Default 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?

2-3 a day will just ruin your face as you get older, and slowly rot you inside, but you're giving your body some time to recover. With 20-25 a night once a week, you're bound to end up liver-less before the year's up. In fact the hospital you'll regularly attend will put an end to your drinking.

Drinking isn't good at all, IMO. Alcohol harms your skin and makes people look older faster. With that being said, the second option is most definitely less healthy.

2-3 drinks, once a week. Not every week though.

That should satisfy the social needs.

Well, alcohol lowers inhibitions, but the thing is, it detaches a person from the sex, at least more so in comparison to someone who is sober. Alcohol can provoke an increase sexual desire and make a person significantly more relaxed during sex............but it a depressant drug. You're not fully involved in the experience when you've been drinking, which inherently takes away from the sexual encounter.

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

Now, if we are going to talk about sociability and the like, we obviously need to discuss what type of drinks one would be partaking in. Because if it's beer, that's a big no-no. But a trendy, upscale.............yes, let me say it, a classic, fruity, gay drink, will make even the douchiest of douche drunks look classy. Now, that wouldn't make drinking 20-25 of those drinks a week healthy, but 2-3 at the bar at night per say......and straight guys will have ladies jumping all over them! So I think the choice is very easy to make here.

2-3 drinks a day is sad, because it means you drink alone. That said, there was a time where I drank a triple Bacardi and lime (yuck!) nightly for about a year.

The only reason I like partying is alcohol. Alcohol and me are best buds, until it shuts off the lights, then it's not being so much of a bro.

I don't really drink much if at all, really.

How many drinks in a week? I'm gonna need to use a decimal on this one.

Let's just say less than one. As for the thread, 2-3 drinks a week ought to suffice, as Arsen pointed out.

a bottle of rum every night keeps the doctor away.....

i barely ever tasted alcoholic drinks.....so i wouldn't know much.....i prefer to stay healthy, young and fit.....be a vegetarian and eat a lot of onion and leafy vegetables.....onion improves sexual performance.....

i heard that a pint of top notch red wine every 3 days also improves sex life and keeps people in top condition......moderate drinking is good but most people end up becoming heavy drinkers.....
