    My missus seems to think Im becoming an alcoholic because I drink 1-3 glasses of beer a night. Ive tried telling her thats normal for a lot of guys I know and often they drink more but shes not buying it. So I decided to do a poll so I can prove it to her.
    Please don't fudge your figures just so I can prove a point. I am really interested to know how much beer you drink per night.

    Edit: To change poll choices slightly.

    Edit: Again to change stubbies to glasses. We will assume a glass is 330ml worth so equal to one stubbie..

    Not the same every night, sometimes none, most nights 1 or two, more on the weekends, let's just call it "several".

    For me it varies night to night there might be a lot of nights where i have none. Then after footy I usually have 2, then on the weekend who knows when i stop but again some weekends i might not drink at all.
    I thought I would start to drink more once i got kegs but this hasn't been the case, just more of my mates come over and drink for free.
    Cheers Stu

    NSW Health suggests no more than 2 a day on average.
    http://www.health.gov.au/internet/alcohol/...ent/guide-adult

    I don't drink through the week generally, just weekends and no more than 4 on any night.
    But it hasn't always been that low.

    Whatever works for you isn't it. Plus how dependant you are perhaps, no harm in taking a break once in a while.
    Let the liver come up for some air.

    Well im on Uni holidays at the moment, so Ill easily drink 3-5 pints. However, I don't drink every night either, perhaps only 3-5 nights a week.

    When Im back at uni/work Usually only drink on weekends, or if I make pizza during the week :)

    Generally depends on my schedule/if I'm sick of having something to drink. Generally tends to be a couple of nights a week where I have nothing or maybe one beer due to gigs being late (I always drive to the gigs I play). Other than that I pretty much drink how ever much I want. Sometimes it's very sensible, other times it's too much. It's probably not the healthiest way of living, but I value quality of life over a few more years of being old and boring.

    I'm a very sporadic drinker. I'll go a month without drinking a single beer without even thinking about it. If I don't feel like one, I don't have one.

    From time to time on a week night I'll have between 1 and 4 schooners. Some times I just feel like it.

    If I'm actually drinking on purpose, like having a party or whatever, I'll drink a lot of beer.

    I try and keep it down to a longneck per night with dinner, but then again it depends on whats happening. Some nights will be more some will be nothing.

    I'll have 2-3 pints a night, but not every night, maybe 4 nights a week. Im trying to cut back a bit. My body type is the type where you look at a pie and gain weight, so i have to be careful about how much i drink and watch what i eat.

    You really should have 3 AFD's a week IMHO, and im not a doctor!.

    I switched from pints to middys recently, allows more trips to the kegerator

    0-4 middys per week night, avg probably 2, which is a pint :)

    ...

    middy = 285ml
    pint = 570ml

    Generally don't drink unless i have worked up an appetite for beer. Sometimes il have one a night for 3 or 4 nights then nothing for a week.
    Could be a long neck or a pint from the keg which i never usually fill up.

    Things that give me an appetite for beer - the obvious one of physical workload, helps me relax. After or during brewing always wets the appetite.
    I think there is a novelty factor with homebrew when you start producing decent beer that you enjoy, i guess for some this may level off or for some always be a novelty.
    I say homebrew is good for you even if you have one a night.

    Holy ****, i am only one of two voters who have said 6 a night.....think i'm probably the one with a problem.

    I am a pretty big bloke though, and all macho bullshit aside, it's not uncommon for me to knock off 9-12 on any given weeknight (tues, wed,thurs, really doesn't matter to me...) and then rock up for work ready to go the next morning.

    the only reason i chose 6, is because at the moment, my life is that hectic that work commitments are keeping me away from home a bit at night, therefore not allowing me to REGULARLY indulge like i was a few months ago. 6 is probably a fair average for me.

    4-6, 330ml refills per night on average. More if I'm entertaining friends.

    A lot of the time it's <4% beer. A while back I had a keg of IPA next to a keg of my Chimay Blue clone. I started getting hungover in the mornings.

    But that's over a period from around 4pm to 11 pm ... so most of that time I'd be below 0.05 and could probably drive a car.

    BTW - it's 4:09pm and I have a 200ml glass of Belgian Blonde in my sweaty hand as I type. Tastes like Wrigley's Juicyfruit gum.

    3 on average. Being a shift worker, I don't drink much when I'm working. I don't try to make up on my days off, but if I want to have 6 beers, then I will. I used to be your typical binge drinker - no beer for a week or 2, and then - bammo - get hammered for 2 days. Don't do that any more.
    Mrs LagerBomb is also a beer drinker, and we find it very therapeutic to sit down together after work and relax with a few beers and destress, chat etc. Maybe you can get you partner to enjoy a couple with you :party: ? It can lead to a great night sometimes " If you know what I mean"
    Cheers
