One drink? All that does is provoke me. I'd rather simply not drink it all than just have one.

My one drink is 4 oz of rum (low-90's proof) mixed with a 16-oz energy drink.

But when lunch is over, all bets are off.

Lockdown is hell.

Mixing with an energy drink doesn't sound that safe.

NEW YORK (AP) - If you decide to have an alcoholic drink, limiting yourself to one a day is best - whether you're a man or woman.

I'm a binge drinker. For a month or so, I drink nothing. Then for one night, I go crazy and have a beer. Had a tall boy last time. I think I'm an alcoholic.

I love good beer. However I will never understand how folks can drink so many in one setting. After a couple of pints or so I am physically "full" and sated. I can't imagine continuing drinking from that point simply on a discomfort level.  A couple of times I year I go to a corner bar with a friend of mine in Berlin to drink, tell stories and commiserate. I think on those nights I may get to four beers tops over several hours. And still it becomes work by the end.

Well fark. I nearly finished off a bota box.

3 litlemmrs* is kind of like one drink right?

Thanks for the suggestion.  It is duly noted and filed under things to ignore.  And is this suggestion brought to us by the same people that promoted the Food Pyramid which led to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, etc.?

And probably the same who says eggs are bad every other year...coffee can prevent cancer... or no wait! It can cause it!  Drink a glass of red wine per day for heart health (or death!) And many other suggestions or recommendations that change often enough to make your head spin.

Beer is the only reason I can tolerate a writer such as you.

Drinking a bigger glass makes it more than 1 serving so you're still breaking the rules.
 
2020-07-16 2:18:01 AM  
No.

No point in maybe living longer if I have to give up what makes life worth living.

Also,

The advice is based on links that researchers observed between drinking habits and all causes of death, including heart disease, cancer and car accidents, rather than a specific physical harm that alcohol might have. Such observational studies, common in food and nutrition science, do not establish a cause-and-effect relationship...

Stopped reading there.

In my twenties I could drink a lot of beer in one sitting, but now it's one or two, and then I need to move on to lighter mixed drinks.

I'd rather just have a few too many every now and again then one every day.

Science proves the more doctors you speak with the more likely you are to die from the treatment they prescribe.

I think when you take into account how much fatter we've become since 1990 it should come out to at least 1.5 drinks.

I have a hilarious idea... What about one drink in a really big glass. Har har har

Really? I suppose that next you'll tell us that the people in those pictures are trying to be funny, instead of being morons who are trying to cheat the one-drink rule.

Same here. I don't drink at all during the week.  But when the weekend comes, I usually have 16-20 between Friday night and Saturday night

I meant to reply to the guy who pointed out drinking a really big glass is more than one drink. This is why I shouldn't post sober.

Give us single-payer heath care, fix the student loan crisis, and imprison all of the scumbags in the Chaos Goblin administration, and I can cut back to one drink a day.

I'll stick with the European guidelines over the US ones.  Much less of a Puritan influence and often science based.

I think they already have. But the correct assumption is that many folks won't completely abstain, so they continue to move the needle in hopes of appealing to someone, I guess.
