I think, I could drink some alcohol when it's recommended for my health.. Like for cold and so, but otherwise not. I also have drink little in some weddings to cheers, but I never been dunk. Though first time I was drink I was around of 5 years old we found my grandfathers distiller from forrest.. there was forrest start from backyard. but i did not get drunk. It was so discusting. So my brother and cousin had good idea they mixed it with water from pond.. water + frogspawn and then they drink it. :lol:

I think I was really drunk just once. I don't remember what happened that night, but apparently one of our friends showed us all his balls in the middle of the street. According to my friends, he did it right in front of me, but I don't remember anything :?

Well I read this post and had a giggle!

I have been drunk many times. When I have seen bands etc with friends. I'm not saying that I was out of control but I was relaxed. What is the problem with that? :roll: As long as you know your limitations there should be no problem.

Once again I feel that some members judge others social habits. Why?

Live and let live! If a few drinks make some people more social and have a great time, so be it! I feel sorry for people that can't enjoy themselves! :!:

well, i get drunk regularly on most weekends :) (although this is not what the topic is about, it seems that it is already turned out to everything about alcohol :o ) it makes me relax and have a great time with friends.. and after a damn week full of lessons, it makes me turn back to life..
judging social habits? :shock: no way.. it is out of this topics limits..

Live and let live! That's right. Until they drink and don't bother others, by being drunk, I don't care. But if some more social drunk ~ want be social to me. I don't like. I don't like if his her breath will cut my smelling organs from 2 metes long distance like a 3 meters long sword...

Oh, it is so pleasantly to drink a bottle or two of cool beer after a work day.

most of people are like drink when they are unhappy , then they will dirnk much , and think that the wine can help them forget some unhappy things , but they don't know when they wake up , they will be more unhappy , and wine is not good for your health, so i suggest, if you are unhappy , you can do many things , you can sleep , you can listen the music, they are so many ways , but not drink too much ,

Some men get some spirit by reading books. Others get some spirit by talking to friends, getting a lot of social contacts. Others get some spirit by doing their hobby, fullfilling their dream.
But, all these measures are of minor importance, because alcohol is the real spiritdrink.

I may seem off the topic here, but I don't think my cousin that had been hit in a car accident by a drunk man had enjoyed himself in the intensive care before he died :!: :!:

That man had a few drinks as you said with his friends and then went home in his fancy car, but he is "living" now and he didn't "let" my cousin live.

I think that drinking alkohol is nothing bad! Drinking a bottle of wine or a few beers improves quality of party ;) That's a great fun! You are more relaxed and you don't mind what other people will think
Of course it is negative if you drink too much. I know the girl who is not a virgin now,and she doesn't remember what has she done! What's more driving after alkohol ought to be punished!!!!

Everybody here in Brazil, mainly in the parties drink wine and beer to feel more relaxe and to enjoy the party with their frinds. And there are many people who drink only to lose the shyness to talk with a girl and make a relation. But all of this it's ok, the problem here with the bevarage it's that many people drink a lot and after, get inside a car... the most accidents here it's because this. :cry:

well, i don't exactly get it.. do you lose your mind completely when you're drunk?? :? or you just can't focus on things, like when you have headache maybe?? :?

either way, i don't think i will ever know..

you can drink if you want, but please don't you go into street until you're aware of what you say and do.. :D
