I have always loved wine, but it does not love me. I'm giving up, but dont want to be Tee total. Will i look like a raving alcoholic having a v&t with dinner rather than the 'civilised' bottle of wine?

Not at all, I am trying to cut back on sugar and so have v&t on all occasions.

I hope not, I drink gin rather than wine as it disagrees with me as well.

Brace yourself, someone will come on here and tell you you are potentially an alcoholic in the making.

Great, reassuring to know i will not be alone!

FIL was convinced i was drinking it neat at the dinner table and turned into a hardened alchie ????.

YANBU - drink what you like! So long as you don't force anyone else to drink it if they don't want to, I don't see the issue. Cheers!

Drink what you like with your dinner.

Although tonic dulls the tastebuds and your food might not taste as nice.

I enjoy a G&T or beer as much as wine.

I like a bevy but on its own , not with a meal .
I drink Two before my meal , water with the meal & then loads more after.

Crje im liking your style!

I suppose it is a wrong perception i need to overcome. I shall just have to practice lots.
