    I drink maybe a couple times a month and when I do it is never more than 3-4 glasses a night. I think buying alcohol is a waste of money which is why I don't do it often and I've only been drunk once or twice.

    I don't like it and I'm scared of both losing control and throwing up, so hell no!

    My average is couple of glasses of wine a week. I drink it for dinner or lunch. Nowadays, I can allow myself more expensive wine, so I've taught myself a word or two about Spanish, Italian and French wines and how to pair them with food.

    Sometimes, when I go out with friends to a pub I'll enjoy one or two pints of stout. The chocolate stout is my favorite, but I also like the dry/Irish and the Imperial stout. In more fancy bars I really enjoy a decent Bloody Mary or some fancier cocktail.

    At some point in my past, I had a whole collection of French and Armenian brandies. I still have couple of bottles left. Nowadays, I drink brandy only on special occasions.

    Despite my love for alcoholic drinks, I avoid getting drunk at all costs, because of my severe anxiety issues and because I had some drinking problems when I was a teenager. I get absolutely the most awful hangovers afterwards, and I can do some pretty horrible things to myself and to others when I'm drunk.

    I don't really drink. My tolerance for alcohol is very low. A bottle of bear is like my max point. Hahah. I am usually the designated driver when I go out with my friends. I sometimes wish I could drink more, but my body just can't handle it. I usually just drink half a beer and that's it. One shot of vodka and I'm done for the night. Any more then I need to go to the bathroom and puke it out hahhaa.

    Can't not to agree with you, even if this topic isn't new! :icon_bigg I'm the same, a very calm person in case of alcohol in fact, I drink it several times a month too and sometimes I don't do this for a much longer time :slight_smile: And when I drink, it's always not a great amount of alcohol in general, I don't like the feeling of being too drunk...:eusa_doh:
    My favourite drinks in such case are champagne, good wine, some cocktails and scotch :slight_smile:I think that in some cases I like scotch the most of all, here's btw an interesting article about it on stylemann.com :slight_smile:

    I don't, but for any particular principles, just don't like the taste! People have suggested vodka and then some kind of fruit juice, but i don't see the point of drinking just for the sake of drinking or getting drunk. I'd rather drink something I actually liked as a social thing.

    I'm a fairly heavy drinker. Since the original question was about weight gain, I'd say 80% of the weight I've gained in the last year or so (which is not a huge amount, but enough that I've noticed it,) has been from drinking more. It happens to be something I enjoy, so I wouldn't stop doing it, but I'm definitely more conscious since noticing that, of the effect it's having on my body.

    yup, but only cider and spirits on special occasions. Everyone I know except my dad drinks regularly and I guess the only reason I haven't fallen to the same habit is cos I can't stand beer :/ Favourite drink, without a doubt is Canterbury Cream, which is similar to Baileys. Really expensive tho, so mostly it's just apple or pear ciders

    I'm actually confused by the first sentence: Even before it was highly popularized on Mad Men, Scotch was the atypical gentleman’s drink of choice

    Nope. I tasted it once, and it was disgusting (for me).
    Most people told me, you have to drink until you like it, but I don't like the idea of drinking something I don't like.

    So, I'm just a freak xD
    No, really: If I don't really taste the alcohol (like if it's in a cocktail), I drink it. But can you say I'm drinking alcohol? I have no idea...

    I don't drink, (yes, it's legal to drink at sixteen where I live) partly cause I don't see the point in it, especially at this age, and also cause I absolutely can't stand the taste of alcohol :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Very rarely now. I had a few drinks during the Christmas holiday, but nothing since.
