7 Drinks

Apparently, I binged last night.
Emeritus professor and chairman of the Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Foundation Ian Webster says Australians have a distorted view of their alcohol consumption and what most consider normal drinking is actually harmful. At least once a month, 46 per cent of male drinkers will down more than six standard drinks in a day and 33per cent of females will drink more than four. That may not sound like much but, according to Webster, that equates to binge drinking, particularly if that amount is drunk in just a few hours.

Of course, I haven't had much (or anything) to drink over the past week or two, since I've not had much money (damn phone bill).
