Drinking Limits

#1
I am now pestered by various ,(Wife/GF/sons/. on how much is too much.

It seems that you should not drink more than a bottle of wine a week.

I am lost for words !

Hang on, I need to open another bottle.

What is your opinion?

Easily sorted

You just have to choose the right bottle of wine

My opinion is, following 40+ years of imbibing alkyfrol I am no longer allowed to partake of the amber nectar.

As for 1 bottle of wine per week - well that depends very much on the size of the bottle and type of wine!! :)

The limits are about to be relaxed by the medical profession.

They are little more than a guess.

You have a wife and a girlfriend? How very modern.

The units per day were just made up as were the 5 portions of fruit/veg. A panel of experts used the back of a fag packet so as far as i'm concerned they can ram it.

Generally, there is no such thing as "too much" at the time of drinking.

In my past I have woken up next to some right horrors, ginger or otherwise, which would suggest that I had consumed "too much"

I've yet to find exactly what the quantity of booze is however. It would appear that "too much" can only be gauged in the future, by your actions "in the past" so I wouldn't worry about it.

As long as you don't NEED a drink before you can get on with anything you're probably OK. Of course there's the matter of calories to be considered too.

From my perspective I reckon if you keep it to after work on weekdays and after lunch on weekends and can still get up and function in the morning you're probably not really overdoing it.

I think the guidelines as issued by my old Sqn Ldr in the good old days of BAOR: Red in the morning Blue in the afternoon and white (with a good yellow tinge) in the evening worked fine.

Drink whaterver you can comfortably function on, whether that be 1 glass of merlot or 19 cans of Stella.

Obviously if you get too inebriated to walk then you will have to drive.

Will a bottle of wine keep for a week once opened, I ask this as I've never tried letting it go that long.

Na, wine is good for a few days at the most. You are better off seeing it away once opened, best not take the chance that it will be rotten by the time you come back to it - unless of course it was rotten when you first started it!

Personally, I've had too much if I "follow through", or so Mrs Balls tells me

Thanks, so that pretty much debunks the "one bottle a week rule" as one bottle is not drinkable by the end of the week. Therefore we need to work on the "consume once opened" method.
