    I probably drink once a month, and when I do its a glass or two of champagne.

    Having said that I am the world's cheapest drunk so I probably can't remember if I've had more than a couple of glasses!

    I haven't had a full drink for almost 20yrs! I have sips here and there for toasts etc but I never found a drink I like. I don't like wine, beer, champers, spirits and it doesn't really leave much. DH thought he'd hit the jackpot when he married a permanent designated driver.

    On a serious note, I do worry that I'd become addicted and start tucking in way too early in the day and way too much. That is just my feeling about me, not having a go at anyone, no issues with drinkers just fearful of my own nature.

    When I'm not pregnant we have social drinks with friends at least once a fortnight/ once every 3 weeks, I'll prob have 4-6 drinks depending.

    Same as Witwicky except I prefer white wine.

    I only had a few sips tonight because the bottle I opened tasted like armpits. Boo.

    None anymore. Last got tipsy in March with my Dad when he was visiting. I used to, before my son (2.5).

    If you want to cut down, maybe try two alcohol free days a week. It may be hard though it's no doubt just breaking the pattern/habit. I work as a drug and alcohol counsellor

    Rarely however I have been pregnant/breast feeding for the bulk of the last 4 years. However a slab a week is definitely well over the currently health recommendations for drinks per week for a female.

    By the way...what's a slab?
    Lol - I have definitely noticed with threads regarding alcohol consumption - you might find not too many fessing up to drinking more than the 'norm'.

    I probably drink too much white wine.... Oh but it's so yummy!

    My body processes alcohol extremely poorly and I tend to get a nasty hangover feeling regardless of how little I drink so naturally I try to give it a wide berth. It's not worth feeling like crap over for me when I need to get up and function the next day. Plus, I find most alcohol tastes a bit gross unless its sweetened up with juice or chocolatey stuff.

    I enjoy a cocktail or two for a special occasion though

    I looooove my wine time. Usually a glass when DH gets home (if kids under control) and then another with dinner. I'd drink more if I wasn't up half the night with kiddies.
