What was your poison? And How much?

I drank mostly beer. Cheap beer mostly. I'd buy a 30-pack of Natural Lite and it would last me two days if I was lucky. When riding in the car, I'd buy three or four big bottles of Bud Lite. Sometimes, I'd drink Cpt. Morgan or Jack Danials mixed with Coke.

I would drink anywhere from 10-20 beers every day.

Wine and brandy for me. Used to be mostly wine (2-3 glasses on weeknights and 6-8 on Fri. and Sat. nights) with a little brandy on top. Past six months though I was shifting more to the liquor...wine wasn't cutting it. Almost a pint of brandy a day!! Only did that for about 6 months thank goodness.

All beer for me. Usually one or 2 pints of strong microbrew pub stuff on the way home after work, and then 4-6 cheap beers at home, sometimes more. And then definitely around a 12 pack a day of cheap stuff on any non-work day. I could never stand booze or wine.

Having said all that, all that matters to me is that I don't drink anymore. It's all alcohol and it's all bad for you if you have a problem with it.

Lol...Natural Lite...that was my cheap beer of choice too. I would drink 18-24 about 3-4 days a week. I'd buy a twelve pack thinking that's all i need..then i would walk to the liqour store and buy another twelve pack the same night. Almost every time. I stayed away from buying the 30 pack because i knew i would probably drink the whole thing as I have done before.

Bud Ice/Steel Reserve sometimes combined with Wine or Vodka most every weekday night. Usually 2-4 32 oz ghetto bottles. Got to the point I was skipping dinner for a better buzz. All day drinking at least one day out of the weekend with fellow "party people" (Actual Alcohol Varied but usually consisted of a 12 pack of regular beer plus margaritas wine etc).

Why do you want to know what and how much everyone drank?

all the adjectives seem to romance the booze...how exciting is the freezer cold wine and beer, the microbrew, etc.

I drank wine mostly, red in the winter and white in the summer...I drank bourbon in the winter and vodka in the summer....by the time I stopped I would drink anything...except gin...(can't stand the smell)

Beer! I developed a taste for good beer and as my alcoholism got worse and worse I couldn't afford good beer. Then I switched to cheap beer. After that it didn't really matter what I had.

As far as quantity? As much as it would take to pass out most every night.

I was just curious. I'm not trying the act like any of it is romantic.

Hahaa, Natural Lite here as well. Would drink a 12 pack of NL and two 40's of King Cobra a weeknite, sometimes would need to go back for more, and starting on Friday nite I would get the 30 pack that nite and Saturday another and Sunday back to the 12 pack with the 40's.....to mellow out, but still get more if needed. Then it really got bad when I started drinking at work too so I really don't know how much I was drinking then, couldn't keep track of much at that time. Btw, does Listerine and isopropyl alcohol count? Hahaa, 28 months sober now with the help of fine people such as yourselves.

between a half and full litre bottle of vodka a day in secret, then cider or red wine if we went out socialising. My last binge I drank over a litre one day and knew I was in trouble.

Smirnoff vodka, and a lot of it. Usually half a liter of it a day, but often more. I drank it straight at room temperature so I wouldn't shock my system by drinking cold liquids that had excess calories. Beer and wine too, but they became bad for my health so I was careful not to go overboard on those.

Stout or sparkling ale usually. Around 12-15 a day.
Vodka with diet coke. Around 1.5ltrs if that was my poison of the day.
Dry white wine (a few bottles). I tried to limit this as I live in a wine region and free wine from cellar doors is everywhere.
Mostly anything I could suck down.

EW I can definitely relate to that! I used to eat right before bed so I didn't mess up my buzz. SMH

I mostly drank beer...Bush Ice...5.99 a 12 pack and 5.9% alcohol. It was cheap and had a kick. I usually drank 10-15 beers a day every day. I usually went to the store every other day to pick up a case so I probably averaged 12/day.

was drinking 20 beers a night. I think i could push 30+ on holidays. About the only good part of that was they were only $2 a piece for Bud Light bottles at my local bar so I didnt waste too much money before I finally realized what an idiot i was.
