Not saying I never have a beer or a margarita at a restaurant, but I basically don't drink. Probably around 12 drinks a year maybe?

So I'm not drinking tonight.

Who else?

Three beers, maybe four. Quiet evening at home reading the "Assignation of Patton". Probably won't make midnight.

Not me.

Never cared for beer, like whiskey a little too much so I pretty much leave it alone these days.

I'm also on call, but highly doubt I would drink even if I wasn't.

A few years ago, a friend of mine was celebrating his graduation from college. He lived right around the corner from me, so I walked over to his house....well....once people started showing up, I broke out the Jager and started taking shots with each person that showed up....i had 11 shots in just over an hour and on an empty stomach. That night, for the first time ever, I actually don't remember part of the night. Then, once again, for the first time ever, I had a hangover the next day. It lasted all day. Haven't gotten drunk since then. I have had a drink about 2 or 3 times, but nothing that would bring me above the legal driving limit. Also, I can't stand beer...i was a liquor guy...and even then, I hated the taste, just did it for the feeling. So I won't be drinking tonight.

Wow, surprised there are so many of y'all here. Nice to see. I don't go around lecturing people about drinking. Some can handle it I guess. I never blacked out or drove drunk but I wasted a lot of time and money on alcohol.

I suppose I didn't like the "pull" or "gravity" it had on me, like if I bought a 12 pack of beer, I had to drink them all. I couldn't have one or two a night.

A bottle of whiskey? Why open the bottle and not drink it all?

Glad I stopped doing that and I've got to say I'm much happier without.

I have maybe at most 3 drinks a year. It just doesn't do anything for me.
Not having anything to drink tonight. Staying home and watching the ball drop.
