I dont drink much these days. Maybe have 2-3 nights out per year. Even then, its all very civilised and restraint is shown. The rest of the time....im tea total

I don't drink much anymore.  I'll have a couple drinks here or there, but otherwise not so much.

Probably not an alcoholic or he wouldn't have been able to perform consistently all these years.  My guess is that Noel is exaggerating.

everything Noel says should be taken with a grain of salt, his stories i mean. that's why he's so funny.
Really? Huh. I might look into his comedy.

I balance you out by drinking a little bit every day! Moderation should be done in moderation.

I enjoy a craft beer, a Guinness, or a glass of red from time to time, but hardly ever over-imbibe.  Life's too short not to enjoy...

life's to short to be drunk is my motto. seriously i wasted so much of my time and money drinking.

when i drank even then i hated wine. instant headache. you're supposed to wake up from drinking with a hangover, not start the night with a hangover.

interviews. not stand up specials. and his banter on stage is great. that's what makes his solo tours so strong. his personality.

I don't drink at all and have had maybe one or two alcoholic beverages my entire life (and I'm 28). I just don't like the taste of alcohol, have had that hungover feeling from dehydration before and don't want to have that voluntarily with alcohol, and don't like the feeling of not being totally in control of myself. Not to mention it seems like a waste of money to me, as does frequent Starbucks trips.

I don't have a problem with drinkers, though. Lots of people in my family/friends group drink, so does my boyfriend (and he's used to a higher concentration of alcohol than we Americans are) and it doesn't bug me. I only get annoyed with drinking when people are flat out drunk at a concert and bump into me/spill beer on me constantly.

Catnip occasionally, but a glass of warm milk is my vice at my age.

Hahaha, Catnip is practically a Class-A drug for felines! I remember my cat Susie's (RIP) insane reaction whenever I gave her some catnip. She was hilarious to watch!

I've never been much of a drinker. Used to have a few drinks when I regularly went nightclubbing in my youth. I had a few hangovers (horrible) but rarely drank to excess. These days I only drink alcohol once in a blue moon really. Will usually get in a bottle of vodka and maybe a Bailey's or an Advocaat at Christmas and on the rare occasion I go out to a restaurant I'll have a glass of something with my meal but otherwise I'm just not that bothered really. The last bottle of anything I bought was last Christmas - a nice bottle of Absinthe! I love it's aniseed taste. :)
