How much do you drink and what do you drink?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by KingOvHell, Sep 26, 2008.

  1. obviously alcohol related.

    I usually drink everyday. I dont get drunk though, i just likke to get a little buzz. I only get drunk about once a week.

    I use to be a huge beer guy but recently i have been drinking gin and whiskey straight from the bottle. Alot less filling and alot less carbs and calories.

    I drink most friday and saturdays, rarely during the week anymore.

    Mostly red headed sluts, gin, and coors light.

    I just drank two Newcastles & a triple of Jack (neat), I might have another ale & a shot or two more of Jack. Two or three times a week I'll have one or the other of the aforementioned drinks, but tonight I'm two-fistin' it 'cuz I've had a hard week & I need to decompress quickly. I only drink like this at home.

    5 years ago I used to drink about every friday and saturday (and sometimes tuesdays) until I was as drunk as I could be then I met my ex and stop doing it cause wanted be sober in case something happens while been with her. I tried to recover those lost weekends with no alcohol but my body is not the one that used to be... hangovers are hell nowadays :D I don't drink that much now but keep doing it fridays and saturdays and some other days when meet some friends.

    Mainly drink beer, vodka, wine, rum or pisco.

    I would consider myself a habitual drinker - I drink some every night. Weekdays, I usually grab a beer after I get home, and I sometimes have another one during dinner. My wife and I will usually share a bottle of wine after the kids have crashed. Friday and Saturday evenings it's typically Jack and Diet Pepsi until we go to bed (1AM-ish, usually). My wife and I enjoy drinking, and like the occasional opportunity to get a good drunk on - not incoherent, out-of-control drunk, but certainly a long way from sober.
  7. My amount of drinking is directly related to whether or not I am in school.

    In school = maybe Fridays, almost always Saturdays (6-10 beer)

    Out of school = any day is game, 3-5 times a week (3-12)

  8. Used to be a quart of Jim Beam and half a 12 pack on fridays, the rest of the beer when I wake up saturday, then another quart of beam and half another 12 pack saturday night, then 6 beer leftover for band practice sundays. Now it varies a lot more depending on where I'm drinking and what's available, from 4x40oz 10% beers in the alley, to a quart of jag at the bar......

    I like turtles.
    As a music student, any night is fair game. It is usually later in the week though (Thursday/Friday/Saturday), and I will only get wasted if I don't have a lecture the following morning - I usually try to avoid getting hammered at all, but sometimes it just happens...

    What I drink varies on what mood I/the rest of my flatmates are in. I drank a bottle of white wine last night, but usually it is straight spirits - brandy, cognac, white rum, spiced rum, bourbon, whisky, liquors - anything really. My favourite is Grand Marnier.

    However, I am also partial to cocktails, although I find that once I start drinking cocktails, I always get smashed.
  10. Gotta be straight out of the bottle, room temp for me.

    I had an ex who made me quit drinking and I haven't really gotten into the habit of it since.

    When I do drink its usually Makers Mark and some beer.

    I used to drink a lot. Beer, Scotch, Gin in the Summer, Wine, Armingac.
    Got tired of it not too long ago. I don't feel or act any differently, but I'll stick to gingerale for now.

    One or two drinks a month normally. During football season, I may have a beer on Sunday or Monday if we are out somewhere watching the game.

    If there's a beer near me, chances are that I'll drink it. It really just hinges on how close I am to beer at any given time. How often is that?

    At least a couple of times a week.

    I drink every day, usually twice, just with meals or if I'm hanging out with friends. I'm a beer snob and won't drink Bud or similar if it's all that's available. Mostly it's the stuff I make myself or from a reputable brewery (Avery, Rogue, Bell's, Great Divide, any of the Belgians).

    I hate being drunk. If I accidentally get tipsy I'll usually refrain for a couple days because I find it so distasteful.
