If I choose to drink at all I usually have no more than 2 drinks within a several hour period. On other occasions I have consumed more but my rule is to drink a glass of water between each drink so as to spread out the time and amount of alcohol consumed. Then for the last 2 hours I drink nothing if I am driving. I think it is important to be prepared for the unexpected and keep your senses at all times.

It depends on what kind of liquor is being served and if there is food being served along with it. If its hard liquor I might limit myself to 1 or 2, if its wine then I'll indulge in a little more and if I'm not driving then give me some elbow room.

"Surprised by the number of 4+drinks, seems to indicate how many people are feeling unhappy/frustrated with their current state of being."
Maybe 4+ drinkers are quite a bit happier, they stay longer at parties, etc.
In my case, we often, if not always, drink at parties since we're foodies and wine nerds. My friends are in the wine business, so we often drink several bottles (tasting, with food, etc.) over the course of several hours.
I'm personally surprised at the inanity of some of these comments; I was hoping EW readers were a bit more intelligent/informed/educated/well-spoken.
