Soon to be 35, and I rarely drink. I may have what averages to 1 drink per month, and I haven't been drunk in probably 10 years (since my wedding night, I think). I do, however, smoke pot on a regular (read daily) basis, so it's really one vice for another. I'm an athlete, so in my case pot is the better choice because I can still easily train the next day if I get high, whereas a hangover means no working out.

I had two beers on NYE, and it was the first time that I had any alcohol in a couple of years. I tend to feel like total shit if I get drunk in my later years, so it's a good deterrent. I'm also a type 2 diabetic, so drinking really is a no-no for me and is probably a factor to why I feel so terrible afterwards.

I am as well. I haven't noticed any difference in how much I drink.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

That's where I'm at - daily toker myself. I'm not an athlete but I can go to the gym just fine after smoking (I often go and do my cardio while the high is kicking in). Alcohol makes me dread going to the gym even a full day later, plus I try not to eat after I start drinking because I feel like crap and it'll be so much worse on my body (read: storing fat) than just smoking a joint.

Yeah, totally. In fact while my wife refrained from alcohol for the two pregnancies, I did the same to show support.

I did for most of my wife's pregnancy as well.

Me three.

I've been drinking way more occasionally over the last couple of months, I rarely get drunk, but just like having drinks at concerts and parties and stuff. On new year's eve I drank way more than I feel comfortable with though and for the first time actually have almost no memory of the night. Having my friends puzzle everything together for me was fun but I've decided anyway that it was kind of an eye opener for me to cut down a bit. The hangovers are also the main reason I want to cut down on alcohol a bit, I'm super unproductive if I do get a hangover for probably the entire day or even longer.

I do, however, smoke pot on a regular (read daily) basis, so it's really one vice for another. I'm an athlete, so in my case pot is the better choice because I can still easily train the next day if I get high, whereas a hangover means no working out.
I don't do it daily, but probably once or twice a week. I used to do it more with friends though, whereas right now I found out that I find it way more enjoyable to do it by myself at home with some soothing music, I don't need much to get at a good level either so I don't think it'll affect me in a very negative way. The only times I do it outside anymore are at concerts that I think come across better when I'm high.

I'm one of those weird people who have limited, almost childish tastes with food, and that translates also with beverages

While in high school, most of my classmates were really good friends so we had birthday and other parties together and there was always so much alcohol :lol also, I moderately drank on weekends when I was out with friends. I guess I used to get hammered pretty often then :P. After I started going to the college, I really cut it down, only drinking with my concert mates and occasionally going to the bars with smaller group of people. Then I lost desire to drink and there were some medical problems where drinking alcohol started to literally hurt so I stopped. I think I had only glass of wine and some liqueur with my dad on Christmas in last 11 months or so. If this medical situation ever get better I think I'll drink beer occasionally (I really liked it) but I don't think I want to get drunk ever again.

Didn't touch the stuff until I turned 21. Absolutely hate beer. Discovered that vodka is my drink of choice, specifically Grey Goose. Started with Smirnoff, moved to Absolut and then bought my first bottle of Grey Goose in late 2016 and am almost spoiled to anything else. Smoothest vodka I ever had.

I also am partial to hard cider/lemonade and what my friends refer to as the 'girly' malt beverages, Smirnoff Ice and the like. I do whiskey as well.

I have always been a rare drinker. Every so often at bowling when I'm having a bad night and at NYE.
