Can't stand alcohol. Haven't enjoyed watching my uncle slowly die from alcohol poisoning over the past decade. Also worked in a bar/restaurant for a few months over night and honestly the amount of absolutely disgusting, completely piss drunk people that would come in after the other pubs shut to make my job fucking impossibly difficult sickened me. Parties I've attended have always been horrible after the first hour because people seem to assume they're hardly different drunk but in actual fact they're just 10x more inconsiderate, loud and annoying.

They taste fucking disgusting too, drinking paint thinner is probably just as enjoyable as most drinks. Fuck alcohol.

Alcohol really doesn't pique my interest. Apparently my family has had some alcoholics (2nd cousins and the like), but I never knew them. I just kind of like being lucid and fully aware of what I'm doing. Could be some weird phony achievement thing, though.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

I am not particularly fond of drinking. I only drink on occasions, and when I do it's beer (usually Guinness). I do not go for anything more than a buzz.


I don't like anything that inhibits my brain, because then I feel like I can't absorb information. So on the weekends that I'm alone and I'm trying to learn programming or watch some story heavy shows, I prefer to be sober. But that's because I like learning. If I'm with a group and I know all I'm going to do is act like an idiot all night then I don't mind a couple drinks, but a lot of the time I prefer being sober.

I never get trashed only buzzed, I think feeling full on drunk is disgusting. At least in my opinion beer should really only be for relaxing, not pushing your body/mind to a state where you are incapable of speech.

Spoiler

But when I am drunk, I am a god programmer (or atleast I think I am)

I love mixing wine w/ coke or pepsi, I wasn't sober from December 19th till like 4th January #goodtimez. Beer is okay but it tastes like piss. Nowadays I just drink coffee maybe too much?

Well, a common misconception of drinking is that you need to do it heavily in order to enjoy it. Usually when people drink alcohol they need to reach a point on when they feel comfortable, learning to reach that point is crucial when enjoying alcohol or weed or anything. If you feel like you're gonna lose control at any minute then stop, drinking water and eating greasy food helps. When i drink i usually have the right amount of drink and stuff and i don't let other people prepare my drinks and stuff and im just fine with it.

This. My friends love to get hammered, and they say it is the only way to enjoy alcohol. Personally a few beers is good enough, paced out throughout the night. I'm sober, but comfortable enough to enjoy the festivities the night will bring. Pacing is important to enjoying yourself. Unless you really wanna get hammered that is.

I can be a real alcoholic at times.  I'm not one much for beer, I'm more of a rum and whiskey kinda guy, usually rum because most of the time it's cheaper.  Mostly I drink Blackheart, it's a cheap but tasty high-proof rum.  Black Patch is also good, cheap and tasty.  Also Captain Morgan tastes really amazing, but will leave an awful after-taste in your mouth the next morning.

I drink way too much for my age though.  I usually start drinking at about 10pm or later, just watching anime and movies, and will last till at least 1 or 2 o'clock or so, sometimes later.  I drink for a variety of depressing reasons that I won't go into now, but mainly I have a difficult time sleeping.  But when you find yourself going back to the liquor store time and again not to buy stuff to feel good, but just in a desperate attempt to get some sleep, that's a red flag.  I've been off the bottle for a week or so now, and I have the will power to stay away from it, I've done it before, but I still can't get any good sleep.  I know I'll be a hardcore alcoholic when I get older, and I'm okay with that, but I just want to be healthy until I get to a point in my life where I don't care about my health anymore.  I don't want to be the youngest guy in the world to get cirrhosis of the liver.

I realize that I should find ways to drink less, or rather slower each night.  I think one of my problems is that I drink alot during the day, water and tea mostly, I just like having something close by to constantly drink from, I'm a sipper not a guzzler, but when drinking alcohol at night that works against me.  I'll have a glass of 93 proof rum sitting right in front of me while watching anime and my sipping habit means that I drink too much too fast.  I suppose drinking beer instead would help, and playing games while drinking would help too because it would distract me and preoccupy my hands; but I don't really play games now, I just need a gaming machine, all I have now is this crappy laptop.

As of late I've been getting drunk every weekend, I probably shouldn't make it into a habit, but I can't fucking stand the winters here.
I would prefer weed but it often gives me anxiety and it gave me HPPD (I have visual snow and occular migranes, amongst other things).
My rule is simple, weekdays are sober days no matter what (unless there's a festival that starts on a thursday).

Been enjoying "The Crisp" by the Sixpoint Brewery lately, a very tasty American lager.

Horrible taste, but I gulped it down.

It's a custom to have a beer whenever you go out in my culture.

I used to be an alcoholic, drinking bourbon/whiskey/scotch from the bottle nearly every day. One time i was drunk and poured bourbon into my noodles.

For me, drinking is best done with the family. Now that my siblings and I are all grown up, pretty much every family get-together involves some drinking either at home or out on the town. We usually just get a few bottles of wine to share, as my brother is a total wine snob from working in the restaurant business so he has really good taste. I don't know that much about wine myself, but I trust his judgement as I haven't found anything he's selected which I didn't like. Since we live in Wisconsin, we also have some excellent local beers, I particularly like the New Glarus and Leinenkugel's brands as they have a wide selection of flavors for different seasons. (Summer Shandy is amazing!~) Some restaurants even brew their own beer in house, which is really cool as it's not something you'll easily find elsewhere in the US.

I don't really go out drinking with friends anymore for a few reasons. (lol... friends?) It's really expensive, they will try to peer pressure you into stupid bullshit, and a lot of them don't really know their own body's limits. It's not always about just trying to get as smashed as possible and boning the first person who consents... It's about you having fun. And if you aren't having fun drinking, then you should probably stop before you make the night worse.

Other than my brother's wine picks and the Wisconsin beer, I don't really venture too far into the drinking menu. I'll occasionally buy some Whiskey (my favorites are Jameson and Wild Turkey) for doing shots or mixing with soda at home, but I always feel really awkward and guilty about it. Hell, I'm drinking alone right now as I type this post. I usually just end up watching a light-hearted anime or play a casual low-effort video game on drinking nights like this.

OFF-TOPIC: So I read in a news article earlier this year that apparently having some alcohol in your blood before your smoke weed will increase the amount of THC you absorb. In other words, you take in more THC while smoking less. I've been experimenting with this over the summer and I find that my bag of weed lasts way longer if I just take about 1-3 shots (varying on strength of the beverage) before smoking one bowl. It feels amazing, but I really wouldn't recommend it if you plan on doing anything mentally demanding. (hence the anime/gaming as I mentioned above)

I drink failry often--just one beer a day while winding down after work. I <3 beer!!!  So it's under control--I never binge.  Now, for all of you who think beer = Miller, Budweiser, HEineken, Coors.... I feel bad for you.  Craft beer is real beer!  Drinking the previously mentioned crap can cause me to projectile vomit :c it's BAD!  

GREAT BEERS:

Brand                   Type
Dogfishhead        Midas Touch
Dogfishhead        Burton Baton
Schofferhofer      Grapefruit
Bew Dog             Punk IPA
Unibroue             Don de Dieu
Unibroue             La Fin Du Monde



These are my TOP TIER favorite beers!  There are others like Chimay, that taste exquisite, but will cause rotten hangovers. The ones I have listed won't forcibly remind you that you were drinking the night before.

As far as that "tastes like paint thinner/poison" when drinking alcohol.... It sounds like you were drinking some cheap stuff. All liquor is NOT created equally.  The increase in price is for an increase in quality. You're not just buying a name brand, like with clothing. I could write an entire article on buying good wine and spirits, but that's for another time.  EZ TIP: Don't go cheap on alcohol.

Drunk stories?
I got really drunk at a party with my best friend, told her that her mom was hot, she attacked me, I somehow kicked her in the face, and we are still best friends.

Honestly, I do not really feel too comfortable talking about alcohol. I am not overly fond of it even though I do drink to excess from time to time.

So yeah, sometimes i like to get smashed tbh but most of the time im just a beer guy. Most local brews are pretty much piss-like except for something like Kuntsmann, chilean Miller (cause the imported sucks), argentinian Quilmes and peruvian Cusqueña which are awesome. Also, we jumped really late into cold-brewing with light beers appearing into the mainstream as late as past year. Other than that, Corona is getting pretty popular by aiming to the local folk who are tired of shitty beer... giving them an even shittier beer.
On more harder booze, my go-to is vodka mixers, whiskey w/soda or Jaegermeister. Jaegermeister is fucking delicious.

I never drank alcohol until I turned 18 really, since I mostly just stayed at home. However once I got into university and my social circle started to grow, I found myself attending parties and events and alcohol is a common thing and I started getting into it. The amount of alcohol I drank went up with each event since the buzz it gave me was really good, especially since those weren't my brightest times, until I had a bad experience and do not recall anything that happened, thank god for my friends. Since then I just can't stand strong spirits, my body rejects them and just the smell makes me feel like throwing up. However I do enjoy having a couple beers with some friends after a long day of classes at a park near us.

Once I fell asleep on the floor of a nightclub toilet with my trousers and underwear by my ankles, woke up due to a guard unlocking the door from the outside, opening the door to the stall first seeing my junk and then my face going "Oh for fuck's sake...", closing the door and then shouting through the door: "Get dressed and come out, it's time for you to go home". Why I had my trousers and underwear by my ankles? I was taking a shit and suddenly had a desperate urge to throw up, and then I passed out.

Overall it was a good night, brushed myself off and met with my friends at a burger joint before going home. If I remember correctly I wasn't particularly hungover the following day.

I was at my friend's birthday, the dude made a huge BBQ for everyone so everyone handed out cash for liquor. Ended up being around 500 bucks.

I got smashed as fuck and i had group sex with some visual kei freaks whom i never met again, except for one girl who told me at a party "we boned once".

I had some really good double brewed IPA the other day made by ska brewing company called decadent, 10 percent alcohol and delicious.
