    I am honestly curious why some of you guys drink? I had a sip of my wifes wine last night just to taste it so I am a drinker I guess.

    But why do you drink? Like the buzz, like to check out of reality for a bit, makes you feel better? (if so please say how)

    Getting ready for my 60's and I have still yet to figure out why so many like alcohol.

    I quit asking “why” a long long time ago and started asking “why not.” Highly recommend it.

    I can not and will not speak for others but as for myself I just like a good drink now and then. I hate being drunk so I rarely get there just don't recover like I did when I was 21 but to be honest didn't get drunk but on a rare time then. I find it relaxing and although I am a strait on the rocks type of whiskey drinker. If all beer was non alcoholic I would rather drink that on a hot day then iced tea or a cold soda!

    I love a good IPA, can't stand hard liquor, and haven't been drunk or buzzed in 20 years. Just like the relaxation. I drive truck, so moderation is a must.

    Because after I cut the grass, weedeat, edge...the backpack blower just won't crank unless I have a beer open in my freehand. I've tried, it just won't. Plus I have to have a reason to use my recycling cart the city gave me.

    I feel bad not supporting my local homeless population, for every can I throw out the window, a hobo gets a nickel.

    To be honest it's the "Buzz" and I believe that to be true for most folks.

    Honestly if pot was legal here I really don’t think I’d drink much, if at all.
