the unglamorous, alcoholic side of 007



According to a new study by the British Medical Journal, James Bond is actually a “category 3” drinker, and likely would have succumbed to ailments related to alcoholism by age 56. To judge this, a Nottingham University Hospital liver specialist studied 12 Bond novels, taking notes on the famous spy’s drinking habits. His research indicated that Bond averaged a whopping 96 drinks a week (6 or 7 a day), which makes his sharp shooting and flashy driving skills even MORE unrealistic!

Not to quibble with your reporting, but the study suggests he'll die from the drinking AND his high risk job.

Also the study says that it takes 3 alcohol units to make a single drink. So it's actually closer to 4.3 drinks per day.
