What are your thoughts on drinking alone?

Do you do it?

Have you ever done it?

Do you think it is a good or bad thing?

If done frequently could it develop into an alcohol addiction?

 

I have done it a few times in my life. I usually do it when I feel depressed late at night and everyone else has gone to bed. My mother wasn't too happy about it when I told her. She says that drinking is supposed to be a social thing but I rarely go to pubs or anything like that. I don't mind drinking with other people but sometimes I just wanna have a few cans by myself. So how about you guys?

I often drink alone. I make theadmiral and gunwrath seem like teetotalers. It's not for amateurs. Do not try this at home.

I don't drink alone but I smoke marijuana alone almost every night. I don't feel depressed though. Spending time with yourself isn't a bad idea.

Uh, I don't think drinking when depressed is a good thing when you're alone. That's the only thing I see bad with that.

I like to drink alone. There is no problem if it's done with some moderation. You can't abuse too much..

I've started drinking alone sometimes because some of my friends were not buying anything, they were always drinking my beer and waiting for me to come with the cans.

I said f*ck that and now they've changed. I'm the one drinking their beers now

I used to drink alone until Don Draper told me I drink too much.

Might be bad when you're depressed, but if you're not and just want to drink, I don't see the problem with it. Obviously drinking too much, whether with or without people, can always be bad for you.

I never, ever drink alone. Alcohol is for fun times with other people.

1. It's one of the saddest things a person can do. 

2. Not any more.

3. Yes, obviously. 

4. Bad. Very bad. 

5. Yes, it almost certainly will.

I don't drink alone, I'm purely a social drinker. If I didn't have any friends, I'd be tee-total as I just never have the urge to drink outside of certain social activities. And these days I don't even drink that often. Only when clubbing or going to parties - usually get steamin' though because when I do drink, it's purely to get drunk.

 

I think I did try drinking alone when I was younger but it quickly seemed pointless to me. I wouldn't necessarily say it is bad but I would avoid it - aside from the fact that I don't personally like it, because it does seem like the kind of thing that could lead to alcoholism.

Drinking alone is sad. Go out and get a girlfriend and friends then life will be happy :)

You do such great artwork Graven. How about a pic that more elegantly expresses alcoholism? I wouldn't mind that for my profile pic. Alcoholism is sad really.

Yeah, why not. Especially when the kids and wife have been screaming in my ear. I can sit down and have a cold one by myself in quietness.  :^:

lol. There's nothing wrong with drinking by yourself if you're doing it because you want to. Drinking doesn't have to be a social thing and it honestly doesn't make it any better. I can drink alone because I'm at peace with myself and I'm not worried about being stuck alone with my thoughts Yes, I love drinking with other people but I can drink alone without a second thought. I have a wife and friends, but sometimes I just want to have a drink, chill, think about some things and just enjoy MYSELF.

 

Also I don't like the typical bar scenes. It's more expensive than drinking at home. Everybody is fake as hell, the drinks are watered down, and there's always somebody being confrontational. If drinking alone is sad then going to the bar by yourself is worse. sh*t, I've done it. I can never last more than two drinks at the bar by myself.

Nope, I only drink when I'm at a party/at the pub/in a nightclub and looking to get drunk. There are better tasting things to drink when I'm in the house.

Same as couple other guys, I only do it socially with friends or with the family some evening. I view drinking alone as a very low and dangerous place to go. If I'm not doing it to get drunk and have a good time with people, I may as well have a glass of orange juice.

 

I would also never go to a bar and have a drink on my own. That's probably worse actually.

Drinking alone is the best because no one tells you when to stop.

I can't get over my head that you actually asked if it is a bad thing or not?

 

Let's see. It's one of the causes of liver cancer. It can permanently damage your kidneys. It can get you depressed, it kills your brain cells and many more.

 

Yeah, it's so GEEEEWD right?
