Were you meaning to address the benefits\ risks to our health due to alcohol, or were you focusing on this 24 hr thing? Because I fail to see what that article has to do with our health . . . . .
Why would anyone want to drink 24/7 in the first place?
Funny thing is I wish to have a glass of red wine everyday, for health ya know, but I keep forgeting.
unless the info has changed teetotalers don't live as long as moderate drinkers...anyone know why? Excess is obviously an issue.The health benfits of wine are from a pigment called resveratrol which comes from grapes and not from the alcohol.
never knew there was a problem with alcohol and aspirin....How long til you can drink after taking aspirin? (Sisters birthday BBQ tonight... ) And I gots the headache.

My time line (over many years) sort of goes: excessive beer drinking, then bourbon, then single malts then (major life screw up) fast train to oblivion curtailed by bad health scare. It did me a favour cos I became more moderate in my drinking. Slowly stopped drinking beer and whisky but (unfortunately?) discovered the joys of wine. Generally drank a bottle over the weekends but then about 4 months ago decided to try and more or less knock it on the head for generally better physical and mental health. I missed the taste and the “relaxation” but then the other night I opened a bottle that had been in the house these 4 months. I drank 2 glasses (not exactly excessive) and felt well groggy. Worse - the next day I felt terrible and (I think) it gave me a day’s worth of depressive mood. A good lesson I think cos now I’m not missing it at all. I’ve got a really good quality red that was a present, sitting there... and I’m wondering what to do with it...
