When you guys/gals get home from work/school, do you usually grab an alcoholic drink to relax for the evening.

Not these days.  High end of normal triglycerides count in the spring has me on Friday night only now.   Sad

I TRY and only drink 2 nights a week. (though I usually get hammered on both)

I usually end up coming home from regular work @ 1730, and going to help my wife run our pub. 

Most days, there is enough work to keep me busy, so I don't drink...others, during slow nights, I might drink 3-4 beers to keep me occupied.  Tonight, we have darts, so the drinking has begun in ernest.

BTW, for some reason, I never drink @ home.

Not usually when I get home, there's still to much to do at that point. I'm more likely to have a drink around 9pm.

I never drink when I get home. However I almost always have at least one pint later on in the evening.

You own a pub?  If you don't mind, I have a few questions for you.  

Has your state/municipality passed non-smoking legislation?

If no, how do you feel about such legislation?

If yes, has it hurt your business?

I quit smoking a few years ago, but when I smoked, like most smokers, I usually indulged a little more when I was drinking.  I sympathize with pub owners because it seems smoking is part of the pub culture.  On the other hand, it sure is more pleasant to go out for a beer and not come home smelling like an ashtray.

Some studies are showing the business is starting to increase in places where smoking has been banned.

Rarely grab a drink when I get home, of course since I am home most of the time, a 6AM drink might not bode well for the rest of the day...

Friday and Saturday nights are usually my drinking nights. Often when I get home, I check to see what dinner is before deciding whether to drink or what to drink. Some things go great with beer, some things with wine, some with a martini, etc.
Some things go great with Coke or Iced tea, too.

It just passed, and will be affective 9/2007

If no, how do you feel about such legislation?
I think it sucks

If yes, has it hurt your business?
All of the research I have done, if correct, means I will be out of business before the "cycle" of smoking drinkers return.

I quit smoking a few years ago, but when I smoked, like most smokers, I usually indulged a little more when I was drinking.  I sympathize with pub owners because it seems smoking is part of the pub culture.  On the other hand, it sure is more pleasant to go out for a beer and not come home smelling like an ashtray.

Some studies are showing the business is starting to increase in places where smoking has been banned.
Again, the research I have done shows that also.  But, we are a semi-new business, we inherited a *feces* load of debt when we "acquired" our place.  I put a ton of of money into the place for the "previous" owner, and I could not sustain a loss of business for any period of time right now.  And with talking to other bar owners, neither could they.

Kinda like JD, no.  I rush from my desk when my wife calls to tell me that she's heading upstairs to start the bath for our little one.  I race home, join the bath, the apres bath play and the putting-down.

Actually, I realize that I essentially don't drink at home.  My wife and I may split the occasional beer, but I'd guess I have something alcoholic at home maybe twice a month.

I almost never drink.  Never really acquired a taste for it, and never really had reason to drink socially.

Yes. Sad

We just moved to a new house a few months ago.  In our old house, I occasionally grabbed a drink upon getting home, but not very often.  But in the new house, my commute became much longer and more stressful, and I find myself reaching for a drink as soon as I get home.

That's grim.  I need to find a new job. Angry
