    Over the past few years I have noticed myself drinking less and less. It is now where I may have a drink with a meal once a month or so. I maybe hit the bar now once every 2-3 months and have 1 or 2 drinks.

    I used to drink a lot more. I just got to the point where having a couple cups of coffee sounded better then a few drinks. I guess I maybe to do with my families addictive personalities. I was always paranoid that I would start drinking more then socially.

    Is it bad that this is a hard question to answer? On average, once a week, 1 drink. But because it has been a school break and friends have been coming over more, we've been having a couple drinks with them so its been more these couple of weeks.

    I am 23, don't drink because I don't feel like it. I've seen people drunk and don't want that, either. All the alcohol I ever drank was on New Year's eve, but even that was just a bit, I hate the taste of champaigne. I think I can have enough fun without alcohol anyways.

    I have about one or two drinks almost every day. I very, very rarely have more than two drinks at a time.

    Not much anymore. I used to drink beers when watching the football (soccer :rolleyes: ) but now I only drink a couple of times a year - sometimes not at all. Not enough to get drunk, either.

    Once a week when I'm out with my girls.

    Usually, I'll have a dirty Martini or some Grand Marnier, neat. There are some days where I'll have a glass of Chianti, but that's only when I'm making a nice spaghetti dinner.

    Used to drink as much as I could as often as I could. Now, 1 or 2 bottles of beer on the weekend. But not every weekend.

    I drink a few beers a week. Mostly on Friday/Saturday. Sometimes if I am having a good meal I will have a glass of wine with it.

    Everyday, usually beer, or red wine with the occasional bottle of champagne.

    Little and often... I'll have a bottle of beer with tea a couple of nights during the week, and maybe a few more at the weekend depending on what we're up to – for example, if we're at the football we generally pop down the pub for a pint or two before the game. I drink bitter and the occasional lager but never touch spirits.

    One thing I certainly don't do mind is binge drink, and I'm pretty aware of what my limits are – it's been a long time since I've been drunk or owt.

    When I was at University I drank way, way too much to the extent I was getting very drunk every night. However, since then my consumption of alcohol has dramatically decreased to the extent that now (in my 40's) I don't really drink at all.
    I wouldn't call myself a teetotaler because I haven't made an active decision to stop drinking alcohol and I will have an occasional drink on a special occasion but more often than not I'd rather have a cold soda than a cold beer.

    Maybe once or twice a weekend depending on if i go out or not. From anywhere to 3-10 beers or 5-7 jack & cokes(depends on if im DD or not). But that only lasts until the summer then all bets are off and i could be drinking every night.

    :confused:

    I'm 17 and I drink once a week or so, depending on how many parties there are that weekend. At most, twice a week, at least once, every 2 weeks.

    The key is responsibility. I'm not getting trashed off 151 every week, I'm just having a couple beers with friends.
