All this just from somebody saying they do something in "moderation"?? To say that's a stretch is a moderate understatement at the very least.

There are alcoholics who Never get drunk because they are sipping alcohol in very small amounts from the time they wake up until they go to bed again. I think Winston Churchill was one such.

Stretching is good for you, in moderation of course.

Yes, that's a good example of the so called moderation that everyone talks about. I have cousins who sip alcohol all evening long but never appear to be drunk. A popular ex-president was a good example of someone practicing moderation as he popped an occasional jelly-bean during the day and had a few drinks in the evening. It's always considered moderate to the person who's addicted. Another (former) president was fond of consuming fast food and, although it seemed moderate, it led to him having a heart bypass operation.

Would you call that moderate drinking, or drinking moderately?

The most important change he made, since the bypass, was to stop eating processed junk, and he seems to be doing well. I think Jimbo said he became a vegan or vegitarian. When people don't change their diet after a bypass, their arteries usually get clogged up again.
