Do You Go Through Good Wine Withdrawal?

Just curious. For the past few years I have found that if I go a few weeks without drinking serious wine, I get moody and a true craving for it -- much the same way I would crave a cigarette when I used to smoke. (Of course, ideally I would drink serious wine several times per week, but budget and caloric intake dictate otherwise...)

  1. Absolutely. While my wife was pregnant, I've never drank less wine in my life and now I'm left with a serious storage issue since I wasn't able to temper my purchases ;)

    Now, that she can drink (a little) it's better, but instead of enjoying a bottle or two during the week, I open bottles on the weekend.

    1. heheheheh! We try not to let that happen...

      1. Oh, I do, absolutely.

        After a couple of weeks without, it's like a craving, and I will not be denied.
