The times when an average American consumed 90 bottles of whiskey a year
By 1820s, whiskey was sold at twenty-five cents a gallon, making it cheaper than wine, beer, tea, coffee and even milk..as an average American drank nearly 90 bottles a year. Americans were consuming 1.7 bottles of a standard 80-proof liquor per person, per week.In his book - Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, author Daniel Okrent attributed the raucous consumption of alcohol in the states to the boom in the “corn belt” in the Midwest which created large new supplies of corn.“In cities it was widely understood that common workers would fail to come to work on Mondays, staying home to wrestle with the echoes and aftershocks of a weekend binge. By 1830, the tolling of a town bell at 11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m. marked ‘grog time,English traveller Frederick Marryat in his 1837 book "A Diary in America," noted that drinking was synonymous with both celebration and sorrow.Currently, an average American consumes 9 litres of ethanol per year, per capita - which is nearly three times less than per capita consumption in 1830.Eastern European nation Belarus, which currently has the highest per capita alcohol consumption in the world at 17.5 litres of ethanol per year, per capita, is only consuming 66 percent of what Americans were consuming in the 1800s.

EMAIL - It's never "only one" (why the small things matter)
So, listen: It took you 20 years of bad habits to get to where you are – Do you think you're going to break those habits in a just few weeks or months?

I share this to remind everyone that if ALL you focus on is the physical changes, you're failing to notice all the concomitant positives that are happening.

Like I told my client: if you're being honest with yourself and working hard – the results *will* follow.

Everything matters – even the things you think don't. Just make sure you're focusing on the right things and making progress, regardless of how small or large it is.
