Sometimes weather people realize it or not they're very unhappy and alcohol boosts their confidence, allows them to have a good time and helps them escape for a while.

i used to use it as a social lubricant. i would feel shy, i'd kick back a few - i'd be the life of a party. unfort. if i have any drama in my life (and as i gained weight) it had the opposite effect on me and i'd turn into the depressed crying girl at the bar, calling her mom from the curb asking "why do i always have to be the fat friend of the hot girl!???????????" .... so i totally stopped drinking.
if i'm at a bar, i dont even bother with "just 1" - it doesnt touch me, and is pricier. diet coke for me.

I think that's good if you want to socialize and stay in control and healthy that's great. I used to be like you Kate, and I used to drink ALOT and I turned into that blubbering person and thats why now I rarely drink and if theres the slightest sign that I'm getting out of control I quit it.

nothing attracts me to it. i might have a drink every couple months. i'd much rather eat something than drink away my calories in booze.

I have social anxiety, so it really helps me out a lot with that. That's about it - otherwise I hate it. I should probably get some medication or something, save me the calories! haha

When it comes to wine and champagne, I simply love the way they taste. Other than that, though, I'm not a big drinker. And I only have a glass of wine or champagne once or twice a month.

Wine has always been something I enjoy drinking. I only drink it once a week with my dad and it makes me happy. As for the bars...you can have them. Bars are pointless wastes of money in my opinion. Except for my beloved piano bar.

I love the taste of beer..

Mostly what I guess "attracts" me to drinking is that I'm a very mentally organized person. I'm constantly thinking about goals and life, if I'm not studying or something. When I drink it relaxes my mind a little bit, gives me a break from my own head. I don't drink everytime I go out though, and I go out about every other weekend.

Nope, I'm no drinker.....never been an attractive thing for me really and besides, I really prefer to eat my calories. Or, if I am drinking them I want something yummy with a bit more sustanence, like a smoothie.

I second this, mostly. It isn't that I like the taste, but I love the way it makes me feel relaxed when *trying* to be social. And that is dangerous for me because I could easily let this get out of control. But I haven't been doing much socializing as of late, so it hasn't really been an issue and I rarely drink alone so...

When I first started college, I used to go out and get black-out-drunk every time i went out because I was so nervous. Now that's out of control. I'm much better now, I learned from my mistakes. It's hard to keep drinking under control when I have such high anxiety! I love to go out with my friends, but it's just scary. Agh.

I actually just like the taste of some drinks. I don't drink a lot and rarely rarely get drunk. I like the taste of a good martini, a really well made whiskey, and a good red wine. And there is nothing like the flavor and fizz of an icy cold beer on a warm summer afternoon - or while eating hot chili on a Sunday afternoon while watching the ball game.

I don't drink anything I don't like, just because it's alcoholic and there are plenty of times that I will have something non-alcoholic instead, just because it's what I'm in the mood for.
