    I drink daily. Generally from the time I get off from work till I go to bed or maybe a little before I go to bed. On the weekends, I generally start drinking in the early afternoon and stop when I go to bed.

      (Personal footnote: I'm 56, and a lot of things don't work so great anymore. The wrist is one example. Another is my Johnson, which doesn't fire up like it used to. Sometimes it hardly works at all. A year ago it actually backfired. The guy at the outboard motor repair shop where I bring it says this is common with an old Johnson.)

          Id imagine society views "normal" as 1-3 drinks with dinner or going out. And maybe once a week at that.



          I personally drink a lot less now, maybe 1-3 beers once every week or two on a Friday or Saturday. I used to drink Friday/Saturday nights and have probably 6-8 beers.

                I don't drink every night. If I do, it starts to bring me down. If I am drinking on a weeknight it's usually 2-3 beers. On the weekends if I'm getting drunk it's about 8-10 beers. Going past that amount gets me uber-drunk unless it's been spread out over a long time. It's usually 8-10 beers over about a 3 hour period. I usually probably drink 2 weeknights and one weekend night hard. Still all hard to gauge this though.

                  Definitely depends on the society. Southern Louisiana is pretty fond of drinking, and most people I know have at least one drink a day. Most of my friends have a few more than that every day.

                    I usually have 1-2 beers or 1-2 glasses of wine once or twice a week. I probably go out for 3-4 pints of beer once or twice a month. I don't think I drink much at all.

                      I think a glass or two of wine a night is normal. I drink a bottle or two of wine a night soooo roughly 4 times what I'd consider normal. My liver and I aren't on speaking terms.

                        Both, legally I can't but that's never stopped anyone. I have a family history of alcoholism though so I've made the choice not to.

                            I hit the bourbon most nights. When I get home from picking up my kids I'll make a bourbon and coke. Sip throughout the night. Not sure or care where that fits.





                            A couple times a month I'll have two bourbon and cokes.



                            I gave up beer for the time being. Bored with it.

                              I came back in to say that. When I lived in AZ there was a lot more drinking. My brother knew a family who would have over there friends and everyone would bring there kids (3-8 years old). Then the parents would get absolutely plastered and stay til 3am



                              Here in Chicago it's a little different. But at 27 I still have a lot of friends that go hard every weekend. It's just not for me anymore.



                              A few years ago i'd consider myself an average weekend bar type. 8 beers or so was a pretty common # then
