How often do you get drunk!

I'm a little buzzed now. Usualy one or twice a week I get over the limit. Only a few times a year do I get totally trashed.

I'm REALLY buzzed right now...on caffeine! Alcohol can be fun for me but only if I'm with the right people, which doesn't happen a lot. So not too often.

once I drink 1 beer then next 11 seem to go pretty quick. I'd say once a month. I can't just stop at 1 or 2 so I don't drink to often.

I've had to cut back to about twice a month. I was getting wasted 4-5 times a week. Time spent wasted is not wasted time.

It's too much work to get drunk anymore. I don't like headaches or the feeling like crap in the morning. So I usually quit after 2 or 3 beers.

+1 The hangovers hurt more than they used to. If I drink too much I just fall asleep and feel like crap the next day. If getting drunk is fun for you, enjoy it before you get too old - but please don't drive!

Does anybody over 30 get drunk that often anymore? I know I don't.

I may have a drink now and then, but I almost never "get drunk".

I spent many years bouncing and playing gigs in bars, not to mention my years in the military. I could drink like a fish and hold my liquor. Last time I was drunk was in April 2004, for the duration of our weekend company 'meeting' in Cancun. We started at 8:30 in the morning Friday at the airport...and didn't stop until about noon Sunday back at the same airport, with a lot of partying in between. (Senor Frog's was a blast...I think)

The next month I got really sick and ended up in the emergency room. After a lot of tests, they determined that I had pancreaitis, which is caused by either gall stones...of which they could find no evidence, or 'binge drinking'. The light bulb went off in my head. Haven't been drunk since, though I still drink a couple of shots of tequila if we go out to sing karaoke or sit in with some of my friends during a gig.
For medicinal purposes only of course.

Same here. I can honestly say I don't get drunk any more. It's just too painful!

Well, OK, it's always been painful - I've always gotten hangover's fairly easily, but now the recovery just takes too damn long. These days, even 3 beers will make me feel like crap for most, if not all, if the next day.

Now I am a martini or scotch man and very little of that...

We used to subscribe to the notion that the best way to avoid a hangover was to stay drunk...so on them little morning jaunts through the countryside we'd be passing a flask of Jack between us! God really must look out for morons and Marines...it's a freakin miracle I survived my 20s!

our sports lounge would indicate that the answer to this is YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
one more reason I dont want to get drunk, when you're sober and deal with drunk people it puts everything in perspective.

I know that feeling Chipcom, but in my case it was Morons and Army Tankers in the Fulda Gap!
