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!

I'd just stopped bf and and OVERJOYED to be able to drink Elaine again! I'm sure it did me good to have over a year of drinking basically nothing, but I've missed it.

It will quickly revert to my pre-pregnancy habit of being pretty much every night. I do try to have 1-2 nights with none, but often that doesn't happen.

I try to keep the volume down tho, so a bottle would last 3-4 nights. I'd probably have a bit more at the weekend.

I didn't realise how old this thread was until I saw SP was on it with her old name!

No, not every night, but most. During cooking tea and polished off while eating it.

I probably have about a bottle a day, just under usually. I have a drink every day, occasionally have a day off but not often and usually the entire bottle has gone before I know it.
Should cut down really

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.

expatinscotland Mon 10-Feb-14 20:55:05

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.

Lozislovely Mon 10-Feb-14 20:42:47

I do!

ghostinthecanvas Mon 10-Feb-14 20:40:38

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

Bowlersarm Mon 10-Feb-14 20:17:43

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?

ghostinthecanvas Mon 10-Feb-14 19:29:46

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.

Hullygully Mon 10-Feb-14 19:21:55

Just one glass?

TheGirlOnTheLanding Mon 10-Feb-14 19:20:03

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.)
