Alcohol and Drinking (General Drunkenness and Discussion Thread)

Being an adult is a pretty sweet thing sometimes. Sure, you have bills to pay, jury duty to attend, bank statements to file, and all other shenanigans, but you also have a number of legal liberties to being of a certain age, and my favorite happens to be alcohol. And this is where you can talk about it, post while you're drunk, that sort of thing.

Since becoming 21, I've taken the liberty of trying out different drinks to suit my tastes. I have discovered the following...

-Beers taste fucking nasty
-Malt beverages are okay if I'm just chilling, but give me a bad hangover
-I prefer hard liquors to malts and beers, and I seem to favor Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey.
-Whisky has a bit too much of a kick for me right now, though I might develop a taste for it.
-When I'm drunk, I become a happy giggling dork who can't shut his face. Great at parties, I guess.

Anybody else?

I do not drink ethanol.

At the risk of stepping on toes, I regard the use of any recreational drugs, including the legal ones, as stupid behavior.

Despite this, I believe adults should be allowed to consume them as long as they hurt no one else. I also believe marijuana should be treated like tobacco and ethanol--legal and taxed up the wazoo. Also as with ethanol, driving under the influence should be forbidden strongly.

I also distrust my country's War On (some) Drugs, as a danger to the civil liberties of the USAmerican public. It locks up many of my fellow citizens in a gulag system for no good reason and encourages corruption among our law enforcement agencies.

I don't drink alcohol and don't plan on drinking because of obvious reasons.

I wish I could get your thread rolling, Shiraishi, but no alcohol for me for several months.

My roommate and I are very keen on playing some variation of the Kaiji drinking game, so that's something to look forward too.

Other than that though, I never really got why people want to get totally drunk just because- what with hangovers being a thing and that you could be doing something else. I don't know- I've decided to obey the law for alcohol up until now so I won't really have much else to say until then.

I am also among the Teetotalers. The reason is simple: I AM A MONSTEROUS CHEAPSKATE. Social Tippling costs MUNNY. If a mistake is made (due to inebriation), it costs A LOT MORE MUNNY.

I like my munny. I like it in My Wallet (where it belongs) and NOT going to the Police, the Courts, the Lawyers, the Insurance Companies, the Hospital, the Doctors, the Auto Repairers, etc....

Finally: my apologies to you, Mister Shiraishi-kun. You wanted a thread comparing cocktails and instead got the Nay-Sayers Society. Perhaps this will be the turning point, and a bunch of drunks will begin posting (where is Droote when we need him?).

Cheers (non-alco', of course)!

Good report of your alcohol quest out in the field!

Me, I don't favor some of the rarer draft beers. I'm partial to Sam Adams, Bud Light, or Heineken. I like to start with a gin and tonic to get in the mood. I just tasted my first Bloody Mary last month too!

Can't afford to drink because of medication, though I do enjoy a quick glass of sake, gives me a light buzz and get me all giggly.

But I think I'll be drinking a bit more frequently when I'll be off my meds, just you wait.

I'm no heavy drinker, I like some wine from times to times, however I am very weak to alcohol, it gives me sleepiness (some headaches when I'm tired), make my face red (yes, just like animes) and make me feel a lot of heat. But, well, having a glass or two of wine is always nice for me. Also tried and liked whisky, I still want to try sake.

Agreed.

I myself have drank before but I don't really feel anything except for momentary buzzes. I guess it doesn't help that I've never had more than three bottles in one setting, though. So yeah, I'm not much of a drinker.

I don't really have any preferences just yet although I dislike straight-up beer.

i don't drink alcoholic beverages either, I've tried a few, don't like beer or wine, blue WKD was quite nice, i enjoyed some fruity cocktails, whiskey's a nope.
also, it's expensive and i much prefer the taste of soft drinks, which are cheaper~
I don't see the appeal of getting drunk and i don't like being around drunk people, but i tolerate them ^_^
