Alcohol: how much do you drink

I'm curious about the booze habits of climbers. how much do you drink? do you feel your alcohol consumption (or lack there of) contributes to your weight and overall fitness?

Ten months sober as of 6 days ago. As for before that, well, your poll doesn't begin to come close.

I don't really understand how it jumps from "5 to 7 per week" to "too many to count".

I assumed most RC.com member can't count past 7.

Well, when I used to drink a half gallon of gin or vodka every day, that was only "one."

Basic math, really.

the poll results are interesting so far. it seems like RC members drink nothing at all or everything in sight.

Add me to "nothing at all".... once your liver starts to fail it's best to quit.

depends:

- in hot / dry Chile, I drank about 7-10 glasses of water beer per week.

- in humid New England, I drank about 1-2 beers per week sometimes over the course of six weeks or so, and then I wouldn't drink anything at all for another six weeks or so. rinse, repeat.

While I never drank much (it was more of the 'other stuff')...

That's pretty much me: "ALL or nothing".

Sounds like me and pizza. Tongue

Seriously, congratulations on getting sober.

When ever I take one of those 'Are you a dangerous drinker?' questionnaires, it always says I'm a binge drinker, coz I'll have a few glasses of wine over the week then get shitfaced one ever other week.

Whatever, world. Don't judge me.

It's all good, biner. Smile

Personally, I have an alergic reaction to mood changing/mind altering substances...

When I'm under the influence, I break out in handcuffs, fights, and long periods of homelessness.

And, I never could seem to get enough... Even though I've OD'd several times

Like I said, it's 'all or nothing' with me, and 'nothing' seems to work better for me. Wink


But I have on occasion gotten a 'designated drinker', and I make them pay. Seriously... I've dont this twice at RC.com Gatherings in the past, as someone always wants to rise to the occasion. Tongue

Like I always say, "You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning." And I've trademarked that phrase so if anyone puts it on a t-shirt I expect some royalties.

I think your poll doesn't have quite enough options. A glass of wine every day with dinner (something by no means indicative of a heavy drinker), will put someone at the top of your scale.

Agreed... My wife drinks a glass of wine about every night.

Would've been better if those numbers were per day, not per week.

There is an option for 5-7 a week.

Last time I checked a week was roughly 5 to 7 days.

I think the scale is correct. Anyone drinking more than a 7 drinks a week is usually drinking more than they could count.

Drinking is usually 0 to 1 per day(with very occasional 3 to 4 in one specific day) or litres of booze/day. <-- this is what it seems like to me.
