    cos he's been there, done that. fair enough. nowt to prove. but also, i knew a girl, who threw herself off a building into a pool, whilst absolutely trashed. that didnt go down so well, so she stopped.

    me...i stopped for almost a year, because i got so drunk, it was on camera, and i hated every second of watching it. it was so embarrassing, people were rather laughing at me. i was a completely different person and i didnt like what i saw

    I drink lightly, but I don't like getting wasted anymore.

    Hate hangovers, and I'm naturally reserved when it comes to what I'm actually thinking, and I tend to conceal a lot about my character, and over consumption of alcohol tends to obliterate this barrier.

    Do not like that.

    I basically still "don't drink", but I actually do a few times a year, and about 3 or 4 glasses of wine each time.

    Before this year I drank less than that, less than once per year.

    My reasons are that booze is a pretty horrible drug, and makes you feel unpleasant after it's worn off. It also conflicts with my interest in fitness and health issues. And finally, I didn't want to be under the influence of drugs when in situations where one might drink anyway. That last reason I don't worry about too much any more, because in fact I quite like my character after a few drinks.

    Religion but it's not exactly amazing for the health.

    And the feeling isn't amazing and isn't necessary for socialising.

    Neither: I just don't like the taste. Red wine, white wine, cider, beer, whiskey, cocktails, etc. etc. My taste buds hate them all!

    I went T total for 3 months after an epic binge that lost me a weekend of my life and almost lost my girlfriend. And now i'm having a few drinks on a night out rather than being utterly wasted.

    Religious reasons? Nah.

    Moral reasons? Nah.

    Practical reasons? Oh yes. Social drinking is ok (unless you're doing it every day), but regular drinking without which you can't have "fun" is not. Bad money management, paying for something that makes you do crazy things, vomit, feel sick and compromise your long term health.

    Were you suprised by how quickly your tolerance of alcohol diminishes after going t total for a while? I was off for 10 months, and went from drinking straight spirits, to being tipsy after a drink, lol

    I drunk occasionally... drank a whole bottle of Jagermeister (German spirit). I got drunk and drank the whole bottle basically. Then ruined the bathroom walls.

    Not really worth it, and i've quit.

    Oh and Wine tastes disgusting... and I hate people giving it to me.

    I hate the taste so just try to have two or three half ciders when I go out. Even that is more than I'd like to drink but there is so much pressure

    Hell yes! After first year of uni (i.e drinking heavily for weeks on end), i rather enjoyed shots of spirits and had done plenty of spirits only drinking games. Then i had a few bottles of bud 2 weeks ago and was just like **** me, i'm gone! Haha.

    I don't think i'd cope with straight shots of hard spirits at the moment.

    Mainly because I got bored of it and after a few weeks of not drinking I realised I didn't actually like getting drunk even though I did it every weekend. Plus its a huge waste of money. I can have a perfectly good time without drinking and I don't get a hangover the next day. I think binge drinking is very overrated and now I've grown up a bit I realise how stupid it is.

    I'm not tee total, I will occasionally have a drink with dinner but I don't drink to get drunk.

    I don't like the taste of it. I drink sometimes, 1 or 2 if I'm out but if I can get away with it I'll just have water. I liek the feeling of the first drink but the feeling the next day is part of the reason for not drinking. After 2 drinks for me anyway, I feel awful. Some of my friends just don't see the need to drink, it's expensive and they have a good time without it.

    I'm very self-reliant so I don't like the feeling of not being under control and at someone else's mercy really and the idea of being absolutely hammered isn't appealing. I just think drinking is best within limits.
