Isn't that the recommended dose for a woman? And twice that for a man?

No way would I drink for my health, that is mostly hype. Sure, it may do some positive things re: heart attacks, but almost everything else it does healthwise is negative.

Who would drink if it didn't taste good and take the edge off his day?

The instructions for mine say 20, and I always make sure to check the clock. Using it without waiting can screw up the sensor.

That does make it challenging to have a "how drunk are you" party, but it can still be fun.

I've been using this one, I like the replaceable sensors, because with other models I've had in the past, by the time I need it calibrated, it's so old I can't find anyone to calibrate it.
