Is having a gin and tonic every night o.K.?

Depends on how much: Gin is in the tonic. Safe drinking limits for women are no more than 1 standard drink (1.5 oz of 80 proof gin or other distilled spirits) per day, no more than 7/week and never more than 3 per drinking occasion. If you have a family history of alcohol problems, smoke cigarettes or have depression, you are at greater risk of alcohol problems. For men under 60, it's 2 standard drinks/day or 14/week. ...Read more

How big is glass: One drink of spirits such as gin would be 1.5 oz. If this is all very unlikely you would have alcoholism. However people with alcohol problems can be crafty. Their one gin and tonic may be out of a 24oz tumbler. But they can gladly tell everyone. "i just have one drink per night" hope that helps. Not to be cynical but it does happen. ...Read more
