I drink about 6 liters a month of rum, gin, or vodka. Is that excessive?!

Question: I drink about 6 liters a month of rum, gin, or vodka!. Is that excessive!?
I don't drink every night, but almost every night!. I mix them with Powerade or Dr, Pepper!. Sometimes I make martinis!. I never drink before 6 PM!. But then I often have from 2 to 6 drinks, before 1:00 AM, when I go to bed!. I wake up at 8 or 9 and feel totally fine!.

Am I just a lush, or do I have a potential problem!? Www@FoodAQ@Com

**** that yo!!!! 6 liters aint ****!. id say not enough in a month!. 6 liters a week would be a problem but **** im in a fraternity, go out every wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, and most sundays and probably down 6 liters in all those days, probably more!. SMIRNOFF IS THE ****!!!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I am guessing your fairly young for it not to phase you!. So it can become a problem!. You need to go without a drink more then one day here and there!. Don't see any problem with the amount per night!. I could see you going through 6 perhaps one month, but I don't think you should be going through that much every month!. Alcohol is hard on the system!. So even if you feel fine the next day, its still not good for you!. The question is!.!.!. Should you wait until you don't feel fine to stop!? I'd say that is taking a heavy risk since you only have one body to screw up and I seriously doubt that liver failure due to alcohol goes to the top of the donor list!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

My grandparents are from Germany and they drink way more then that!. They are about 75 years old now and healthy!. It all depends on you!. My Grandpa always told me "In the US I'm considered and alcoholic but in Germany I'm normal" Just make sure you take care of the important things first and don't hurt anyone!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

no not really if the 2 to 6 drinks are shot measures your not really drinking that much each day, however it adds up to quite a bit a week 14- 42 units a week which is a problem, try cutting it out 2 or 3 days a week and you'll be around the recomended amount per weekWww@FoodAQ@Com

You're definitely wearing down your liver and could develop heart problems!. Excessive drinking is classified as 35 or more drinks per week!. You seem to be falling into that category!. You don't sound like you're reckless but you should probably tone it down a lot!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think you are probably an alcoholic but it hasn't interfered with your life yet!. Be sure it will!. And when it does please go to AA meetings!. If you have children there is an 80% chance that they will inherit the disease of alcoholism!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

you might be a lush you might have a potential problem i drink about the same and i am fine dependance is what you have to worry aobut try to quit for a while if it is really hard be careful if it is no problem well then no problemWww@FoodAQ@Com

Ya think!?

Thats alot!. Even if you dont drink often, you are drinking too much!. You are still using and abusing!. Take care of your body! It needs to last you awhile

Add:Your name is Rehab Junkie or god's sake! Look at the signs!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I definitely think you have a potential problem!. That's a lot of alcohol in a month's time!

Maybe if it was just beer I wouldn't be so quick to say you have a problem, but it's hard liquor!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Dr pepper and powerade in mixed drinks!? Your amounts are indeed excessive if you use these products as mixers!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you keep that up you will die!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
