James Bond was a drunk

The research, published in the British Medical Journal, saw doctors read all of Ian Fleming’s Bond novels and note how much booze he consumed. In short they found that he usually consumed 92 units – over four times the recommended amount. The authors concluded “James Bond’s level of alcohol intake puts him at high risk of multiple alcohol related diseases and an early death. The level of functioning as displayed in the books is inconsistent with the physical, mental, and indeed sexual functioning expected from someone drinking this much alcohol. We advise an immediate referral for further assessment and treatment, a reduction in alcohol consumption to safe levels, and suspect that the famous catchphrase “shaken, not stirred” could be because of alcohol induced tremor affecting his hands.”

Bond is a fictional character btw but here is the study. Enjoy the holidays and Merry Christmas.
