    morethanyesterday :  I drink sporadically, maybe 4 drinks during week, sometimes less.   It’s usually sparkling sweet wine.  I do like fruit flavored margaritas too.

    frillsandthrills :  

    Yes, l discovered red wine in my thirties. I didn’t really drink at all before that, disliking the taste of all beer and spirits (still do) and not really having had wine . So, l set out to acquire  a taste for red wine, it being inexpensive and good here in Australia . Started with Merlot and now drink Shiraz. Love it  – and l fall in the 1-5 a week category. 

    I should add l did kind of have to work at it , it really is , or was for me , an acquired  taste. Friends were happy to help lol.

    I used to drink quite heavily – my SO is a recovered alcoholic and to be honest, I was kind of codependent and started drinking heavily too. Right now, I rarely have alcohol in the house or crave it – I hate dealing with hangovers, just not worth it. I will occasionally buy a bottle of champagne for special occasion, or a case of beer to drink at the pool during the summer, but it will last me for a week or 2.

    Maybe twice a month or so when we go out, I will drink – depends on my mood, could be anywhere from 2-6 drinks in the evening depending on the circumstance.

    I typically have 1-3 drinks a week just depending on what I have going on! 

    I prefer German White Wines, Italian Red Wines, and Spanish Rosé though if it’s not a wine drinking kind of event I’ll have a hard cider or a bourbon!

    I used to have a glass of wine quite often but drinking exacerbates many of my illnesses and acid reflux so now instead of 3+weekly its 2 or so per month.

    We can be delightfully crazy without alcohol.

    I gave it up a few years ago—empty calories.

    I don’t drink at all. The only thing I divulge in with my boyfriend is a small glass of Sangria. That’s like our weekend ritual. I don’t actually drink it on my own time, unless I’m at an event or its some special occasion. I tried vodka once and just one glass of it made me feel absolutely terrible, so I’ve only dedicated myself to drinking Sangria since it contains less alcohol. And Moscato, too. It’s just those two & that’s it.

    I used to drink a lot more than I do now, and my poison was tequila. Now, I’m a little more tame. I may have a mixed drink at dinner, but usually I’ll have a glass or two of wine or maybe a couple beers. I also like to sip champagne even if there’s nothing to celebrate. It makes me feel fancy. embarassed

    I have maybe 1 drink a month. It fluctuates.  At 31, I just dont handle alcohol or alcohol weight well lol

    my bf is a sober bartender and I work in a brewery.  I’m sick of being around drunk people so that kind of cut down my drinking, though not being able to share a bottle of wine with him probably cuts my drinking down a lot! Occasionally I love a good glass of sauv blanc!
