Drinking - How Much?

No matter how hard the study, an adequate social life is critical, with social drinking playing a crucial part. Being an inquisitive student, some questions should spring to mind, such as How much should I drink? or What should I drink? I intend to answer these and other questions, starting with how much.

Many people preach about not going over your limit, which is true. Not many people however are actually aware of their limit, or what the limit should be. For this reason, it is advised that you drink until you are hospitalised and have your stomach pumped. This is the only real way to actually know what your limit is. Your limit may change regularly and as such, you should check your limit quite often. This way, you'll know how much you shouldn't drink if you don't want to end the night in the hospital.

  7. I just drink until I am drunk, I dont get so drunk that I black out though. I've always managed to drink the right amount, drunk, but not too drunk.

  8. Drinking is fine, people just go over their limits and give drinking a bad name

  9. Wilford Brimley says "check your blood sugar and check it often." I think I like the "check your limits with alcohol and check it often" version better.
