Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - samsamsam - 09-30-2014 07:58 PM

From Washington Post. Keep in mind some people under report, which means the non drinkers drink, but the heavy duty drinkers really drink then.

24 million Americans drink 10 drinks a day?

Jesus. I have maybe 6 a week.

Boom, finally made it to the top decile in something. I'm sending this to my mom.

Apparently Gerard Depardieu is putting back a dozen bottles of wine these days, and pissing in air plane aisles: http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywood/2014/09/gerard-depardieu-bottles-wine-per-day

Holy shit. Over 70 a week is what we used to do in the off season for our sport in college - and feel like degenerates.

I'd say I fit into the 15 a week bracket now, but that's all in one night...

Finally, I am the 1%.

I have been well over 70 lately but I'm quitting for the month of October. I'm cutting out all junk food and alcohol with no cheat days.


RE: Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - Sam1234 - 09-30-2014 10:29 PM

We are the 1%.

Teetotaler here. Guess that makes me bottom decile


RE: Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - monster - 09-30-2014 10:52 PM

So I guess 24 million people just drink from sun up to sun down. I wonder what separates the homeless people sipping on liquor all day from the well-to-do people who do the same thing. Why are some people homeless while others functional?

I'd also be curious to see a regional chart showing geographically which places drink the most in the states.

edit: here it is

Jesus Christ, 70 drinks per week? Even in my major pisshead days at university I don't think I drank that much. Who does that? How have their livers not collapsed by now?

Likewise, I call BS on Depardieu drinking 12+ bottles per day. If those bottles are 750ml, that's at least 9 litres of fluids per day. You'd spend all day pissing. You'd have to be drinking and pissing at the same time in order to get through it all.

If we're considering 2 oz of alcoholic liquid (ABV ~40% minimum) as a "drink" then I'm definitely in the upper-echelon. Depending on what I'm doing I float somewhere between the ninth (writing) and tenth (programming) decile.


RE: Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - Hades - 10-01-2014 12:35 AM

I probably average something like 30 units of alcohol per week if you count the random beer here and there at dinner. Shit if you figure two drinks per day, then that's 14. Three would be 21.

The really heavy drinkers on this list, the 70+ units, probably start drinking at about noonish with lunch every day and do so steadily until dinner. Like really heavy smokers (2-3 packs) they probably don't sleep much more than four or five hours a night because drinking (or smoking) that much takes a lot of time in a day.


RE: Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - Chaos - 10-01-2014 12:51 AM

This seems shady.
12 drinks a day is not that much, but basically you are drinking all the time or recovering from a hangover.

But 24 million?

Jeez, and I thought we had a lot of drunks here.

For once it feels good to be below average Smile


RE: Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - Rutting Elephant - 10-01-2014 02:11 AM

Hmm, an online calculator tells me one 750ml bottle of hard liquor is 55 drinks.
Time to cut back before my liver becomes a geode.


RE: Think you drink a lot? This chart will tell you - Saweeep - 10-01-2014 04:38 AM

Is a "drink" a unit of alcohol?

As an outsider's perspective, I think alcohol is the least of America's problems (60% basically drink nothing!)…whenever I am in the states and out with fellow Brits everyone thinks we are alcoholics in comparison.

What? No. A standard shot is 44ml. So that's 17 shots (or drinks with a standard pour) per 750ml bottle. See below.

But damn. I had not idea that many people were boozing that hard, day in day out.

I'm on the 10 drinks a night, 1-2 nights a week bandwagon. And lately it's been way less than that. Fuck drinking every day. My stomach would cease to function properly.

I betcha 50 drinks equals 10 football stadiums and 3 library of congresses.

These stats are useless when they present the base unit as 1 drink.

Give me some real numbers fools.

That's sad...or you're way underestimating how much you drink when you drink light beer partying in college.

I'd say on lighter weekends I'm a near guarantee for 20 on Fri-Sat easy, let's say 25. Sunday I usually do funday, so another 5-10. During the week I'd say maybe 10-20 (depending on Monday Night Football watch, post gym beers, Thursday boozin).

I'm probably running 35-50 per week. I've done 70 many times, but that wouldn't be average I don't think. Tough to drink that much good beer.

I wonder what the percentage of alcholics is in the US.
