Moderately heavy ?

In the dueling headline department:

From Medical News Today: Why Do Moderate Drinkers Live Longer Than Abstainers?
Researchers found that moderate alcohol drinkers are more likely to live longer over a 20-year follow-up than heavy drinkers and abstainers. Moderate drinking means consuming about one or two drinks per day. A report published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research stressed that the health benefits of drinking alcohol among older individuals are "intrinsically linked to moderation".
And, from Time Magazine: Why Do Heavy Drinkers Outlive Nondrinkers?
Abstainers' mortality rates are higher than those of heavy drinkers.

Guambat likes his chances against the abstainers.
