How often do you drink? What about going out without kids?

How often do you have drinks after your kids are in bed? Or do you ever get to go out without the kids? Just wondering how often everyone gets to do things for yourself?

  • I haven't had a drink in 2 years this coming November. Otherwise, SO always was sober because he doesn't drink.

  • It really depends. Sometime I have a drink once a week, sometimes twice, sometimes once every 2-3 weeks. It's usally just a glass of wine or a beer but when I do get a night out on the town on occasion (maybe once every 2-3 months?) my favorite is a long island but I limit that to my one and only drink. I haven't been "drunk" in a very long time. I use alcohol to relax and socialize not to get wasted.

  • I only drink at home with MIL is visiting. I might have a drink with dinner when hubby and I go out once in a while, but I hate cigarette smoke so I won't go to bars or clubs.  If we had a nonsmoking one I might go, but I get sick being around it.

  • Sometimes my SO & I will have a glass of wine with dinner- yep in front of DD. Its only ONE, not like we get shitfaced. We have a date night once a week, sometimes we drink, sometimes we don't.
