I really don't understand these threads. All they seem to be for is so non drinkers tell drinkers that they are disgraceful, disgusting, bad parents and moral degenerates.

And for drinkers to tell non-drinkers that they're boring prudes.

Although, as I see it, most people are saying they don't drink to the point of vomiting and passing out. Which is kinda a good thing.

I still do it very occasionally.  About 18 months ago on my birthday I was pretty wasted - at a party in our own house (DS being babysat over night at his grandparents place).  DH probably does it once every six months on a blokes night out/bucks night, usually at friend's places/holiday houses.   Sometimes its good to have a bit of release when the rest of your life is so controlled by responsibilities.  We're pretty happy drunks though, so there have never been any incidents or negative consequences (apart from a hangover and possible liver damage!).

yep, that's the message I'm getting too.  Means most people have figured out when to slow down instead on powering on like they used to.  A few people have mentioned getting 'tipsy' or 'happy' but again, it means they recognise how much to drink to relax and enjoy themselves without writing themselves and dealing with the mother of all hangovers the next day.

I never did get blind drunk. I only got tipsy a handful of times. I'm boring.

Probably about 25ish. I still enjoy drinking and staying out late, but I just hit a wall with drinking where I get to a certain level of drunk and can't drink anymore until I've sobered up a bit. It's been many years since I've been at the stumbling around, slurring my words, the room is spinning level, vomit before I've even gotten home level of drunk (which is what I class as 'blind').
