This is excessive: and is the definition of a drinking binge. The recommended safe dose of alcohol is no more than 2 standard drinks per day (which would be about 60 ml of whiskey) and no more than 14/week, and NEVER more than 4 drinks at one occasion. You are drinking the equivalent of 6 drinks on one occasion, and this can cause damage to liver, pancreas, GI tract, heart and especially BRAIN. Talk to your doctor
