            High-risk drinking was considered to be four or more standard drinks on any day for women and five or more for men. The study also classified high-risk drinking as exceeding those daily drinking limits at least once a week in the last year.

                Fuck this site. You can't cut and paste multi quote. Here, I think, is another quote, regarding the site that article was posted at.

                Daily Mail is considered a tabloid magazine, published daily. It is the biggest such publication in the U.K., with Ireland and Scotland editions. It is considered conservative and right-of-center, but folks from other countries such take note that those terms will likely mean different things in the U.K. than in, say, the U.S.
                A tabloid magazine is very different from a magazine that uses tabloid journalism to obtain high readership. The one doesnt necessarily include or preclude the other. That said, DM is not above sensationalist headlines

                    holy shit that's an idiotic definition of alcoholic. High risk drinking does not equal alcoholic.
