In brief: Probably

There are many patterns to drinking.
Some folks drink heavily (binges) on the weekends, some people drink steadily throughout the week, a few people drink more only during the work week. That said, drinking more during the work week is more likely to be associated with drinking more alcohol on the weekend as well.
