Big drinker, big risk: No formula, but a lot over a long time & you're certainly taking a big risk, esp. In women. Lose enough functioning liver cells to scarring & you get cirrhosis. A fibrosis score is typically calculated during liver biopsy (& some fancier liver imagings) to calculate how much damage a chronically inflammed liver has sustained, & its risk of failing /decompensating. Then you need a liver transplant. Read more

How long after drinking at least 4 oz of whisky is mixed drinks is it safe to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?
That's a lot: Taking 25 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will be like having consumed 1-2 extra oz of whiskey in term of drowsiness effect. If you have previously consumed 6 oz of whiskey without problem, this may be ok. However if you had never drunk this much, then I would be cautious with the Benadryl (diphenhydramine). Read more

How much can I drink alcohol without harming myself if it's once a week? How much quantity? Vodka, whisky? And is one time per week an addiction?
QUANTITY: Base behavior on what is wise. The different sensations when people drink = alterations of nerve function. The more you're buzzed the more you've put nerve tissue out of order. A little is okay, maybe relaxing; a lot and you pay for it after because alc is a toxin. Quantity varies with your liver function. If family members are alcoholic think genetics and don't even start.

Your symptoms may subside for a while, but they will definitely come back vehemently in the future. The only way to take care of this problem is to see a dentist. The sooner the better!

It is often stored: Most, if not all, glass-bottles have some lead in it, espcially thick, older bottles. Unless they break, lead-glass bottles are safe for storage purposes and should not pose health risk unless broken etc...So, your whiskey should be fine.
