    I ticked 1 x a month. Sometimes its more though like at the moment I have Christmas parties each weekend.

    Basically I only drink when I go out on proper nights out, posh meals or parties/weddings. So if I have a quiet month with free weekends I wont drink at all that month. BUT when I do drink I drink quite a lot, I don’t get wasted but get tipsy/drunk. Therefore according to studies what I’m doing (irregular heavy-ish drinking) is actually worse than your regular but light drinking.

    I usually drink around once or twice a fortnight. We go and see our friends once every fortnight, so I will have a couple of drinks then, and if my mum and sisters come over to visit on the weekends, or if we catch up with other friends on the weekends I will drink then as well.

    Oh man, you guys would consider me a lush.

    I drink probably 5-6 days a week.  Majority of the time, it’s only one drink a night.  I usually have a glass of wine or a beer with dinner.  FI and I brew our own beer and hard cider (and we have a kegerator).  I don’t drink to get drunk, but rather because I enjoy how what I’m drinking tastes.

    @dancingriss:  Yep, pretty much every night.  1-2 glasses of wine.  I was feelin’ a little alone in this string till I saw your post.

    Varies, but averages out to 1-2 times a week. I drink socially and I like to have a nice glass of wine or beer if I make the effort to cook myself a nice meal. But when I do drink it’s usually just a drink or two. I’m SO OVER getting drunk. It’s fun at the time but my post-25 year old hangovers just aren’t worth it.

    My man is a lighter drinker than me but he enjoys it. He sometimes talks about giving it up for religious reasons but that generally lasts only a week or so.

    I find that I drink a lot more often now that I live with my SO.  For me, drinking has always been a social activity, and I find myself often having a glass of wine while cooking dinner or sitting around.  I would say that I almost never have more than 1-2 in a day though.
