I have 2 shots of a sipping rum or whiskey (rum more often than whiskey) every day or every other day.

to start with a quote from Tom Waits:
'I don't have a drinking problem, except when I can't find a drink.'

I usually get myself 2-3 bottles every other day and take 2cl of each in a nosing glass to compare them and relax. Listening to some Lounge or easy listening Jazz, Blues or just Chilling music. Sometimes a thin piece of dark chocolate comes with that.
Once tried a Santa Damiana Maduro Robusto and sipped a Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. Really good but it has been my first cigar as well as crosstasting ever.
And unfortunately i had to open my windows for like 2 days to make the smell disappear.

I generally have one drink about 5 days a week. Generally split between bourbon and rum. That amount can actually be benefical to high blood pressure. Higher intake increases blood pressure according to several studies. As a retired pharmacist I find it is a great deal better than adding another pill. The whole process can be very relaxing as well. I look at the drink as a positive lifestyle change.

Generally on a weekly basis and normally 4 glasses, depending on which rum i'm drinking it may or may not be mixed with a cola, ice or lime.

It depends of what is in the shelf... If there's Gosling, so it could be every night twice... If it's a 7 or 12 years old, I keep it for important days. (my anniversary, the cat's anniversary, the anniversary of my first lost tooth, etc.); More is dangerous - for my health and/or for my purse's health.
But I don't drink in daytime, or if I drank some (wine, beer, or whisky) then I don't and wait for the next day.
Well, that' what usually happens...

I find myself typically having 1 or 2 cocktails every other day or so. Sometimes 3 or 4 nights in a row. Alot depends on if I have any new rums to the collection to try or not. I always try any new rums straight first. Never tasted one I can honestly say I would sit around and sip straight. I always mix my rums with a Pepsi. Prolly a shot and half to two shots per 12oz can with ice.

Give it some time...They WILL find you.

Cruzan Single Barrel was the first rum I actually liked sipping neat...
Now, I prefer the following neat: ED 15 and 21, Ron Zacappa 23, OLD Planters Pyrat, Pampero Aniversario, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, Cockspur 12, Santa Teresa 1796, Mount Gay 1703....I'm sure my "neat" list will continue to grow

I selected every other day, since it is closes to reality with me. I rarely drink every other day, but I do enjoy a drink several times a week.

For the past year it was on most Saturdays or Sundays (Sailor Jerry and Coca Cola) but wanted to cut on the sugar intake then switched to (Rye and Ginger Ale), that's still too much so went with (Vodka and Garden Cocktail) but then weren't drinking the bottle of Garden Cocktail fast enough and it would spoil.

All of this for the Buzz I love getting and how well you fall asleep when you hit that pillow.

Now that I've "matured" I'm looking into sipping something good (like old J.R. in Dallas) and not necessarily looking for the buzz. However I'm afraid my buzz days won't be over for quite a bit

Lately it's been every day. but then I tend to drink a Riedel Whisky glass about 1/2 full in the "bowl". Not a lot. Ever since I got back from vacation my diet's been a little looser so a drink every night is no longer verboten. Straight up, no water or ice. I've even found the 43% rums to go down a little too easy...hmmmm
