Yeah, I spent a good portion of my twenties partying.

Bonus: I still drink and smoke weed every once in a while, maybe like once a week or so. But I quit smoking cigarettes nearly 6 years ago and haven't done any hard drugs in about 5.

Nope, I still drink although not all that much. I've cut back from almost daily to like once or twice a month in the past year.

I tried smoking a few times. Subsequently, I craved coffee each time. Coffee it is, then...

I generally drink a couple times a month, though I suppose that cooking with alcohol probably counts. In that case, it's pretty common for me to ingest alcohol in some form.

I was an alcoholic for two years after experiencing a breakdown. Now I have the self control to only have 1-2 drinks a couple times a year on special occasions (st. patrick's day, my birthday, new year's eve). Always hated cigarettes, so I never touched them. I smoke "the devil's lettuce" to treat my diagnosed anxiety disorder, as needed (ex: when I am unable to sleep for 48+hours at a time). It isn't an every day type of thing. The last time I smoked was early January.

28 drank since I was 13. I've tried smoking but never took to it.

Never smoked anything in my life. I did use to drink heavily and only hard liquor. Did a lot of partying in my 20s and then used it to cope with my depression when going through a bad breakup. I don't remember the details as to what changed me but one day I decided to take control of my life and quit. Been sober for 5 years.

I keep away from alcohol when I can and limit to one drink if I'm out on a social occasion. I never realize that enough is enough until I hit the floor.

When I got out of the Army due to a hip and back injury I started drinking and popping pill to cope. Normally Jack and Lortabs, I was in pain, I was depressed, and I felt like my life was over even though I was still young. Sure I was going to college, sure I had a job, but I was back in the same hick town I grew up in. Then one day a friend that worked at the local Sheriff's Office call me up and told me they had some openings. That was almost three years ago and I haven't popped pills and only drank at parties since then.

I don't smoke, never will. As for drinking, very rarely. Usually if there's something to celebrate or so, i might take a drink or two. That's my limit.

I've drank but I rarely drink.

I still smoke though. It's the one habit that's been hard to kick for me. I exercise regularly (Run about 3-4 miles every other day), eat extremely balanced meals that aren't fatty or processed, and I get the right amount of sleep every night but those cigarettes are the last vice I have >_>.

No is my answer, nor will I use either (what I consider) poisonous products. I am related to individuals who indulge on imbibing alcohol and smoke, and have actually shunned me for not being interested in any of the two for unexplained reasons beyond that. There were moments I was curious of trying Champagne for food recipes or meals, but I hesitate to.

Being aware of the health risks, I at times question what is the appeal.

I've never tasted alcohol or tried smoking.

And I have no interest in trying either of them either.

Used to smoke and drink regularly in HS, despite mild allergies.
Became an adult and just didn't feel like doing either, so I haven't bothered in 7-8 years.
Haven't even been to a bar or club bc I didn't feel like getting drunk on a Friday night anymore.
