It doesn't matter where you hang your hat, wherever you live, it’s crazy expensive to go to a bar and get a drink. With happy hours across the country growing shorter and shorter, it's no wonder that people are starting to prefer drinking at home. Who cares if it makes you seem like a total lush, wouldn't you like to drink without going bankrupt? Think about drinking at home like an investment in a future where you have more money, and a slightly nagging headache.

Even if your local bar is affordable, do they have pizza rolls? Do they have Hot Pockets? And if they do, are they your favorite flavor? Fried pizza pockets is just one of the reasons that you should stay home and drink instead of going out. Pour yourself your double of your favorite alcoholic drink and enjoy this list of the best reasons to drink at home.

Even if your friends insist that drinking at home is kind of sad, there are plenty of awesome reasons to hang out in your apartment and sip on syrup (although, you actually shouldn't drink syrup – that will kill you). Whether you’re drinking at home because you’re trying to save some money or because you’re avoiding the fact that you’re dealing with some deep-seated emotional issues, these best reasons for you to drink at home will make you feel even better for what you were probably already going to do.

Vote up the best reasons to drink at home, and if you have a reason to drink (alcohol, not juice, wink!) at home that isn't listed, be sure to add it for other home drinkers to vote on.
