It also destroys their livers with extended abuse.

So does Tylenol...

Wow, my only comment here is that some of you guys seem to be a pit paranoid about alcohol. One drop is not going to kill you. 3-4 beers is not going to kill you. Unless you are downing shots constantly, you should be fine.

My recommendation would be to go out to a bar or someplace nice (whats up with people saying stay home and drink??) and get a nice beer with a few friends, maybe try a couple different types and just chill out and then go back home.

You could try mixed drinks if you like. And, assuming your a guy, don't ask for any stuff like hard lemonade or smirnoff ice... lol get a beer.

Drink with friends you trust, who can keep an eye on you if you are an inexperienced drinker.
Just because you are drinking alchohol does not mean you have to get drunk. Just take it gently, and pace yourself.
Personally I avoid spirits because I get too drunk on them, these days I prefer to drink beer - I prefer lagers - as they are fairly low alchohol and pretty filling - so my intake is naturally limited.
I find the older I get the worse my hangovers are - so I go to great lengths to avoid getting drunk. If I really tie one on on say, Friday night, the whole darn weekend is wiped out trying to recover, and that is no fun at all. also in my job, i can't afford to have the shakes or a weak stomach ( I am a veterinarian)

There seems to be a lot of fear about alchohol - this must be a peculiarly American attitude. In Europe alchohol is much more a part of the cultural scenery - in France children learn to appreciate wine with food from an early age - it's only the Brits and the Irish who seem to drink just to get drunk. I've outgrown that, but when I was in university I spent a great deal of time and money on learning to drink as much as possible and still walk away from it - and it was all completely pointless ! I'm pretty sober now, but there is nothing to beat a glass of wine or an ice cold beer after a hard day at work.

All things in moderation - including moderation!

I love the Italian attitude of drinking anytime, anywhere and drinking for fun - not to get drunk. If I drink (being British) I drink and don't stop until I get plastered.

Well, I won't turn this into an argument, but alcohol is poison to your body. Ask a doctor, Doc. Food and water are necessary...alcohol is not.

Having been studying cell/molec biology, metabolism, biochemistry and organic for the last 4 years I think I can trust myself to make the call.

It's all about the amount.

How would you know Ronald if you never have tried it, might help the social life a bit ;)

LOL, this is a funny thread. The guy asked for drink recommendations. :)

Is this a bad time to mention the substances I tried in college? ;)

Vodka (Grey Goose, Roth, Ciroc, Belvedere, Pravda, Level) and Cranberry Juice is great. Stay away from Smirnoff, tastes like rubbing alcohol

Too many in my family drink like fish. I grew up with it all around me, constantly. Maybe it's why I want nothing to do with it.

My heart really goes out to Clueless163, who started this thread. I started drinking when I was about 15, and quit when I was 49. I drank just about every kind of drink out there, and I drank in every conceivable situation. I partied, drank alone, and with one or two close friends. I only had one, and other times I lost count. I don't think there is anything I don't know about drinking. With all that, I honestly can't bring to mind one occasion when I now think drinking did me any good at all. And, I can immediately bring to mind any number of occasions where drinking caused me grief. Listen, Clueless (and anyone else who's interested), why not just sell your car, divorce your wife, shove the job, and disown your family and friends now, and save all that money you would otherwise spend on liquor getting there the hard way?

Moderaton, control/willpower and responsibility are all big factors if you ask me.
The other night I brang some vodka to a friends house, and he had some friends over. To say the least, I was the only one there who was not drunk out of their mind, yelling and screaming random songs, although it was my alcohol. I was the smallest guy there, and I watched how much I drank. Puking and making an ass of myself is not my idea of fun.
If you want to be an idiot and become an alcoholic, you won't have trouble doing-so. If you want to have slightly impaired judgement, drink responsibily, enjoy different drinks and control your habits (I only drink with friends / at parties, once I begin to drink alone I will consider myself as having a more severe problem), you will probably find alcohol to be relatively harmless.
