    Every two weeks, when I play soccer at my team's home ground, I generally have one or two beers after the game. Once every couple of months I will have a few on a girls night out.

    Dh and I very rarely drink at home. We don't object to the concept, we just never think to do so! We play a lot of sport, we train a lot too, so I guess our social time is generally taken up by physical activities. Alcohol and exercise is a bad mix in you 30s!

    I used to drink a fair bit on the weekend though. I love a good night out when the opportunity is presented to me!

    I'll have a glass, sometimes 2, of wine about 4-5 times a week. I probably drink more regularly now that I've had kids, though in smaller amounts (ie I never get drunk). As a pp said a glass of wine when the kids are in bed or when we're having dinner symbolises that the day is over and I can put my feet up! I deserve that glass

    None for me. My last drink was before I found out I was pregnant with DD1 20 years ago.

    None. Stopped prior to getting pregnant and never took it up again.
    Was never a heavy drinker but since stopping, my health has leapt into the stratosphere as a result.

    I don't think I'll ever drink again now.

    Pre pregnancy, none.

    I would have a few when were out but that's it. I hate drinking at home. It doesn't give me any kind of pleasure or relaxation.. If anything I feel pressured to make sure I drink it all because its so rare I do drink at all.. Lol

    I suppose it's a problem if you think it is.

    Are you tired/stressed/over-worked in your life? If so, perhaps you being uncomfortable with your drinking means you subconsciously know that in order to improve things you have to do something to address the underlying core issues? And that drinking is masking the issues and preventing you from dealing with the core issues?
    Can I ask why you don't drink around your little one? Naturally I applaud not getting blotto around your child, but just wondered about in moderation. I will have a glass of wine with dinner occasionally and my DD knows that it is a special grown up drink.

    I have between 0 and 4 glasses of wine/bubbles in a week.

    When not pregnant I enjoy 1 - 2 glasses of really good wine at night once the kids are done and DH and I having dinner. I'd like to say we don't do it every night but we do. We would rarely drink anymore than that. But I do enjoy a glass or 2.

    I have a bottle of rum with about 1/5 left in it that's 3 or so years old, so to answer the question; usually none.

    Like pps have said, I think it's a problem if you feel you NEED it, not just WANT it.
