Be honest -how much booze do you get through a day/week
I have at least two but more like 4 glasses of wine a day and more at a weekend. i don't drink shorts much except in winter when a bottle of spiced rum will last me about a week. I have maybe a couple of days a week wine free on occasion (!) but I actually love wine but don't crave it. According to statistics I consume around three times more than I should -i have to say I don;t give a flying F cos i have an active lifestyle and eat a healthy balanced diet, prepared at home (never ever bought a ready meal in my life) - so how much do you consume -if anything- and do you worry that its way over the 23 units advised a week?
I will give some reassurance - although I don't think you need it! I drink more than the "safe" limit and I couldn't give a damn! I enjoy my wine every evening and the amount varies according to how much I want to drink. I'm 54 and plan to continue eating and drinking as I please - and be HAPPY. Don't want to start watching everything I eat and drink and being -...

Whatever answers are given on here, any GP worth his salt will multiply the same by a factor of at least 4 to arrive at a sensible figure. When asked by my GP how much I drank in a week I replied 28 units ( the "safe" recommended amount). "So I'll put you down for 112", was his reply. I hadn't the heart to tell him that even that was an underestimate.
