New study finds that drinking alcohol is more harmful than drugs

Well, if life experience is to go by my 'in laws can prove that excessive drinking doesn't slow them down.... he can drink and work all day and night, and she has wine or brandy for breakfast, then continues on till bedtime.
Oh, and by the way, would you believe they own a pub!

When your drinking begins to affect your work and personal life. If you can't get to work because you're hungover or you won't go to a social event because alcohol is not served, I'd start looking for help.

If you say to yourself "I need a drink" and mean it in more than a cliched way. You have a problem.

Her dad still seems to be keeping good health but her mum now has diabetes and refuses to curb her drinking, she'll most likely be dead soon.

I would agree that the day that drinking starts to take precedence over the really important things such as family, work, household, etc., is when there is a problem. I usually have a beer or two after work and I don't see a problem with it.

Well, I've started packing stuff on my bench, looks like I'll need to have a spring clean out aswell.... seems to be some stuff I haven't touched since Adam was a boy. I have 75 jars of Tamiya paints, about 5% of them are probably near empty... and over 40 Humbrol tins, don't know why I keep these, I hardly touch them. I hope the wife doesn't mind me pinching the school lunch boxes to keep the smaller stuff intact.

Wife is out of town for the weekend. What shall I do?
I know... a three day wargaming con and then a judo club fundraiser at the pub. Very convenient timing. Now with my wife out of town which of you guys will be my date for the pub?

Well, just thought I would let everyone know that my wife, puppy and I have arrived safely at our new duty station in Germany. I haven't really been able to do much with all the inprocessing but we have a four day weekend this weekend so I'm hoping to at least get out and see the local sights. My wife was pretty mad at me when she found out that I had her pack only one suitcase and then half filled another suitcase with models Anyways, pics will be posted in the pics thread here when I get a chance to take them.

Judging by what you guys say here, i'm far from being alcohalic, guess i
need to try harder
Nah, i really like what Duncan said, so i'm going that route to see if i drop
any weight. No cocktails at night anymore except Fri & Sat.
So far it seems i've lost 2 lbs already
