Cool How much can you put away?

It's fun every now and then to let loose with the wine. But how much can you drink. I think the most I've had is about 18-20 6 ounce glasses. But thats like staying up till 5:00am lol. Give me some good pinot and it's hard to stop.

Quantity was a lot more important when I was a lot younger.

I have a pretty high tolerance, a genetic fault, I'm afraid to say. I've had to give up hard booze almost entirely because I can go from tipsy to falling-down drunk in seconds. I wish I liked beer. I settle for the in between of wine.

No wine for me thanks!

A little whiskey or beer!

I agree with Andy on the quantity!

When I was younger drinking was what my peers and I did on a Friday or Saturday night.

I think today young people are much smarter about drinking.

Enough to embarass myself on occasion but i have a hard time staying up late enough to party harty anymore. Age/frequency/weight has a lot to do with qty too.

3- 4 glasses (6oz) of wine, over the course of an evening is usually my limit. If I have more than that, I won't feel so well the next day. I seem to be able to drink more beer though before experiencing a "heavy head" or hangover.

To much, that was my problem. The only alcohol I drink in the UK is the odd glass of cider.

Same here! Don't care for beer either. Wine is good though.
