    If you're more than a moderate drinker, you're an alcoholic. I don't care whether the person is actually physically addicted to alcohol or not, it's damaging their health and they're using it for more than it should be used for.

    Moderate drinking is good for you. Heavy drinking is not.


    The definition of moderate drinking is between 2 and 4 drinks a day for a man and 1 to 2 drinks a day for a woman.

    according to the court mandated alcohol class, to chart whether drinking is moderate or not, one should follow the 1,2,3 guidelines... moderate apparently means 1 drink per hour, 2 drinks a day and no more than 3 drinks any given day at all

    I suppose that my old habit of only drinking 2 days a week, but getting completely wasted then, does NOT follow the laws of moderate drinking

    Nope. In fact, heavy drinking on the weekend is worse than heavy drinking every day. If it's a daily occurance, the body adjusts to it somewhat.

    I was quoting the class that they make you take if they think that you have a drinking problem and want to make you quit drinking there... I was not quoting myself!

    My grandfather was an alcoholic for years, so I've seen that up close and personally... if he wasn't at work, he had a drink in his hand, and the effects of his drinking severely affected family life for everyone.

    People who say you should not drink at all are either clueless, or it's a response to having an alcoholic in their life at some point or another.


    People who struggle with alcohol shouldn't drink. For everyone else, a few drinks a day is not only "not bad," it's good. Good for the heart and overall health.

    oh yes, I'm very aware of the positive effects that alcohol in moderation can have on one's health... I used to work in the alcohol industry

    oh i was refering to freeeeeeeky who was all like if you get drunk even rarely you are obviously an alcoholic!!!! no i'm not arguing drinking a ton doesn't have adverse affect on your health, but I am arguing that getting wasted maybe once a month at most ≠alcoholism.
