    Less than a glass. None, basically.

    I had a sip when I was cooking with some last week.

    Other than that, I had a glass in late March at a dinner out.

    I do admit to binge drinking though. Not often, maybe 4 times a year... But when one of those nights does happen, I go overboard.

    Every couple of saturdays once my kidlets are asleep I will have a few drinks with DH (ie 2/3 wines) during the week I might have a glass if wine with dinner and DH might have a beer after a long day at work

    I think if you need it not want it its is an issue

    A couple of glasses most nights of the week.

    I'm not averse to wine at lunch when the occasions calls for it.

    Since being pregnant for the first time almost 3 years ago & becoming a mum, hardly ever.

    I'm pregnant again with my DS, but during the time I havent been pregnant with DD or breast feeding I would probably only drink once a month....sometimes not even that.
    I could take it or leave it to be honest.

    I used to be a weekly drinker before my kids. I would do a bottle of wine on a Friday or Saturday night no problem haha

    Now, I'd rather have a coffee

    In the first half of my cycle I'll often have a glass or 2 a night. The second half I tend to abstain just in case I'm pg. I enjoy wine, not to get drunk but I love the taste. It's extremely rare I'm drunk.

    About 2 drinks on Friday and Saturday nights, sometimes none. Occasionally 1 drink during a weeknight.
    Eta I like to drink spiced rum & coke or whiskey & coke, I enjoy it and hate hate hate beer & wine.

    Some weeks 3-4 drinks, others none. I can easily go a month or more without it. If i have a drink, it'll usually be at home with DH on a Friday night, a couple of wines or a couple of cans of bourbon, occasionally beer. Depends on my mood, sometimes I really fancy a glass of wine, other weeks I have no desire for it whatsoever. Last night I had 1 glass of red.

    OP, try going 2 weeks without it. I've found the more frequently you drink, the more you crave it. When you get to the 2 week mark, see how you feel and extend it a month and so on. i recently went 6 weeks without any alcohol and when I had one after that time it made me sick. If you're finding it hard to stop once you've had a couple, on a regular basis, then yeah, maybe you should consider giving it a break or cutting it out.
