I loooove wine and gin, cider and even the odd whisky. My problem is I am drunk very quickly, plus I don't get hangovers. Dangerous mix coming from a family with a lot of heavy drinkers. Consequently I am very deliberate in my drinking. Once a week and always within allowable units. I don't mind being around drinkers, living in NW England, I would never speak to anyone ever!

I tell you who I don't like, people high on amphetamines. With their clucking and grimacing and teeth grinding. Also the dumping syndrome so faecal incontinence. We get a lot on the wards...hard work.

Haven't drank in 13 yrs, and can't stand being around drunks!

I know what you're thinking! But the picture is from 15 years ago!

@davknight the photo isn’t you, so I wasn’t thinking anything.

It is extremely boring to be the only sober person around drunk or stoned people.

Don't like alcohol because it dehydrates and gives me a headache. Not worth it.

Agree 100%.

I limit myself to one beer at the social gathering we have here called Pints and Politics. Once per week.

Sober since the age of 40, and never a 420 fan (makes me puke, literally), I'd rather be alone than with a highly intoxicated crowd. I thought that sort of behavior was a college thing that most adults outgrow...

I don't mind someone that has smoked weed but a drunk is another story.

I think I live in the city with the highest per capital alcohol sales. They start early in the day.

I love alcohol. I fully understand how awful it is to be around drunks when you are sober but when you're drunk too, it's a hoot!

Yes but when one doesn't like to get drunk, it is not fun being around them.

@Travel1 Yes, I completely understand that.

I was a bartender in college. Drunks are foolish, obvious, randy, belligerent, often bores, and sometimes a good time. Much prefer to be around them when I'm more inclined myself.

Still, drunks are much more fun than weed enthusiasts who tend to withdraw and reveal little. Of weed I was never a fan and being around those who were was often a joyless exercise. At least drunks are good material. (I wrote a play about it in college.)

I was amazed when my eldest son told me that about weed. I always thought socialising with friends when drunk was a great opportunity to say what you really think about life.

A drink or two can help some people be more social, but I’d rather avoid drunks. I usually am the DD.

I will only drink 1-3 beers but more than one is rare.

I happen to have Flush Syndrome and can't process alcohol at all, but since childhood have hated being anywhere with drunk or even partly drunk or high people.

I don't mind people having a few drinks but can't stand being around drunks.

Once I hit 40, alcohol just makes me tired.

I don't have anything against drunks, but I need all the energy i can get.

I never liked the taste of alcohol , so that's that. And though rare - if I'm around drinkers, when I see that they're going over the sober edge - it's time to go home.
