Bartender, give me another please….
If you’re reading this article, then you’re probably a member of the 30% group — those of us who drink somewhere between .63 and 74 drinks per week. Yes, it sounds crazy, but according to some data parsing of a recent survey by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse, it’s true. To reiterate, 60% of people basically don’t drink and 10% of people drink more than 74 drinks, on average, a week (that is something like 2 bottles of wine or close to a 12 pack a day!).
My first thought when learning this factoid was, holy shit, I don’t really hang out socially with 70% of Americans. Am I missing something? Food for thought.
