    I stay drunk through the holiday season.

    Holiday season being Valentines day through New-Years.

    I consider drunk to be very buzzed.

    I hit that level a few times a year.
    That doesnt' mean I don't drink numerous beers (6+) on some given nights.
    Most of those nights are long ones. For example we played poker the other night and I had 8 craft beers (12.oz) average. All between 6%-12%.
    I felt more tired than buzzed. Probably because we started at 7pm and played until 3am. Way later than I normally stay up.

    January is my 2 nights a week month. Allow 3 beers any two nights M-Sun. Time to get in shape again!

    Light-headed: once a week when I have my two craft beers on Sunday.

    Buzzed: maybe once or twice a month, when I go out with friends.

    Drunk: used to happen fairly regularly during college (once a week), but now only when we do really elaborate tastings that turn into craft binges, so now I would say once every 3-4 months.

    Smashed: this happened once or twice a year during college.

    Blackout drunk: literally once in my life. Never again.

    Far less than the amount of times I drink beer. Honestly, my beer drinking has increased but the amount of times I'm actually drunk has gone down. Now buzzed is another matter there officer Dribble...

    I haven't been drunk since the army, I can't afford it. I'm not what you'd call a cheap date. I don't think I've been moderatly buzzed more than 8 or 9 times since '83. then only 'cause somebody would bring a bottle of jack,or jim, or even better mi amigo jose. ;) My usual is 2 or 3 beers and call it a night.
