I don't drink at all. There's an alcoholic family history on both sides of my family that has caused a lot of damage. For me it's just a personal choice not to partake.
I'm a professional therapist. If I deem our forum interaction to be professional in nature then I will bill you. Prompt payment is expected.

I drink occasionally, maybe once or twice every two or three months. Generally, it's just us young adults doing our "partying" thing.

I only drink occasionally. A glass of wine or two bottles of beer at most.

The test doesn't work anymore but yeah personally I think I drink a lot and would likely drink more if I could afford it

I drink extremely infrequently, and then in small quantities.

The very occasional glass of good wine, or a tot of single malt scotch.

I drink for taste, not for effect.

More than I should. I've been known to drink a whole bottle of wine.

No, I don't drink. I do peyote. I plan on doing some peyote later.

Being in college in Wisconsin, it's hard NOT to drink. At school I drink quite a bit on the weekends (too busy during the weekdays usually, unlike my roommates haha), but when I'm home for the summer I rarely ever drink. Nice to take a break from it!

Not often. It's fun to get drunk when I do drink, but I don't have the desire to drink alcohol much.

5th of Captain Morgan, and maybe a bottle of wine a day (wine usually starts in the evening). I start in the morning as it helps me focus and get great work done. I've knocked out a ton of projects that my clients love while just on the edge of buzzed. Love working from home. I'm not an alcoholic. I'm a professional of Irish and German descent who grew up in certain midwest state known for beer. My Irish grandfather drank twice what I do on a daily basis for over 50 years, and lived to 102. Gods I miss that man.

I'm nearing my 30's and I only started a year ago. Was always scared about drinking due to a bad experience I had with it when I was 15, but my career went crazy and I got to travel around the world giving interviews and demoing my work, and everyone around me would be drinking something.

Maybe because of being a late bloomer I have a different experience to its effects. I find it very good at getting me to focus on something I normally wouldn't like (people I don't connect with, boring films etc), it makes me wake up extremely positive and I only need a couple of hours sleep if I've been drinking, it makes me work really fast. Never had a hangover.

It's not much though: I'll have 3-5 small whisky shots in a session, or a couple of glasses of wine. Once every 2 weeks.
Maybe if everyone who'd ever been close to you had died, you'd be sarcastic, too.

I try to keep it to one night a week, Friday or Saturday. I never drink Monday through Thursday (cannot stand working hungover). I try to keep it to one night a weekend, but back to back nights have been known to happen. Typical night would be 4-6 beers, 3-4 mixed drinks, 1-2 shots...something along those lines, sometimes less sometimes more. I'm from WI as well and drinking is pretty deeply engrained in the culture here.

Most nights; 4 or so cans or maybe a bottle of wine.

Don't go out anywhere near as often as I used to (family life thankfully) and I'm not pub fit but do enjoy the very occasional big blow out, normally around a big sporting event - cant beat a rugby international for all day drinking
