chemo has stripped me of some options. basically, what i have left are sweet tea with lemon, milk and chocolate milk. now, i do love milk, but this affair has turned torrid ...

Well, the poll was done by someone, who has fairly alien drinking habits, to what I would consider a benchmark: a healthy approach to look for best quality at reasonable price.
First of all - coffee is not only for who rises early, coffee is for everybody, and in my case, being an Italian by adoption, I drink coffee every day - usually nespresso ristretto, unless I go out. I also drink some green tea, when I want something warm, and have had too much coffee during the day.
Secondarily - bottled spring water, or for those more thrifty - filtered tap water, is quite a basic requirement when you are thirsty or do sports. I drink some regularly, when I feel I should.
Third, the hugely macroscopic and absolutely unforgivable omission, has been table wine - you don't need Grand Cru Classe', a good "normal" bottle of red, rose' or white is on my dinner table everyday ( except the days I do my dieting). This is a most basic fact of life for the Mediterranean people. You can get a reasonably good wine of any colour between 5 and 10 euro a bottle here.
Finally - the high spirits - this is normally limited to winter time, as in the summer you don't really feel the urge. As I virtually live in France, and have personally met very nice Cognac producers, I simply resort to ordering a few bottles for the winter season, and on the weekends perhaps round off the day with half a finger of this golden stuff.

For Italians, coffee is a religion:

I never drink alcohol, but I drink incredible quantities of strong black tea.

Ripper: …as human beings, you and I need fresh, pure water to replenish our precious bodily fluids.

Mandrake: Yes…

Ripper: Are you beginning to understand?

Mandrake: [laughs, uncomfortably] Yes.

Ripper: Mandrake… Mandrake, have you ever wondered why I drink only distilled water, or rain water, and only pure grain alcohol?

Mandrake: Well, it did occur to me, Jack, yes…

Ah yes--need to update the poll to include some good bourbons--like Booker's or Bakers or Van Winkle--what the heck--even Knob Creek would be OK...

Hmmm. Well, I'll drink anything.

I am most partial to water. When I booze, it is whisky.

Before dinner:
Late spring thru early fall --> Beer. Either a good English ale or a microbrew.
IPA has been a choice of late

late fall thru early spring --> Dr. J Daniels Tenessee sipping medicine.

With dinner:
I normally prefer a wine. Nothing over $15.00 normally; just a decent table wine. Some of those boxes are extremely good value.

Where's the Kool Aid option? Not my cup of tea but know many that drank it.

Depends on the season and how I feel. Gin and rum in the summer and sherry and brandy in the cold months. Often a glass of wine with friends.

No more alcoholic beverages for me. Not that I drank a lot. I may have averaged 1 to 2 drinks a month. I can live with that. The thing that I will have a hard time doing without is coffee. No more caffeine for me either. All this due to a health issue I was probably born with.

Bourbon and rye are my favorite domestic poisons.
Right now I have a few sips left of Woodford Reserve Double Oak and most of a bottle of Willett 4yr Rye.

I love most bourbon though. Not that new "bourbon" that some folks say is bourbon though is distilled in the northeast or New England. Bourbon is made in Kentucky. Everything else is whiskey. (That rant is aimed at Hudson Distillery in spite of their good products, it's still not bourbon.)

I'm particular about rye since some distilleries get very creative with their blends and they can get way too peppery but that's just my palate.

Love the Islays, Speysides and Highlands in scotch.

Good tequila is always a friend of mine.

When I feel punchy, like I can take on a 220lb rugby forward from New Zealand, I drink mezcal. That worm is not your friend. And that is not a waterbed, it is the incoming tide of the Pacific Ocean.

I love spirits like brennivin, from Iceland or Scandinavia and Zhumir, from Ecuador. Zhumir with a bit of black tea muddled with star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar is amazing.

Beer is good so long as it doesn't have fruit or spices in it. No potpourri or pumpkin pie or patchouli or whatever esoteric crap someone decided would taste good fermented. If I want fermented spices, I'll get kimchi.

Wine... not so much. Wine and I have a few stories to tell from a period beginning late in 1999 and ending in May of 2000. We haven't gotten along since though I'll be polite if it's served.

I religiously drink coffee, every morning. If I need to write, I'll have a cup of Turkish at 2am then bang out 15 pages.

Orange juice, as much as I can afford.

Water. Gotta keep hydrated I guess.

I just sold a Zenit SLR w/lens for a very slight profit - I'm now celebrating with an Imperial Stout from the Sprecher Brewing Co.

I see that I just posted #169 above fairly recently.

Tonight, Scotch. Then when that was empty, a wee bit of Stoly Jalapeño and a splash of Bakon Vodka on the rocks.

Almost a teetotaler untill at 39 I married a Canuck. When we went to visit her relatives across the border you just about had to have a beer to be sociable. Well, one thing lead to another and now (after 25 years) I like beer. But I'm cheap and that's a problem. Got to shop carefully. For desert I like Stockyard Oatmeal stout from Trader Joe's, only $5.99 for a 6 pack. When it gets too warm I like a really cold and hoppy IPA, like Pyramid Outburst. The missus and her clan refer to 4:30 as beer thirty and when we head up to Canada we always bring 2 cases, the maxium allowed for two people.

Sir, with all do respect and my crazy math skills - at age 64, your beer needs to cost more that $1.00 per bottle

I don't discriminate.

I sell wine & spirits so I have a bit of everything throughout the week. As part of my job I taste at least 20 wines a week. I have a big rack of reds but I only drink it occasionally. I always have some white or sparkling in the fridge. I also have a growler of some craft beer in the fridge as well. When I'm at the pub I usually have a beer and maybe a dram of Powers.

However, when I want to sit and really enjoy myself I tend to go with the more flavorsome spirits like the various Ardbeg single malts and single village Mezcals. Those really do it for me. Everything else is a bit more utilitarian.
