I don't drink at all.
I don't use marijuana at all.
I don't use tobacco products at all.
I drink occassionally - average 3 or less drinks per week.
I reguarly drink in moderation - average of 1 to 3 drinks a day.
I am a heavy drinker - average of 4 to 8 drinks a day.
I am a very heavy drinker - average of more than 9 drinks a day.
I rarely smoke marijuana and then only if someone else buys it.
I smoke marijuana often and purchase or grow it myself.
I use tobacco products.
Lately, I only drink about 1-3 drinks a year, but that's mainly due to being either pregnant or nursing for a huge portion of the last 3 years. Before that, it was probably about 1-3 drinks a month. I'll might go back to where I was, depending on where my husband gets stationed, and if I get to go out more often there.
I've never smoked anything. Never will.

I answered the poll but didn't post my specifics.
I would NEVER smoke cigarettes. Ewwwwwwwww. (We all know how much I hate smoking.)
I smoked marijuana about 30 years ago--two times. I have never done it again.
I drink beer and wine only. I have usually 1 beer a week (although I have had two in the last week ) and I drink wine at least once a week but usually not more than 2 times.
I don't smoke, but I once did back in my club days. I used to smoke pot but haven't in over twenty years.
I drink a glass of wine or two here and there, the rare mixed drink or beer.
One to two drinks a day is medically classified as moderate drinking. In fact, in a health assessment, so long as you don't consume more than 2 drinks a day, it does not even score against your overall health assessment.

As far as your poll, it would have been quite easy to say 1-6 drinks a week as your light drinking category. No biggie, but many, if not most, people drink 1-6 drinks a week, and don't drink daily.
I drink moderately (a few times a week)
I use tobacco regularly
I smoke pot daily
Tobacco is the one I'd like to cut out.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

My drinking while heavy in the past is now sporadic, and social, usually as part of a meal, I drink for the taste rather than the buzz. A nice wine or well paired beer with a meal is sheer bliss, I also enjoy the flavor of a nice scotch, so I will occasionally indulge there. all of these pleasures are done sporadically, and in moderation though. I would say less than 10 drinks a month, so essentially I am a non drinker.
Pot smoking- used to do this heavily as well, this was my drug of choice, alcohol as secondary, and when I smoked I rarely drank. I grew my own for a long time (I did not want to support criminals with my recreational drug choice). I could count the times I have smoked pot in the last 3 years on one hand. I see nothing wrong with getting high sporadically (or moderate, responsible use of anything) other than the inadvertent support of a black market, and the violence/corruption and side effects inherent in that, I despise this. So again essentially a non pot smoker.
Other drugs. been there done that - distant past, seen lives near and dear to me ruined (and ended) by them, either directly or indirectly - events and circumstances have solidified my hatred of the black market, and my conviction that the "War on Drugs" is compounding an already horrible situation and problem by allowing an unchecked black market to thrive, and creating an environment where those with problems fear the legal repercussions too much to get the help they need.
