How often do you drink?

I am assuming 90%+ members here are of age to drink alcohol. 

So, how often do you drink? I am a semi-casual drinker. I probably drink a handful of times a month. Never been a daily drinker. I have a friend who is but he is to the point where he hardly even gets buzzed from it anymore.

How many drunk moments you had? LOL I feel like long time drinkers have the best stories on this planet. You have had to see some stuff in your day.

The problem with telling old drunk stories is that the real stories tend not to be that humorous and the authors only illustrate what a$$holes human beings can really be. Either that or they turn into preachy lectures about the evils of drink or some 12 step program cleansing epiphany about a miracle from above. But.........................

I worked in a shop for a young guy that was much like myself at the time. We were both high functioning, non violent drunks, but we managed to keep things rolling and still managed to kill 2-3 cases of beer during the work day, 6 days a week. The funny thing about this is the shop was located 1 building down from the local police station and we handled all of their equipment repair and most of the cops personal stuff. 

One of my duties was to make the daily store runs and drive my boss home every night unless he passed out on my bench for the night. At the time I had Chevy Cavalier Wagon with an electrical problem. Every now and then, the thing would completely die, all of the electrics would quit and then it would restart after waiting for 5 minutes. Since the boss only lived around the corner, I could drive him home and take side streets and alleys to get to my house. His license was revoked and somehow I have never had a driving offense.

One night, on the way home, I had a left hand turn on the 5 lane road and the Cavalier decided to its thing. I knew I wasnt going to make it to the side street and tried to get back into the turning lane. I didnt make it and wound up straight ahead in the opposite traffic lane. Traffic was light but there was one car heading directly at us. We didnt have time to get out and took a direct hit, head on, at 45mph. Of coarse we had open beers and of coarse none of us was hurt. The other driver was in the same boat as us. Drunk and driving a brand new lease car. Since none of us were about to make a report, we managed to get both cars back to the shop, located not more than a hundred feet away. We all went back into the shop to calm down and decide what to do. When we came out, the Cavalier was billowing smoke and the back seat was in flames. Seems like we lost track of where our lit cigarettes got tossed. The firestation was located across the street and a block down but we put it out ourselves.

I quit drinking a couple of years later and not just because of that story. Mods can feel free to sh!tcan this post and I wont feel slighted in the least. It's pretty mild compared to some of my other tales of drunkedness but when questions get asked, I tend to answer. 🙂

Well, this is OT and as long as you don't mind putting it out there, I (personally) don't see a need to remove it.  .......unless someone decides to get too preachy and things get heated.  ;)

Every couple of months I buy a bottle of Bailey's and once that's open, it's usually empty within a couple of hours. But that only happens a few times a year, and then I go for months without any booze. No beer, no wine, no nothing.

I barely drink nowadays. Only time you'll see my with a bev in my hand is if it's a special occasion. 

It may surprise you, but I've cut back myself as well.

It's probably why shares of Diageo are down for the FY.

I’m a very mild drinker. Nothing wrong with it in moderation, IMO. My buddies tend to make fun of me because I hate beer and instead reach for a Mike’s Hard Lemonade or a Smirnoff (which they call b!tch beer), or I’ll drink a Jack and Dr. Pepper. My brother recently introduced me to honey whiskey straight, on the rocks. That’s pretty delicious. All in all, I probably have a couple drinks once or twice a month.
