And you know, ain't that discrimination, to cut a woman's weekly tally in half? Why, I think a woman should drink every bit as much as a man can!

That is just the reason I use a bigger glass, that way I can't be labeled.

Doesn't sound like much but I am trying to stay within that. I had a cousin to die just last week from Cirrhosis of the liver because he drank himself to death. He was only 62.

I have it worked out to 1 5oz glass of port or wine and 1 2oz pour of Bourbon per day.

Does 750ml equal one "beverage"?
