  • I don't have to - but I sometimes do because I like to or want to -

  • I used to, but not since having a kid... I guess I don't think as much about what I want. Though now that you mention it, there is an open bottle of wine on the counter. :)

  • I just made myself a drink because I am stressed. i had some jamaican rum in my freezer for a while now. I just tossed it together with some cranberry juice and ginger ale. Anything wrong with having one drink at three in the afternoon?

  • Nope, I don't drink at all. I don't see a need for it. I can relieve my stress in other ways.

  • lol, well if you have to pick up a kid from school, then maybe. I dont drink, Im a single parent and if there was ever an emergency its all on me.

  • So do you think something is wrong with having a drink once in a while, as long as you dont always do it. For example...I havent had a drink in like two months. I am not having the greatest day, so I decided to whip this up.

  • I drink every once in a while honestly can't remeber the last time I had one thats how far between it is.

    drinking at 3 in afternoon wouldn't work for me. I have my kids and home to be taking care of at that time. I guess it depends on what you have to do and if your kids are home with you at that time.

  • No I dont drink. Maybe on OCCASION but I think the last time my dh and I bought alcohol it sat in the fridge so long we ended up throwing it out. We just arent big drinkers. Neither of us like the impaired feeling.

  • My kids arent young toddlers, so I guess thats why Im ok with it right now. I said, hey what the hell...its been sitting in there for a while now. Not sure if I am stress free yet lol. But at least, dinner will get done early ;)
