    I've been drinking beer every day for 9 months (unless I go on a road trip). I'm going to cut back to 4 days a week because I want to try to lose a few pounds. How many days a week do you drink beer?

    I would say three or four days a week, but normally only one at a time.

    Is it too late to make this thread a survey? Your question would better suited for a survey.

    Personally, I drink about seven days a week, most of the time, but not always beer. When I'm on my own, beer 6-7 days a week but when I'm around my family, beer maybe 5 days a week, wine and / or cocktails the other two days a week, and usually wine and beer for this 5 days that I do have beer.

    (I recognize that my answer is too complicated for a simple survey, but that's why we have open threads attached to them.)

    I cut my beer consumption down to only on the weekends, and maybe not even every weekend. I've been trying to drop some pounds and doing a pretty good job at it.

    5 to 7. However I keep a close eye on WHY im drinking. If for any eeason I feel the need to just get drunk, I have the self control to just not drink that night. Keep myself in check.

    1 day a week lately. Was drinking up to 6 days a week fairly heavily, but as dumb as it may sound, I feel like craft beer saved me from that. Not very easy to drink a bunch of IPA's compared to Coors/Miller/etc.

    3-5 days a week, it depends. 3 kids and a wife it's kind of hard to drink every night, and when I do it's usually not a lot. 1 or 2 maybe 3 at most.

    I too found myself drinking too often (for me) so have limited myself to weekends and special events almost entirely. When I do drink its usually with friends and we typically split 2-4 bombers on average. I am also firmly in the "shedding some lbs" club too.

    4-5 days a week. I rarely, if ever drink enough to wake up hungover. So, usually 2 10% 12 ouncers or 3 7.5% 12 ouncers. I have a 2 year old and an 8 month old. Woke up terribly hung over once, but small children offer no sympathy in that situation.

    On average about 6 days... most weeks, 7 days. Basically I don't drink some weeks... but during the weeks I drink, I drink all 7 days.

    Usually just 1 bomber or 2 12oz per night though.

    Since I've started drinking every day I've lost weight because I eat less.

    As many days as a I go to the gym, so usually 6-7. I go to the gym to stay in shape and so I can justify my beer intake. If I'm being lazy about the gym or I'm traveling a lot, I'll back off the beer for a while to get back to where I want to be. While I don't actively count calories, I am aware of what I eat and factor in beer into my diet. 6', 163 lbs, down from ~185 lbs at my peak several years ago when I was drinking at the Portsmouth Brewery 2-3 days a week after work.

    Depends on how much I have to review. I typically only drink on Sunday and sometimes Saturday.

    I agree with this. I have lost 68 lbs since April 16th and have drank beer every day in this time. I feel that beer helps to regulate my appetite.

    6, usually take one day off. As I usually partake in a decent amount of beers 4 or 5 of those nights, I like taking the one day off in an attempt to avoid alcohol dependence.

    Mostly every day but try to make an effort to restrict my intake to 3 beers a couple of days but normally have four 12 oz's per day, thats moderation is it not?
    I'm sure it's somewhere in the middle of the road for most ba's.

    Five to seven days per week but most of the time I only have a single 12 oz or 0.5l beer. It is rare for me to have more than two beers in a single day. A wild day of drinking for me is four (12oz) beers in twenty-four hours and that is maybe a three times per year occasion.

    When in England, however, I've been known to knock back five imperial pints in a day but I haven't been in England in this century.
