I would estimate it to be a little closer to a fifth.

Nothing wrong with some self medication if you don't have to drive anywhere.

Well duh, 1/2 of the 2/3 that drink are drinking double to make up for the 1/3 that doesn't drink. See, in life, everyone gets an equal share of the booze. If 1/3 refuse their allotment, then it becomes available for those who want more. That means 2/3 of the population get to split 1/3 of the booze amongst themselves. But only 1/3 (1/2 of 2/3) of the drinking population wants more, so no allocation becomes necessary. Karma just makes it all work out beautifully. It is like double-stuff Oreos. (Not the new kind, the old kind with the really good filling.) In a regular Oreo the filling to cookie ratio is 1:2. In a double-stuff Oreo the ratio is 1:1. So if you extend the analogy, instead of having a package of regular Oreos that 1/3 have no filling, 1/3 have regular filling, and 1/3 have double-stuff, you have a package of double stuff with 1/3 having regular filling, 1/3 having double stuff, and 1/3 having double plus 1/3 stuff.

If you managed to follow that and it makes sense to you (it really shouldn't), you may have a drinking problem. It is 7am for crying out loud.

I've had to replace drinking with insomnia because I'd piss my bed after drinking enough alcohol to feel buzzed.

Does passing out count as relaxing?
