Anyone else who can own up to a glass every night?

I'm really really curious. Does anyone else drink a glass of wine pretty much every single night or am I the only one? I only just realised this board was here so I'm hoping enough people know about it to get some answers. If not, I'll be tempted to re-post somewhere else because I really want to know!

didsnbump, I was happily finishing off a bottle a night for a while. I moved dr's and had to have a health check and had liver damage shock. At the time it didn't seem like that much - it slipped down so easily! since having the kids I can barely touch wine. I find it makes me really thirsty. I only drink it when having dinner, and even then not at home only when out.

Mind you, don't doctors go on the premise that everyone lies about their alcohol consumption, so they probably double what anyone tells them.

Oh, I'd have told him to go boil his silly little head, ghost, and hoik his kecks up at someone tiddly enough to be bothered by it.

I do!

I know. I was a bit shock
He was about the same age as my eldest, made me feel the same as I did when DS1 gave me a telling off for having a potty mouth blush grin

ghost so you only have 1 bottle over four nights plus an extra glass to make up the 5 nights? That's only about 11 units. Quite a bit under guidelines. I can't understand why your doctor thought it too much?

Mmm......I got a row from the doc on sunday for confessing my wine habits blush
I do 5 days out of 7. One glass most evenings so 4 nights to a bottle. I like a couple of spiced rums sometimes instead.

Just one glass?

I did until a friend told me there were about the same calories in a glass of wine as a donut.

Now try to stick to the weekends (except on holidays, when normal rules don't apply.)

AuditAngel Mon 10-Feb-14 19:11:30

I do.

PoshPaula Mon 10-Feb-14 19:08:47

Just one?!

Bowlersarm Mon 10-Feb-14 19:05:23

Drink wine 4/5 nights out of 7.

Trying to cut that down.

expatinscotland Mon 10-Feb-14 19:04:53

I would if I could afford it. I can't so I don't.

Jennyl131 Mon 10-Feb-14 19:03:23

yup, and the rest. grin

In fact, it must be wine o'clock now.

cheers! wine

(can we have a white wine and champagne smileys please)

I used to but realised it makes me grumpy/stressy to drink every day so now try not to (not to mention a bit bloated). That said apparently for women its beneficial to have a glass of red wine a day. Don't know why the poor men miss out on this but hey ho...

quertas Thu 29-Aug-13 20:37:51

Yep. One 'good one', which can be quite large grin

Treagues Sun 28-Jul-13 14:37:47

Yes I do.
We deliberately bought smaller wine glasses but then started drinking cocktails a lot blush

didsnbump Sun 28-Jul-13 14:35:30

I find my self having three glasses a night which is the whole bottle :-/
I'm getting moaned at by my dh now though as he thinks it getting to much.
I love to sit down after the kids are in bed and all the jobs are done and enjoy a glass or three of wine

I do wine Cheers

I like to have a glass while I unwind after work and get dinner ready. Just one unit though, I make sure my glasses don't end up being the extra-large variety. I don't see that it's a problem - if I don't have it for some reason I'm not unhappy. But it's a pleasant thing, and I don't think that level of alcohol consumption is a problem.

Yes I do and you're definately not alone! As my glasses are HUGE I now count wine by units rather than by the glass wink
