A sales rep for one of my suppliers came in today and said tomorrow will be 30 days sober for him. He said he was drinking at least a 12er a day minimum.  I used to be a social drunk, and would be drunk 5 nights a week. Now I only have a few drinks a year. It wasn't getting in trouble or anything, it just got boring and I would rather spend my money on guns and other fun stuff. It got me thinking, how many alcoholic drinks do you consume a day?

Sometimes one or two.

I gave up beer entirely (mainly) because it made me feel bloated and burp constantly. I still like wine but like you said, why spend money on that?

After a particularly hard day, I might have one.  Sunday I'll probably have three in the afternoon.  

Never saw the appeal in getting stupid drunk.

2 1/2 Months at Zero drinks....used to be 6-8 daily
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:00:51 PM EDT
I usually have about 2 drinks 4 or 5 days per week (not even enough to get drunk, especially when it's the crappy Corona lights the woman gets), 1 or 2 days nothing, and one night (fri/sat) I'll drink quite a few.  Some weeks I'll drink a couple every night, other weeks I won't drink at all.

I don't get the proud accomplishment of depriving yourself of something you like.  Instead of 12er a day, maybe he could just drop down to 1 or two a day, some days maybe none.  Or maybe if he wants to get crazy on New Years Eve, he could have 3! If he has the self control to stop drinking completely, it shouldn't be a stretch to cut the drinking down.

Oh well, it's a "disease", guess it can't be anyone's fault.

1-3 beers/drinks every 6 months

sometimes longer, I could easily go the rest of my life without alcohol.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:04:34 PM EDT
My goal is four this afternoon.

106 degrees here today.

I like my beer like I like my women, cold and bitter.

I used to in my immature youth, but then I figured out that it was really expensive and I really wasn't doing anything that was in the least bit productive.

Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:08:51 PM EDT
I dont drink everyday, but say 4 days a week I will have one, two, sometimes three pops.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:09:06 PM EDT

Some days a six pack...some days none. Just depends on what's going on and what I want to do. I've gone months without a beer and not thought about it, some days I look forward to a couple of cold beers. YMMV.

Just the weekends

I've slowed down a lot in the past several years since I've been a little less of a regular at the bar.  I don't drink at all most days.  But when I do, it will either be one or two, or like 14 beers and 10 shots, depending on how the night goes.  Sometimes it's not good to be a short walking distance from the coolest bars in town.

Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:13:12 PM EDT
I have a single drink maybe once every two weeks or so.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:13:22 PM EDT
maybe an alcoholic beverage a week.  If that.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:13:33 PM EDT
I quit drinking in Feb, 2010.

I was drinking a lot of beer on a daily basis before then.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:13:44 PM EDT
Enough to make life tolerable.

(drunk Friday and Saturday night most of the time, maybe a drink or three on Mondays and Tuesdays from the leftover weekend supplies)
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:14:37 PM EDT
Only time I drink anymore is at family functions or when some friends and I go to the bar and play pool, so meh.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:16:06 PM EDT
14-18 piss beers a day.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:19:30 PM EDT
I'll have 2-3 fingers of scotch about once a month or so, usually with a good cigar.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:19:44 PM EDT
I don't drink, just because
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:20:15 PM EDT
I have a drink every couple months.  Last time I drank was when Bin Laden got killed.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:21:17 PM EDT
During the week, none unless there is a work thing.  On the weekend, maybe 3 not even enough to get a buzz.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:21:39 PM EDT
I'll have to answer after I mix another drink.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:22:39 PM EDT
I rarely drink at home. I'll go out for dinner a couple times a week.

I usually have 2 or three drinks (usually beer) with my meal.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:23:07 PM EDT
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:24:28 PM EDT
I average a 6 pack of beer and a few shots a night.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:28:06 PM EDT
Poll fail no "87"
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:28:12 PM EDT
What is this alcohol you are talking about?

As you can guess, my answer is zero ( by choice, I REALLY dislike it and have seen to many drunk idiots pissing themself )
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:29:06 PM EDT
4~5 a night.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:32:36 PM EDT
I have a glass of wine maybe twice a month or so.  Used to drink in the Army 20 years ago, rarely to drunkenness, but stopped when I got out (no problems, just didnt have the same social context to drink in).  Since then, its just not been appealing to me.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:35:06 PM EDT
Poll is skewed. Shouldn't include 0 in the same selection as 3.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:36:58 PM EDT
There is no appropriate answer there for me.  I usually do not drink during the week and will get drunk onw night per weekend, a little tipsy the other night.  Probably 14 drinks over the weekend.  I guess if you average this out, I fall in the 0-3 per day category.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:37:36 PM EDT
2 1/2 Months at Zero drinks....used to be 6-8 daily

Good for you, keep it up.

We just had a baby so I usually have 1 or 2 per night during the work week then I like to relax more Fri/Sat and if I don't have a hangover Sunday I will have a few in the afternoon but I am typically sweating it out mowing or working on something. My lazyboy got tossed along with my independence lol.

I'll drink 2-5 times a year with 2 drinks at most during each one of those times. The army wanted to know if I wanted to seek counseling for my drinking problem.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:44:17 PM EDT
I drink maybe once a week.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:45:32 PM EDT
Like once every two weeks or so. So that's 1/14th a day?
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:45:41 PM EDT
0 drinks in 12 years.

Maybe because you were so far below the average, they were concerned about you.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:48:18 PM EDT
0 during the week  and  0 during the weekends I am on call...    I get out 2 Saturday nights a month if I am lucky, and  I usually make up for the other 28 +/- days of the month
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:50:40 PM EDT
I usually have maybe one a month.  Never cared much for it.

It varies. Sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes nada.

I drink when I'm in the mood.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 1:53:43 PM EDT
On the average - zero.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 2:05:36 PM EDT
Beer (or a whiskey, or wine) with dinner usually.

Sometimes, especially on the weekends, I'll have a little bit more. An ice cold beer is fucking awesome with bacon, eggs and potatoes. Only rarely do I get drunk, and I've never gotten drunk enough to get hungover or sick.

A lot of folks have totally different ideas of what "drinking" means. For many, drinking means "getting drunk". For others, it means enjoying a beverage. These two groups typically can't ever see eye-to-eye to the issue on drinking, as the folks that only ever drink to get drunk can't relate to the folks that don't drink to get wasted.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 2:19:12 PM EDT
I drink approximately 0.21 alcoholic beverages per day.

...that is, 1 or 2 per week or so.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 2:21:25 PM EDT
Less than 12 a year.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 2:21:55 PM EDT
Most days, just one or two.  Every once in a while, I like to really tie one on.

Before I got married, I was a drinking sumnabitch.  A 12 pack and a bottle of Stoli a night.  I got hitched and quit that stupidity.
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 2:22:38 PM EDT
Less than one
Link Posted: 8/12/2011 2:23:25 PM EDT
I figure about 1 per month.
