Drinking 1 to 2 decent sized glasses of red wine over the course of a 5 hr evening most evenings you're home OR drinking 2 cans of diet coke (any soda) a day?





My Sil about fell over last night when she saw my bottle of wine on the counter that was just over half gone from this week.... (ok it was a 'big girl bottle' aka 1.5ltrs)





that's my family's culture! We drink wine when we gather, when we cook, when we eat... My ex husband owns a winery and has been an award winning, professional winemaker for 20 yrs....
I also haven't been 'drunk' in years...




We don't have soda in our house unless we splurge on pizza, no candy or processed junk food unless its a rare treat. But my Dhs family's family LIVE on soda. Every dinner, every day. When we gather the standard drink is all sodas. I could care less nor do I judge or say anything. My kids love that 'treat' so... great! Not going to hurt anything but really? Who are you to about have a heart attack in my kitchen and act like I'm a freaking drunk?! It bothered and embarrassed me. (I'm a red head so I blush like crazy and its awful!) We have their family over twice a month so they can 'get out' (new baby and 7 yr old). Jeez! Vent over ;)

The soda, especially diet, is worse.  Wine has benefits to it.

Aren't there health benefits to drinking red wine? I dunno, I'm a Riesling girl. But there's nothing beneficial about soda lol.

I dont do the soda thing but I always have wine or beer in the house. I know the soda, diet or not, is worse.

Don't Europeans drink wine daily and they are healthier overall?  I think I heard that awhile back.  Anyway for some reason soda is more acceptable and mainstream, but I agree it is not the healthy choice.
