"All of the effects of alcohol are sort of amplified with age."

For a lot of reasons.

From the link:

"About 52% of people age 45 to 64 are "regular" drinkers, meaning they had at least 12 drinks in the previous year"

Twelve Drinks in a YEAR is a "Regular Drinker"? One a Month?

Under That Criteria I Think I'm Caught Up as a "Regular Drinker" Until the Next Century.

I wonder if pot might be better for the aging.

betamax, the same quote jumped out at me too.

Who makes these ridiculous rules? Oh yeah, the government. Bureaucrats gotta do something to justify their salary. Why not re-do the definition of a "regular" drinker?

Well, once-a-month would be a "regular" drinker, since once-a-week is a "religious" drinker.

(A bit of wine every Sunday.)

You have a good New Year's Eve and you might have 12 drinks after midnight. And be done for the year!

12 drinks in one night?

After 3 martinis, I'm falling asleep.

I'm a Reserve drinker; I drink when the regulars can't.

Remember, a binge is now four drinks. I remember when a binge lasted from Friday night to Monday morning.

Ken: "I remember when a binge lasted from Friday night to Monday morning."

Me: If you remember, that was no proper binge...
