how many in your social circle are "woo hoo!!" drinkers?

Back in our days of youth, my friends and I used to have a few drinks on some weekends and the obligatory (and fun) holiday parties but (and fortunately) never overkill to the point of falling down drunk. I did see and understand the larger circle of friends and/or acquaintances who were more excessive in that regard and all the difficulties and dramas which were the inevitable fallout in their lives because of it, so...no it was never an enticement at all.

I wasn't raised around alcohol (not for any particular reason) so it was not a culture that was familiar to me nor an entrenched practice/behavior. I think that was a very good thing because I do know of one or two acquaintances who many refer to as a 'functional drunk' (perhaps that is the pc way of saying an alcoholic, because they are, imo) but they are a burden to their friends so much so that I do not participate in their functions; mainly because I am so anxious, apprehensive and afraid for them and their families.

Apologies for the back story but to answer the op...no, none of my circle of friends are "woo hoo!!" drinkers, and for that I am appreciative and grateful.

You can do the Pitbull and Havana Brown 'Party Party Drink All Night Sleep All Day and Do It Again'
thing for a little while, but eventually the liver will protest and fail, if Officer Friendly don't get you with the DUI dragnet.

So as the Buddha advised, moderation in all things.

I don't hang out with frequent heavy drinkers anymore, but am a heavy drinker myself and have some family members and friends that I get woohoo levels with a few times a year. It used to be a few times a week, but as changed for reasons unrelated to drinking.

Definitely when we have a girls night out we can get a little wild. Doesn't happen too often, but fun when it does!

I never heard of "woo-hoo" drinkers until I saw this thread. I shun hard liquor. Haven't had a drop of that stuff in over 25 years. Nasty, nasty drug.
I will have an occasional beer (must be good, not the cheap commercial American stuff) but that's it.

I do not hang with drunks / people with alcohol problems.

I'm 47, and I'd have to agree with you. It is exponentially more silly 20 years later. I am a hop head/beer snob/home brewer and definitely enjoy alcohol (well, just beer,) and know many others who do too, but I don't know a single woo hoo drinker. If I did, I'd choose not to associate with them.

Okay, where did this term "Woo-Hoo drinker" come from? I'm not clear what it is.

Nothing in Urban Dictionary and Google came up empty.

Okay I tried Yahoo. Is it someone who drinks this?

Yuck.

Anyone seen the ads for 1800 Tequila starring Ray Liotta? That's the only kind of drinker I'm interested in hanging out with.
