I think a better question would be "Are you drinking more often than you used to?".

Knowing how much and how often others are drinking instanter is fairly irrelevent to one's own experience. Its too easy to use other experiences as cover for our own. But I would hazard a guess that those of us who frequent websites promoting alcoholic beverages are perhaps more likely to face the risk of a growing habit.

But we'll never find that out in this thread.

'Hard and often' doesn't seem to be an option in the poll, so I'll just tip-toe out of here and slink into the 'drunken soaks' thread.......

The banner on my Mt. Gay XO bottle keeps waving every time a breeze hits it.

I'm not sure I agree with you on that one. Personally, since I have taken an interest in the finer spirits I find myself savoring them rather than just drinking them down. Also, I am no longer drinking a whole can of coke or ginger ale with every drink I have. Instead I am pouring myself an ounce or two of rum and sipping it slowly. That's gotta be healthier than tossing back a few beers or mixed drinks.

Of course there is also the occasional event where I consume far more than I should, but I consider those to be temporary relapses from my younger days, not a growing trend!

I think Joe Walsh said: The smoker you drink, the player you get.

I can rarely keep up with the big kids when we go out drinking. Especially not the likes of Paul McFadyen at IP Bartenders or Jake Burger at Portobello Star or Ricki Brodrick at Trailer Happiness with their years of professional training.

Sampling small amounts of many fine spirits neat leaves me mindful of the power of the spirit, but tossing back a few well mixed zombies or killer punches can put me over the line with ease.

I'm with Shock Therapy on this one. Now, that I've discovered the art of savoring fine spirits, my liver has been on light(er) duty. As to "Knowing how much and how often others are drinking instanter is fairly irrelevent to one's own experience. Its too easy to use other experiences as cover for our own...", I have no idea what you are talking about. Judging by the preceding posts, I would say that most of us are marching to our own drummer and taking ownership of our own parades!
