Drinking.. how much?

Iv been looking over the internet but can't find what is an acceptable amount to drink over a week (one night usually) without causing damage. Lately everyone is having a party or something and I can be drinking up to 3 times a week (usually 6-8 cans.. mostly 6) of stuff like smirnoff or jim bean.

I want to stop drinking every week don't want to become an alcholic. Am I doing damage (liver?) and how much do the rest of you guys go through in a week?

Oh just found this for the rest of ya..

No more than 4 standard drinks a day for a male. After that you are doing damage.

If you go 2-3 days without drinking you're weak! The only time we stopped drinking up in the Gold Coast was to sleep (or pass out) lol
