    To try and establish that the person is not an all-round loser
    I am not a loser. maybe not that lucky as other people around me but not a loser.

    It´s great to relax... but obviously, not too frequently (then it will be sad).

    Fine as long as you're not doing it too often and drinking several bottles. I prefer drinking alone and find it's a nice way to relax. I don't get why it sets off alarm bells in some people's heads because not everyone does it will become an alcoholic. My flatmate is convinced it's bad and that I'm gonna end up with a problem.

    That's what I said but she's still convinced that it means there's a problem. I don't get it.

    So.....pints, then? :lolwut:

    Similarly, I'll drink by myself when getting ready to go out.

    Or if I'm having a "**** the world and everyone I know" sort of day. Which is surprisingly rare.
    Well it was a plastic cup I managed to find from the kitchen, only oe that was bigger than a mug, when I think pint I think an actual pub glass :P

    Depends how it's done. A beer whilst the footy is on/ Glass of wine after a hard days work - fine

    Bottle of Jack in you're bedroom with some emo **** playing in the background - not cool.
    I literally spat at my laptop screen from a sudden burst of laughter at this

    Personally i have got fairly drunk alone on a few occasions, but only due to relationship complications. I.e. we broke up/on a break or i didnt know what was happening.
    Not something id do when im happy though, a couple of beers maybe, but not drunk drunk

    Why do people think you have to have company to drink alcohol?

    Why should company dictate any behaviour?

    If anything, having company is a prerequisite for peer pressure, so if you drink alone, you are doing it because you enjoy it and nothing else.

    People who say "I only drink with friends" are probably more ****ed up than alcoholics - you need someone to hold your hand whilst justifying your choice to drink alcohol?

    What is TSR's opinion on drinking alone?
    I'm doing it right now, or at least seeing his thread reminded me I bought a beer last night after work and am going to drink it after yet another horrible shift at work...thanks

    But I remember I used to drink alone before a night out, none of my freinds drank (carry outs at least), so I would always start drinking about 7ish, then get a taxi with them to the club, that was years ago though.

    EDIT: Took the wrong ****ing bottle, looks like I'm drinking Ginger Beer to night

    I respect solitary drinkers more than people who only drink in company, and use it as an excuse for drinking.
    No, you're not a social drinker, you're a ****er. You drink to get drunk. ****.

    I do it occasionally. But not often. I don't see anything wrong with a couple of glasses of cider on your own.
    Even have drank too much a couple of times but it's not something to do on a regular basis. I don't see anything wrong with it tbh. As long as you know the limit

    What actually constitues an alcohol problem, as long as someone is enjoying themselves and not harming others, leave them be. Drinking alone doesn't constitute a problem unless the person is drinking when they get up in the morning then continuing all day; ending up bolloxed.
