Whats worse, 2-3 drinks a day, or 20-25 alcoholic drinks in one night once a week?
Most of the healthy drinking guide lines suggest for a male, no more than 3 units a day, which I guess is reasonable.
I often wondered though, many people like a glass or two with dinner, but some like myself prefer to "save" their drinks for the purposes of getting quite intoxicated once or twice a week.
In essence, what im asking, is whats worse, having a few units a night on average, and getting tipsy every night, or just getting drunk once a week.
This is a question thats never been seriously answered by any research.
On the one scenario, you are never getting smahsed, never drinking so much you pass out or spew.
On the other, you are hammering your organs and body, till the point you will often spew (actually good, you might get some booze out of your system before it goes into the bloodstream), but your only doing it once to twice a week, giving your liver/kidneys/heart/other organs total off days to recover and regenerate.
I just dont know.
There are two types of drinkers. Though often the type I am might have a few drinks a night anyway and still get hammered once a week still, though I tend to abstain during the week cause I know I will be drinking a lot in the weekend or whatever day I drink.
Whats your feelings?
Alcohol is techincally a posion, though some studies have suggested small amounts may be good for the heart, though if u take it in 20 doses at once, im not sure if you get the benefits.
What do you think?
