  • If you are asking for yourself, you may be drinking too much if you have to ask this. I read that as part of a checklist of whether you could be drinking too much, etc.

  • I drink maybe a drink a week. I'm not at all a big drinker. I used to smoke cigarettes, and when I drink, it brings back the cravings.

  • No I don't drink on a weekly basis. Maybe like 1 or 2 drinks a month is all I have now. Since being pregnant and having my son, I just haven't had a taste for alcohol and my tolerance went down ALOT, so one glass of wine gets me tipsy...which I don't like. I do know that in other countries, drinking a glass of wine or having a beer is common with dinner every night. Alcohol means nothing. Its just a part of their culture, and there is no emphasis put on drinking or getting drunk. Which is exactly why their alcohol abuse rates are ridiculously low compared to the US.

  • None, ever. I've been pregnant and/or nursuing for the last fourteen years, I have no desire to taste alcohol, and it's a big waste of money.
