    I don’t drink during the week and drink maybe every second or third weekend.

    There is no particular reason, other than I am trying to maintain my weight and find it a lot more difficult when including alcohol in my refular diet.

    Never, but usually have a drink on Friday or Saturday nights every weekend.  Sometimes both… but rarely, if ever, during the week.  I haz tireds.

    I usually drink (in moderation, mostly) most days. I am cutting back this summer because I want to lose weight.

    @Missy_Star:  I do drink a glass of red wine or a beer most week nights with dinner.  I think you’re fine!  And I ❤ Liz Lemon!

    @Missy_Star: My sister and I get together once a week and watch trashy TV, and we’ll each have a glass of wine. I work during the week, and she’s a teacher, so she has the night off. I make sure I only have one, or MAYBE two if I had a particularly crappy day. Never more than that, becuase I want to feel good when I wake up in the morning.

    My belief is, as long as you know your limits, have a designated driver if you’re drinking outside of the home, and do it in moderation, there’s nothing wrong with whetting your whistle during the week.

    A think a glass or two of wine at night is totally fine. If it had no calories I would every night, hehe.

    @ceebree:  +1 to what Liz Lemon said.

    I drink up to two glasses of wine or beer most nights, and sometimes will have a third if the feeling strikes me. It’s just part of my routine to unwind at night.

    I try to avoid during the week, but usually have on the weekends.  Although right now I’m in low carb mode so have been mostly imbibing vodka seltzers on the weekend 🙂

    @Missy_Star:  For me, it’s not just the calories in the drink. My ability to resistant temptation goes way down when I drink.

    I don’t because I am trying to cut down on calories so I’m only drinking water. Also, my body just does not handle alcohol well. If I even have one drink I feel crappy the next morning unless I guzzle water. But if I guzzle water than I have to get up at least once during the night to use the bathroom. Soooo olllldddd…. (not really but sometimes I feel like it!)

    If it weren’t for those two things though, I probably would have a drink every night. Now that I can actually afford “nice” wine and beer I’m really enjoying trying out different things. And I just love wine!
