The Implausibility Of Regular Alcohol Consumption

It irritates me this finding that alcoholic consumption of 1-3 drinks per day aids longevity greater than not drinking at all.

How can anyone only drink 1-3 drinks on a constant basis? This idea seems ridiculous, like having 1.5 children.

Anyone drinking alcohol for some effect doesn't stop at 1-3 drinks. They drink until they get the effect, and the effect requirement for onset increases as tolerance increases, so people end up drinking 4-5 drinks a night, not just 1-3. And they end up changing the form of alcoholic beverage (wine to beer, grape to grape) so they can continue this addiction.
