    Can go weeks with out a drink and find at night i might have 1-2 tallies if i do. As for the weekends it depends if i really want to give it a nudge ill have 6 tallies and thats my normal limit. i like the odd wiskey or cocktail but very seldom do indulge in that.

    I believe every thing in moderation, if you feel like a drink have one, if your behaviour changes after one or feel you can't stop you might need to talk to some one. Life is short, you never know when you'll drop dead you may as well enjoy it.

    Smoking on the other hand for the AHBer whose grandfather lived to 80 smoking the pipe congrates mate you certainly are in the minority, i have lost too many people in my life directly linked to smoking and to those trying to stop all the best.

    I usually don't drink on week nights (trying to lose the beer gut)
    usually have a beer when i get home from work on a friday night, and maybe 6 or so on a saturday night with mates

    This thread is gay. I've decided to start a new thread "what's your bowel transit time" with a poll.
    Basically you have a nice USA style dinner with crumbed chicken, mashed potato and sweet corn then do a corn count over the next couple of days.
    Far more interesting :icon_cheers:

    I'll post a pic of the dinner tomorrow and results can start rolling in over the next few days B)
    I'm not sure if we should be posting pics of the results however - probably have to take those on trust.

    edit: should we do the corn at lunch or dinner?

    Or we can start one "Why has BribieG become so grumpy?"

    It seems of late you are not a happy chappy. Not having a crack but just noticed your posts are not as jovial and helpful as usual.

    .....Now, tell me about your mother! :p

    If you or someone else thinks you drink too much then chances are you do

    I drink far less now that I do 2-4 hours of hard exercise on Saturday mornings. I don't drink during the week, not on Friday nights because I exercise and then on Saturday nights I'm generally too tired to drink much anyhow, so generally a couple on Saturday then a couple on Sunday.

    So now I brew quality over quantity as one keg lasts about 2 months.

    BTW I like the idea of the corn poll...no pics though!

    Yeah. We all do....

    and just 'cause someone tells me i drink too much doesnt mean i drink too much. That just bullshit.

    If we beleived everything other people said without using our own brains the world would be a fucken dive....

    Rant over.

    EDIT: when someone says they drink 1-2 a night but have 3 or so days off beer and they get 'buzzed' by that quantity, i find that hard to believe. Opening a can of worms i know, but thats my opinion.
    In the same way that those that say that, also probably find it impossible to believe that big guys like me can honestly put away large amounts of beer without getting buzzed. Sometimes those people arent trying to be macho, they are teling the truth. I am deliberately leaving 'other' health problems generated by over consumption out of this.

    IMO, any drug that affects the relationships in your life or threatens to significantly shorten it is worth worrying about. A few beers to relax in the evenings? Meh.

    Some people's lives fall apart at the drop of a hat. Health authorities set guidelines like traffic authorities set speed limits - they're coddling those who are screw-ups and can't handle things. Just as I could easily sit on 180kph on the motorway safely (but don't) I appreciate that others are stopped from doing this. For most people, the sheer cost of alcohol is a deterrent to their drinking levels. With homebrewers, we don't have this - and that can open floodgates.

    People who let substances rule them are going to do it regardless. If they didn't have booze or drugs they'd be spinning around in the back yard.

    I knew a guy back in highschool who did an exchange thing with a kid in America. When they'd go to a party all the American kids would take a sixpack of 3% Bud; he'd arrive with a dozen full-strength and get mashed.

    His billet's parents sent him to AA! :D They called his Dad and told him and his Dad went, "Huh? WTF? AA? He's been doing that since 15!"

    But yeah, as homebrewers with access to massive amounts of beer for $15c a schooner - we have to be either constitutionally stable, or willful. Sometimes I'm glad alcohol gives hangovers; they're wakeup calls. Since I've been back into regular homebrewing I don't binge drink, and that's good for my health. Moderation is the best, but whether 2L of beer a night is moderate, that's anyone's guess.

    2-3 pints, sometimes more on days off and brew days.

    I'm comfortable with it. It doesn't impact much on my/family life, except my waistline. I guess it could impact on my health down the track? I could also walk under a bus tomorrow.

    hey Tru..if that is her in your avatar...I would do whatever she says.

    I'm a 1-4/night guy and i get pretty pissed on weekends.

    The big deal is when you start hiding your drinking and try to drink away hangovers.

    I thought it was a rule to have one from the last batch to toast the next.

    Cheers...I think I will
