I drink socially now. If I'm at a party or out on the town I will always drink, but never to get drunk. When you were underage that shit was cool. Now you just look like a jackass.

YMMV, it might not be "cool" it is always funny

I don't drink alcohol. Why? My body's a temple, I like to keep it that way.

Pretty often, alcohol is VERY common here, and is a part of social activities whether you want to or not.  If my boss tells me to come drinking after work with him, it's not something I can turn down.  Many people have a low tolerance, but I know of very people who just say they don't drink at all here.  The legal age in Japan is TECHNICALLY 20, but it's hardly ever enforced really.  Most social activities and get togethers tend to be drinking parties (nomikai, literally 'drinking meeting') with groups of people.  It's just a core part of the culture.

My tolerance is pretty exceptionally high, so I get lightly intoxicated...maybe weekly, but downright wasted is very very rare.  Maybe once a year (I think my last time was my 23rd birthday or so).  It just takes too much for me, so unless it's a nomihoudai (all you can drink buffet) it just isn't affordable for me to.  My preferred beverages are whiskey, nihonshu, shochu (soju), and beer, in roughly that order.  Umeshu is okay in sparing amounts, but gets too sweet.  I cannot drink tequila, as that will make me drunk VERY fast.  

On the upside, drunk driving is pretty uncommon, because you can just always take the train, so that is rarely a problem.      But I do enjoy drinking, it's a core part of the culture here, and I can't really imagine a lot of the social activities here without it.

I don't drink alcohol either, though I've come across a number of situations in college alcohol-related with anyone in my lounge.
-While I was still into the game, I played Yu-gi-oh against one of my lounge mates while he was tipsy from drinking.
-Had to wind up paying a portion of a fine from damages from a hole being punched into the bathroom of my lounge during my sophomore year. During that time, my lounge was mostly filled with student-athletes who quite often liked to have drinking parties. One of the guys they invited got a bit too overexcited from drinking too much and was responsible for the hole made.
-Had a roommate who was hospitalized overnight because of an alcoholic overdose.
-Was playing a drinking game during the middle of a party. Only difference was since everyone knew I didn't want to drink, they had no problem with me playing without getting a sip.
-Had a roommate who got depressed while drunk because he didn't have a girlfriend. He got so worked up over it, he kept kicking the top bunk of the bunk bed in his dorm until one side of the bed gave way and collapsed on the other bed.

How often do you drink it?: Never (took a sip of a drink once, haven’t tried it since)

How often do you get drunk?: Never

How often do you get wasted?: Never

Why? Because I see enough reasons not to drink working in the Emergency Room. Plus, it’s really gross.

How often do I drink? Like once a month.

How often do I get drunk? Never. I am a heavy drinker and can handle my alcohol very well.

How often do I get wasted? Never, again I can handle myself.

Why? Well I drink just celebrate something or just cause I wanna own people in shots lol.
