How much do you drink?

Postby fairydandy » Thu Nov 13, 2014 10:31 pm

Now, be honest.

I'm thinking of cutting down now. I drink two glasses of red wine a night, for 4-5 times week. I don't know why, I don't get pissed, I just like it! It's becoming a habit though...and there is such conflicting advice out there. :?

My partner drinks two glasses a night and I only drink when we go out. This week when we were in Columbia I had four glasses of wine, one gin and tonic, and four beers. I felt like shit the next day because I don't drink as often as I used to.

As a youngster, I got outrageously drunk on nights out...and even as a not-so-youngster on the QOL meet-ups, I have been literally legless. :P I feel more confident after a drink, I am quite reserved otherwise, so that's my excuse.

I remember being at the Queen concert in Milton Keynes with a dreadful, dreadful headache caused by a hangover as we got ludicrously pissed on the coach journey. :lol: It seemed to be the way for youngsters back then, think that might have changed these days, or maybe not?

Depends on so much. Two drunks in a couple of days just very recently, I'm ashamed of that.
fd, you are so right about the conflicting advice out there.

I try to limit my whiskey imbibing to the weekend...unless I can't sleep. It's a terrible sleep aid though :lol:

I'll usually drink if I'm not working the next day; and I'll drink to excess if I wasn't working during the day, otherwise I'm just too tired.

The nightly drinking of my 20's and 30's has given way to a more measured approach as I have aged.
I remember in my 30's regularly waking up and going into the kitchen to see what I had cooked for dinner the night before as I had no memory of it. And yes, I'm a damn fine cook while wasted.
But now I find that not only do I need a free night to drink much but I need the next day to be free as well because I will feel like crap and I'm not willing to sacrifice a free day to vomit and a head ache.
So not very much.

Haven't had a drink since April 2010. Can't say I miss the hangovers.

on the top of my alcohol consumption, i used to drink one heavy beer, every day. needless to say my body weight went up.

then it went to one can of beer, every day. was glad with that achievment, but there was still a lot of work to do.

then, it was one can of beer, every two days until i felt comfortable with it.

i am now at a point where i drink only one can of beer, all week days combined, and then one on saturday, one on sunday. so that's three cans over a period of 7 days. still not satisfied though, it's still too much of a "need". I'm feeling very much like an addict, since i still can't stand the urge, how little my consumption may be.

i want to reach a level where i only drink in the weekends, and limit it to one can of beer per day, so an amount of 2 cans over a period of 7 days. when i achieve that, i wont call myself an addict anymore.

When we're gigging I tend to drink about 4 or 5 pints of ale across the evening (assuming I'm not driving), although I'll drink less if it's a Wednesday or Thursday evening.

Otherwise I tend to have a bottle of wine on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening. I'm looking to cut back as my weight is higher than it should be and I'm convinced the alcohol is a large part of that.

I don't drink any alcohol any more. Not because my diet forbids it- it doesn't- but because if I do indulge, it might affect my judgement and I may end up eating something I shouldn't. I don't miss it.

I've never been a drinker. I'll have a social tipple if its called for, but alcohol is not my cup of tea, so to speak.
I hate being drunk (I was young once!) and don't enjoy the taste of most alcoholic drinks so there's not a great deal of attraction to it for me.

Admittedly, on the meet up, should it happen, the beverages will help create a relaxed atmos for us, before we go watch a couple of masters and some bloke*. :lol:



* its just a joke, so no bloomin discussions please! :P
