    @Bebealways:  I’ve always said, if you need rules to keep yourself from drinking too much, you have a problem.  I’ve been known to have a beer at 10 am, on a sunny day.  Generally I’m not in the mood for it, in the morning, but if I am, and I don’t have to be anywhere, there’s no reason not to.

    @Bebealways:  I’d say it’s fine! Your schedule’s reversed anyway. Someone else I know drinks sunup to sundown and is constantly drunk, I think THAT’s a problem. But a little here and there? Meh!

    Of course it’s ok.

    This was always just shorthand for drinking too much, i.e., all day, because typically and socially drinking was done in the evening. And people expected that there was work to be done in the day, which sobriety would be useful for.

    . as long as you dont START drinking in the morning and FINISH drinking at night LOL. i think thats where the stigma comes from. having ONE drink any time and thats it…sounds fine to me. but, if your first drink is at 9am and you just keep going all day….thats how alcoholism can start. to me, its not time, its how LONG you drink. does that make sense?

    @Duncan:  I totally agree with this. 

    I drink in the morning occasionally, always on weekends. In winter I might have a few caesars, summer a few mimosas. I don’t generally have a drink drink, meaning a glass of wine, beer or a gin & tonic.  I save those for after lunch….12.01pm to be exact 😉

    Champagne, mimosas, bloody Marys, Irish coffee, Kaluah coffee and peppermint schnapps hot cocoa are all acceptable morning drinks.

    The best beer I’ve ever had was at the end of a race at 9am. So no issues with it here! I guess as long as it’s not causing issues. or it’s causing you to drink and drive

    Baileys + coffee = great start to the day.

    I work a day job so it’s a rare weekend/vacation treat, but I don’t see a problem with what you describe!

    I think the occasional brunch bloody mary or mimosa is about as far as morning drinking should go. If you have to drink to do chores/hang out with your SO/etc then I’d say that’s a problem.
