My SO and I love to drink. Both of our families as well.
If we are out at the beach or pool we will drink. If we’re bowling. If it’s Friday night. If I had a really terrible day at work/school. If we are wrapping Christmas presents my mother and I will sip on wine.
We usually don’t get drunk, but we just enjoy a cold beer with our movie or card game.
If our budget is tight or if I’m up on the scale we don’t drink. But compared to some people, it seems like a lot.

@cls9q: I flip-flop. Sometimes I drink often, sometimes the same bottle of vodka sits in my freezer for 3 months. I don’t like getting drunk. It makes me feel horrible.

You might want to add a poll to get better results :-). I drink probably once a week, and very rarely is that during the work week unless I’ve had a really bad day.. If we go out to eat I will get a cocktail or glass of wine with my meal. The only time I ever have more than one drink is if I’m out with friends. I’m very much a social drinker and not so much an at-home drinker.

A glass of wine maybe every 2-3 weeks? My husband will have a beer a couple nights every two weeks or so… but that’s about it.

I drink often, but those heavy craft beers are my drink of choice, so I try to limit my intake b/c of the high calorie/alcohol content. I probably have maybe 2-5 drinks a week.

Add a poll yes!
My family doesn’t drink at all. FI’s will have a beer or glass of wine every now and then.
Fiance and I drink at least one beer each every other day. To be fair, we homebrew and I work part time at a craft beer bar so beer is kind of a big part of our lives. We both just REALLY enjoy it.
FWIW, I’ve noticed my weight doesn’t fluctuate/I don’t put on weight if I stick to one beer every other day or so.
We also live in an area that’s routinely ranked #1 or 2 in the US for drinking so there’s that…

@cls9q: I might have one glass of wine twice a week, but we rarely keep alcohol in the house and Darling Husband drinks one or two weekends a month. We are pretty infrequent drinkers.

We have 1 drink a night probably 4 days out of the week while we wind down after work for bed.

I don’t normally get drunk, but I do drink regularly. I probably have a glass of wine 2 or 3 times during the week, and on the weekends I may have 2 glasses of wine or spring for a cocktail. I always have a glass of wine or cocktail on Sunday Afternoon, as I’m cooking dinner. I really like to drink while I cook.

Added the poll. Bee’s love polls. 😉

There’s a big gap from 1 or 2 times a week to 1 time a month maybe. I would probably choose twice a month.

@cls9q: I drink when I feel like it. lol! In my younger days I def drank too much and too often but now as I am getting older I find myself drinking much less and typically only on weekends. We don’t ‘party’ as often as we used to but but we still do if there is something special planned. Now it is more bad day= glass or wine or just a beer or two watching netflix at home. We def drink when we get together with our families/friends, but nothing crazy.

@Laurenskii: Us too! We both currently have physical jobs and it just helps me relax. Not that any job isn’t stressful.
