This.

Quoting Lorelai_Nicole:

Eh, the occasional Smirnoff Ice (raspberry or green apple are the best) or a glass of wine. Never more than one.

If I drank, I would. I see no reason to hide it.

I don't really drink at all. It's not my thing.

I grew up around drunks and druggies, so it's something I am very adamant about keeping away from my kids. I mean, I wouldn't freak out about someone drinking a single beer in front of them, but aside from that..

Anyway, on the rare occasion that I do drink anything, I make sure I am either out of the house, or they are in bed and there is another person around who is not going to be drinking. Even though I've never been drunk and make sure not even to get buzzed.

Yes I do.

I don't get trashed or even buzzed, but nothing wrong w/a few beers, a margarita or a glass of wine:)

Ditto.

I think seeing me enjoy a glass of wine, without getting drunk, shows my children how to responsibly enjoy alcohol.


Quoting LucyMom08:

Yes. Wine with dinner, drink before bed, things like that...

I don't really drink.  The odd occasion I may have a glass of wine but after the kids go to bed.  Not because I'm against drinking a glass of wine in front of them but because...I actually want to sit and relax, in peace and quiet and enjoy my wine lol

If I did drink on a regular basis, I wouldnt see a problem with drinking in front of them.  I would never get drunk or even "feeling good" in front of them, though.
