    Sometimes I wonder how often certain posters are sober, not to mention names

    ...but there sometimes seems to be countless evidence that RF posters aren't always sober. Lol!

    How often are you sober?

    I'm sober for now. :)

    I’m sober now. But I’m at work, so I’m not allowed to drink.

    I’m sober fairly often, by Australian standards anyway.
    Won’t be tonight though. Tis the weekend!!

    I'm sober. I don't have any issue with having a very occasional beer or glass of wine, except that my stomach does object and I've learned to listen to it rather than suffer the consequences.

    Drink some for me and wish me luck. I envy you, wishing I could enjoy booze without it destroying me.

    I'm always sober. Don't like the thought of not being in control of myself.

    I am sober right now. I know. I know. I am grown adult, what kind of example am I setting? It started out in college. I would get sober with the guys on the weekends. Then it was a couple of times a week, just to relax and unwind. Now I am sober almost all of the time. I need help.

    Always sober :D I don't mind wine during meals (well am french so yeah... ) But other than that, don't drink much alcohol.
    I'd say one or two glass some months xD
    Beer makes me sick anyway

    I drink very little, maybe 3 or 4 glasses of wine a year.

    But i use bottles of the stuff in cooking, does that count?

    Last time i was drunk was over 30 years ago, i (don't) remember it well but vowed never to get into that state again

    Sobriety.
    It means different things to me.
    Sober means: not drunk, clearheaded.
    So, after one drink I am still clearheaded, but sometimes (it seems) my alter ego appears after a sip of alcohol and some people (it seems) believe me to be drunk.
    Sober also means not drinking anything at any time. That is me presently.
    But, it seems the question here means 'how often are we not under the influence of alcohol?'. Absolutely most of the time for me.
    It doesn't take any alcohol to make me appear catty (I am thinking of you @Deeje).
    My opinion is that I only appear that way so I looked it up and oh dear! I am happy I have never been called that (catty). Anyway, what I am when a sip of alcohol puts me at it or someone's post puts me at it is Acerbic.
    I am usually quiet and friendly until I am not and it isn't alcohol that does it.

    I've now gone on a drinking binge for my drunk stupor to ease my pain.

    It's a heartache
    Nothing but a heartache
    Hits me when it's too late
    Hits me when I'm down
    It's a fool's game
    Nothing but a fool's game
    Standing in the cold rain
    Feeling like a clown
    It's a heartache
    Nothing but a heartache
    Love her till my arms break
    Then she'll let me down
    It ain't right with love to share
    When I've found she doesn't care for me. It ain't wise to need someone
    As much as I depended on her.
