This is a thread about whether you drink any type of alcoholic beverage (like beer, Vodka, Whiskey, etc.)?

I was just curious as to what percentage of CAG members drink. I thought there weren't many people who drank here, but the number of people seem to be higher than what I imagined, so I decided to start a thread about this.

For me, I'm a non-drinker (although I'm 24 years old). I had a sip of beer several years ago, and I thought it didn't taste too good, so I never wanted to have a beer again. I don't drink any other alcoholic beverage since I feel its best for me to not become an alcoholic, and I was abused a little as a kid because my Dad had too much to drink at times. I also don't understand why people feel the need to get drunk, to have any fun (I just play video games to have fun). I'm also not very comfortable around alcohol, because if I see it (like when I went to a DDR party), I left really quick.

Oh well, I'm kind of curious to see what CAG members stance is, on whether to do it (how often), or a non drinker like me. :)

EDIT: To let everyone know, I am away at college, where drinking occurs a lot. I honestly feel my parents wouldn't approve of me drinking, so that's a small reason why I don't bother.

Who needs drinking when you have a PSP and a PS3?


Hell, I've heard that Sony products can stop alcoholism!

I don't drink nor do I like to drink ever. But after watching beerfest last night I got all beer crazy and had the urge to drink a cold beer. >_> Imported of course, none of that american shit.

"I drink at least once every week or two"



i drink a few times a week..i think im an alcoholic. the euphoria i am under when i have the right drunkness down is amazing to me...but also dangerous. I hate the idea of drinking alone though. I took a few shots of tequila by myself thursday, felt pretty depressing :rofl:

OP, it's cool that you don't drink but you shouldn't be afraid to be around it. You're missing out on a lot of great stuff socially.

I guess I'm a drinker but I haven't had a drop since New Year's since my wife was pregnant and we don't go out much anymore. I do love beer though.

I only drink mixed drinks (White Russian, Irish Bulldog, Zombie, etc.).

Even then, I drink very rarely.

For whatever reason, I just don't drink (I'm 24)... I've had a number of sips over the course of my life, but never had a full drink. All of my friends drink, and it doesn't bother me, I just have no interest.

Whisky straight every couple of weeks normally. But I haven't drank since I think mid-April.

personally if you haven't tried it, don't knock it. people don't NEED to get drunk to enjoy anything, its the effects of alcohol which leaves many inhibition-less that makes certain activities a different experience. I don't have a problem with people that don't drink because they don't like the feeling of being buzzed or drunk. But I don't understand how you can make that judgment without experiencing the feeling yourself. just my 2 cents.

That may just be the saddest sentence I've ever heard for so many reasons.



And I drink wine almost nightly with dinner, and occasionally a beer or two.

I wonder how long until this devolves into a bitchy flame fest about the evils of alcohol.

And to answer your question OP, I drink on Friday and Saturday night. Usually Milwaukee's Best Light or Canadian Club but it gets changed up every now and then. I'll be getting Miller Chill this weekend.

I drink about once a week, only on the weekends, and when I'm not on call. Probably closer to every other weekend.

I don't drink beer, only wine and hard liquor.

I did abstain from drinking until I turned 21 while at college, as my RA job could be compromised by underage drinking.

Word.

Also Mana Knight, like someone posted above, most people don't NEED it to have a good time. Alcohol just tastes good (mixed drinks that is).

Thats like the three shittiest beers you can drink (you're only missing Steel Reserve).

I drink every other day (usually Harp or Leinenkugal Honey Weiss for beer or Rum & Coke or Screw Drivers for mixed). Beyond pot, drinking is the best way to unwind after a day.

Imported of course, none of that american shit.


Since you don't drink, you shouldn't make blanket statements like that. There is some damn fine American beers and there is some serious piss being imported.

Canadian Club is whisky (unless you meant to say MWBL is one of the three shittiest beers I could drink).

And I cant disagree with you about Beast. Its not great but its cheap. Also, you're talking to a guy that used to drink Camo and Lazer 40s so I'm sure I wouldnt mind drinking Steel Reserve either. :lol:

I share many of the same views already mentioned. I drink very rarely and I really don't need it to have a good time. But you'd be damned to get the same response from a sampling of people at my college.

That may just be the saddest sentence I've ever heard for so many reasons.

This is what I mean, seeing people get drunk, doing stupid stuff, the smell of it on their breath, kind of bothers me a little, that's what I meant. I don't hang around friends much anyway, so I usually don't deal with it.

I forget what type of beer I had a tiny sip of when I was young, but I'm guessing Bud. I still remember the taste now and it wasn't too good.

I share many of the same views already mentioned. I drink very rarely and I really don't need it to have a good time. But you'd be damned to get the same response from a sampling of people at my college.

I could say the same somewhat at my college, but my college isn't one of the biggest party schools (I go to Purdue University main campus). When walking around on, I see way too many red party cups and beer bottles. I got angry once because a beer bottle popped my bike tire, so I couldn't get around my campus quickly for a few weeks. :( A lot of college students do drink, because when I look at many of my friends pics on Facebook (btw, I am in the CAG Facebook group), almost all of them have the red party cups in the background.

You need to find friends that make you feel comfortable. Why waste time and energy on people that don't make you happy? If their drinking really bothers you that much, you need different friends you can relate to and feel comfortable with. Socializing is a huge part of growing as an individual with or without alcohol consumption.

If you are still worried about what your parents think of you at 24 you are in for one long, boring and event-free life.

I don't drink. I had a legal drink once when I was in Guam (18 is the legal age there) and I couldn't stand the taste of alcohol and I got tipsy after having only one heavily dumbed-down mixed drink. I just don't see the point and I don't like the way it feels. I think it's so stupid how most college kids waste time and money on the stuff, and end up acting retarded and having a much lower GPA in the process. I like parties, though I haven't really gone to many in my college career, but I just don't see the point in drinking.

Yeah, that was a bad typo on my part. The three beers that I can't touch any more is Beast (grew up drinking it, you couldn't beat 3.99 for a 12 pack), Ice House (like Beast, I get the nastiest shits from it) and then Steel Reserve (frankly this is the worst to me though I use to make some money on people betting me that I couldn't do a beer bong of it). HAHA!!! I've always been lucky where I've never had the chance to drink that. Just like Mad Dog, I've never had that and I never will......no if only I could say the same about Apple Puckers (which made me projectile vomit 6 feet and the worst part was I had just ate Jay's Hot Stuff BBQ chips which made it a horrible dark red color)
