    Sheesh... some softies here 555.

    I'm with Bacon and DP

    I drink just about every night. 2 or 3 5% @ 330ml.

    Tuesday is pool (8 ball) night with a small puff of ganja which seems to help my concentration and shot placement. I'm honestly off my game most times if I don't.

    Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays usually at the RSA until membership draw is done, on average 3 750ml 4%.

    Some nights, not often, I won't have any.

    Surprisingly now that I'm in Ban Yanang I've so far had 1 620ml 5.5% Chang a day with lunch.

    Saturday night in BKK I started slow, 1 Chang stubbie to my companions 4 San Mig Lights. I progressed the evening to around 10 Changs and 4 or 5 shots... I'm sure those Chang stubbies are short on vlomue.. I jusm cho geck sha.. fij.

    The UK recently revised alcohol consumption guidlines. I've not looked at them in detail but the main point seems to be that women and men now have the same limit - 14 units per week.

    https://www.drinkaware.co.uk/check-t...nit-guidelines

    In terms of my consumption. Post xmas I've had 1 drinking day and that was only 2 pints in my local. Otherwise I've been trying not to drink at all. Feels great tbh and my wallet feels a bit heavier (virtually ).

    Although I drink a lot when drinking I know when to go home.....actually I usually want to go home!
    As I mentioned I was at a biz conference...... 2 of the guys I was with never wanted to go home!! 555
    I left them 3 nights in a row both stumbling around.

    Same with me... generally drink maybe once a month.. and then on holidays... now we know even small quantities of alcohol increases the risk of cancer... they'll have warning labels on beer soon same same cigarettes... how long before we are suing Smirnoff... 55

    Being a shift worker and working some weekends my days off vary and so my drinking days are not the same each week. I can binge drink on a tuesday one week and a saturday the next. I don't usually touch shorts but i enjoy strong beers.

    My new years resolution is to cut my alcohol consumption at least by 1/2 for health and financial gains.

    I'm 60 in September and although I will be an older father I want to be around as long as I can for our new arrival.

    There are many things I want to tell her and plant the seeds of an enquiring mind like I did with my son and daughter.

    I tried doing Dry January lasted 10 days, already had a good 7 hour binge down the pub. Drinking varies depending on shift at work etc. But i do enjoy sitting in the pub and drinking 10 pints. But normally it would be 3 - 5 pints a day 3-5 times a week.

    Even drinking a tiny bit of alcohol can cause cancer - The Independent

    If a "Tiny bit" of alcohol can cause cancer there isn't much hope of avoiding your fate is there?
    All the latest crop of "Government Infomercials" are pushing the alcohol cancer line now.
    I guess it's just flavour of the month, like when were all going to get aids and die in a bowling alley.
    What I don't get is why wait til we are all swimming in a sea of the stuff and then tell us that knowledge?

    What they don't tell you is you can get cancer anyway. Just breathe in the wrong fumes, eat something that's been treated with the wrong chemicals, get irradiated by a phone tower...and on it goes.
    It's a new kind of "Blame game" is all.

    I don't get hangovers and I'm a veteran.
    Started drinking regularly at 14 when I had my own money from working (after I paid war widow Mum for board and keep)

    So at 73 I have a drinking problem - once a week when the girls are out working and there's no-one to go and restock!

    Standard drinks - Phooie - I've never been anything "standard" in my life.

    (though I'm ashamed to admit though I once owned a Standard 10 with a Lukey muffler - I had to get to work and Uni and I was saving for an Austin Healey 100M - fkn beautiful bit of machinery that Healey was).

    Probably the same view we had of smoking in the 1950s... before we knew better?

    We are learning more and more that cancer is mostly environmental... so more under our control than we think... and palming it off as part of the blame game is just an ostrich view of cancer in my opinion... will be interesting to see if cancer is still a major killer in a 100 years time...

    A lot of people see alcohol as a problem. But I think they're looking at it from the wrong perspective. Chemically speaking, alcohol is a solution.

    As my old mate Phil of the Octopus Bar used to say - "If they told me tomorrow I had cancer and six months to live I'd go out and get AIDS - they reckon that takes 5 years to kill you!"
    He died in his sleep of cardiac failure.

    So how the Fck are you going to know DP?

    You'll be dead from over-running your allotted mileage - and under-utilizing your relationship quota.

    It is kinda getting to the point now with all the mixed messages on food, alcohol, lifestyle etc that some people are afraid to live their life to the full..I've had about 10 different life circles so far in mine so if I drop dead tomorrow there is not much that I didn't do that I would regret...can't even think of one atm

    ^^^ When it comes to life, quality over quantity would be the way to go. a good balance of both would be nice though.

    I would expect a contrary view from you....

    I don't this compares with smoking in the 1950's just more socal engineering.
    How many times have you heard that a glass of red wine is good for you? (But now unfortunately you are gong to get cancer and die because its got a tiny bit of alcohol in it).

    Do you really think it does any good at all telling people something like "A tiny bit" of alcohol will give you cancer? A tiny bit of chromium in your vitamin pill will also give you cancer. A tiny bit of asbestos will give you cancer.

    Of course cancer is "Environmental" its also a "Lifestyle" disease.
    Some people however can live a risky lifestyle and never get cancer.
    What about the quantity of alcohol they consumed?

    Honestly I think they would be better off pushing "Moderation" instead of touting total abstinence. Why not concentrate on getting better at genetic screening to cut the risk?
