Alcohol abuse

A nice review in the Lancet : Alcohol abuse in the critically ill patient. It contains an overview of what becomes of your body when you drink too much.

Right.. They mean you will become a smelly and mentally unstable begger when you drink too much.

They give a definition of alcohol abuse.

Alcohol abuse or harmful use is defined as a pattern of drinking that leads to clinically significant physical or psychological harm within a 12 month period.
The maximum drinking limit for healthy men aged up to 65 years is no more than four drinks in a day, and no more than 14 drinks in a week. For women and healthy men aged over 65 years, the maximum drinking limit is no more than three drinks a day, and no more than 7 drinks in a week.

I am glad Christmas is only two day, and New year's eve only one evening. It opened my eyes, so from now on I will drink only 14 pints of cask strength single malt a week.

There are many other questions that can be used as identifiers of drinking problems and many behaviors which indicate that drinking is more than just social. The challenge in making the call is that many, if not most, of the behaviors are often mistakenly blamed on disability or what you may think of as “just getting older.”
