Question: Are people that drink hard spirits more likey to have serious health problems as opposed to beer drinkers!?
All other things being equal, yes!. If you have someone drink 6 beers a day versus someone take 6 shots a day the person taking shots damages their liver more!. This is because the alcohol is more concentrated!. It also is more dehydrating, since the shots come with 60% water but the beer is 95% water!. This leads to all the typical problems of dehydration!.

Now if you meant if you drink beer but your friend drinks liquor who will end more likely to be alcoholic, then its a toss up!. Someone can mix the liquor and have a shot or two all night while you could be there tossing back a case!. Drinking hard liquor in and of itself does not make you more likely to be an alcoholic or develop health problems, any more so than drinking beer or wine would!. It still is completly up to how much you drink, how frequently and what you will do to get a drink!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It doesn't matter!.!.!. alcohol is alcohol!. It seems individualized as to how long and how much!. People drink to feel the effects of alcohol so it doesn't matter what they choose as their alcohol source!.!.!. they get the dose and frequency going to the point of causing damage!. Sometimes the bottom falls out fast!.!.!. without warning!.!.!. one can be on a terminal path!.

There can be co-morbid events that really hasten things!. I saw a 32 yr old mother of 3 young kids!.!.!. she drank 6 to 12 beers a day!.!.!. came into the hospital jaundiced!. She was dead in a week!.!.!. before she could get a liver transplant!. She was also taking acetaminophen daily to deal with feeling hungover!.!.!. the combination fried her liver!. She was hard working and very pretty!. It was a shock to all!.

I am in the medical field and I have also chatted with an old bartender that seemed to have some good insights!. Most cruise along thinking things are routine!.!.!. and wake up in serious trouble!.!.!. others have warning after warning that they ignore!. It is a very insidious thing with lots of variables!. You will probably see answers that people use to justify their choice!. Pick your "best answer" carefully!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think at the end of the day it all comes down to drinking too much!. and if your drinking too much i think you already know it!.!. you can justify it to yourself however you want, but truth is you already know it!.!. beer, wine, scotch, vodka its all the same in the end if you overdo it!. If your drinking too much beer your gut (no pun intended) is already telling you its time to stop!.!. ;)Www@FoodAQ@Com

They showed us a movie at our AA meeting that said (in the long run) hard spirits, beer & wine all 3 have the same effect on the brain!.

Drink enough and you'll become "Brain Dead"!.

(Is it not a shame) some people think they can outsmart the bottle and do the routine of "controlled drinking" !?

I dare you to take a trip down to a auto grave yard and picture the accident !!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Alcohol in beverages are all the same, beer, wine and hard liquor!. It's more a question of how much one drinks, not what beverage!. Remember, on average, one shot = one beer = one glass of wine as far as alcohol content!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Actually yes!.

Beer and wine are not nearly as hard on the system as things like whiskey, scotch and vodka!. They are particularly detrimental to the liver!.

also - it takes much less of them to get drunk!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The level of intoxication is determined by the amount of alcohol taken!. A shot of hard spirit to some bottles of beer doesn't make difference at all!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It all depends on the amount the beer drinker has!. If the beer drinker has a case a day then he is at risk like the hard alcohol drinker!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

no!.!.!. it depends on the amount they intake and the frequently that they drink!.!.!.
hard liquor is less fatning!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
