I don't drink so that might cloud my opinion.
I don't think it should ever be the norm or ok to drink on the job. I would hate to think my lawyer, Dr. , service person even someone entering my data to be impaired by alcohol.
Yes i believe one glass impairs you. That us what alcohol does.

I used to have a glass of wine at work lunches when I was a PA back before I had children. I used to plan functions as part of my job, which included things like boat trips, shows etc. Entertaining clients and out of state or overseas guests was part of my job, which often included working lunches. I never drank more than a glass or 2 and I was most definitely the most sober person there.
Different industries, different standards I guess.

That thread makes me very home sick. Most French people would have a glass of wine over lunch.
Maybe that's why they all work till 7pm though
IMO it's a healthier option than a coke or a lemonade to be honest.

I barely have time for lunch let alone a drink with it. If and when we go out for lunch (farewell, birthday) most people will have a Drink, I usually don't as it makes me really tired and with so much to do after work with the kids it's not worth it for me.

Well I now feel loads better and less like a killjoy thanks all
I agree that it seems quite extravagant and also costly. I have always found it to be a sackable offence and it is usually in the code of conduct as instant dismissal I thought - so interesting to see the differences among industries
