OTWP's thread suddenly got my polling juices flowing, so I figured I'd put my poll juice to work.

In an average month, how many days do you consume an alcoholic beverage?

1 to 3 days per month. One or two drinks per time.

Twice a week, usually no more or no less...so I voted 6-10 days.

Chug your drink.

Eh, I figured some people might be leery of divulging their drinking habits on a public forum otherwise. But I'll pay my debt later tonight. :)

I used to only have a few on a weekend night, back when my bike was still working / without a flat (drinking and riding..no-no). Used to have little time to drink; bike nights, weekend rides; rides to Arkansas etc.

bike has a flat; haven't ridden in months.grr

Occasionally. We're talking once a week or so.

Although, I have never and never will partake of poll juice.

I drink 2 or 3 days a week. Usually no more than one beer. I very rarely have more than 2. It's a far cry from my 20's when I drank basically every night, and I would say I drank at least a case a week. That's probably a very low estimate.

Delano
10-15-2010, 02:52 PM
Hmm. I wonder what the binge drinking rates would be.

6-10 days per month and maybe 2 days of binge drinking.

I probably average six beers a week. Sometimes more (I'm going to have A LOT tomorrow morning as I brew a wheatwine and a dunkelweiss with my homebrewing gang), sometimes less (until last night I hadn't had a beer in 10 days).

I just realized I wrote I don't think there's something awesome about it. I meant there is. That's probably how you took it, anyway, I think.

Bearcat
10-15-2010, 03:27 PM
Voted 6-10, but 10 is probably stretching it... I think the Colts game has been the only day this month that I've had a drink. On average, I'd say a beer or two a week while at a sports bar or whatever, then some other event on a weekend or 3 per month.... so yeah, on the low end of that range.

Yes...ha...I am with you. And I love a few drinks with friends...relaxing and having a good time.

My comments here and others that have popped up in various threads are mostly from experiences starting years ago. Being a bartender, not at some cool place but at a place where there were just lonely sad people drinking to not be around or forget their situations at home. For hours on end. It has also completely devastated someone very very close to me. It isn't evil or anything....but too often the reckless use of it gets glorified way too much.

6-10

I'm at a bar every Saturday, but I don't always drink alcohol. Figuring 8-10 days per month during football season. Maybe 4-6 days per month otherwise. Rarely during the work week.

Diabetes puts a 2 drink per day limit on me, so I consider a drink or 2 to be a 'ration' and enjoy according. I have my ration or half-ration 4 or 5 days of the week, but at the end of the month I may have only had as much to drink as I drank in 2 weekends, back in the day.

I drink 2 beers a night mon. - fri. sometimes sat. (when I work). On days I don't work, usually about 10. Much better than the days the wife and I would go through over a case a night. (New wife, better habits). On the funny side of this, what it took for me to sober up this much, moving to Mexico.

I drink 1-2 glasses of wine a night. On the weekends, I usually have one night where I drink quite a bit more. During football season, I usually drink on both Friday night and Saturday during the day into the night, so it turns to two days of drinking quite a bit more.

I do usually take off 1 random night a week for various reasons (too busy to have a drink, don't feel good, just feel like I need a night off).

>1. I think I've had one in the last 3 months. Maybe this winter I can find some time to relax. I just got out of the habit of buying it, so I just don't have it to drink it. When I was in Sidney, I got in the habit of drinking a glass of red wine each night, because it is supposed to help your hear, I might try that. If nothing else, you WILL sleep. Especially with Merlot. :D

I've always made a distinction between the poll's question and "drinking". Whenever I refer to "drinking" it means more than one a night.

To each his own, I guess.

10-16-2010, 06:36 AM
It all depends if I am "training" or not. If I go work out then I won't have a drop, because it will feel like I wasted my workout. If I don't, I'll have at least a couple of drinks every night. And I tend to binge drink at least once(usually twice) on the weekends. Drinking a lot less now that I am getting back in the gym, and my flag football league has started on Sat mornings so I don't drink basically except for Sat, Sun, and Mon. LMAO I voted for 11-15

I'm not much of one to drink alone. So, since my wife can't drink with her medication, I "may" have a nice scotch or a glass of wine once every couple of weeks. When I go to the sports bar to watch the Chiefs, I'll probably have two or three to keep them from tossing me out (*grin*).

I used to drink more often and in more quantity when I was younger and in the Army (always someone to go drinking with then ;) ), but nowdays, I prefer to savor a good tasting drink rather than downing a bunch of inferior stuff.

Yep, that's me, the alcohol snob. *grin*
