    Couple of boxes of beer and a couple of bottle of spirits / fortnight. When drinking it's 3 or 4 beers and few solid nips, other nights I have a cup of tea instead

    Heineken is what? $25 per 15 bottles? and you drink 10 to 12 of those per F/N (with or without help????) $250 to $300 per F/N???? Hells teeth that will buy a lot of ammo....thats $65oo per year...you must be on a hell of a good wicket to be able to spend that much....

    Light to moderate drinking is normally defined as 1-2 standard drinks per day for a male. Heavy is 4 standard drinks in any day or about 14 per week.

    Bottom line is what happens when you don't drink ? If you are not able to easily have a dry week or dry month, it's time to get some help.

    Ask your better half, kids, family or friends if they think you drink too much. Having a chat to your doctor if you have any concerns is not a bad idea.

    Was starting to get worried with a couple of boxes a week, not much but it was a couple or 3 every day... Just wanted to check I wasn't headed towards AA meetings so have given up drinking during the week.. Piece of piss, and as a bonus dropped 10 kg in 3-4 months.. One of those things when you slap middle age on the ass as you go past that makes you think, I want to carry on doing all this good shit for a lot of years to come...

    I haven't had a drink in almost 6 weeks. I will be able to have 1 or 2 on Friday.

    I am not much of a beer drinker at the best of times so only have beer in the house when expecting visitors.
    My duty free cabinet is a sight to behold.
    Always adding to it and afraid to touch anything in there. Always buy a bottle of single malt for the cabinet and one for me.

    I might be a closet prepper when it comes to booze.😆

    Should have added that, that's between 2 and often have guests over for the weekend.

    I think folks are ono it, what happens if you stop... I'm sure we have seen the ads on TV, 'can you remember last night' 'sick of feeling sick in the morning'.... Help is a valuable.
