We see so much on TV, either reality shows or sitcoms, where the moms meet to drink or sneak to drink or go out to drink. I was just wondering honestly how often do we (as mothers) drink? Do you drink in front of your children? How about to the point of intoxication (being drunk)? Do you sneak drink? Do you feel your drinking influences your being a mom, good or bad?
For myself...I drink maybe 3 to 4 times a month (special occassions, occassional wine with a meal), if it is casual then yes I drink in front of my children, otherwise I save it for when I got out with friends, I'm pretty sure my son has seen me drunk before, but definitely not plastered (regretful behavior, excessive cursing, etc) I'm grown so no sneaking on my part. I'm a great mom, drinking has no influence on that!!!

In European countries they drink and their parents drink in front of them they learn responsible use of alcohol my kids have seen me drink but I was never drunk having a beer once and a while or a glass of wine is not bad.

I drink wine just about every night , liquor & everything else occasionally id say about 5 times a month maybe more depending. I NEVER get drunk...just don't like the feeling of not being in control of myself. My kids see me drink but rarely. Here we call it mom & dads Mojo so the kids understand what it is & that they are not allowed to touch it.
