Thoughts? I think its necessary to drink solo every once in a while.
i see nothing wrong with it. sometimes you just want to enjoy a beverage
is your boyfriend out of town?
Absolutely, I do it all the time on the weekends. Usually start off with 2 or 3 at home then head to the bar down the street and see what trouble I can get myself into...usually turns into a great night.

It's the only nice way to drink. Unless you're with a small group of very close friends and you have a great conversation. Otherwise drinking with other people is usually in a terrible bar/club with shitty music that is way too loud and you can't talk to anyone. At home by your self, turn on some good tunes, read a book or magazine with a nice beer/wine/scotch in your hand, there's no other way.
I loved doing it. But are you drinking solo if you're with your RCMB friends?
Very true, prepare for a flurry of topics that will get deleted by the evil mods later on lol
Only depressing if drinking with others is a constant impossibility.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
It's great... I also like drinking on my lunch break and hiding bottles around the yard so no one knows when I drink.
It's the only way for me.
as long as you're talking to yourself, I see nothing wrong with drinking alone
why should you not do something you want to do -- that does not harm others -- simply because other people have a social objection to it?
I think it's funny how kids under 28 think this is something strange and pathetic. Getting drunk solo without a MSU game on, and you might have an alcohol problem, but there is nothing wrong with a few cocktails alone after a long day of work/family.

hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
You know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself
It's a much maligned and misunderstood activity. Like just about anything else, a few bad apples tarnish the image for those of us who almost never miss work or give our wives a taste of the back of their hand (unless they're just not listening).
In all seriously, it's no big deal. I'm near Houghton Lake this weekend for a couple days of blissful solitude at my cabin, enjoying some peace & quiet, and sipping a little single malt by the fire tonight. It's more than a little alright.
I am normally not much of a drinker, but I will admit to drinking alone this week.
I found out my wife had a miscarriage.
Sometimes you just want to be sad.
I actually really enjoy throwing some back, listening to good music and collecting my thoughts. A cigar is also a good option.
Nothing wrong with it whatsoever. Having a few beers watching a game, or some while getting ready to head out...or a few shower beers, it's all good.
Fuck bro. Sorry to hear that. Good luck.
damn...i'm sorry to hear about that...
The older I get the more I enjoy it.
Yes. In fact, it's called "Thorogood'ing." As in "I'm Thorogooding like a goddamn Man this morning."
I do it a couple times a week. With young kids it's hard to get out.
Enjoying a fine craft beer right now as I chill after dinner with my laptop. If someone has a problem with that, fuck 'em.
Here's a pretty good pro-drinking alone essay from Modern Drunkard magazine. Sample paragraph:
"Drinking alone, on the other hand, is a much more pure and forthright form of imbibing, and I say that because it focuses entirely on the simple act of putting alcohol into your bloodstream. It tosses aside all the half-hearted pretensions about merely using alcohol as a social tool. It gets down to what drinking is all about: getting loaded, and by doing that, getting down to the inner you. The inner joy, the inner madness, the subconscious you, the real you."
