  • Its fun enough, socially. I used to be against it but one here and there isnt bad ;P.
  • I realized it wasn't working anymore and I was happier with out drinking alcohol + up
  • Because every now and then it sounds good.
  • I drank some socially in college, but haven't usually had more than a drink or two per year, since. I'm not against social drinking at all. It just doesn't do anything for me. Now that I have a serious illness, alcohol would interfere with some of my meds. My doc lets me reduce some of the meds so I can have a drink on my birthday. I usually get a Margarita...those were my favorite. I do use wines in cooking, when it's in a dish where I can "burn off" the alcohol and still have it impart flavor. Thanks for the question. +6
  • I drink because I don't want my body to become dehydrated. And sometimes I'm thirsty also.
  • I dont drink because I like to be in contol of myself. I dont want to do stupid things or say hurtful things to people. I like to have a clear mind and make educated decisions and that cant happen if I am impaired by alcohol.
  • I drink occasionally with my friends... Don't really have a reason... We just do... It's fun...
  • I quit drinking (on a regular basis) 6 years ago because I was tired of the hangovers. Now I have a drink or two only on the holidays.
  • I don't drink..I was very ill with liver and kidney problems a few years ago..and I never want to be that sick or that close to death again...I have no desire to go back to the hospital..:)
  • I have never really liked the taste of alcohol, and I know the affects it could have on me. On special occassions I have drank wine, but only less than a half a glass full. I always believe that to much alcohol could be harmful to your body, and also could lead to trouble if not careful.
  • I enjoy drinking, but I don't drink to excess. I usually enjoy a glass of wine with my Dinner or a Highland Single Malt before it...
  • I quit drinking because of my daughter Abigail. She's sixteen months old now and it's been that long since I had anything...Having her made me change a lot of things about myself for the better!
  • I don't drink for three reasons: 1) I don't like the taste of alcohol. 2) I like to keep a clear head...well, clear enough. 3) For me, the trouble with actually getting my hands on alcohol is just too stressful for me to put up with. If I became addicted to it, I would probably lose my mind.
  • I don't drink at all because there are too many alcoholics in my family & I've seen what drinking does
  • I used to drink a lot. I don't anymore, because, it just chemically made me too depressed the next day. It finally kicked in that it wasn't worth it. I still drink, but, not so much that I feel like Hell the next day.
  • I enjoy having a beer at gatherings like holidays, birthdays, social events I like to go to bon fires and enjoy a beer or two with friends its still fun times for me.
  • I average 2 ales a night; enough to make me mellow but not enough to make me actually drunk. I am a naturally anxious person, prone to panic attacks, nervous tics, muscle spasms, and not alays able to concentrate. Anti-anxiety meds either don't work and/or have side-effects that are nastier than what they are trying to stop. Half a pint and my arm stops twitching, I don't jump at every sudden movement/noise, and I can actually stay focused on a task. Some may call it self-medication but my therapist thinks it works better than anything he could give me, so long as I don't overdo it. Two ales is one thing but three pitchers is, well, how I used to spend a Wednesday night in the Navy.
  • I only drink at the staff christmas parties,and even then that i might not drink. My father was an acholholic off and on for years and he finally quit drinking all together about 20 years ago. It was horrible for us. he stopped when my mother threatend to kick him out and divorce him. he was scared straight then.
  • I frequently binge drink on the weekends. Sometimes up to thirty beers or more in a 24 hour period. It usually takes 2 days to get over those benders, and I always say I'll never do it again. It's a very bad place to be, but I always comeback for more. I just can't figure out why I guess...
  • I really don't drink that much anymore...It's more of a social thing for me, and I rarely know anyone in the city I live. I'm not the type to go get loaded by myself. Tonight is a different story though. In a few hours time, I am driving to my previous city, and getting completely sh*tfaced with my friends. I hope to not remember a thing tomorrow.
  • not old enough to!
  • I don't drink because my step father was an alchoholic and I would get abused. So because of this, I don't like drinking at all.
  • I only drink craft beers, also known as microbrews. I love the different styles/flavors. I have enjoyed over 2,000 different craft brewed beers over the past 17 years. I have also brewed my own beer.
  • I don't drink because there is alcoholism im my family, and also because I hate the taste of it. I also like to feel that I am in complete control of myself.
  • Mostly to relax and loosen up. I rarely ever drink, and if I do drink, I have maybe one mixed drink or a beer.
  • I do not drink anymore because it was ruling my life. I put it ahead of everything else. My kids, husband, parents, everything. I did not want to be like that because I grew up with an alcoholic dad. I wasnt going to do the same thing to my kids that was done to me. I was once told that What you love is what you spend your time on. I spent my time drinking then. Today I spend my time with my family :)
  • I do, but it's because I actually like the stuff. I wouldn't drink just to get drunk if I hated the taste, I just wouldn't see the point. At times I like to go crazy and have a lot, if I'm in the mood or at parties I can't help but enjoy getting silly.
  • I don't? You don't know me at all do you!!!
  • Probably because I am a Mormom yeah I think that has something to do with it lol.
  • For me it's a waste of money. Besides I have fun without alcohal, so why would I need to drink? Sometimes I feel like I would enjoy being an alcoholic, but not really;)
  • I do drink but not as often as i used to, i can never ever drink vodka again after i was sick with it lol, everytime i open a bottle i end up puking cos it smells lol.
  • because i have to take too many meds and it would put me into a seziure if i was to drink.
  • Habit. Sobriety is oddly quite habit forming. Nowadays I usually only drink on a select few certain holidays or events, 4th of July, Superbowl etc...
  • Don't like the taste.
  • Cause everything about my life is a much better since I stopped drinking four years ago. Might be the best thing I've ever done. Definitely the healthiest.
  • Because I am at work or asleep. Otherwise I may be drinking.
  • Under legal age limit.
  • Because I don't have any rum in the house and am to lazy to go get some.
  • It tastes bad, bad for you, and I'm always going places and you can't drink and drive!
  • Honestly, alcohol never occurs to me. When I'm thirsty I think water, coffee, tea, juice, chocolate milk, pretty much in that order.
  • Did enough back in the day, figure I can use a break (Ec ain't gettin' any younger yo...:).
  • coz i cant afford to?
  • #1 - I'm diabetic #2 - I prefer to remain in control of myself and not feel parnoid #3 - I prefer to watch those who GET drunk #4 - I prefer to drive my friends home #5 - It costs WAY too much #6 - See #1
  • I don't drink because I don't like the way it makes me feel.
  • But you must drink, you'll dehydrate otherwise. To stay healthy, every adult is advised to take in at least two litres of water every day.
  • Because my liver and my doctor told me it was better not to.
  • Would anyone, if they reflected on the negative effects of drinking: how it can humiliate a respectable person through loss of sensible speech loss of smartness in appearance loss of self composure loss of ability to walk or even stand Now watch the person become sick in public abusive and violent on the streets and at home cause misery and strife to children and wife disturb neighbourhood in the dead of night destroying promising careers ruining good marriages causing break up of many families leaving mental scars on little Emilies causing accidents on roads, expensive vehicles battered limbs that need repairing, lives that are shattered drink damaged livers and organs struggling to cope a premature death looms if recovery has no hope costly medical and hospital resources have to be set aside for too many such cases all the earnings spent on drinks, so destructive could have been donated to a cause more constructive the drinks industry, focussed on profits, doesn't care not even a minute's silence can it spare to honour the dead, and think of the destruction caused by its intoxicating production Now there are so many liquids made by nature and man from the tropical coconut to the soft drinks can So when you feel thirsty reflect a bit and think even to be sociable do you REALLY need that drink
  • health reasons. the malt kills my kidneys and i have very weak kidneys. :( its sad i know!
  • Under the legal age limit, don't like the taste, would rather spend my time and money on more worthwhile things.
