I assume they’re talking about beer.Six pints of Jack Daniels would be a bit much for all but the most accomplished drunks in the crowd.

That is nothing new.
The old “DRINK 1 BEER AN HOUR” based on

24 hrs in day/ 24 beers in a case....Do the math.

I believed in the 1 beer a day method, and though I haven’t had a drink since 1990, my beer a day formula has me covered through at least 2025 - if not longer - sometimes keeping score was ‘difficult’ although I am officially on record as blowing a ‘3’ on the meter and still standing and talking to the people I was having a robust conversation with. They didn’t believe the reading.....

I guess, for my livers sake, I quit in the ‘nicotine’(sic).
I also cold turkyed regular Camels 4 packs a day to zip and approximately 1 1/2 cases of Bud a day....stopped them both cold turkey in the same week.......BOY was I a ‘pleasant’ person to be around (so they say).......

LOL! How well I know the feeling! Wife and I cold turkeyed smoking 14 years ago. I never had a single problem, but my wife’s co-workers BEGGED her to take up smoking again! She finally-after a couple of months-got through it!

Six drinks? Problems only begin at 13 drinks? I wonder if Dr Poikolainen might have been absent the day his medical school professors covered delirium tremens ...also known as “rum fits”.I wonder if Dr Poikolainen understands that the DT’s have a mortality rate of about 25%.

I used to work with a guy who would not drink on the job but we would often go either hunting or shooting on Saturdays. He would always stop at a convenience store and buy a bag of ice and a 24 can pack of Shaefers beer.

By the end of the day he would have almost finished off the entire 24 cans.

Now I would normally never hunt or shoot with someone drinking but I could never tell it affected him at all. I can remember his shooting a great group with his Ruger single six after drinking maybe 12 cans.

I don’t drink so don’t know exactly how odd that was but I bet it was unusual.

If ya got elevated high blood pressure then its highly unrecommended. Too much booze is no good for the heart either and if one is obese then a double whammy.

My mom’s ex-husband drank 24 beers a day. We were sure that it’d kill him (we’ve never had an alcoholic in the family). But nope. He’s in his mid-80’s now and doing just fine. Still chugging 24 beers a day.
