    I like alcohol, but I can live without it. I've only overindulged a few times (had a bad hangover only once in my life) and didn't really enjoy it. I don't understand why so many people of my acquaintance seem to be unable to enjoy themselves without alcohol - preferably as much as possible. These people's status updates on Facebook almost inevitably involve alcohol. I'm fairly sure I know quite a lot of social alcoholics. I just think there are ways to enjoy yourself which are a lot more interesting and involve a lot fewer pitfalls in terms of health, impact on your relationships with others, etc.

    I like to have a glass or two of wine or a good beer once in a while, but I don't like to get drunk. Of course, I've been drunk before, and it's not something I seek to do in the future. Everything in moderation.

    People who drink a lot give me the creeps. I have a really strong opinion about it being every bit as harmful (sometimes more harmful) than illegal drugs.

    When I was in my first few years of college - age 18-20 - I drank quite a lot. But I was also trying to be someone I wasn't, as I had had such a miserable social experience as a teenager. Once in college alcohol was my means to drown myself out and ease the anxiety and try to fit in with a group of people I wouldn't really be able to fit in with otherwise. Actually I had a lot of fun those years, so I don't really look at it all that unfavorably (just learning more about myself I guess), but eventually I realized what I was doing, and now I make sure that I only drink when I'm fully comfortable with the people I'm with.

    I really assess my motivation prior to drinking these days. On average I probably have one drink a week - two at the most. I do enjoy a glass of wine now and then.

    I really enjoy alcohol. I go through phases of drinking a lot (a couple of drinks on most days + getting drunk at least once a week) and I go through phases of not even remembering that alcohol exists. I enjoy getting buzzed/tipsy and I also enjoy being drunk. I've never had a problem with drinking till I black out/get sick/lose control; as I believe Unique said in the SP version of this thread, getting drunk without crossing the line is where it's at.

    I would never pressure anyone to drink, though, and I completely respect those who abstain. I don't think alcohol is necessary for a good time, and have no problem enjoying life sober. When I'm out with people who don't drink/drink moderately, I follow suit. Drunk people are probably only interesting to other drunk people, although I agree with the_state_i_am_in that drinking does not necessarily = people acting like assholes/idiots. AFAIK, alcohol has very little effect on my personality. I laugh easier and am slightly more talkative, but that's it.

    I don't drink. I ate some candy that had alcohol in it once, though.

    I used to be completely against alcohol...

    ...then I actually tried it. I haven't thrown up from alcohol because I don't like getting blind drunk, just enough to brush away that nasty ego of mine. :p

    Physically, I don't handle overindulgence well which is the reason why I could easily do without alcohol. I never drink for the effect. If I do drink, two is my limit. I only drink if I am socializing. I like a good glass of red if I am having a nice steak. I like going out for cocktails to cute, little places but that is more about the destination than the drinking. And I like having half a beer if I am watching a band.

    Basically, I don't ever like to feel unwell and that is how drinking regularly would make me feel.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I'm getting bored of it... I'm turning 18 soon and I started when I was 16. I drink maybe once a month. It was fun the first like ten times but it isn't really much fun any more. It isn't boring and I still do it, it just isn't nearly as fun as when it was still a novelty. I don't really act or think much differently and I just feel slightly duller. Maybe just a little less inhibited, but I'm already fairly uninhibited, so its hard to tell the difference.
