Well, doing a quick sum, two bottles of vodka over four sessions is about half a bottle at a sitting - am I right?
Which does sound a lot! I’m certainly not saying I’ve never done it, but for me that quantity would be a rare special occasion (college reunion stands out as an example), and not a four times a week thing.
I don’t think it makes you an alcoholic, because I think you would need - or at least feel the urge for - alcohol every day, but I think it does place you at risk of health problems, or possibly of becoming alcoholic, if four nights starts turning into five, and then six, and so on.
I can’t tell you what you should do. I’m far from teetotal, even though drink is probably contraindicated with all the other (legal) muck I’m on.
But I don’t have many vices (well, I would say that, wouldn’t I? ), and I’m not ready to give up everything I enjoy, so alcohol is not something I’ve made any conscious effort to curb - although budget has forced some cutbacks recently.
Like you, though, I might be a bit worried if I was downing half a bottle of spirits at one time. Half a bottle of wine, yes (still more than recommended), but I couldn’t do it on a regular basis with spirits, and would be a bit concerned.
Have you consciously tried to cut back? What happened?
