    I rarely drink and when I do ill have either 2 bottles of cider or a couple of glasses of wine. That's all I drink.

    It's not a regular thing though very occasionally.

    About twice a month I'll share a bottle with DH.. so approx 2 glasses.. but yeah, those glasses don't mean 2 standard drinks.
    If I'm out (rare these days... oh so very rare lol) I might have a few more drinks.. I like bourbon and coke or a vodka with cranberry juice and lime
    I've only been tipsy a handful of times since having DD 10 months ago.

    We drink vodka in this household. Straight up, neat. I can drink half a glass and be ok. When I say half a glass I'm talking about a glass the size of what a latte is served in at a cafe.

    I might have a glass of wine or a bourbon and coke while preparing dinner. Not every night. If I don't have one, no big deal. Can go weeks without. If we are having a bbq or whatever then its a different story. I might have a few to get merry and once the kids are asleep, a few more but not enough to pass out and someone has to have their wits about them just in case.

    We are lucky that we know and get along with most of our neighbours so if one of us is under the weather and need to go to hospital there will be someone in the street to help out if it got to that point, not that we have needed it. Although we have had a couple of neighbours call in the middle of the night for help of some kind, be it a ride home after drinking at the local or strange noises out their window.

    If I'm just having a drink to relax 3 glasses of bourbon. More then the 30mls that should be in there.

    If friends are over and we are having a big night ill drink 700mls of bourbon and a few cow boy shots. I've been doing that since I was in my early teens. No idea how I haven't ended up in hospital or why I don't get hangovers.

    Wholly Moley! A bottle plus shots! I'd be passed out well and truly by then! My idea of a strong drink of bourbon is anything more than 1 finger width deep in a McDonalds coke glass. DP is about 2 1/2 to 3 deep and our neighbour is at least 3 of not (edit) 4

    I feel tipsy reading just reading that

    Since I barely drink just the smell of alcohol can do that though

    We drink vodka, not very often, about once a fortnight/every 3 weeks. I drink 1 shot of vodka in a glass of OJ or soda water with lemon, and I'll have about 4-6 of those in a night.

    I'm pregnant, so it's been a while... (disappears wistfully into dreaming of wine land)

    But anyway.

    Normally I'd have wine a couple of times a week. That could be anything from 1-2 glasses, up to half a bottle. Sometimes DH and I would open a 2nd bottle, but not usually finish it. Across 4 hours though... maybe. And, similarly to you OP, I wouldn't be drunk or feel anything the next day.

    If we're drinking with friends then I would drink more. At a restaurant there would be a few bottles between a group, and I don't think anyone would really keep track. Probably more than the recommended amount, but no one would be drunk.

    If on a girls' night out - which would happen not very often at all - then we would definitely exceed the recommended amount! But I count that as a special and rare occasion
