Take classes on something you've always been interested in.
Get a hobby that takes time and money.
Start a new business.
Write a book.
You are at that weird point in life where you have what you need but haven't figured out yet what you want out of life.
I could take classes on scotch.
My hobby is drinking scotch(and apparently watching fuller house), it costs money and takes time.
I could start a business that has something to do with scotch?
I could invent a new way of drinking scotch?
I can't read, seems like a prerequisite to writing.
I am bored.
Seems like you are pretty much telling me to keep doing what I'm doing......
Horrible advice....I expected better of you.
How many beers is .08 BAC?
Standard Drinks and BAC
For every one drink, your BAC goes up by about 0.02 percent, so reaching a BAC of 0.08 percent takes about four to five drinks. However, that does not take into account any of the various factors that contribute to how you process alcohol.

Try mixed drinks instead of liquor straight, it's more self limiting and much easier on the system. I drink everyday too but I mix 2 shots with 16oz of mixer. Rum and cola here but I've been using diet lately. Despite being kinda gross it saves 200 calories per drink. If I took straight shots it'd make me feel like #.
How much fluid can you fit in your body within a set amount of time before your system sends full signals to your brain? Exactly. It's the same concept as drinking beer; you can't go too hard too fast.
After a year or so, when you dont have a drink within a certain amount of time, you'll get anxiety, sweating, muscle twitches and some level of shaking. When you have a drink ofc it'll all go away. You'll be at class or work noticing the symptoms appear and slowly get worse with having a drink asap being your priority.
It wont be about fun anymore, you wont necessarily enjoy the buzz so much or want to chase it; just enough will bring relief and functionality in your daily life. Same for sleep, you'll need it to do so but then you'll wake up to piss alot and start suffering from those symptoms making it hard to go back to sleep so you might have another one for the sake of rest so you can perform the following day.
I'll have a double mixed drink to start the day with lunch an hour before going to work. It's not just a .05 BAC, it's much higher at first. I don't know why people never mention this but if you drink it quickly your BAC spikes to over .10 for an hour. Even though I feel fine because of tolerance and am fine, maybe even sharper because my receptors are balanced, I'm technically a DUI and possibly the 2nd level (.15 which is go directly to jail for 5 days, then 30 after court). I bought a cheap breathalyzer for $30 a couple years ago to play with and now I live by it.
Not trying to scare or dissuade you, telling you the truth. It sucks but it's life.
