wasn’t hungover today because I didnt drink too much.

My days of losing control are behind me, for the most part. I don’t drink often. I never have booze in the hosue and SO rarely drinks. I drink at occasions like birthday parties, the occasional girls night out, holidays and that’s it. So maybe a handful of times each year. I used to go out every weekend when I was younger (I’m 27 now) so maybe I got all the partying out of my system lol.

It’s funny… I keep a bottle of Bombay Sapphire in the freezer for my parents, a bottle of good rum for baking, and we are always given wine, but I never drink any of it! I may need to start experimenting to help unwind!

I can’t handle drinking any more. A couple of months ago SO and I had drinks at home (ie 2 drinks for me) and I woke up with a hangover. How embarassing :S

I was raised in a super conservative home, so I didn’t really drink much until I turned 21. My 21st birthday party I was ill, so this year (my 23rd) we partied hardy. It was so much fun. I’ve never been so drunk in my life! But, I’m so responsible with my drinking. I make other people drive if I’m tipsy, I make sure I dont’ work the next day if I plan to have more than a few, etc. I don’t want to be stupid and regret something, but I wanna let loose!
