"Time is never wasted when you’re wasted all the time” is a drinking saying that appears in many quotation collections. The saying has been attributed to Catherine Zandonella since at least 1997, but the exact source of the quotation is not known.
The website Thinkexist.com identifies Catherine Zandonella as an American journalist who was born on June 6, 1920; in 1996 or 1997, Zandonella would have been age 76 when she supposedly make a suddenly famous quotation about getting wasted. There is also a Catherine Zardonella who is a science journalist, but it’s unlikely that she made the quotation.
