A 28-year-old female asked:
Does drinking more than 10 drinks per week for about a decade lead to a discernible decrease in intelligence?

Hope not: Many of the doctors answering these questions probably drink as much if not more than this, and if they are still able to respond to you they are doing ok. All substances affect differing individuals in different ways however, and perhaps you have some generic predisposition to sensitivity to etoh. More likely there is some reason other than the 10 drinks a week (unless you meant 10 a night).
