Someone I know drank over 30 bottles of beer. Is he an alcoholic?

Someone I know drank over 30 bottles of beer. Is he an alcoholic?

Highly likely he is: Although you diagnose alcohol problems not strictly by how much someone is drinking and more by how much harm it is doing to their life, nobody can drink 30 beers in the course of a drinking episode without being HIGHLY tolerant to alcohol (it is equivalent to 1 1/2 liters of vodka). Anyone who tolerates that has to be LOTS drinking daily or close to it, and likely has the associated problems. ...Read more

Why is it when I drink even a bottle of beer I got sick?

Why is it when I drink even a bottle of beer I got sick?

Alcohol intolerance: Common symptoms of alcohol intolerance are nasal congestion and skin flushing (not a true allergy).

An allergy is possible to a component of the beverage— such as chemicals, grains or preservatives. Another rare cause is hodgkins lymphoma.

Does drinking a bottle of beer daily have any adverse effect on the body system?

Does drinking a bottle of beer daily have any adverse effect on the body system?

Probably not: If you aren't drinking more than a bottle a day and aren't taking any medicines that would be affected by the beer drinking and don't have a health condition that would make you need to avoid alcohol, then it is probably not a worry to drink a beer a day. In that case, the biggest potential risk to you might be some weight gain. A beer a day could give you some unnecessary calories. ...Read more

Could drinking a bottle of wine and a couple beers per night cause anaovulation and amenorrhea?

Could drinking a bottle of wine and a couple beers per night cause anaovulation and amenorrhea?

Way too much alcohol: A bottle of wine is about 6 drinks (a serving is 4 oz, = alcohol to a shot or a beer), & 2 more drinks = 8 drinks a night. This is way too much for anyone's health. Moderate drinking for avg woman (per world health org) is 1 drink per occasion. 3 drinks a day can kill as many platelets as your body can make.

Can you get botulism from a glass beer bottle if the cap was not sealed properly? I dropped the bottle. Can it grow in alcohol?

Can you get botulism from a glass beer bottle if the cap was not sealed properly? I dropped the bottle. Can it grow in alcohol?

Time ForDog Botulism: If they could, I suppose they'd be pretty happy bacteria!!
I don't think the alcohol concentration in beer would be adequate to kill Clostridia spores or live bacteria but on the other hand, that's not really the right environment for either to grow. So unless you dumped a bunch of dirt in the bottle and buried it for a week or two would much happen. Any doubts? Just give some to the dog. ...Read more

Ok: I'm not sure of the question but in general you should not mix alcohol with sleeping meds but one beer should not hurt you with the zolidem. You should also know that alcohol disrupts sleep so if you are having trouble it is a good idea to avoid alcohol. ...Read more

Girlfriend 43 takes permanent vicodin, sural nerve removed. She drinks average 6 bottles of beer a day. How does this effect her mental and physical?

Not well: Certainly the combination of both a narcotic pain reliever on top of 6 beers a day is not recommended at all. By definition, your girlfriend would be an alcoholic drinking 6 beers a day. I recommend she get into a certified multidisciplinary pain clinic where she can get her pain addressed and as well see a physician to treat her alcoholism. If not already, they will eventually cause harm. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes: Your partner should not be mixing narcotics with alcohol. She also dhould not drink that much alcohol as it could affect her liver. Chronic narcotics also increases her tolerance for narcotics.

You're smart enough to write healthtap. You really do care about health. I bet you actually don't enjoy the beer that much. Why not put it away? Best wishes. ...Read more
