    And alcoholism is completely different to casual drinking and more-so than binge drinking. Your dependency "on the drink" is uncontrollable when you are a full blown alcoholic and trying to stop cold turkey after so many years of abuse can actually kill you.

    My brother was one from age 15-37, he has done a year in Rehab, he has done all of his studies, he has been a "AA" counselor for over two years. If anyone knows about alcohol, it's him.

    Few times a week. When going out or on Fridays after a hard week I tend to pour myself a good glass of whiskey.

    I don't drink if working the following day as hangovers no matter how mild ruin the day for me if I don't get me some proper sleep.

    On weekends? as much as I can get away with.

    Dying for a drink today, usually do after the 2nd day of sobriety. But I'll wait it out till Thursday.

    Rarely - as in less than a six pack a year with a few mixed drinks from dining out thrown in. Even at my "peak" a few years back I probably averaged ~ 4 drinks/month. I like Rum & Vodka, but they are expensive and I can happily live without them. :p As for Beer, I drink it to be social and/or with wings... Beer and wings just go hand 'n hand. (from Buffalo, NY area originally, so that might explain it...). :cheers:

    Yeah same here, haven't had any alcohol in 4 or 5 years now, won't be having any again either, I got into too much trouble when under the influence.

    In my youth I could caount the days on one hand where I was sober. When I turned 25 I decided it was enough. Lost a few friends and saw a couple go off the deep end. Didn't want that in my life anymore and since you can't change what the poeple around you do you have to change what you do by changing the people you have around you. And that's what I did. Moved out of the city and stopped going out. Worked like a dog for a few years I didn't sleep at all. It was tough but I really didn't want to live without ever knowing what life was really like.
    So, to answer the OP's question, I drink about once every 3 or 4 years. Mostly during get togethers with the friends that I left behind to sober up. Sure I'll get drunk that one time but I won't do it again until the next meeting 3or 4 years later.

    I'll have a glass of wine on special occasions, maybe an odd beer here and there (usually after I come home from hiking :p). Also, if I'm around sick people, I may have a shot of schnapps; it helps prevent any potential sickness. :D

    That's about it. Never was much of a drinker. Don't think I've ever been drunk, either.

    I was drinking all the time when was 13-20, then at 21 stopped all of that, now only few times in year, and not to get drunk, just to make company to others ;)

    I drink 3-4 times a week, usually a 22oz of IPA, sometimes with some Jameson. I usually drink too much on Wednesdays for some reason. cest la vie
