So a friend and I were talking about the good old days of college....5 years ago, and had a discussion. Kind of Psychological and just wanted other peoples opinion to get more insight into a tipsy dispute. When you are young and drank only to get drunk...every night. When you got a 24 pack, did you find you drank less when the 24 pack was broken into two 12 packs or did it not matter. I was arguing that if you see 24 bottles in front of you and you drank 6 you would say "meh, only drank 25% of a box". If you had that 24 pack broken into two 12 packs you would say, "wow, I drank half a box" I should watch how quickly I drink. We got into an argument that the two 12 bottle per case pack is better than the 24 pack case to lower alcohol consummation just to get drunk or it did not matter since after you drank six bottles you did not care anymore. We did not factor in the environment, a.k.a peer pressure, in our discussion. Again we are tipsy and have a bachelors in psychology. Kind of wondering what others thought in the pub. I live in PA and went to Penn State in PA if that matters. Do you feel that how much beer you see may effect you now or then, or your kids now, how much you/they drink?
