What Type of Drinker Are You?

To determine what type of drinker you are, we have put together a chart from the National Survey to determine how your alcohol consumption compares with national Norms. There are three categories your drinking patterns could fall under. Average user, Binge not heavy, or Heavy user.

To start, please determine what your standard drink is. A standard drink is 14 grams of pure alcohol. This could be found in:

  • 12 ounces of regular beer, which is usually about 5% alcohol
  • 5 ounces of wine, which is typically about 12% alcohol
  • 8 ounces of malt liquor 7 % alcohol
  • 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits, which is about 40% alcohol
