I used to only drink the hard stuff, but I do so a little less frequently now. It's a different kind of drunk, I find that beer makes me cheery, rosie, energetic, happy, outgoing.
Where hard stuff makes me feel invincible, really arrogant, really confident, irritable, and horrendously uncoordinated.
