How much alcohol do YOU consider too much?

i personally don't drink at all, but don't see anything wrong with people who enjoy a cocktail or even a few but DH tips the scales. he averages 8 per night (a case of beer every 3 days). any night and every night. i think it's gotten to be so much i can't deal with it. If it were you, what's your opinion?

  • that is excessive. Does he have a stressful job and using it as a crutch to "wind down"?

  • I think what you mentioned is way too much, I do not drink either, but the first sign of an alcoholic is when they have alcohol for breakfast!

  • thats excessive for sure. by definition if any person drinks 1 alchoholic drink everyday they are an alchoholic. in addition 1 drink everyday raises ones chance of having liver failure by like 50% i read somewhere. This is, in my opinion, something that should most definatly be addressed. i hope everything works out.

  • I think 8 drinks on occasion is alright, 8 drinks every night is too much.

  • while 8 may be a bit excessive not sure i would consider him an alcoholic.. my ex was/is aalcoholic, drank from the time he got up til the time he went to sleep 18pk plus a bottle of evan williams a day... if it is bothering you then you should talk to him about it and let him know in least possible aggressive/defensive manner that you are concerned for his health...

  • My opinion is alcoholic. My ex was and still is an alcoholic. My adult son is an alcoholic. They both can and do when they have money each can drink 12 cans a night, sometimes more.
