Excessive drinking, according to the CDC, includes binge drinking — which is defined as four or more drinks on a single occasion for women and five or more for men — and heavy drinking, or eight or more drinks per week for women and 15 or more for men.
Whoever made up that definition never spent any real time in Wisconsin.
I remember the first time i drank outside of the state of Wisconsin it was in Ohio. Their drinking age had turned to 21 which meant for the first time in my life i had to deal with a drinking age. Because lets be honest in mid 1980's Wisconsin the drinking age was more of a suggestion and it still was 18. I was sitting down at the neighborhood tavern at the age of 16 by the way with barely any questions asked, bars had nickel beer nights, three drinks for the price of one etc.
So I go to this bar in Ohio and dont think anything of it I order a draft beer. The bartender says you can only drink "near beer" under the age of 21 which turns out is this vile 3.2 almost non alcoholic beer. This was to say the least a culture shock and I spent the night going to the bathroom every 5 minutes.
