My DH has drank 3 pints of lager and large red wine tonight. I think this is a lot considering the kids were up and I wasn't drinking. We had been driving last night. AIBU in thinking it's a lot?

Sorry, can you explain what you mean by 'the kids were up and I wasn't drinking'? I mean in terms of what that has to do with him having a drink?

Also, what does driving last night have to do with him drinking tonight?

No, imo that's not a great deal of alcohol for a Saturday night.

*drinking last night not driving

Doesn't seem excessive to me for a Saturday night but I do like a drink (when not pregnant!)

Seems ok for a Saturday night

WorraLiberty Sun 26-Feb-17 00:34:11

Oh I see. I'm still not sure why drinking on a Friday night would mean that 3 pints of lager and a red wine on a Saturday night is excessive.

Does he have to get up early in the morning and drive somewhere?

Drinking on a Friday night and then a Saturday? And that amount? I wouldn't worry

Is this going to be a drip feed that he does this all the time?

Are you suggesting it would be OK if you were drinking?

Seems fine to me.

Nothing wrong with that. I often have more than that of a weekend. And in the week.

WowserBowser Sun 26-Feb-17 00:38:33

Yeah seems fine to me too. Unless there's more to it.

AutismMum24 Sun 26-Feb-17 00:40:31

My OH drinks most nights a few drinks, and I don't drink, I am always up with the kids and they don't sleep very well, I would only see it as a problem if it was causing an issue like he was hungover the next day and you couldn't all go and do anything? Or if he turned into a pig when he has a drink? But a couple like that on a sat night whilst the kids are in bed, normal life I am afraid confused

DonaldStott Sun 26-Feb-17 00:42:31

No biggie. 3 lagers and a wine. Not like it was a bottle of vodka. I'm guessing he had a lager early if kids were still up, so over 5/6 hrs. No, not a problem. But that's IMHO

Somehowsomewhere Sun 26-Feb-17 00:42:53

In the absence of any other information it seems fine to me.

Beer before wine feeling fine

Beer before wine feeling fine
Wine after beer...oh dear gringrin

A Saturday night? Meh. Doesn't seem a lot to me either. Presuming you don't have to be anywhere tomorrow morning...

BoomBoomsCousin Sun 26-Feb-17 01:06:40

If he was drinking the same last night and this is a regular thing, then it sounds like he's generally drinking more than is recommended from a health stand point. Whether it's too much in a social sense depends on how he behaves after that much alcohol, whether you can afford it, how it will impact the family tomorrow, etc. But just drinking that much isn't going over some hard line that he simply shouldn't do.

Guavaf1sh Sun 26-Feb-17 02:03:36

I also think that is fine but I'm waiting for the all alcohol is an abomination brigade to start up and I find those comments amusing

Trifleorbust Sun 26-Feb-17 02:14:29

Unless you mean three pints of lager and three pints of red wine...

How much wine?

Trifleorbust Sun 26-Feb-17 02:15:37

Oh okay, a large red wine. It's quite a bit - probably 9 units? It's not ridiculous as a weekly effort.

Weatherforecaster Sun 26-Feb-17 06:48:33

That's a lot if it's a regular thing. If it's once every few weeks or so absolutely fine.

Thefitfatty Sun 26-Feb-17 06:53:29

YABU. Unless he's falling down the stairs or stumbling drunk, it seems like a reasonable amount for a Saturday....

Trainspotting1984 Sun 26-Feb-17 06:55:05

No it's fine and normal.

sibys1 Sun 26-Feb-17 07:01:25

It would be too much to have every night, but a couple of times per week? Pretty modest tbh.
