You are on the right road if your goal is to have a problem with alcohol.

maybe you should cut down on the beers and shots, very unhealthy the way your goin. you should seriously get out of that habbit and start having maybe 3-4 beers week. start sleeping at the right time, and live.

There's an old saying among "professional drunks" that goes, if you think you got a drinkin' problem, you probably do.....

Your a drunk. Change it up or you wont have a liver at 40. Good luck.

yes you do sir

It means you've developed a high tolerance. Unless you're like, 4 feet tall, 110 isn't very much weight. It's cool that you can function as highly as you do when you're taking in that much but you're just getting by with it because you're young. Also you should consider what you might be doing to your liver (ever heard of cirrhosis?). Because you're young, you're not putting on weight, but alcohol has calories. There's something like 120, or 140, I forget which, in every glass of wine, every pint of beer and every shot. One of my doctors told me it metabolizes into sugar in your body. When you're middle-aged, you will find yourself with a beer belly, as sure as gun's iron. And when you're middle-aged, you'll have hell and all getting rid of it. I think it's totally unfair that there should be calories in anything you don't have to chew, but there it is.

Oh, and one other thing: if you want to get the buzz back, you'll dial the booze way back.

Life its own self (and my doctor)
