Default How often do you booze?

Are you the type who can put easily down a six-pack of Red Stripe (or a good bottle of red) every night or is drinking strictly a weekend affair for you?

Rarely drink alcohol.
Before the pandemic, ONLY if out with family or friends, then only a couple of drinks.
I can't stand beer either.

A glass or 2 of wine with a meal is usually all I have.

Only weekends atm. I may have a couple on a weekday (depends if football is on really) but otherwise it’s mainly just a Friday & Saturday evening.

Last time I had a drink was in August when I met up with some old friends for the first time since Covid. Last time before that was a wedding in September 2019, time before that was the stag night for that two months before. And the time before that was at another wedding in 2017. So, not very often .

In late school it was Friday nights and a very occasional Saturdays, most of University was Wednesdays and Saturdays. So twice a week I guess when I was a regular drinker.

There was a spell in first year uni when I was out Weds/Thurs/Fri/Sat for about 3 months and I ended up really unwell. Lost about 2st and I was poopin' blood .

Weekends generally. Especially for getting totally wrecked. I might have one or two through the week if I have had a crap day though.

Sometimes I kind of wish I could be that guy but at the same time all these vices make life more bearable/fun so it is what it is.

Very very rarely drink to the point of being drunk now. However I like to share a bottle of wine and we tend to have it on a Thursday Friday and Saturday so I prob drink 1 and a half bottles of wine each week
