A Week in the Life
A co-worker challenged me with a simple question: "How much do you drink, really?" Undissuaded by my assurance that I drink a fair amount, he made a simple request: for me to keep a log of my drinking, for a month.

This is the result of the first week of this log. For simplicity's sake, a bottle of wine counts as four glasses, a pint of beer counts as one drink, and each shot in a mixed drink counts as one. I make all my drinks as doubles. The amount of money I spent on the drink follows each drink. An * denotes something purchased at a bar or restaurant, while a # denotes drink someone else bought for me. For each drink I poured myself, the price appears on the first drink consumed from the bottle. The time spent drinking appears next to the header. Blood alcohol content calculated using this calculator, courtesy of R U Pissed?.
