I think he quoted '4/6 a day' which I read as 2/3rds of a can a day. Not sure why Mr Rossi has a problem finishing his beer.

Apologies Henry 4-6

It's OK Mr Rossi. I'm just jealous that I couldn't hold down even a few cans on week days. Are you fat by any chance? If not, you've been blessed my boy.

Keep it FLAC. Say NO to variable bit rates.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink a week?

When forced to I can put in a fairly legendary sesh. However, I will admit to being all about the sly, underhand tactics to get through it eg:

*Having a quick glass of water at the bar when sent up to a buy a round.
*Snidey tipping of drinks into plantpots
*When someone gets a round in waiting for someone to order a bottle then saying "yeah I wouldn't mind one of those too" instead of having a pint. Yet it appears to not get noticed because someone else has gone for the bottle first and it's not like it's a shandy anyway.
*If there's a meal involved, ensuring I go for something ridiculously bread-heavy like a calzone and ensuring I have a coffee as well
*The occasional ostentatious display of generosity so no-one thinks I'm a lightweight or stingy bastard "Right, my round! Double JD and cokes" (except mine gets a single shot when I go to the bar)

It's all about being a snidey cunt and not being picked up for it.

To put things in perspective: the average amount of daily intake of alcohol deemed to be within healthy limits (or damaging at the minimum) in the longterm is about 3 units of alcohol for men en 2 units of alcohol for women.

For beer, a glass of 250ml would amount to one unit. For any spirits of, say vodka, brandy or whisky, a shot glass full would amount to about 1 unit.


I am not judging here at all rossi. I know all these facts all to well because I like to drink as well. Luckily I'm a lightweight that can't handle much but I try to keep things within the above guidelines as I want to stay healthy-ish in the longterm as well. On weekdays it's about 2 cans (330ml) a night and in weekend 3 cans on average per night. Working in healthcare for over 15 years now I've seen all sorts of longterm effects in many cases. But I am a user, be it in certain moderation. But i still have to make myself have two to three nights a week I don't drink. Otherwise I automatically do it every day.

Like I said; I can't take a lot and I also don't drink a lot per night, but it is still to regular. Some weeks I skip tow to three days during the week. Other weeks it's just the whole week of drinking every day.

It helps to leave the beer on the weeknights when I just vaporize some of my homegrown stash of pot. Because I do not mix the two. And I will not have any trouble getting to sleep. Because sleep is one thing I suck at big time.

Luckily those are my only two vices still left. Gave up smoking about six years ago now along with all the chemicals I used to be so fond of.

Liking your style.

Tip for not appearing stingy: always get the first round in. People always assume those who wait til the later rounds are trying to shirk their duty.


This doesn't apply if you're in a shit pub and it's happy hour. Tight wads make a massive deal of getting a round in during happy hour.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink a week?

Single life has made me a bit of an alcy. Getting properly drunk about 4 times a week... Mainly with co workers, poker and the random honeys for dinner. 4-5 gin & tonics, or whiskey waters sets me straight for  night.

Generally I skip drinks altogether, and enjoy the one j a day. Unless I'm hanging with the brother, usually means about 12 js a day.

Re: How much alcohol do you drink a week?

Usually everyday here for me. I'd say from 4 to 10 units a night. Is that bad? I might have one or two nights off a week nd just have l'eau.

I'm a slight bugger too (as some might well say)... no weight issues here ta. But never have had them... a good metabolism as they say. Would love some love handles tbf.

Got really ratted about a month ago (Birthday night out with mates who decided 'fun drinks' were to be had) though which meant I fell over backwards down some stairs on a bridge on my way home... hit my coxix, my shoulder, and my head. Could have been 'brown bread' as Smalls would say... lessons etc.... Only just recovered from it. Not funny at all. And I am one to take the piss out of myself pretty easily.

Stay safe guys.. dont get TOO pissed!

Beef Jerky Time!

Re: How much alcohol do you drink a week?

I went to the doctors earlier and had to fill out some questionnaire on alcohol consumption and it said a score of 5+ and your alcohol consumption is considered high and you should look to cut down, i drink fuck all and scored a 5, what do they consider excessive!

Re: How much alcohol do you drink a week?

Been drinking a fair bit in the space between finishing my course and getting a job. Most of the time it's either about 6 cans beer/Guinness or one and a half bottles of some form of red wine. Normally I limit it to the weekends, not on school nights.

Even so, I'm thinking about cutting it out for a little while. Few months maybe.

Christ, this post is exciting.

Likewise, so you can only imagine when I combine the two. wink

Don't drink too much these days, although over the past few weeks I've been out to see Nick Warren & Hernan Cattaneo, a wedding and spent time with my missus and her best mate, so getting pissed was in order.

Generally-speaking I'll usually have a pint or three after footie on Mondays at my local - which is a dangerous local due to it being just ten strides away.  Outside of that, I'll maybe have four bottles over the course of the week and maybe a glass or two of white zinfandel.
