    I have never been drunk in my life. Sorry.
    I think it has nothing to do with type.

    i don't mean to introduce a positive correlational hypothesis. i'm seeking experience/input from other infj that have ever struggled with alcoholism. i drink very reasonably and rarely - life is short enough already. i don't intend to disrepect it by "living" in a constantly inebriated state.

    My upbringing was conservative Christian and even though I don't believe there is a Biblical basis for teetotalism, it's too ingrained at this point for me to feel comfortable with using alcohol. Plus knowledge of my family history inclines me not to risk it and most of what I've been exposed to smells nasty, plus a lot of people act stupid when they drink and God knows I can do that just fine on my own, plus alcohol is expensive.

    IOW, I dunno because I'm a cheap chicken. :chicken:
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Personally, zero relationship with alcohol. I have other lovely addictions to be friends with.

    Gin tastes neat, but I consume it in controlled, limited quantities, and never as a means of escape.

    INFJs with their god awful Se already seem drunk, so they don't need the help.

    if it is dependent upon type, in my observation INFJ's are not likely to be. I know several that have no dependencies smoking/drinking (unless its soda).

    Potentially, yes. It's the inferior Se and it's tendancy to over do physical stimulus. It's not the only way inferior Se can show up of course.

    The INFJ I know has never been drunk and neither have I.
