How often do you drink alcoholic drinks?

I drink almost every day...one to 3 glasses of wine mostly though in summer, I drink beers as well. I feel like I am an alcholic sometimes as I find myself craving it...both with or without food. I am about 125 lbs 5'3'' which means, according to some magazine or news articles i've read, i am drinking way too much than recommended.
How much do you drink and how often?

  1. Wine daily....red, white...whatever's accommodating to the weather...and the food I'm cooking.
    I don't drink beer.
    I may have a cocktail or 2 if I'm out on the town, but usually I'll just have more wine with dinner.

      how much wine do you drink daily when you are home?

      1. re: Monica

        On average, I'd say about 2-3 glasses.

    2. I have a glass of wine with dinner once or twice a week and very occasionally will have a mixed drink when I'm eating out.

        That's very much like my H and me. We're both big people (me, 5'11 and currently 189, H, a bit over 6' and 250) but watch our carbs, and H is on blood thinners. Friday night, I made chicken cacciatore and we each had a glass of dry red. We'll finish the bottle with our meal tonight. OTOH, my H's parents had pre-dinner cocktails (MIL scotch and water, FIL, a martini) every weeknight. I don't judge. It's all about how your body (and you) function.

        1. I drink everyday. A bottle wine five days a week with three beers spread over five hours. Or it will just be beers on the other days. No hard alcohol.

          1. Maybe a cocktail once a year.
