When you're paying $2 to get drunk worry about it. If you're buying a 6 of craft beer and only getting drunk on the weekends don't worry about it, getting a little buzzed after work doesn't count.

As some others have said it's not the quantity, per se. It's that your fiancee thinks it's a problem. That means it's an issue that has to be dealt with. Telling her, in so many words, to suck it up probably isn't going to bode well for you and your future wife.

Few years ago I would down a 30 pack of beer in one day. A Saturday could easily see 2-30 packs. This was every day pretty much for probably 2 or 3 months. I'd drive everywhere with a case sitting in the passenger seat, throwing the empties as I finished them in the bed of the truck and popping a new one.

That to me was to much. I finally decided that it and to prove I wasn't an alcoholic stopped for 2 months. That was a hard 2 weeks (never made it 2 months).

I know guys who still do that same amount every day. 30 pack is brought to work and drank throughout the day. Then they may drink another dozen or so when they get home or go party that night.

So, your 3 or 4 is nothing. Currently I'm typically in the 2 or 3 per night. Sometimes none, sometimes more. Probably averages at 2

Hehehe...well, the assumption was he wants to stay involved since she is fiancee. One way or another though it'll have to be dealt with.

That Jeep Thread is pure gold. Post #2 is the best piece of advice I've read in all my years of online forums.

I believe the saying goes something like

"A man's got to know his limitations."...

Knowing what those are, and working within those parameters means you'll not have too many in a day.

I'm a nocturnal EMT (red eyes).

I get home and have a beer at 7:30am. Every morning. I typically check in to said beer on untappd. I had a friend stage an intervention, he didn't put two and two together that my 7:30am was his 5:30pm.

Typically I have 2-3 a day. Maybe 5-6 on a weekend (Mon-Wed). Hard to really tell. When I started keeping multiples on tap I realized I enjoy 6-8oz glasses at a time, sometimes less. Variety is the space of life.

I will NEVER put my uniform on blowing over a .02. EVER. I will never climb in the rig over a .00. I have a breathalizer and I take it seriously. That let's me know I don't have a problem.
