    Don't drink because then i would need to interact with the person selling it... and i have a strong dislike for people in general.

    Occasionally and usually just to take the edge off. I've not been drunk for years.

    I do occasionally, but mostly with my boyfriend. I've only ever had white wine spritzers. They're my go-to.

    I am under 18, but honestly, I would never drink alcohol. Not only do know the health risks, I hate the taste and the smell even more. I have only tried prosecco but I absolutely hated it.

    If I ever did drink, though, it would be controlled - I would not binge drink. That is the worst for you. Loads of my friends have got really drunk and thrown up and stuff. So no I don't drink, and I don't think I ever will

    No & never will. Full of oestrogen and makes you fat and degenerate.

    Yes. Same reason why people eat junk food. It tastes good.

    Nope.

    Too expensive (I'm trying to save up for a house deposit for the future & possibly buy a car) and I don't see what's so appealing about it.

    I'm not religious at all, so I'm not abstaining because I fear some god is going to smite me down for drinking something that's naturally brewed from sugar and yeast.

    Before I would've said No coz of religious reasons but now.....I might try it once sometime in the future just to quench my thirst for curiosity.

    Used to get pissed every weekend and fit in a couple of beers on most days of the week round my mate's house. More or less stopped drinking now, haven't had a drink since 2015 but I'm not adverse to a very occasional drink still.

    I've never found that it brings me joy so a few years ago I decided to cut it out. Other people can drink and I do not judge them but it's not for me.

    I drink before going to a social event, it calms me and makes me more social towards others
