    This is a bit of a poll I decided to foist after reading many LPSG-ers complain either they had drank too much when they made a post or hadn't consumed enough. I drink alcoholic beverages, but not on a regular basis. And after years of tending bar have little patience for chronic drunks. However, that doesn't mean I don't understand the problem.

    I drink socially. Rarely when I'm here posting. Like you I don't have patience for sloppy, mean, sad drunks. The fun drunks which are few and far between can be a delight sometimes.

    None of those options fit me. I can't say I'm never drinking alcohol when reading/posting, I certainly can't say always either. Your other options are 'often' and 'other substances'. Well, once or twice a week isn't often and my days of other substances are far behind me.

    So I have to generate a 5th option - once or twice a week I'll be having a glass of wine while reading / posting here of an evening. I don't recall ever being drunk while participating at LPSG. For a start only get drunk about twice a year and when I do looking at a computer is about the last thing on my mind.

    I usually log on between 05.00 and 07.00, so yes I am always completely sloshed :alcoholic:

    Heh, then you will love my drunken teleconfrence calls to my fellow admins in the states, to do with the IRC network I co-run

    It's always expected of me to call up, totally arseholed on Guinness.

    Always brings a giggle.

    Nick of the sixes getting your rub?

    Frequently I type under the influence. Makes my answers shorter and to the point.

    However, I don't see that Marleyisalegend guy around. He claimed to be hitting shots of something while writing. Frequently it showed through in his logic and anger. And Dragonfly was banned.

    How many banned members are/were heavy drinkers?

    I'm a hilarious drunk and anything can happen when I've had too much. Friends used to get me sloshed just for the laughs.

    I only posted drunk here once and that night I went into the chat room as well. It was quite a lot of fun actually. I need to do that again.

    But really I am not much of a drinker or smoker anymore. To many things to do that are not alcohol friendly and I hate feeling like crap the next day.

    Let's meet for drinks the next time you are in NY or Honolulu. I'm a fun drinker myself. I usually end of taking my clothes off for some reason or another. Go figure!

    So if you are drunk and on the internet does that mean you are naked as well?

    The last really fun experience involved skinny dipping in the fountain in front of The Plaza Hotel and out running the police into Central Park. So whenever you are up to it. BTW it takes very little persuading to get me out of my clothes after four or more cocktails... the people who will still go out drinking with me can attest to that.

    I don't imbibe alcohol or do any street chems while posting on LPSG.

    I work in bar management with a LOT of alcohol. I don't drink while on duty either. I could lose my job if I were intoxicated...and that ain't happening.

    Naked?

    While on LPSG.org...No. Never naked.

    At the bar around all of that alcohol...No. Never naked there.

    I can't really vote in the poll as the options don't apply to me.

    That said, I am a social drinker. I will have a glass of wine with dinner a few times per week. When we are on vacation with friends in other states, we tend to have a bit more to drink (either in their homes by the fire or pool) or at a sports bar (we rarely go out to the bars when we are home.

    I rarely drink alone. I can count on one hand the number of times in the past 5 years that I have had alcohol while perusing this site.
