I Never got asked to Volunteer :( , Secret is to start Drinking a "Little" when you are young (I started at 12 :woohoo: ) then Slowly build up your intake,
So by the lime you are going out with the lads to football at say 16, 12-16 pints of beer in a session no problem, then later in the evening Hit the Shorts,
Never had a problem B) , Well perhaps the odd Fight, but the other person always started it, I just finished it. B)

Alcohol intake came up on BBC Question Time last night. Near the end a woman asked a question along the lines of should MPs be allowed to drink in the houses of parliament which by the way also revealed that it has 8 bars (Holyrood has one which doubles as a cafe depending on the hours). Due to this practice, day as well as night, whilst they are effectively on duty as public servants and at times might be one reason some are seen asleep on the benches, I don't take too seriously the govt guidelines for 'responsible drinking' and so cannot even remember the recommended weekly units. At a guess 14 I think I saw on a can of cider recently (?). That is maybe about 7-8 pints a week.

Anyway regarding the survey. It seems they only tested lager and white wine although another expert named has said darker drinks cause more effects so that maybe accounts for their methodology.

Personally I don't tend to mix very often but when I do it will be scotch after beer which could be anything from lager through to stout. I might have a sherry before sunday lunch and then a similar wine after but not often. I can't say that is has bothered me but then I don't drink much these days. It is the volume I have real difficulty with not the level of intoxication. Paul is dead right about building up intake though. I remember a guy who told us he drank as much as 24 pints on saturdays when I was doing my coaching badge. The ambulance guy who was telling us all about alcohol during first aid when this came out was speechless so were a few of us when he went through what it does and why your pee runs clear after just a few drinks. I also remember one occasion out with my ex before we were even married when calling in at the parents of one of her friends, I got offered a brandy and then went out drinking beer as normal and was as sick as a dog after only a few pints. I never did that combo again.

Usually I either have 1-2 pints of my homebrew (Scottish Export or Caxtons Real Ale) which are both pretty strong or up to four glasses of red, white or rose wine, and that's it. I suffer from tinnitus and red which is my favourite affects it varyingly as does coffee through something known as tannins. Red wine and coffee afterwards gives me horrendous tinnitus that can go on for a few days and is as bad as a hangover and this has spoilt my love of going Italian or Greek. I have to choose one or the other drink really. The food dictates my palate to a certain degree and as white wine goes better with fish I am trying to eat more seafood as this doesn't go with coffee. Work in progress.

The only thing I know about red wine is that it contains resveratrol which is supposed to be a good factor in preventing strokes. That`s about my limited knowledge of alcohol! I prefer diluted fruit juices or that drink called Oasis! Oh...and a cuppa!
