Default How much do you drink? Is that so bad?

Ever since i started homebrewing, i have found myself drinking alot more. Every day for that matter. average is about 5 a day. I was curious as to how much other members here drink and is it really as bad for you as people say? Im not an alcoholic, i just love my brew, especially when it is one of my creations!

Well I've been trying to lose a little weight lately so I've cut back my intake. I might have 1 or 2 a night, but I really try to hold out for the weekends. I was drinking 5 or 6 a night for a while, and I could tell my SWMBO was getting upset with my intake. So I cut back before anything had to be said. But like a said, onw it's for me losing some pounds

I think an easy way to tell if you're getting into trouble is to take two days off from drinking any alcohol. If you don't find that to be a problem, you're just gaining weight is all. I personally think 5 a night is excessive and could easily lead to dependency and liver damage over a span of a couple years.

1-2 a day when not at work, so roughly a sixer per week (give or take a bottle )

1-2 pints a night 2-3 weekdays per week. Usually a little more on the weekend depending on whats going on.

I'd say that I probably average 2 a day. I normally will only drink 2, maybe 3 days out of a week.

This kinda surprises me. An outsider looking in at us might as well assume that since we are a group of people making our own beers, we would be a group of stumbling drunks. I've gotten looks from people in my office when I've told them that I brew my own beer and instanly I get the "oh my god, he's a raging alcholic" look. But after giving my boss a pint of my last batch of IPA, this has changed his opinion, and that's all the matter to me!
