To have a glass of champagne every day at 5 o-clock when I start cooking to get a little relaxing buzz?!

I love it but worry it's a bit of an unhealthy thing, I look forward to my glass for about an hour beforehand, is this wrong?!

Catsmamma Tue 27-Sep-11 17:10:06

just one glass??

what do you do with the rest of it??

it starrts off with one glass. then two, then 3 then you are posting an aibu to drink 10 bottles a night.

Champagne? Are you for reals? Obviously you must drink 3-4 glasses of wine every evening to take the edges of the world. But surely you will bankrupt yourself with this dangerous habit?

It's different for everyone I suppose

I don't touch alcohol before 9pm but other people have different drinking times.

I would look forward to a glass of champagne if I could afford some everyday, for longer than an hour probably.

One glass is hardly going to be the death of you is it?

Get your kicks where you can I reckon.

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!

<eyes up emergency bottle of champers in fridge>

Anyway I actually prefer Prosecco to Champagne, it's considered to be far lighter on the palette by those in the know.

i drink every day, but only 2 glasses

bar the odd weekend binge

oooh proudnscary get you wink lol

It wasn't so long ago that champagne was a once in a blue moon treat, weddings etc. How does it remain a special drink if you drink it so often?

And doesn't the rest of it go flat in the open bottle?

Dont like fizz but you can't beat a bit of alcohol to improve your cooking technique smile

DP got a fridge magnet that says i love to cook with wine, sometimes i put it in the food! grin

OP YANBU. Life is too short to care. If it makes you happy and doesn't interfere with your life in any other way then why not.

And champagne won't go flat if you have one of those special vacu-stopper things.

Catsmamma Tue 27-Sep-11 17:19:09

it's not the same though, vac-stoppers or not.

I love champagne. Dh had I had a bottle of Veuve Clicquot on Saturday night and it was amazing. Have not found a prosecco to touch it wink

aCwtchIsMoreThanAHug Tue 27-Sep-11 17:21:12

if i had it my way, after a bad day i'd get tempted tp put a straw in the bottle grin lol

Champagne is way over-rated.

You should try a nice glass of Asti or Prosecco instead....with a maraschino cherry at the bottom of the glass.

Maybe you can decide if it's unhealthy or not by going a few days without your source of 'relaxing buzz'. Gagging for a drink from as early as 4 in the afternoon doesn't sound good to me...

LoveBeingAMummyAgain Tue 27-Sep-11 17:22:10

I miss a glass of wine whilst cooking.

aCwtchIsMoreThanAHug Tue 27-Sep-11 17:23:14

is this about drinking every night or that its champagne? x

Fisharefriendsnotfood Tue 27-Sep-11 17:23:45

I don't get why the time is such an issue? It's not going to be any better for you at 9pm... If it's only one glass that is..
