    I usually have 1-2 glasses of white wine or ciders maybe 2-3 nights during the week and then the weekend can widely vary depending on what we are doing. Today I had 1 drink with lunch, but last weekend a had a whole lot at a concert, so it varies but I voted 11+ because it’s probably most accurate on a regular basis.

    I also love a good margarita!

    Hmm, it depends on the season for me. During the fall/winter I generally don’t drink much at all, and I often have no alcohol for months at a time. Summertime? We often cook out and have friends over, and I will have several drinks each evening, sometimes averaging two a day. So, depending on the season, I could say zero or 11+.

    Gotta go with the vanished “None” option. I hate the taste of alcohol, no matter how mild. Maybe once or twice a year I’ll try something new to see if that’s the elusive alcoholic drink that doesn’t make me want to gag, but I’ve yet to find such a concoction.

    Couldn’t vote as no zero option. Have stopped while TTC and not sure I’ll start again. Don’t feel I need it.

    We probably have one or two drinks a few times a year. Now that we are trying to conceive we don’t drink at all

    I’m also a sauv blanc and vodka soda girl. I almost always have a couple glasses of wine after work. More on the weekends, especially in the summer with BBQs, pool parties, etc. I’m drinking a mimosa right now lol.

    I average around .005.  I have maybe three drinks a year.  I wasn’t always like this, but I discovered that alcohol really seems to make my allergies kick into high gear.  So I save it for very special occasions.

    I voted 1-5. I like playing bartender and tend to make a couple of cocktails a week. If not that, tequila, dark rum or some wine after dinner. I’m not too picky, I have a variety of reds and whites haha.

    I used to quite a bit when I was in my teens but now a days I only have a drink on special occasions. Most of the time I am as dry as a whistle but I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. Or if you enjoy an occasional drink, to each their own.

    I’ll probably have a glass of wine or a beer a couple times on weekdays and then might have a couple drinks on the weekend. So I’d say around 4? Occasionally, I may have special occasions where I drink more.

    morethanyesterday :  Yeah, my drinking habits are pretty similar to yours. My fiance and I go out to bars two nights a week on average, and I usually drink 3-4 drinks each time. Plus I sometimes have a glass of wine with dinner a couple nights during the week, so I’m probably averaging about 10 drinks per week. 

    My drink of choice is a gin and tonic, but I’ve been drinking more vodka sodas lately to help with losing weight. I also really like moscow mules!

    I average about 1-5 drinks per month.  I buy a lot of alcohol (especially if it sounds interesting like a new flavored rum or vodka), but I usually don’t drink it except for maybe the first drink to try it out.  For some reason drinking at home just never occurs to me and I prefer to not deal with the after effects and calories.  Some will say it is part of relaxing, etc., but I usually sleep lousy when I drink and I’d rather read, watch tv, or do yoga to relax.  So most of my drinking is confined to happy hour about once a month and I will enjoy a drink occasionally at a special dinner out or event like a ballgame.

    I do enjoy alcohol though.  I’m usually bourbon neat or on the rocks 90% of the time. I like a good old fashioned, too.  I also like hard ciders, amaretto sours, and margaritas (recently had a chili-spiked grapefruit margarita that was amazing).  I also tend to drink just a little bit more in the winter because I enjoy spiking my hot beverages with something – whiskey in cider or coffee, schnapps or rumchata in hot cocoa.
