    the question for me is more like...how much do u drink a year?
    Agreed, cos i think theres a few of us who dont drink every week, but drink a fair bit when they do go out... I'd hate to think how much it'd be over a whole year tho =S

    It's subjectve.

    Most weeks none, some weeks a lot. Depends what's on sale.
    Hmm...Its certainly very variable. I the last 7 days, at least 25 and its height of exams! 6 today.

    However, often there are weeks of zero...well not often but it does happen.

    Anything from none at all up to way more than 12. All depends on the week

    Surprising to see so many who don't touch it all. Fair play to all those with that sort of discipline.

    That's because they spend far too much time on here and not nearly enough out 'there.'

    Although you have to remember that its all the other ones added up to get the total number of drinkers...

    Last Saturday I drank half a bottle of Jim Beam (28 units for the bottle, so 14 units) before going out. In the bar I had another 4 pints. And then in the club had at least 2 - 3 more pints.

    Not sure how many units 1 pint is though.

    Edit, just found out:

    Pint of standard lager - 2.3 units

    so thats 14 + (2.3x6) = 27.6 Units total

    But I only drink heavily once or twice a week.

    Weak beer (e.g. carlsberg) is 2 units, something a bit stronger like Kronenbourg is more like 3.

    Government unit guidance limits are completely fabricated however, and have steadily decreased over the years along with political pressure upon them to do so.

    Depends. If I'm at a few parties and stuff then it'll be quite a bit.
    If not then just a couple of cans probably.

    Errm probably in the region of 35-40.. Something like that.
    A couple of nights where I have around 7-8 pints and then most other nights I'll just have a pint or two with dinner or vegging in front of the tv or whatever.

    But that will change next year.
