Are you consuming more alcohol since the pandemic began?

According to a recent study by the RAND Corporation and supported by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), Americans are consuming more alcohol since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Grocery stores and online retailers have seen a dramatic jump in alcohol sales. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Are you buying and consuming more alcohol now than you were pre-pandemic?

Please tell us in the poll below, and be patient if it takes a moment to load. Remember, we can’t see how anybody answers our polls, so no judgment from us. Cheers!

Don’t drink, did that in my military years. But, love the stuff to cook with adds that great flavor and for a great demi glaze over chicken or beef. Cheap booze in NH we building liquor stores on every street corner like Walgreens “Live free or Drink”.

I finished what I had on hand (less than a bottle) and haven’t considered a trip to the liquor store an essential activity.

As my Dad used to say:
“I don’t drink anymore”
“I don’t drink any less either”! 🙂

I don’t drink alcohol, but if I did, I probably would have voted on about the same. We are workcampers and haven’t missed any work. The campground we are working at has set new highs for occupancy, site rental income, and sales in the store and snack bar. And a note on the site fees, they weren’t raised this year, they are the same as 2019.

It’s been 2 weeks since I have seen the poll.
I am not drinking anymore than before.

I checked “I don’t drink” only because I probably drink less that a dozen alcoholic drinks in a year.

So you have had about 9 drinks this year and “I don’t drink”??? Man, Judge Judy would fry you for not answering the question properly.

Although we occasionally have a cocktail at home, most times we have a cocktail before dinner when eating out at restaurants. Since eating out at restaurants has been not possible or less likely, we’re therefore consuming less alcohol.
