Define "binge".

I'm not allowed to travel and I'm not allowed to socialize.  WTF else am I gonna do?

Wait, four drinks in a sitting is considered binge drinking? Assuming that's over a couple of hours, that isn't going to even get a decent sized guy over the legal limit. I demand a recount.

Is this the thread where people casually mention their alcoholism like it's either not a big deal, or some lifelong accomplishment?

Alarming new study reveals that binge drinkers are taking down four to seven drinks in a single sitting.

Fortunately, I got sober before the pandemic, otherwise I'd be completely broke and a mess right now. I can understand from past experience though. Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.

You know, when I drink alone I prefer to be by myself.

One sitting? I'd never get through four drinks without getting up for a snack or to take a leak...

I generally have to get up between drinks, they don't fill themselves.

But honestly when you have nothing but shi*ty TV to watch and aside from going for a walk, it leaves 23 hours in a day to fill.

I can no longer "binge drink".  The hangovers last two days and I got shiat to do.

That's my problem.

I thought I was at 4 last night, but upon recount I think I hit 5.
 
2020-12-09 12:48:33 PM  
its not a "binge" if you never stop.
 
2020-12-09 12:48:35 PM  
I have not increased drinking, mostly because going to Walmart to buy beer is unsafe, and I do not want to finish off bottles from my liquor shelf because that will create gaps that will annoy me like a splinter that I can't pull out.  But if I have a Campari and soda, I will always have a second and maybe a third, and then a cup or two of club soda.  Because those things are like Italian sodas.  Delicious.

Oh course people are drinking more, when everyone is getting slight cabin fever they always go full stupid and think that moving to Georgia was a good idea.

No, this is the thread where those of us who enjoy booze point and laugh at another ridiculous definition of "binge drinking" obviously written by someone who gets tipsy after one watered down margarita.

Most retailers and I am sure those that do not have order online and pick up will be happy to oblige.

That's really great, good for you. I started drinking much more at the 2016 election, but I wouldn't say I was alcoholic. Decided to cut back during the pandemic, but I started eating more carbs. I have not yet 100% stopped though I'd like to, still drinking wine on the weekend evenings. But if I can keep it to that, I think I'll be OK.

Thank you for saying what needed to be said.  Someone my size can drink 4 beers in an evening of watching TV and will have pissed nearly all the alcohol out by the time I fall asleep.

I have a HS classmate who has been posting photos of her cooking for several weeks. In each post, she describes the wine she had with it as if she was a sommelier.

Like 6 nights in a row, and a different wine each night. By comparison, I might have a 6-pack every 3-4 months.

I'm pretty much convinced she is an alcoholic, but she won't admit it.

Is it really a binge if you do it every day?
 
2020-12-09 1:30:56 PM  
I think I've had 3 alcoholic drinks since lockdown in March.

I've smoked the FARK out of some weed though.
 
2020-12-09 1:31:20 PM  
The definition of binge drinking is weak. Have like 3 beers in a night once a week and you're a problem drinker. Furthermore, it dilutes the issue for actual binge drinkers like myself, who drinks a 5th of whiskey plus whatever else in a quiet evening at home 2-3 times a month. It would be more often, but my hangovers keep me on the straight and narrow.

You're 50+ years old and still comparing yourself to a high school classmate? Why?

I couldn't figure out why I gained so much weight. Then I realized I was drinking every day. Since I want to lose weight more than I want to drink I said fark it, I'm done drinking. Only day three and I've significantly de-bloated.
 
2020-12-09 1:56:32 PM  
I don't remember when I had my last drinky-poo.

That's either really good, or very worrisome.
