Question: How often do you drink?


Pretty much every day.

Ususally on the weekends only.

Maybe once a month at most.

A couple times a year.

Never, because I do not like it.

Never, due to personal beliefs or experiences.

And what do you drink when you do?  Do your kids see you drink?

I didn't see an option for several times a week, but that's me. I have a glass of wine in the evenings 3 or so nights a week. Every now and again I'll have a drink if I go out to dinner on the weekends, too.

I will have a drink or two every few months. I'm a light weight and don't like spending the night on the bathroom floor, so I just don't drink.

ETA: if I am at home and on that rare occasion I want a glass of wine, I just pour it whether the kids or around or not. But, no, my kids have never seen me DRINK and puke as a result lol.

I usually drink a couple of times a year. New Years Eve & My & My Mama's Birthday(our Bdays are 26 & 27th). On those occassions I drink Tequila Shots with a Corona, avg 4-5 shots per beer. Or Shots of Tequila along with a Really good batch of Margeritas. Otherwise I don't drink anymore than that. About 10 or so years ago, I would go thorugh a bottle 750 of Wine every couple of weeks and Shots of Tequila on the weekend. Alot has changed since then.

I do not drink alcohol as becoming drunk is against my faith but I do on occasion cook with wine in my food as the cooking process removers all most 100% of the alcohol.

Almost never. It's been years since I had an alcoholic drink.

I go through phases.

I drink more then an ounce probably 1-2x a year.

However, I do love a splash of baileys in my coffee or cocoa. I'll have 1 of those almost everyday for a few months. When I mean splash I mean probably about 1/2 to an ounce worth. Then I'll get off that kick and for a few months have tea with honey 3-5x a day. 

My kids have seen us drink. I think it's important that they see it done in moderation. My DH will have a beer on occasion and I will have the occasional Mike's Hard Lemonade. Neither one of us would have anything strong or drink to get tipsy around the kids. They generally don't see the Baileys since that's what I drink when I'm relaxing, there isn't much relaxing happening while they are awake. lol

I don't drink. Hubby and I don't like the taste of any alcohol. Last time we had any was on our wedding night(almost 10 years ago). Oh wait a min. I accidently got a drink at Ground Round when I was in my first trimester with my first. I ordered a chocolate milk shake and she gave me someone else's whatever you call it that looks like that. I took one sip an about threw up.
