    With college,due to a recession,I'd have about 6 cans of bavaria,or the 8 pack if I have enough,about 3 nights a week. If I'm out at home,with money,I'd have 6 heineken before heading out and 2-4 more pints.

    A shoulder of pissy vodka and then usually one bottle or a shot inside the club.


  • Registered Users Posts: 87 ✭✭shrubs


    7 or 8 pints and 1or2 bottles of whiskey depending on how often I go out

    could easily have 2-3 bottles of lager a couple of times a week at home and the odd time im out then 6-8 pints then have a few vodkas/whiskeys


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,266 ✭✭✭Steyr


    6-8 Bottles of Kopparberg or Rekorderlig Mixed Fruit on a night out. If i stay in its 3 of either of them and a Pizza.

    If you have a heavy month do you find yourself fatigued for the best part of the next month?

    Depends on whats on. Last two weekends i had day sessions on the saturdays, had about 20 bottles of miller each day. I hadnt done that in years. Im still tired :(

    If its a quiet week, ill have 2/3 on a friday night, and a 6-pack on a sat night. Never drink during the week. Just feels weird to me.

    At last, a drinker. I dont feel so bad now.

    * In the local maybe 6 times per week ( just to be sociable of course), and if i'm not, then tinnys at home. Midweek maybe 4-5 pints. Weekends..... well just add a few ;)

    On average I might go out every two weeks. When I do its a 6 pack of Corona and a Ninja Nagin.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 18,335 ✭✭✭✭UrbanSea


    Had a half bottle of whisky and four cans last night. Didn't manage to make it into town,but woke up in bed this morning not knowing how I got there,with a huge cut on my forehead and I think I may have broke my wrist.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,899 ✭✭✭coughlan08

    Enough to get chucked out of after hours in 5 posts... whilst being morally judged by some wet towel avenger with
    10,000 posts... I mean 10,000 posts... f*ck me does he live in his mom's basement on a strict diet of TV dinners, whilst wearing a 'I shagged Sharon Ozbourne T-shirt'... has he ever held a girls hand... has he ever bathed his albino-like skin in sunlight?

    Between going out on a college nite and staying in at weekends, weekly i would drink on average 10 pints and half a bottle of vino.

    Way too much..

    4-5 cans or a bottle of Red/White most week nights..
    12 pints and a couple of spirits on a weekend night out.. or something similar if I stay in..
    Sunday can be a long day.. but I've started leaving it 'til Sunday evening/night now.

    God, putting it in print, I'm gonna be a gonner..

    :o

    The 12 pints is far too much for me but I might have you beat ;)

    However... every 2 days (sometimes every two weeks i'll go drinking one day and the next) I have anywhere between a naggin with 4/5 cans. 7-10 cans or if it's just a light night, just a half bottle of a spirit, usually Southern Comfort. Sometimes I get a full bottle and drink about 2/3rds and then leave the rest for the second day with a naggin.
    Oh cans are 500ml ones.

    Yes I'm an alcoholic but I don't give a damn. :)

    NO more beer for me. :( Long term medication that cannot be mixed with it, not even a little bit. *sigh.
    Not that I was a massive drinker but I love a nice Weissebier.

    Varies from week to week. Too much if partying. Sometimes a pint or two while watching a football game on weekends. Like a glass of wine with dinner on occasion. There are weeks when I don't drink at all.

    Usually all of it, whatever's got....going to do some serious drinking this weekend. Going to Thomand on Saturday and I'm making a weekend of it.....:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 121 ✭✭distraction


    on a good weekend (4days) two crates of cheap 5% beer. I'm not fussy...as long as it comes in multiples of 24


  • Registered Users Posts: 87 ✭✭shrubs


    Put in a decent(if slightly worrying) week this week! 5 nights, 17 pints,4 bottles of beer and 51 shorts(that I can recall). Could be slightly more than recommended...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,515 ✭✭✭✭admiralofthefleet


    very little now caompared to just a year ago, once maybe twice a week and nowhere near the excesses of before


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,925 ✭✭✭trout

    I have cut down a huge amount in the past six months. In the first half of this year it would easily have been 15pints of cider and a huge amount of vodka and shots a week.

    Ive cut that back in the past month to 8pints of guinness and 1.5 long neck bottles with my dinner last night. I really feel the better for it. I however do go mad the odd time still, so need to leesen the frequency of them.
