    Some information for you!
    I could get hammered every day and I'd still be smarter than you, so I don't think you should be schooling me on alcohol.

    Not exactly. Well, unless you consider yourself a king that is.

    Proverbs 31

    4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

    5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.

    6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

    7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

    This poll has several problems...the biggest of which is....what are you trying to quantify? I drink almost every day....I usually have a beer with dinner.

    Jesus drank wine. He turned water into wine.He did not turn water into more water. He did not make lots of purified crystal clear water from water ,he turned water into lots of wine so that people can drink it. Noah and many other people in the bible also drank wine. So this idea that Christianity prohibits alcohol is absurd. Yeah there are scriptures that basically say not to become addicted or become a drunk. But there is no ban on drinking booze.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Re: How often do you drink alcohol?

    Hey uh Alfons:

    Why Do Heavy Drinkers Outlive Nondrinkers?

    One of the most contentious issues in the vast literature about alcohol consumption has been the consistent finding that those who don't drink tend to die sooner than those who do. The standard Alcoholics Anonymous explanation for this finding is that many of those who show up as abstainers in such research are actually former hard-core drunks who had already incurred health problems associated with drinking.

    But a new paper in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research suggests that — for reasons that aren't entirely clear — abstaining from alcohol does tend to increase one's risk of dying, even when you exclude former problem drinkers. The most shocking part? Abstainers' mortality rates are higher than those of heavy drinkers.

    Dude, nobody is trying to judge you for drinking or not drinking. At least not me.
    So, no need to be suspicious.

    I believe it might be due to the will to live aside from such benifits of drinking lightly can have on heart disease
