I think there is nothing wrong with having say, 1-2 drinks a day especially if it is part of a meal. Getting drunk everyday (like a six pack or a whole bottle of wine) is a very bad idea.
Don't be a buzz-kill!

if you drink a 6 pack a day or a bottle of wine a day then in very short order neither will get you drunk .... trust me on this ... a 6 pack was nearly a primer, if you wanted any kick out of a sixer you'd need to drink the necks out of the bottles and supplement with some booze in there

so it's basically horrible advice - you can't get functionally drunk everyday if you drink a 6 pack everyday

Never again.

And I wouldn't recommend that anyone else try it either.
Why? That isn't a lot.

very good point - drinking & driving could put you in place where maintaining your absitence wouldn't be your decision anymore - look at what happened to Beecher on Oz

Do what you want since you seem to have your mind made up. Hopefully, you don't end up an alcoholic or with health problems down the road. Drinking and/or getting drunk isn't all that glorious anyway. Maybe you'll end up learning the hard way like many people. Good luck with that.

I started out having about 7-10 drinks a day when I was 16. Vodka during the lunch hour then beer at night. Then right before I got into massive trouble I was drinking somewhere around 1/5 of vodka a day at age 21. So you have some catching up to do.

If I was you, I would start making up for lost time. I'd start with a strong salty dog ( or any combination of vodka and fruit juice) at around 10 am in the morning, drink 3-4 Bud light w/limes throughout the afternoon, then at around 6.30-7 finish the night off with either a sixer of PBR or a tall can or two of Schlitz V.S.L. (very smooth lager for the unschooled). After a long day of drinking I would advise staying away from the hard liquor at night. Malt liquor is cheap and will do the job.

Make sure to smoke a couple bowls of bud (marijuana) throughout the day to keep you mellow, and have a pack of Marlboro Red 72s at all times.

Word of advice: Buy Schmirnoff vodka. It is cheap enough that you can easily afford it, yet is high enough quality that you won't mistake it for rubbing alcohol. Stay away from Schmirnoff Black (100 proof) nothing good ever comes of drinking 100 proof vodka, trust me. Also if you run out of vodka and the liquor store is closed, or you are broke. Drink the rubbing alcohol.

Have a nice life.
