How many still drink Alchohol?

With the health concerns expressed by most on this board, I wonder how many drink Alchohol? If you drink, what is your poison and how often?

I didn't drink at all until I was 26 yrs old, now drink red wine or Tequila, in fact I'm going to walk to the local watering hole and have a couple of tequilas while talking to a nice young crossfitter.

I HATE beer, unless is an occasional ( couple times a yr ) pub visit in Scotland.

My goal maybe different than most. I'm 50 yrs old, 6'3 and 250 pounds, shooting for 300 #'s and 10% BF within next two years.

So, do you drink or abstain?

Re: How many still drink Alchohol?

Beer, pretty much anytime I'm at a good Mexican, pizza, or burger place. So roughly once per week, plus maybe 1-2 beers with dinner at home 1-2 other nights per week. Or whenever I've got a fresh 5 gallon batch of homebrew or hear about another local brewpub I want to visit...there are just too many good microbreweries in San Diego not to drink beer here.

Liquor or mixed drinks, very rarely. A glass of bourbon a few times per month is about it.

Re: How many still drink Alchohol?

I need to lose weight, so I avoid alcohol.

I keep telling myself when I get to where I'm at I'll loosen up a bit. Problem is you get SO used to not eating any kind of junk food that you start avoiding it without thinking.

Re: How many still drink Alchohol?

I'm trying to lose body fat so I rarely drink since beer and the drunk fast food binges in the middle of the night were a key reason to me getting way fat a few years back. But when I do drink I prefer Jameson on the rocks or blue moon draft.

Re: How many still drink Alchohol?

I drink some beer, wine and whiskey. I'll have a drink or 2 a couple times a week but I don't get drunk more than once a month usually. I don't like cheap beer and I generally only like beer when its hotter weather. I like scotch and I buy a new bottle to test out every few months.

Re: How many still drink Alchohol?

You are going to a watering hole with a nice young crossfitter? A date I assume, how did it go?

I like my beer, sometimes wine, sometimes scotch...for me I don't care. You only live once and because I don't believe it greatly affects my health (I rarely succeed two drinks) I'm going to enjoy the one life I have.
