Light domestic really isn't American style - well I guess it is to a sense in that they bastardized what was mainly pilsner styles and watered them down to the tastes of the masses versus real effective taste

Keep in mind the major players are who they are more due to the complex alchohol history in the US, bottling techniques, refrigeration methods & transport, etc ..... over actual product quality

Also, this is no time to give half effort - you are drinking daily and drinking for your health .... way too important to leave it in the hands of multinational corporations mass producing watered down products

Look for regional specialties, college specials, etc - I was lukcy enough to live in Philly where Yuengling was the cheap, everday beer ..... leaps & bounds ahead of the major domestics and often could be found at bars for $1/bottle - just had to time it right ... drinking at home often cheaper than that and that's with the difficult PA alchohol laws

if you have a trader joes in your area check it out - lots of good options and you'll generally be around $1 a bottle (usually larger producers under a bottling contract with TJs) - you can find similar options at costco

where there is a will there is a way and as stated before, this is not something to be taken (or drunk) lightly

How sad that your goal in life is to be able to drink everyday. Alcohol is responsible for more sorrow then can be fathomed. You are classified an alcoholic if you drink everyday according to the DSM IV regardless of amount. To disguise the disease of alcoholism under health benefits is proof that you exhibit one of the classic symptoms that alcoholics display and that's denial.

You have a chance to break the cycle of disease in your family.

I think you will find your own answer.
I agree. Do this often and build up your tolerance.

A hangover only lasts for a day.

I suggest getting right back to it....a little hair of the dog that bit ya'.

Besides, nobody likes a quitter.

if you build up a significant tolerance, you are going to have to work in more hard alcohol otherwise you will be peeing all night long.

100.


You also have TERRIBLE taste in beer. Coors isn't even really beer. It's fake beer flavored water.

Bud light? Maybe AT A GAY BAR.

If you really want to be a REAL old-fashioned drinker kinda guy and impress all the old college drop-outs who became CEOs during the dot-com freakout, then you have to drink Heffenreffer. Bar bottles only, at bars, of course. Several per night. You don't need to count them, the point is to drink enough that you can't remember how many you drank.

I think it is as good a goal as any.

It shows ambition.

Alcoholism is NOT a disease, it's a lifestyle.

When a non drinker wakes up in the morning, it's the best they'll feel all day. You'll feel better as the day goes on!

Beware of the culture in which heavy drinking is considered normal, as the price many people pay down the road is staggering.
I once did 100 beers in a weekend.

Once.

Never again.


And I wouldn't recommend that anyone else try it either.
