    Do Americans drink the most? How US alcohol use ranks with countries (usatoday.com)

    For the TLDR crowd, I'll sum up...
    Top 10 (# of times respondents got drunk per year)
    1. Australia: 26.7
    2. Denmark: 23.8
    3. Finland: 23.8
    4. United States: 23.1
    5. United Kingdom: 22.5
    6. Canada: 22
    7. Ireland: 20
    8. France: 17.5
    9. Sweden: 16
    10. Netherlands: 15.7
    I don't know about you lightweights, but when I was in the game, I only got drunk once a year.
    Started (and ended) every Newyear's eave.

    Hmmm, i though Czechoslovakia had the highest beer consumption in the world. They consider it a food product and it's exempt from any Gov tax.

    Those countries all drink like crazy too.....they just to it to the extent that they don't ever really get drunk, drunk....

    In Germany, a bootful of beer is lunch.
    In Russia, a 5th of vodka is their very survival......for breakfast

    ...not too much different than my everyday! Lol
    (But still pretty different)

    Russian vodka comes in just as many vessels as they can find to put it in. Breakfast is what breakfast is. Drink, or go hungry.

    The problem with those stats is the the liver skews it all.

    The more often you drink, the better the liver gets at producing the enzymes needed to process alcohol.
    So in the long run, the less drunk you get for the same amount of alcohol.
    That's why alcoholics can drink so much in a day (and have relatively light hangovers).

    Of course, there is only so much the liver can take.
    So don't be thinking you can put your liver on a 'workout' program to get 'match fit'.

    :cheers:

    Beleive you me I'm trying, but after Saturday night it's going to be one night off followed by 2 6pack nights, then a drinking competition with myself on Wednesday.
    Not that I really want the 2 days at one six-pack a day, but the lawn needs water you see....
