A glass or two of wine or gin 4-5 days a week, but at the moment zero.
Probably too much
I drink probably once a month on average, and even then its max two glasses as im still feeding.
Df used to drink to excess every friday and saturday night but after a big binge last october, hasnt drank again. He had weight loss surgery in feb so had to stop then anyway, and can no longer drink carbonated drinks but isnt really phased.
My mum drinks every single night and cant go a nigt without it its horrible abd really upsets me. Dads given her ultimatums, offered to help, straight out nagged her, tried to get her to go to rehab, but nothings happened. Its so horrible, she doesnt even think she has a problem. Its normally a bottle if wine every night.
So after all that, i would say if you feel like you "have" to have a drink every weekend, id do something about it now before it gets out of hand. My mum was anti alcohol whn she was my age. Im petrified of going down the same path.
Up until last month I was drinking 700mls of Jim beam or more a week, I was depressed and needed it.
But now I drink once a month or so. I'm just trying to cut down on the coke.
Usually nothing. If I go to mum or dads for dinner in a weekend I might have a beer or glass of wine. Monthly, I maybe have 1-2 drinks.
It depends on the kind of week I'm having!
Usually I try to limit alcohol to Friday and Saturday nights, when I'll have 2-3 drinks per night. Usually wine, sometimes a martini or beer. I'm also very fond of champagne or a decent sparkling.
The last few weeks DH has been away a lot and I was having 1-2 drinks per night. It helped me unwind and get on top of my sanity each day. In the short term I have no problem with this, but if I started to feel that desire every day something would have to give.
Now his travel has settled down and I'm going to try to lay off altogether until June. Wine and Weight Watchers just don't mix, and I desperately want to shift this last 10kg of baby weight
