The Sun reports: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3751940/Britains-drunkest-woman-downs-28-PINTS-a-day.html It's tragic, really. But also bizarre. Is it even possible to drink that much? I understand that chronic alcoholists may easily walk and talk and drive with staggeringly high blood alcohol levels that would leave any normal person either unconscious or dead. But I thought they usually consume something stronger and get to that alcohol level with less fluid intake. 28 pints/16 litres of lager is a lot of weight to carry home from the shop each day, and all that fluid has to go through her bladder at some point. 16 litres is three or four times the entire average blood volume of an adult female. She must be sitting on the toilet seat drinking. She has a child and you've got to cause your child all kinds of damage with that much drinking.
