In Britain, the advisable alcohol intake is 14 units per week, which is a measure as a yank I don't understand.

As a person who likes alcohol way too much, my advice is zero units. I wish I could get there.

If i were a fictional character, I'd drink as much as I could, too.  And of course, have the revolving door of those women as well.

I think they mean a shot/beer/glass of wine as a unit, so two drinks a day.  So if you have eight drinks a day you're supposed to be a mess of a drunk that can't even function.

The distinction is lost when you consider the less traditional varieties now available. A Bud Light or a 21 ounce 10% chocolate stout?

I was wrong: One alcohol unit is measured as 10ml or 8g of pure alcohol. This equals one 25ml single measure of whisky (ABV 40%), or a third of a pint of beer (ABV 5-6%) or half a standard (175ml) glass of red wine (ABV 12%).

In the books, James Bond was sent to dry out at least once... twice if you count his therapeutic (and disastrous) trip to Japan.

If you're tracking every single drink in every James Bond novel, maybe you need to have a couple of drinks.

My favourite drinking scene is in Moonraker (the book). Going from memory, he starts with a couple of dry Martinis before dinner, has a bottle of white wine with his dinner, then finished off with half a pint of iced vodak. He then jumps in his Aston Marten (or Bentley?) and follows the villain, but supposedly gets outdriven and drives off the road.
I think the chasing villains part was just the excuse he gave the cops who turned up to haul his sorry are back on to the road.

enry: He also smoked a lot (even for the time) and noshed on amphetamines.


True dat.  Fleming was knocking back a carton a day at one point, and barely throttled back after he had his first coronary, and if he ever drank anything non-alcoholic it was only because he'd run out and the housekeeper hadn't gotten to the liquor store yet.  Add to that the fact that he was extremely unhappy in his marriage (they'd had a long-time affair, she'd married someone else but kept seeing Fleming, she finally divorces the other guy and marries Fleming and they turned out to be quietly miserable with one another) and it's hard to escape the conclusion that Fleming was slowly committing suicide...and it's equally difficult to escape that conclusion in regards to the literary version of 007.

The CDC runs a bit differently:
A standard drink is equal to 14.0 grams (0.6 ounces) of pure alcohol. Generally, this amount of pure alcohol is found in

* 12 ounces of beer (5% alcohol content).
* 8 ounces of malt liquor (7% alcohol content).
* 5 ounces of wine (12% alcohol content).
* 1.5 ounces or a "shot" of 80-proof (40% alcohol content) distilled spirits or liquor (e.g., gin, rum, vodka, whiskey).

By UK gauge, 4% of 250 ml is 10ml of alcohol, only 0.33814 ounces -- only slightly more than half (~56.5%) the CDC recomendation.

As a quickie (converted):

* CDC recommends 1 unit = 12 ounces of 5% beer
* UK says ~8.5 oz of 4%

Why they chose ~8oz is a mystery. Do they have 8oz cans? If not, and they have 12ozers, why not go 350ml or 355ml (12oz = ~354.9ml)?

*shrug*

Doesn't appear so, and I find this absurd. You're taking entire cultures of wine drinkers (Looking at you, Italy) and saying they're all alcoholics. That's not medicine, that's insanity.

Bond's drinking even struck me as weird as a kid. He's written as a functional alcoholic, did a run in detox, no less, though I'd disagree with bigfatbuddhist up thread. The Japan trip I don't see so much as a cue to quit drinking- he doesn't even really try. I see it more as them trying to break his depression the alcoholism was a symptom of.

All of them, in order (not of film release but of book release) more than one. Octopussy and the other shorts are weak, but Scaramanga is still a hell of a villain. It's the one place I can't let Fleming's description stand- I see Christopher Lee. The movies also screw his watch. Bond wore an early Rolex Air King, not a Submariner.

So, a professional killer who spent most of his adult life under threat and in high stress situations had a tendency to self medicate using the only readily available and legal substance.  If he weren't a government employee in a high security position he'd have probably used something more effective like an opiate and a stimulant like Benzedrine or similar to offset the less helpful effects of the opiates he was on.  As it was, he had alcohol and most likely caffeine (Tea like any proper Englishman) to mitigate the reaction time issues from the booze.  Mind you, psychoanalyzing a fictional character's habits is kind of silly.  Just remember that Bond is fiction and needs little if any connection with reality.  If reality had anything to do with the Bond books, the protagonist would have been dead within the first couple of books if not the first, and he'd have been a raving mad man before the series was complete given the things he went through.

James Bond's Scrambled Eggs (From the Ian Fleming short story 007 in New York):

(serves four 'individualists')
* 12 fresh eggs
* salt and pepper
* 5-6 oz. fresh butter.

Break the eggs into a bowl. Beat thoroughly with a fork and season well. In a small copper (or heavy-bottomed saucepan) melt four oz. of the butter. When melted, pour in the eggs and cook over a very low heat, whisking continuously with a small egg whisk. While the eggs are slightly more moist than you would wish for eating, remove pan from heat, add rest of butter, and continue whisking for half a minute, adding the while finely chopped chives or fine herbs. Serve on hot buttered toast in individual copper dishes (for appearance only) with pink champagne (Taittainger) and low music.


James Bond's Dry Martini: The Vesper (from Casino Royale)

* Three measures of Gordon's
* one of vodka
* half a measure of Kina Lillet

Shake it very well until it's ice cold, then add a large slice of lemon peel.
