I came up with this poll on the fly because I don't like any of the recent suggestions. I also tried tequila for the first time recently for the Lunar New Year.

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Over the years, has the kind of manga you typically read changed?
Choices:
Now I'm reading more stuff meant for the youth - votes: 219 (5.3%)
Now I'm reading more adult, mature stuff - votes: 1804 (43.3%)
Stayed about the same - votes: 2147 (51.5%)
There were 4170 total votes.
The poll ended: February 9th 2019

For those who changed, it totally makes sense that you lean more toward the mature topics as you get older.

Mostly On rare, special occasions these days for the purpose of socializing and only if I got close friends/colleagues to share the moment with.
I never drink alone, though I have a decent tolerance to it, I'm not much into it.

Never. Never even tried it, actually. Women don't really drink where I come from (well, the highest of the upper class and the lowest of the lower class do, but I'm middle class, so...) And even if they did, I wouldn't be interested; waste of money and time, imho.

Sugar is my only addiction 😉 people around me drink, so it's highly unusual for them when I don't follow along. But I don't like the taste and I've got some personal reasons as well to not even start with that shit. As in, ever.

I'm in the exact same boat as MinatoAce. I dislike alcohol, but I handle it just fine. I wouldn't exactly call it peer-pressure because no one ever tries coercing me, but I drink at occasions where it might seem socially inappropriate to not drink, like when champagne is being poured out for new year's.

Never. I can't drink with my epilepsy meds and was diagnosed when I was thirteen, so I've never even tried alcohol.

I went for once a month but it's more once every few months, and it's casual. Long gone are the days of drinking to actually get drunk for the night.
Sometimes I'll drink a pint while watching football or something.

Drinking: Never. As a child (like, 6-ish years old), I ate one of my grandma's brandy pralines. Made me throw up like a damn fountain. Poor trash can. That probably killed drinking alcohol for me. I DO ingest alcohol when used in tiramisu and rum balls, though. My money is better spent on manga and figurines.

It would be good to include if one is on legal drinking age.

On rare, special occasions. We had a party in my apartment this week, so I drunk rum a few days ago. The bottle will now likely sit around till someone else drinks it dry.
I only drink hard alcohol. Beer tastes like total shit. Wine ain´t great either, despite being good for your health in moderation. 30%+ stuff at least burns and has an effect. I have a strong tolerance for alcohol btw. I can drink about 0,7 liter of vodka till my body shuts down. My Russian grandfather though, ho boi. He could drink that stuff, on a near daily basis, like it was water. That´s what the Soviet Union will do to you. He and my beer loving stepfather are among the reasons I barely touch alcohol.

@Nekore People who are into alcohol don´t start drinking with 16 (the legal age for soft alcohol over here), 18 or 21. I had my first taste in elementary school and my first smoke in kindergarten, due to being barely supervised. That´s how I learned that both are not for me.
I even dislike pot. What a boring adult I am.

Well that age limit is only handy if the kids are supervised my little brother got a taste of beer as a 2 year old kid and when there had been a party at our babysitter he drunk the leftovers of that the day later. When I was a kid I've had some wine at bbq with my parents before I was 16. Now they have changed the laws and alcohol is only allowed for 18 year olds.

I can drink but rarely do so I do not hate the taste and some that I used to hate like red wine I can now appreciate a bit more but I just see it as a waste of money. Overal I just have problems with losing control and alcohol is something that is also addictive so I only drink in very moderate amounts and stop drinking when I find I've had enough.

It's about likelihood (and of course shouldn't include accidental intake), if you're 16 there's a higher chance that you have never drinked that if you're 26. Still laws are different, if in the US it's illegal for minors to drink where I live it's only illegal to sell to minors so independently of how did you get it there's no problem with drinking it (of course as long as it's not in public).

I can't say I dislike pot as I've never tried it but I'm just not interested on altering my consciousness,as I've said above it's just about likelihood, of course many minors have drunk on some occacions with family (also it could separate special occasions with more regular meetings).
