    Hardly ever. Since DS was born (12 weeks) I've had 2 glasses of wine when we've been out for dinner, but it's a pain as I have to organise a bottle of EBM for DS while we are out because I won't breast feed him when I've had a drink.

    Before I was pregnant, I occasionally (maybe once or twice a month) had a glass of wine with dinner.

    To answer your question, 3-4 drinks every day is not normal IMO. If it was once a week maybe, but getting through a carton a week is excessive to me.

    I really haven't had anything to drink in just over 8 years. If I do it's for a special occasion and it has to be something like sweet cider or a chocolatey cocktail otherwise I won't bother.

    My aunty and uncle used to put away a bottle of wine a night on week nights and more for weekends or special occasions and I thought that was probably a bit much.

    I went from drinking a couple of bottles of wine every weekend to pretty much nothing after having my kids.
    After my first was born and even after I'd stopped breastfeeding 6 months after her birth I still wasn't that interested in drinking. Kids changed me a lot. I'm boring now lol

    Occasionally i'll have a glass of wine or a beer on a week night, depending on my day. Will prob have 1-3 drinks on a Saturday night to end my working week.

    I've recently become a white wine drinker - a glass or two most nights. A bottle will last me 3 nights if DH doesn't touch it!

    Prior to this, I used to never touch alcohol during the week, and very minimally on weekends. Even when I was younger and childless I wouldn't drink during the week, but I'd sometimes make up for it by having quite a few on weekends.

    I've had a lot of stress and anxiety lately due to some friction with our next door neighbours. I think the wine has really helped wind me down when I get home from work. We are moving next week, so with a change of environment I might drink less often.

    I love my white wine!! SO and I have two glasses most nights. One while cooking dinner and chatting, and one with dinner.

    I wish wine bottles were just a widdle bit bigger, one more glass after dinner would be perfect

    Nothing. I don't drink. Only on the rare special occasion like bday etc n then would be maybe 1-2 drinks unless visited my BFF n we will have a few drinks together winding down once kids are in bed



    ETA- I suffer from a drinking problem & find it easier not to drink unless with my BFF or special occasions cause once I start I find it hard to stop. If I'm at the pub I try to keep up with everyone else & end up wasted now I just Don't go to pub I was drinking about3-4 bottles wine & 6-10 beers every night. Not a pretty place for me to be & since getting myself out of that habit & place I now rarely drink
