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 >_>.

I still do both. Hardly ever do I drink though. I smoke WAY too much for a Medical student though...
