Not until I was 18 and in college, and I've still never been much of a drinker. At most, I'll have two to three drinks while hanging out with friends - usually I'll only have one. I don't drink and go out to big parties, I don't drink with the goal of getting extremely drunk... I'm generally just not big on the experience of getting truly wasted. Mixing cocktails is fun, though, and I'm from an area known for excellent wine and microbrews, so I'm glad to have finally developed a moderate taste for alcohol.
