How about those of us who drink because we want to?

As far as I'm concerned, I'm an adult, I don't drink and drive, I don't bother anyone else when I'm drinking, and oh, not to forget, it's my body and what I choose to put in it is my choice, not anyone elses.

Sociability (71%)
Like the taste (51%)
Feel at ease (12%)
Get intoxicated (6%)
Get drunk (2%)
Because everybody does it (6%)
To forget problems (24%)
Alcohol gets risky when you need more to feel good. If you can't do that anymore on your own, and you use the alcohol for it, at a certain point you run the risk of starting to drink more and more each time to still feel the effects. This can be the beginning of an addiction. If you drink to feel good, you should ask yourself if you can also feel at ease without alcohol.


I've done it for all but two of the reasons above. "Because everybody does it" and "To forget problems". You shouldn't be pressured into something to do it, you should wait until you want to experience it yourself, and it's a personal philosophy of mine to deal with problems rather than forgetting them...it only makes the problem bigger.

Everyone has their limits to how much they can drink...personally my limits are higher than average, but thats a mixture of things, body type and size, genetic makeup, experience and frequency.

Well, I will drink occasionally at events when I hang out with my friends, but I will not exceed a few drinks because I stop once I start feeling slightly lightheaded.

I've thrown my restraint out the window and went "what the heck" and gotten madly drunk twice, and both those times were to forget about current problems, relieve stress, and to feel drunk (intertwined). I didn't get alcohol poisoning, although I did black out for a little while and get hung over the first time. The second time, I did do something I regret, but since neither of us can hardly remember it, it is starting to bother me less and less. Overall, it is actually an effective stress reliever TEMPORARILY. I know I can't just drink to solve my problems and escape.

I really do try not to get drunk, since I am aware it is very unhealthy, but sometimes there is just so much frustration and stress that I just stop caring and start drinking. I've had alcohol dozens of times, but I've only gotten drunk twice. I'm still stupid for doing so though.

I only drink in social situations... I hate the taste of just about any alcohol, the only kinds I can stand is straight up shots from tequila, whisky, because they go down fast. Or mikes hard lemonade, or smirnoff.

I only do it at like my friends family party, hes part of a huge extended family and sometimes we go down to a beach house and play board games. There's a lot of friends of family like me there, and it's so much fun seeing the entire family be completely smashed while trying to play games. I think it's okay as long as it's in moderation. In this case we only do it like once a year or less.

Yeah if you go somewhere with the goal of knocking up a chick to get laid, your a sad fu**** who should be sterilized... The nice thing however is it's perfectly fine if the chick knocks herself up by drinking to much or doing ecstasy on purpose... Some chicks just want to let out their inner promiscuous side.


there you have it aids...............................

Lol when it's a stranger yes. However the girls spreading aids usually don't need intoxication to find somebody, as they are naturally promiscuous. Usually if someone intoxicates themselves purposefully for a fun time, they are probably shy regularly, or more reserved/non kinky outside of the party world.

At first, I did it to see what it tasted like and to see what it was like to get drunk.

But it's good in my tea every now and again

i've never had alcohol. NONE!
but its weird because I kind of want to learn how to brew beer and distill wine and stuff, despite never having any in my life...it just seems like an interesting process to me.

I drink because a gun gets put to my head.

Because a lot of us have issues and we don't want to talk to some overpaid idiot sitting in a leather chair with a notepad and pretending to give a shit about our problems. Plus it's a great way to make friends that we can beat up later lol.

You drink for social reasons (as you would with soda, milk, water, etc), not just for the fuck of it to get wasted. If the latter is you, then you are a pathetic son of a bitch.

I drink rarely, but only a hard lemonade or some other type of drink with fruit in it. I never had wine before, tequlia and whiskey is avioded, and I never liked beer. I only drink maybe one or two glasses/shots/what have you.

Less is more, in my case.
