I love going to the pub. I'm a football fan so during the season I use that as an excuse to go to pub and have a few beers. I'm what you call a social drinker really - I don't have to drink, I can happily have a coke there, but sometimes having a couple of pints with your friends is a great way to spend the evening. It also makes you more confident - but then can also make you more of an idiot. Just know your limits and don't drink too often and it has more ups than downs.

No. People think I'm weird or uncool for being against it but let's just say My childhood was pretty horrifying thanks to alcohol.My mother would get so drunk she would be missing for days passed out somewhere. Sometimes she couldn't even remember her kids names. I was the oldest kid in my family and I had to be the parent while she layed around drunk off her ass. I barely speak to her anymore now. Alcohol destroyed my family so no, I won't touch the stuff. I would never want to end up like that.

No. I don't like the taste and I don't like being drunk -- needless to say this has caused some Scots I've encountered to suggest I moved to the wrong country!

I don't drink very much really, but you can't beat a nice cool beer at a summer BBQ.
Yeah Sean, I think you should move to Saudi Arabia mate! Do you partake of the haggis to make up for this Scottish faux pas?

I've had vegetarian haggis and enjoyed it; I don't eat meat or chickens though, so normally I wouldn't.
It's just a spicy sausage, folks! I think black pudding is definitely more icky than haggis (a little offal never hurt anyone -- what do you think's in an Oscar Mayer hot dog exactly?).

Anything that has to be cooked in its own stomach is not on my list of yummies. And I don't eat hot dogs or anything else that uses processed meat. And if I ever get a beak in my bucket of Kentucky Fried, I'm off that s**t too.

Nowt wrong with a drink now and again. I probably get drunk half the week, but responsibly and with company, no problem in fact it's quite normal. Nice beer, Whiskey, or red wine, that's me. And as for haggis, YUM! And black puddin' too, mmm.

A vegetarian haggis! Now I am sure you are in the wrong country.

You know, black pudding is probably one of the key examples of how the stereotype got started that all British food is disgusting.

Ugh. I will never try black pudding. I don't think I've heard of anything more fouler to eat.

I'm the same way though, the only alcohol I take in is from little German chocolates.
Many years ago during a summer in Germany I watched an unusual classmate attempt to get drunk off of those little chocolates. Needless to say, he ended up feeling quite sick from all the sugar before he ever reached intoxication. (On a morose note: that kid collapsed and died in the middle of the day a couple weeks later, rather inexplicably from an unknown heart condition, but that had nothing to do with the chocolates.)
I drink, and it can be quite enjoyable within certain bounds, although--like everything else in life--it does require an acknowledgment of your limits and an ability to moderate.

What's wrong with black pudding, you all wouldn't be so fussy if you were starving would ya, you'd scoff it up like the animal you are. Mmmmmmm.Anyone tried Mr Brain's Faggots? They're scrummy too.

And here I was thinking a faggot was a British colloquialism for a cigarette. And yes, those look disgusting as well.

Fag = CigaretteFaggot = a herby meatball.
And yes I'm still on topic as I'm gonna go get a beer now.

yes, i drink occasionally. it's fun to get together with friends and chill or go out for a movie and have a drink with dinner beforehand. how much I drink at a party tends to depend on what kind of crowd i'm hanging out with and whether or not i'm welcome to stay the night, to be honest. :3
for you guys saying you don't understand people who decide to imbibe on occasion, here's a tip: don't rag on the friends you have that do if you're out at a party or someplace where you knew there would be alcohol in the first place unless you don't really want to hang with those friends anymore. a true friend will respect your decision not to drink and will not pressure you to drink anything alcoholic, but in turn they will not appreciate you complaining every time they reach for a sip of their beer.
