How many bottles of wine would you consider average per week?

dementedpixie Sat 27-Aug-16 23:01:51

I have 1 bottle on a Friday, 3 vodkas on a Saturday and sometimes one cider on a Sunday. I don't drink on any other night. Why?

Do you mean what would I think an average person would go dine during a week or what I personally would drink (usually one or two glasses at most)?

Why are you asking? Are you worried you (or someone you know) is drinking more than they should?

It's mad how little a bottle seems to be,
3 glasses!
I have half a bottle of wine a night but I think it's a problem.

Average for us individually or average for the general population?

Average for us at the moment is far too much, bottle each per night on prob five nights a week but once holidays are over bottle each three nights over the weekend. Still too much though but we enjoy it.

Based on mnet average is naff all, prob glass per week or something?!

Haha, thanks! And no, not worried just generally curious. I had two bottles last week and don't normally drink so was worried it was perhaps excessive?!

No not by our <indulgent> standards!

I could drink a bottle a day without blinking...but I dont.

DH and I share a bottle on Fridays and Saturdays, occasionally Sundays too.

I have one bottle of wine over the weekend, so 1 glass on a Friday night and 2 glasses on a Saturday night or the other way round.
My sister in law drinks a large glass every night, i have a friend who does also, but then I've got friends who will only drink alcohol on special occasions, weddings etc.

I think wine drinking has had an insidious creep in many peoples lives in this country. I also think the alcohol industry and supermarkets have been very skillful in how they have pushed wine. You see drinking wine seems more wholesome,more associated with healthy mediterranean lifestyles, couples, romance etc etc

Whereas drinking beer ,well its terribly working class down the pub. Spirits? surely for hardened alcoholics?

I have friends who often have a bottle of wine a night sometimes one each or shared.

Me..well i hardly drink. My consumption is likely a bottle of wine a week which will be split i.e two separate nights ,two glasses per night usually with or after a meal...err..and thats it,,,vvery boring.

Its nice and most of all a roubst south american red or rioja keeps the blood flowing in the pipes..

I have one glass of wine two nights of the week and maybe two or three glasses one night of the weekend so guess I probably drink about 2 and half bottles a week which is probably too much (according to guidelines)I do make myself have 3 'dry' nights a week as it would be tempting to pour a glass of wine every night once the kids are in bed. I never binge drink as I can't bear having a hangover.

I average a bottle over a weekend, so one glass on a Friday and one or two on a Saturday.

However if I go out then it increases but I don't go out that often.

DH drinks much more than me three or four cans of lager at least four nights a week. Too much really.

My average is a bottle of wine a week. if I have more one week I will cut down the following week.
