Let’s Talk About Drinking For A Second
Seeing as we’re a men’s blog, we tend to occasionally praise the exploits of those who drink a bit too much. Drinking is manly, after all. (Just ask Don Draper.) But should we really be making it out to seem so glamorous and fun of an activity?
In response to a new study that found alcohol actually causing more problems overall then harder drugs like heroin or crack cocaine, the folks over at AskMen.com have decided to ask their readers “Do You Drink Too Much?” And, seeing as this topic is currently at the forefront of our minds — seeing as we probably do drink too much — we thought we’d also post the question to you folks.
AskMen.com breaks the drinking into four categories.
– Social drinking: Consisting of no more than two drinks a day.
– Heavy drinking: More than four drinks in “one session.”
– Problem drinking: Where alcohol begins interrupting your normal flow of life, making you skip work, etc.
– Alcohol dependency: You cannot function without a drink.
Us? We tend to fall somewhere in between the first two categories; some of those “social” nights tend to great pretty “heavy” pretty quick. But is that too much?
Now, we all know that trying to quantify how much is too much is a very personal thing. My uncle can down about 10 beers without being affected (except, you know, the destruction he is doing to his liver) while my 100-pound cousin takes a single shot and is down on the floor. But, the question still remains, how much is too much? What do you all think about this?
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
