Interesting fact about alcohol (Read 223 times)

Fear is a Liar

    I heard on the radio the other day that men over drink alcohol from ages 30 to 50, and women over drink from 51 to 70. Reminds me of a line in a country song that goes " you're a lot less fun since I quit drinkin' ".

    I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!

      Comparatively speaking, I did most of my over drinking as a yute.  But between the ages of 30 and 45, I chose quality over quantity, so the end result was the same, ha-ha!

        I guess men become depressed after they've acquired house, wife, kids and dog.... And the women start drinking more past the age of 50 because... they're past 50? (ewww... no offense, Beth. You look like you're 38. :-)). I'm three years away from becoming a drunk...

          I stopped drinking at 38.  I drank enough to carry me through 50 though.  Wink

              I also got my heavy drinking out of the way when I was younger.  I was just carb loading for my running career that would come later. Smile
