I have decided to drink alcohol on this night because it will be the new year.
I have not drunk alcohol in many months and then it was very little.
So i have bought the following:
5 x 16,9 fl oz (500 ml) Beers 5,2%
1 x 23,67 fl oz (700 ml) Vodka 37,5%
1 x 50,7 fl oz (1500 ml) Fanta 0%
So I have done some research about how much of this I can drink tonight without committing sin. I know that drinking too much is sinful.
According to a website I can drink 4 standard drinks during one day and then it will be moderate. They have a comparison of what is a standard drink and it shows for e.g. that one beer or 12 fl oz is a standard drink.
According to that website I can drink 2,84 of my beer cans or 4 x 1.5 fl oz Vodka shots. I could also try to (drink 3 fl oz Vodka + 3 fl oz Fanta) x 2. One drink before I go out. Then one when it is New year.
In a sense 4 standard drinks feels pretty little.
How much can a grown man drink without committing sinful drunkenness?
Are there maybe some Catholic measurements of how much you can drink?
