How much does your SO drink a month?

As in alcohol. Im just wondering because I think mine drinks too much a month but he says its normal. Whats normal for you?


edit*** I mean how many days a month, not how many drinks a month. I dont keep track of the drinks, just the days.

  • About the same amount I do. He has maybe 1-2 beers a week, if that, or a shot of vodka mixed with juice or pop. Some weeks nothing. Even if you think he drinks too much, there's really nothing you can do about it.

  • I never really counted his drinks. He drinks socially when we go out. We usually go out on Friday or Saturday night and he'll have a couple of I guess on average per month it would be about 10 to 12 alcoholic drinks.

  • We drink maybe one night a month- 3 drinks & that's about it. BUT we have a toddler now. Before her, we went out 3-4x a week & drank a lot more.

    Is your SO drinking so much that he's missing work/school/church? Is he avoiding social or family obligations to stay home & drink? Has it had a negative impact on you financially? Is he hiding how much he drinks? THOSE are the questions you should concern yourself with. Asking how much any of us drink is pretty subjective.

  • Luckily my husband asks if i mind if he drinks. so it is not too often. I grew up with drunks and cant stand alcohol. But he may drink once every couple months. but i would say maybe 1 or 2 times a month wouldnt be too terrible

  • beofre his friend was no longer able to drink with him it was about 1 time a week he would have a few beers with him and maybe one at home a wee. Now that his friend is out of the market- so to speak-he has a drink or two total a month. Just a beer here and there at home.
