I'm starting to think I might drink too much.

#2 Posted by captjim (129 posts) -

three or four times a week.

#3 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Every other day, but I have a problem. I can't afford to drink everyday.

I stopped drinking just because at some point after my last Beer Tequlia binge I realized I didn't like drinking all that much, I'd rather smoke a blunt every now and then, good mood chilled out no hangover and you can sit back and laugh your ass off at all your drunk friends being drunk.

i also live in louisiana which is the only state where getting drunk is so required that there are drive-thru daiquiri places.

@Evilsbane: I can respect that. I mostly drink out of total boredom but I have been especially bored recently...

Never.

#9 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

As the unofficial babysitter and problem solver of my group of friends, It's rare that I get drop dead wasted. I'd say once every three or four months.

I've never gotten drunk nor do I see the appeal of "getting drunk," since all it does in my view is increase the chances of inducing liver disease (not to mention the possibility of respiratory failure or brain deterioration if you consume excessive amounts of alcohol).

#11 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

@Devil240Z: What is your definition of "drunk". I have a beer or two or three every five or six days out of the week, but I only get really shit-faced hammered every year or two.

I drink every time I go to the city, which is once or twice a week. My friend and I have been celebrating his new place recently by getting drunk and playing co-op games. He also works at a bar, so we drink there fairly often.

But damn, drinking is expensive. Think of all the stuff I could have bought if I didn't spend stupid amounts of money on alcohol.

#14 Posted by mattyhochs (25 posts) -

Whenever I am in possession of alcohol.

#15 Posted by Devil240Z (3366 posts) -

@McGhee_the_Insomniac: I usually drink because I cant sleep. When I want to go to bed I usually have 3 or 4 good beers.

It's even worse the next day when you can't remember how in the world you spent that much money. Sometimes, I would wonder if I'd just dropped the money, and some lucky person found it on the floor.

Drinking is expensive in a bar. It cost me no more than $10 to get fully drunk.

How many days a week do you do this? Do you have cravings besides wanting to sleep?

Agreed, if there's nothing else to do ill drink a few beers and down some shots but getting "shit-faced" just...Bleh fuck that, I don't even really have bad hangovers but I hate waking up and going...well I Think I had fun last night...

#20 Posted by Swoxx (2999 posts) -

Out to clubs and/or parties? 3-4 times a month. At home? maybe once or twice a month. Depends on your definition of drunk. I never get shitfaced if I'm at home by my self, just get a nice buzz going and play some games.

#22 Posted by Jazzycola (662 posts) -

I have never been drunk really...but I got buzzed a couple times(twice?Maybe 3 times?) in high school but quit drinking Senior year which is ironically when most of my friends ended up starting. Haven't had a drop since.

I started doing it because I worked a night job and got off at around 2AM. I just wanted to fall asleep before the sun came up, but I was always so pumped up cause my job was pretty physical and I usually ate dinner right after I got home which I hear is bad for falling asleep. Now I just want to go to bed before midnight but I am never tired by then. So I basically just drink enough to get relaxed enough to fall asleep.@Evilsbane said:

Yeah I don't get shit faced. I don't remember the last time I had any sort of hangover.

Maybe things will change once I get a day job. I'm having a hard time adjusting to normal hours. I've been a total night owl for ever, but now there is just NOTHING to do at night. God damn getting older.

#24 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

About 3 times a year, I do not get drunk often but when I do I get DRUNK!

#25 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

every once in a while. i don't like drinking all that much.

#26 Posted by Deusoma (3006 posts) -

I drink at truly random intervals, but awesomely enough I'm tanked right now as I see this thread for the first time. 8D

#27 Edited by Castiel (2616 posts) -

Not that often actually. The times when I really do get drunk is actually when I least expect it. For example when me and some friends went over to a bar after school was over, just to have like one or two beers and maybe play some darts, you know nothing special, but then 14-15 beers later, and maybe even some shots, you're suddenly having a REAL good time and hey it's dark outside and I didn't even notice before now: congrats you're drunk as fuck.

When you got out with the intention of getting drunk, I always think it's too forced and I find it pretty difficult to get drunk in those situations, but when you're out with your friends just having fun, and nothing more, that is always the situation when things goes crazy and I wake up in bed with Jessica Alba and Mary Elizabeth Winstead or something like that...

#28 Posted by Abigailnn (52 posts) -

not very often, im a lightweight

#29 Posted by EVO (3908 posts) -

Yeah man, drinking to get to sleep is pretty bad. I don't have the facts on me, but you should get that looked into.

You're probably right but in the short term it seems better than being frustrated at my insomnia.

This is pretty much my exact response.

#33 Posted by allworkandlowpay (874 posts) -

I drink regularly, but I don't ever really drink to the point of any significant intoxication. If I'm out playing poker I'll drink maybe three beers in a three or four hour period. If I'm out playing some board games with friends, I'll usually share a pitcher of beer or two between three or four of us.

#34 Posted by Enigma777 (6073 posts) -

I've managed to cut down to 3-4 times a month. So proud of myself!

#35 Posted by ValiantGrizzly (498 posts) -

Buzzed every few months. Tops. Like maybe once or twice a year. I hate the feeling of being drunk, and I hate being around people who are drunk.
 
I'll take marijuana over alcohol anyday.

#36 Posted by SeriouslyNow (8534 posts) -

Never.

Drinking is for uptight people who can't enjoy a good time.

Oh wait, that's not drinking.

Always.

#37 Posted by IBurningStar (2173 posts) -

I don't drink.

#38 Posted by Rawrnosaurous (768 posts) -
I currently live in Ohio, which I'm guessing most people wouldn't hate it as much as I do but I grew up in California and right outside of London. So invariably this place is a lot more dull than where I grew up to facilitate said dullness they have tried to spice things up with drive thru liquor stores. Which I find immensely frightening it's like their daring people to drink and drive. 
 
More on topic however I tend to drink whenever possible, I don't get illegitimately drunk though. I've only gotten legitimately drunk maybe once if that, I think you need to distinguish between getting drunk and drinking though. One does not invariably lead to the other, I can drink for hours and not be drunk so unless your actively trying to be shit faced every time you put your lip to the bottle I think drinking often isn't terrible at all.

Every Friday night.

#40 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7096 posts) -

Never. Don't like the taste of alcohol at all.

#41 Posted by The_Hiro_Abides (1263 posts) -

Once or twice a year usually. When I was younger I used to go to drinking parties but now a days it's more of a novelty for me.

#42 Posted by JJWeatherman (14558 posts) -

Never. 'Cause fuck drunk people.

Although I've been considering joining them. 'Cause fuck me.

#43 Posted by pjacobson21 (198 posts) -

I only drink with friends,  so the amount of times I drink depends on how often my friends want to get together and drink.  Right now since I'm not in school this is at least every weekend and sometimes more, although I only really get drink like once maybe twice in these peak periods.  During the school year I'll drink maybe once a month, if that.  Honestly, all it takes is one really bad hangover, and I'm talking really bad as in throwing up all the next day bad, to make you reconsider drinking to get drunk every time you go out.

#44 Posted by Vodun (2370 posts) -

Depends on what you mean by drunk. I get inebriated quite often, but I rarely get real drunk and I've never been drunk enough to get a hang over or any other bad side effects. I like the taste of alcoholic beverages and a side effect of that is getting a bit tipsy. I never drink just for the sake of the buzz.

#45 Posted by Moth_Pope (455 posts) -

It's gotten to a point now where I don't go out and get really drunk unless it's an occasion. My friend's birthday last night for example. That was a big night with lots of drink... but on an normal night out I won't go overboard. The main reason for me is that I lost about 4 stone (that's 56lbs or so if you prefer that unit), through not drinking as much (and exercise obviously), so I don't like to go overboard anymore. Still fun to get wasted every now and then though.

The other day I'm at a liquor store to buy some wine for a spaghetti sauce I'm trying out, and this mostly toothless hillbilly on a moped pulls up the drive thru. He then starts counting out change on the windowsill and comes up some change short for a pint of rotgut vodka. The middle eastern store owner says "No problem, buddy." because he's apparently a regular. The jerk then goes on to rant about how he needs to learn English and how all these "a-rabs" coming to this country are taking our land. After the store owner kindly lets him go, I applaud him for not punching the fool off his moped through the window. I then saw the toothless fool take a sip from his bottle ON THE MOPED and drive off.

After I told the store owner he had way more patience than I would, he vented a bit and I apologized for my fellow countryman. He gave me a discount on the wine, too.

Anyways, you reminded me of that.

I don't drink.

#48 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5256 posts) -

Once or twice every few months. Six years ago it was a different story. It was like every night spending way too much money on booze.

I do not miss those mornings at all.

#50 Posted by Drakhir (410 posts) -

Never. I rarely drink and when I do I don't get to that state. I mean, what's the purpose?
