not difficult at all, even if you have time for recuperation, that much drinking can be extremely dangerous and life threatening. a night with 25 drinks you might pass out and never wake up. bit of an extreme # to use. 2-3 drinks a day is much more common

As long as you drink a glass of water afterwards the same amount of water to cancel it out afterwards both scenarios are fine.

Oh and boogers are also helpful.

Not if you build a tollerance.

I used to be a lightweight when I started, like everyone. If I drank fast, even only 4-5 drinks could make me silly.

There is not a time when I drink now when I dont have at least 15 drinks. I had 22-24 standard drinks or thereabouts just like a week and a half ago. Over the course of say 10-11 hours. Sure I vommited and that, and eventually went to sleep that night, but no chance of me dieing.

If you practice all the time, your tollerance goes up pretty much every time.

Even people who do die, is usually vommiting in your sleep and essentially asphyxiating yourself with vommit. Thats just what you have to watch really.

Despite what people will have you believe, it is very very difficult to kill yourself with alcohol - that being alcohol being the sole cause of your death and not some secondary factor like driving or choking on vommit/death by misadventure etc.

I used to drink 3 4 drinks a day for around 4 5 days a week for around 6 months or so. its all good as long as you enjoy it. No good if you are drinking to sulk. Me thinks.

Both options are the healthiest. Anyone that doesn't agree are blatant trolls.

Re: Whats worse, 2-3 drinks a day, or 20-25 alcoholic drinks in one night once a week

some minimal alcohol over lunch and a few drinks when out in town is alright. day drinking, drinking each day even small amounts or getting wasted at night is not good.

Why not? Because of arbitrary rules imposed on us by society? There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a drink everyday or drinking alone or whatever else someone might disapprove of. Use common sense, don't allow drinking to control your life and you will be fine.

no I didnt mean any of that society bs, just there is I think a limit average person should not cross in order not to generate any risk of having negative effects of alcohol usage. in another words, 'not allowing drinking to control your life' means not drink too much or too often, thats all. I really dont give two fucks about imposed arbitrary rules. there are people who get wasted every day and it doesnt do them any harm but they are exceptions.

Re: Whats worse, 2-3 drinks a day, or 20-25 alcoholic drinks in one night once a week

a pint of wine every three days is the max limit of what can be called moderate drinking.....best taken with food.....i say 3 days because a small glass of it each day will never be enough and you end up drinking almost 2 pints in 3 days which is not desired.....so best to have a full pint of it slowly with a good meal once every three days.....i avoid social drinking and never drink when somebody asks me to, i drink only when i feel like drinking.....i agree that it's just bullshit to drink just for the heck that you happen to be in a social gathering.....

Anyone that consumes 20 - 25 drinks a night on a regular basis has a problem. Even if its once a week!
