4K a year on liquor is a lot of money for something that people do not need (especially if you are a family that does not make much money), it means you are drinking at least weekly, which people should not be doing money aside.

A quick Google said the average Americans spends about 500 USD a year on alcohol, so even looking at it as a couple (1K average for two people), its about 3X the average.

Is 77 bucks a week liquor bill for one couple a lot.


Off the top of my head: no.

But what is their income?

That's what Google said, I don't claim to know the numbers.

it would be a lot of beer to be drinking, not so unusual if it's premium liquor.

I'd be more focused on what set of values they were teaching the kid. That kid in Texas, for example, somebody was giving him a lot of money to spend

I think at his age I had only recently moved beyond having to share a single shot .22 that would have had no ammo to shoot unless Dad bought it

Thanks a lot!! Before this I never realized I was a drunk. I was probably spending $100-$150 a week at a bar myself.

Money spent at bars adds up. Its why so many dive bars can last with a relatively small customer base.
