Because I like the taste of it? How come the most obvious reason imaginable is not on the list?

I never really get drunk. I just enjoy a couple when socializing or when watching sports.

I used to never drink because I hated the taste and the effects, still do. When I go out now though I just grab a beer and milk it the entire night, sometimes not even finishing it, so I don't have people pestering me to have a drink. I have nothing against alcohol but it does nothing for me.

Because I like it. People who don't just haven't found something they like; seriously guys, step away from the beer for a second and try something with a lick of class.

For the first 15 years of my life I had a medical condition called "non-alcoholism". So once I got into high school I started drinking to treat this condition. 21 now and the thrill of drinking just isn't the same as when I was underage.

I like a beer or some fancy drink sometimes. Though it's rare to see me drink these days so it only happens when something special is going on.

I like the taste of beer.

Also, I've been known to drink wine because it really accentuates certain meals better and really makes a great dining flavor.

like Jager, you're of course talking about yager....right?  
 
I drink because I like to wash away the bitter taste of disappointment, misery and loss that pervades my every waking moment. 
 
 
only kidding, 
  
It's actually because I hate myself and like to wake up to the feeling of my entire body fueled only by hate of itself, I then, in my hungover stupor, drive my body to hate itself even more by going for a jog, why? because,  
 
it's really horrible, really horrible.  
 
 
also, if you drink to the point of it being really toxic, you get this glorious feeling called the DT's, look it up kids, it makes you feel special...

No, that is so valid, being a heavy weight it is a flat out waste of money drinking it. A beer for me is like drinking expensive bad tasting soda.

Depends on the situation. Mostly it's at parties, so all social there, but I do enjoy the taste of rum and coke and basically every 'girly' drink.

I do it when a "social gathering" warrants , but even then sometimes I make some excuse to not drink or I just trick people by holding my halfway drink and serving just a little bit to keep it in the midle of the cup , so I choose don´t  I genuinely don´t like beer maybe some whine or whiskey mostly casual drinking of that can´t say I like either

I've seen what it's done to many in my family, so I don't touch that nasty shit. I can't believe such a deadly (to both drinker and innocent people) toxin is legal and other, less harmful substances aren't.

@chrismafuchris: Gin is my drink of choice and most people think I'm crazy for it, but I'd never drink gin straight. If there is one liquor never to do shots of, it's gin.

I don't, and I'm not sure I'll ever understand why some people do. Drink something healthier! Something that won't make you do stupid shit that you'll regret!

Love your liver, people.

you are generalizing Alcohol; not all Alcohol is "bitter". Have yourself a wine cooler or a mixed drink. There is honestly a "drink" for everyone.
 
I enjoy the taste and for social reasons.
