- how much wine in a week ?
It’s not uncommon no, but half a bottle a day, every day, is a bit over the top yes.
30 odd units a week,every week, would be a bit of a concern if it was me.
But I probably used to double that at least, between 17 and 35 years old, so I’m not in a position to criticise really 🙂Posted 4 years agoTom BMember
2 bottles over 3 nights is fine I’d guess….would it prolong/increase your life that much by stopping? I’d rather enjoy life with some responsible drinking than be sober and extend a boring existence!
I reckon that me and the wife probably drink 2 bottles of wine a week on average, maybe a little more….I’ll often split a bottle of red to myself over a couple of nights rather than beer. Neither of us ever really exceed the weekly guideline (at a guess) and neither of us ever binge/get pissed.Posted 4 years agoKevevsMember
If you’re looking for a mean average to give you something to judge yourself on. Remember, the boozy lurkers and proper pisshead posters won’t tell ya! 😉 For a good moderate drinker, I look to my old man, never, ever drank more than 2-3 pints or 2/3 bottle of wine. Never seen him proper f**** up pissed. Held down ajob his whole life and raised a good family etc. But he drinks every night. works out about 35 units per week I think. It’s obviously something I’ve thought about!Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Antonio Pinto won the London Marathon 3 times and was well known for drinking 4 bottles of wine a week.
Jacques Anquetil won the Tour de France 5 times and was renowned for being a seriously heavy drinker. He could neck a full bottle of scotch a night *during a classic tour*, would drink a crate (whatever that means) of wine on a night out out of race season.
Mind you, he did die of stomach cancer.Posted 4 years agotheboatmanMember
3 to 4 bottles a week, and hopefully a few ales, if i’m on nights i reduce the wine and up the beer as i do love a breakfast ale before my snooze, and preferably with a cheeky single malt if i have some in. I do love being in booze, i’m happy to drink with friends and happy to drink alone, really i just love booze.Posted 4 years agotlrMember
The bottle I’m drinking says its 10 units, so 4 bottles a week would be 40 units. That’s high for an individual but well under the recomended limits if shared between a couple.
I’d say we drink between 3 and 5 bottles a week between the 2 of us. Don’t really drink beer of spirits though.Posted 4 years ago
