I hardly ever drink, I grew up in a pub and never really took a fancy to it. My parents both drink quite a bit since we left. My brothers and sisters are quite like me are hardly drink it.
I have it in my house but i use it mostly for cooking. H drinks probably every weekend, but that has reduce loads as hes got older. maybe a couple of cans of an evening. If hes going out he will drink quite a bit, I'm always driving so is never really bothered him! BUT we have a wedding in April and I'm thinking I may drink and he can drive for once! I know he will pester me if I don't drink enough though as it would be a waste as he could drink.
I know my friends will have a few glasses in the evening. Sometimes if I have a drink I will be a small bottle but thats it really.
How much do you drink?

Before C, I'd drink just about every weekend.
These days it's pretty rare for me to drink, even on a weekend if we're at home I'm not that bothered about having a glass of wine or anything even if MrDD has a drink, and if we're going anywhere I'm often driving - although if I'm away with work I probably drink a few glasses each night I'm there!

Too much again, sometimes 5 nights lol
Very rarely since i've started doing slimming world. Too many syns and i could use them on food.
Before slimming world though i'd probably only have 1 or 2 glasses of wine a week, since i was 21 and got ill in Magaluf from drinking too much Malibu and coke, i can't drink a lot anymore.

Before I started watching my wiehgt I could easily sink a bottle or 2 of wine every evening and more of a weekend. I've been known to drink 3 bottles to myself on a Saturday and then again on a Sunday. It was disgusting. Now I've stopped drinking during the week at home and will only drink if we are out and I fancy a glass of something, not for the sake of it.
My H drinks every night. He tries not to, and has cut down a hell of a lot but still has a couple of cans or bottle of cider. He was on the JD all day yesterday.

Before I had kids, i was everynight (and all day and night saturdays), I was 18 though, so it was part of the job description...
It changed to just weekends, but now I don't drink unless i'm going out.
It varies, I can go weeks without touching a drop but then some weeks I will have a glass of wine every night. If I go out I tend to drink quite a bit, but if someone said I'd never drink again it wouldn't upset me too much

I'm a bit like that, I'd rather use my calories up on a takeaway then the wine!

I try not to drink on a school night now, and certainly since having Little Miss I think I drink less.
We have gin every Friday night, though it's usually only 2 (strong ones) and maybe some wine with dinner Sat and or Sun.
That said, this weekend has been particularly boozy! I was out Friday night and had a fair bit to drink and then Saturday night we cracked open our bottle of cachaca and made caipirhinas (had 3). And last night we had wine with dinner and then later a G&T.

Well, pregnant at the moment, but since having Miss CV, it was rarely more than a bottle of wine a week, and often not quite a bottle. Before her, it would have been considerably more but my parents are alcoholics, and I know that sometimes I'm not a very nice drunk, so I always knew my limits, and wouldn't have been properly drunk for a *very* long time.

Two glasses wine on Saturday night and either one glass on a Thursday night or one on a Sunday night.
11/03/2013 at 14:49
Definitely on a Fri and Sat. We stopped midweek drinking altogether when dieting but it has crept back in. I think we really need to stop again to get to the weights we want to be at.

Does anyone drink the WW wine or similar?!
11/03/2013 at 15:36
Too much!!! Probably 4 or 5 nights on a naughty week, 2 or 3 on a good week.
11/03/2013 at 15:37
I haven't had a drink since before i ws pregnant and I'm too scared now that one drink willl go straight to my head! Also can't bear the thought of looking after E whilst hungover, it's hard enough as it is. I was never a big drinker though to be fair and I haven't missed it at all so it doesn't really bother me. I'm sure I will at some point but it's over 18 months now without any
11/03/2013 at 16:04
Once a week usually, but the past few weeks its been twice a week
I wouldn't wash my feet with ww wine, its like water, if you are on a diet vodka and a diet mixer is something like 1pp, ww wine is just like shloer u need propper full fat wine

I don't mind light wines but wouldnt have it out of choice!
I enjoy a drink but I am a binge drinker. I can go weeks without having a drink but if we go out I proper go for it.
This weekend H drank wine sat night but he drinks red so I didnt have any, but I did have 2 JD's and yesterday a glass of champagne. I probably won't drink for the next 3/4 weeks as I have no reason to x

I never drink at home, only ever if I'm our clubbing which is probably 4 times a year maybe!!
I can't eat food and drink alcohol, I get terrible stomach cramps if I do.
11/03/2013 at 16:45
Hardly ever, maybe a couple of times a month at most. I haven't drank as much as I used to prior to having the kids and I'm such a lightweight now!
11/03/2013 at 17:01
Not much to be honest. Certainly less than a glass of wine a week - maybe a glass of wine a month? I rarely drink at home unless we have people round for a meal, and then it's usually only one glass of wine. I don't like beer, so don't bother with that. H isn't drinking much due to his running, so that may account for the cupboard full of wine/booze that never seems to go down!
I'll sometimes have a glass of wine with a meal out, but often not fussed. I almost never drink to excess, and have only been drunk once. I threw up and then slept it off.
