So the Mrs tells me I drink too much.
Interested to see what everybody else drinks per week
Average 4/6 cans a day.
How much is in one can? Half a liter?
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.
