    HOW MANY DRINKS A DAY IS TOO MANY DRINKS A DAY?

    I like to polish of 2 or 3 brews a day. Usually after I'm done working in the yard after 5pm. I enjoy them. Am I considered an alcoholic? *hic*

    It will put the weight on!
    Determining whether or not someone is an alcoholic is not a matter of a simple formula; someone could have one drink a day and be an alcoholic, while someone else could drink six glasses of wine in an evening and not be considered an alcoholic. Alcoholism is a very complex disease, and a diagnosis of alcoholism relies on several symptoms and factors which are considered together, ranging from a genetic predisposition to alcoholism to the drinking habits of the patient. If you are concerned that someone you know may be developing an alcohol dependence, you should be aware that many people with alcohol abuse and dependence issues are in denial, so you should approach this person carefully about the issue.

    My wife and I have a drink (either beer or wine) mostly everyday. Today I had two for lunch at a Thai resturant and then ONE brew when we got home around 4pm.

    Nothing since.

    TSC, why am I thinking you're about as concerned about drinking as you are about repenting? ;)

    Unless you, your wife or your doctor has an issue with the amount you drink, don't worry about it. Cheers! [~]D
    I would say thats fine although I don't drink. If a person spends hours a day in a bar more than likely has a problem. The guy in the cartoon has a problem.....lol
    No, you are not an alcoholic unless you can't do without them if you choose to give drinking a miss sometimes.

    Whether it's affecting your health depends on the units you drink.

    The suggested safe limit is 21 per week for men and 14 for women.

    TWENTY ONE A WEEK? Where did you get your stats from? I like those stats.

    A unit isn't a pint of beer :-)

    One small glass of wine = one unit.

    Whatever you drink, check the bottle or can... you might find the units listed.

    I shall give you TU for making me giggle... sorry.
    i thank one is to many for me.

    It's a choice :-)

    it's already too much if you're asking this.

    More than 12 beers a day is not a good sign. AA should be in your future. Mondays I usually pound a few, 10-12 beers. I spend most weekends at the track so no drinking after Thursday. Fast cars and booze never mix.

    10-12? WOW, and I thought I drank too much.
    I have to admit when I go out to watch NFL football on Sundays I drink about that much but only once a week during the season.
    CAN'T WAIT TILL KICK-OFF
    Sorry it took so long to reply, I was out drinking.

    cheers
