I'd say other... A few times a week.  That is less than daily but more than just weekends.

I think I've had one drink in almost four years. I've been pregnant or nursing that long. Even when I'm not I don't drink much. Too expensive.

I put on weekends only, but it's usually only a couple times a month.  Me and my husband are beer snobs and we get a growler of the micro brew we love once a month or so.  And once a month I have company and I will drink then, usually wine, or some kind of themed drink for the dinner party.  Like last time we had Moscow Mules, which were vodka and ginger beer.  So I say a couple times of month, and our drinks vary.

I usually only deink about 2 or 3 times a month, but it's only a couple of drinks, not enough to get drunk. When I do drink it's usually a wine cooler. My kids have seen me have a drink or two but they have never seen me drunk.

I haven't had a drink since June or so of 2010. I wish I could but I was ttc, then pregnant and now still bf. I may end up weening soon since I have to pump and dump because of my MRI.

Quoting sallij:

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.




Same for me too

I rarely drink anymore.  Funny how that happens..pre-kids and pre marriage, I drank wine in the evenings, had cocktails when I went out, and drank like a fish when out at the club.  Then I got married and preggo, and that sort of was it for me.  I have had a couple of girls' nights where we went out and let our hair down, but we had a few drinks and that was it. 

Now, my neighbors across the street had a Halloween party last year and we went over there and really tied one on.  I was pretty lit, and my dh even more so since he's such a light weight.  Good thing we only had to stumble across the street and up our driveway to go home!

That said, I had 2 glasses of wine back in January in one sitting, and that's it...
