The occasional RTD (new years etc) and maybe a glass of wine of Christmas. Not really into ruining my young brain with alcohol by getting hammered every other Saturday.

not too keen on red wine, it gives me headaches
Is it your shout Cato, or what?:D

Metla

Export Gold.
Jim Beam.

Would prefer Chivas Regal but its too costly.

Have got into the habit of visiting wineries and doing some tasting, talking and buying over the last couple of years.

The only problem is I get the thirst every so often and lay waste to everything within reach.

I always have a bottle or two of Chivas handy, just give us a ring before come round :)

If its got alcohol in it I will drink it. Got to drink its the only way to beat the stress of this fast modern life style we all have.
I forget about all my problems when drinking they just go away.
I just really feel sorry for alchies, teetotalers, muslims that cant drink dont know how they cope. I would rather be dead.
My fav beer is DB export, wine sparking red (rose) spirit is rumbo. Love artillery port.

Ring ring ring answer the fone dam you.

Probably between 6 and 12 cans a year. Usually a lager beer. Drinking to much alcohol can cause health issues which I have found out.

For me ATM it's mostly Diesel.

You know, the Bourbon/coke premix. They only call it that because the first one tastes like it.

Can easily knock back 8-10 of 'em on a wednesday night (I work weekends).

I used to like my Jim Beam, but no so much now after the... incident. It invloved a whole bottle and large amounts of vomiting in front of my mother.

If I'm feeling cheap, I'll just buy a bottle of bigfoot and get smashed off that. If I'm feeling generous I'll but a 24pk of speights so everyone in the house can drink 'em (one's a diabetic).

There's a beer commercial that covers that ;)

I am prepared to concede that at moments of major conflagration, water has merit. Also ferries thrive in it, but otherwise it is well suited to what fish do in it.

Premix is convenient for some lawn mowers no doubt.

I know 13yr olds that drink unsupervised. Disgusting.

Cato
03-03-2010, 06:57 PM
That's just weak. Parents should be aware what 13 year olds are doing as far as I am concerned.

It's bad parenting IMO.

My grand parents used to let me have quarter (if not 1/8th) a cup of wine when I was 10 or 11 (two maybe three times a year) when we had something going on (had to beg heaps). Nothing irresponsible there, IMO.
But I have seen this abused, one of the guys at work had a 14/15 year old that would easily outdrink me, probably everyone on here. And her parents would be right there, not minding the fact that she's going through a six pack in half an hour. Something very uncool going on there.

The point of cigarette tax is not to make money, rather to deter people from smoking as it's a health risk whatever way you look at it.

There is a difference between drinking and getting hammered day in and day out. While I do at this point fall into the later group (I've already had a few drinks today and it's barely 5pm). I would say I am a productive member of society.

But back when I worked (I study now, no classes tomorrow) I only drank friday and saturday nights. And it worked well I think.

I believe that to be a cynical alcoholic you need to have two drinks a night. A lot of people fall into that category. Funnily enough, I probably would get a decent benefit if I did apply as an alcoholic.

Smoking pays for the health care system. I will still smoke, but I don't have a family to support or anything like that, but I would probably grow my own tobacco if the prices did double or move to the states and become a lumberjack.

Yes it is. They are a bunch of bastards making money off a diseases.

A disease that they brought on by showing young people how un-authroitarian it is to smoke. I was trying to be a cool when I was younger. And smoking was cool.

If the government wanted to get rid of the "smokers" blight, they would ban it outright. And that would make sense. But raising tax on tobacco is about the same as war profiteering as far I as I see.

I don't want to pay for some fat *****/******* who can't get themselves to go to the gym or get on a bloody diet.

This is plain extortion and unethical profiteering as far as I am concerned. Bastards.

I wonder, at the end of the day, does the government make money off P (or is that pee)?

Smokers are a target, as are bikers. Tomorrow it will be drinkers and the day after it will be someone else.

There are studies that prove that drinking is about as addictive as heroine. Don't see much happening about that, do we?

It's all about making the fortune not about the people actually suffering.

Unfortunately, there's no option for Scotch in the poll.
Whiskey is that awful sweet American bourbon stuff, often used with coke.

We had a family dinner at a Chinese restaurant a while ago and an Asian family came in and sat at the next table. My father-in-law and I were horrified to see them bring out a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black and a bottle of coke and proceed to mix them. That is sacrilege!!

Good as it might be Ciccy, it is still a blend of whiskys that were not quite good enough to stand on their own. I'd not turn my nose up at it though, in fact I'd not turn my nose up at any proper whisky, single malt or blended.

Reminds me of when I visited Japan as part of a Business tour and we all stocked up on whisky as gifts for our various hosts. When we were leaving there was just one bottle left so we gave it to our driver as he dropped us at the airport. He held it like a new born baby and looked like he was going to either cry or kiss somebody.

Earlier on I hadn't quite grasped the significance of genuine scotch whisky to the Japanese and treated the barman at our hotel to a Scotch (the standard kiwi 'have one for yourself on my tab barman' and he just about fell over the bar.
