Fark never invented midday drinking but it's coming damn close to perfecting it.

Drinking in the afternoon is much better...I hypothesize if they were able to accurately do such a study involving drunk drivers that the majority of accidents would be drunk driving+ accidents. Drunk driving plus being drowsy. Drunk driving plus poor visibility. Drunk driving plus inclement weather. Driving a car is pretty easy. However when you stack such variables against someone the chances for something bad happening skyrocket. It just so happens that drinking at night increases the odds of those drunk driving+ accidents.

Day drinking just makes me feel gross. Here in FL its and sticky enough as it is, the last thing I need is the bloated alcohol sweats at 2PM to add to it.

I'll stick to drinking after 8PM with he thermostat set to 65

That post reminded me of a time when I used to work graves years ago. Once a week after work in the morning a few of us who got off at the same time would go for beers and steaks at 9 am. People do give you the oddest looks.

I love getting off work at 8 AM and hitting up the liquor. Gets you some weird looks from the clerk. But then WHY IS THE LIQUOR STORE OPEN SO DAMN EARLY?

I thought that "breakfast wasted" was already a thing. Personally, I do prefer my fermented fruit beverage of choice in the evening, as it contributes to the depth of my slumber, but to each their own.

I work 12 hour days, 7 days a week for 2-3 weeks at a time (out of state). I go back home for 10-25 days off. On those days off, especially when it's nice out, one of my favorite things to do is sit on a back deck or patio at one of my local pubs and have a beer or 3 (then sober up before gf gets off work hah).

Am I the only one who finds it odd that the first two people interviewed for a story about people who are obvious alcoholics are named Flanary and McLenithan?
 
2012-09-08 08:48:01 PM
I am as much of a fan as day drinking as any red blooded American but shots every day before lunch? That's just pathetic
 
2012-09-08 08:48:15 PM
When I was 18-19, I had an assembly line type job that started at 4 am. Around 3:45, Id crack my first forty ouncer and he'd start tugging on his liquor, though I'd only drink ~20 ounces of Mickeys per break.

I had to quit drinking (kidneys) at 23 but, at that point Id wake up and pour a coffee mug of vodka just to straighten out, no matter what time it was. And a half mug twice as I woke up in the night.

I do too. I've gotten some real pitying looks from the liquor store folks when I get some after work.
 
2012-09-08 08:52:02 PM
Ok, this is a joke, right? Day drinking is not new. It was going on in the early 1980's, in Atlanta. Regularly. Just to cope with working in downtown. Near our office, there were two watering holes that served tasty burgers, hand cut home fries, and mixed drinks for less than $4, so you would throw down a $5 and say keep the change. Upper management went there, middle management, and us minions as well. If one place was crowded, there other was just as good. Take a break, lose the edge, it was all good.

worked 11-7 for nearly a decade. It was difficult to get pulled over. I blended in with the distracted moms so you could wander about (@ low speed to be sure) the local streets nearly at will. There was a bar that would open the door for you. Opening the door cost $20. The beer was free. Billiards were still .25¢ a game

Drinking at lunch has been pretty damn common for a very long time. Watch an episode of Mad Men. It is not far from the reality from post WW2 to before the biatch Nancy Reagan got all preachy.

Only if your drinking problem is like mine and you run out of booze.

I used to like to day drink because I'm an alcoholic and 1) could kill my hangover sooner and 2) could go out and still get home before I inevitably blacked out and did something stupid.

I have always heard that society types had a rule about polite people starting to drink at no earlier than 11 AM. Also, it appears to me that drinking has decreased since the 80s. People used to have less of a stick up their asses about it, if movies and TV of the past are any indicator.
