If a person consumes one drink every hour, he might not be legally intoxicated, but it still may be enough to trigger behavior he would otherwise not engage in. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's guideline for moderate drinking is up to one drink a day for women and up two drinks a day for men. The USDA also indicates that most people still retain some alcohol in their blood up to three hours after one drink.

However, when asked for the acceptable number of alcoholic beverages for a person to consume at a workplace holiday party, one third (34 percent) of the respondents felt that it was acceptable to consume three or more drinks at a work party:

  • 23 percent of the sample responded that consuming three to six drinks is acceptable, as long as they can "hold their liquor."
  • 11 percent believed that it is okay for people to drink as much as they want as long as they are not driving

45 percent found it acceptable to drink three or more drinks at a family party:

  • 23 percent of the sample responded it is acceptable to consume three to six alcoholic beverages as long they can "hold their liquor."
  • 22 percent believed that it is okay for people to drink as much as they want at a family holiday party as long as they are not drivi
