At most, a rum and coke or bit of whiskey, and that's rare. I don't get drunk (I mean, I probably would if I drank enough, but I don't find drinking enough for that to be fun or entertaining, so I don't do it.)

Pepsi or ice water.  I'm apparently that rare breed of Irishman who has no interest in drinking.  If I want to have messed up brain function, I'll play COH for the better part of a day, and then play more, and sleep barely at all.  Oh wait, I've done that a lot as is.  OG 2x weekends man, I did NOT sleep during them.

During Live, I had a real drinking problem when I was playing CoH.  Or maybe I had a real playing CoH problem when I was drinking.

 

Regardless, I'm in a much better place now!

Intoxication of some sort is one of my top reasons for not caring about perfectionist topics like never dying or pylon times or clear times. Ain’t nobody got time for that. 

I don’t drink alcohols though anymore.

Oh yeah, definitely. I do all of my best tanking when I'm completely plastered.

 

I also only tank when I'm drinking.

 

I tank a lot.

 

Oh...

Of course I drink while playing. I keep a 20 ounce glass of water by the computer at all times.

...

Oh, wait, you mean drink alcoholic beverages, don't you? In that case, let me explain something. I don't like the taste of the common beers. I don't like the taste of tequila, vodka, brandy, or whisky either. They are too damn bitter. Even more damning, I don't like the way I feel when I drink the stuff. I'm frequently unsteady on my feet enough due to low blood pressure. As such, even a single can of beer spread out over a couple hours makes me unstable and makes it difficult to do much of anything that involves having to stand up. I don't like that feeling. Pale ales that are kept chilled have a tolerable taste, to me. And if I make sure to only drink a bottle on occasion, and even then only while eating a meal, the side effects of being unsteady are mitigated to a large degree. I've also found that I do like sake on occasion. I drink the traditional amount of a single saucer, only once a day, and rarely buy the stuff to begin with. It's extremely bitter, but the traditional amount is past the tongue quickly enough to not be a problem. And with such a small amount, it just leaves a warm muzzy glow for a while instead of destroying my balance and making me feel mentally off balance. Once again though, I only drink it when eating a meal.

 

Still, I rarely even consider buying anything alcoholic. As my dad puts it... I'll decide to drink a single Blue Moon, once in a blue moon.

No.  When I'm gaming I'm gaming. THIS is the pastime. Same with other gaming pursuits.

Nope.

1) Can't stand the taste of most of it.

2) I'm diabetic so I really don't need the empty calories.  I'd much rather destroy my 'diet' with some fresh, warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookies.

 Drink of choice is Diet Mountain Dew.

When the game was live, I was in college so there were a few nights I’d get home intoxicated and play. I’m sure I got put on some ignore lists. 
 

Now, I am a responsible member of society. I drink every once in a while, sometimes while playing, but I don’t remember the last time I was drunk. As far as what, usually a dos x or a lone star.

Hilariously enough, I have far fewer low blood pressure dips when I've got some booze in me. They're unpleasantly common when I'm sober. Edit: And I'm a fattish smoker as well, go figure.

My low blood pressure dips tend to occur when I stand up too fast. It's within the healthy range, but just barely high enough to be within that range. And I'm very much a light weight. I admit that. Then again, I don't want to develop a high tolerance to alcohol either.

Even back when I did drink, I almost never drank while gaming because I just didn't find the experiences particularly compatible. I quit drinking a while back, though.

Some games, as I understand it, can be more enjoyable to a subset of people when they are drunk. But those are often games like Mario Party, where reflexes and coordination aren't king, and lacking those can add to the amusement factor.
