  • Do you drink too much?

    Do you exceed the recommended daily alcohol allowance?

    In the UK this is 3-4 units per day for a male and 2-3 for a woman.

    A unit is usually measured as a 25ml (single) measure of spirit, or a half pint of cider or lager.

    I certainly well exceed this, I've pretty much stopped drinking at times when I'm not going out socialising, such as drinking on an evening with a meal or whatever, but it's very easy to pass the recommendation when you're going out 2-3 times a week (and working in a bar a further 2 nights a week!)

    I'm what is known as a binger, I won't drink a massive amount at home, with meals etc, but when I go for a night out, nine times out of ten (if not 10/10) I will EASILY exceed the limit and get totally ratted..

        Definitely not lol - I've such a quiet existance. I detest the whole bar/club scene as does the Mrs, so we're inclined to a bottle of wine or two a week - usually one glass a night. So very civilised!

          I'll only drink alcohol 3 times a year at clubs. Once, out with my friends for my birthday, and once at the end of each semester at uni.

          These times that I do drink, I consume large quantities. Heavy binge drinking session. But majority of these drinks are shots. But if it isn't these times, I'm perfectly fine not drinking. I never drink at home, and never have a drink casually. And other times, I'm content with going out to clubs, or dinners, sober.

          It's a taste thing. I don't like the taste of wine. Champagne, it depends whether it's the cheap stuff or not. I've had some shocking champagne. I'll drink beer or shots.

            Apart from the odd drink, I only drink at Parties, and enjoy it, but then regret it the next morning!

            I'm not legally old enough to drink yet though, so I guess I do drink too much!

              Only when on a drinking night out, so usually once a week. I hardly ever drink at home apart from at Christmas and very occasionally a bottle of cider on a Saturday night. So overall I'd say my alcohol intake is pretty low compared to a lot of people.

                  When I go out - typically twice or three times a month, at the weekends; or daily when away on holidays - I definitely exceed the safe limits.

                  Binge drinking is what they call it!

                        I don't like alcohol at all. When i'm out with my firends i'm the only one who doesn't drink.

                        It's a bit embarassing

                              I hate it. I don't drink alcohol at all... I think I never drank an entire bottle of beer in my entire life or a full glass of wine...


                              @Crazy4Brit Don't worry My friends kind of like that I don't drink as someone needs to carry them home

                                  Is it strange? I never drink alcohol. I hardly drink sodas or any other can product for that matter. I usually drink water, fruit juice and milk.

                                                I do find it a bit strange when young people don't drink cos we're seen as such a binge drinking culture at the moment, you don't realise there are so many who don't bother or drink lightly.

                                                I could never give it up for good, I enjoy drinking and the feeling of being drunk far too much.
