How many nights a week do you drink alcohol?

And how much?

I fancy a glass, but we're not allowed to drink on school nights, but if hitchers drink during the week, I will, as it must be the law!

I am also curious!

Thank you

    Friday/Sat and Sun night.

    I rarely drink during the week - really to keep my weight down.

    I only drink a couple of glasses of wine on the weekends nights too.

    I had 1 beer on Monday night, no alcohol last night, on my 2nd glass of wine tonight. Probably won't have anything tomorrow or Friday (cinema night). ?

    I try to keep it to the weekends only although an odd glass does creep in sometimes - particularly Monday nights if there is a glass of wine left....

    Friday night is Margharita night and we make a jug of it up. Other nights its a glass or two of wine.

    I normally don't drink at all. Its quite rare for me to, but when I do its just when I fancy it whatever day and usually only one drink.

    So Hitchers seem to well behaved so far!

    Before Mini Mo Fo was born I would drink a bottle every night (at least) I have no idea how I functioned everyday, getting up for work, it didn't seem like a big deal as it was 'only' 4 glasses!

    I struggle with two glasses now!

    Hole if you are having wine, I think I really should!

    I'm having a glass now too, we are celebrating the birth of our new nephew ?. yo ucan use that as an excuse if you like, MF? ?

    it totally depends here. i can easy go a month with no booze, but similarly if we have lots of dinners / parties / we fancy it we'll drink more. if it is one of the latter weeks i'll always try to keep it to a minimum, and have three or four alcohol free nights. mainly because i feel crap about myself when i drink too much. i wish i didn't, but it's such a depressent for me.

    Only when there's a y in the day. ?

    Actually, I can go weeks and weeks without a drink but if I fancy a glass of wine, I don' t let the fact that it's a school night put me off. I'm past the age where I feel obliged to finish the bottle at one sitting so can quite happily have just the one glass.

    Pre-pregnancy, I'd probably drink 4 nights a week. just a glass of wine or so during the week, but more at weekends.

    My H probably has a beer 5 nights a week.

    I could murder a glass of wine right now.

    I have a glass or two most nights during the week - usually two.

    Friday/Saturday/Sunday I have a bottle of wine each night. OH has the same.

    Too much I know. Will have to cut down to get my weight down and get my body in order for TTC.

    I used to drnk pretty much everyday but cut back a couple of years ago. Now I try to stick to weekends only, with the odd glass during the week.

    I only drink on weeknights during the school holidays, or when I'm very stressed.

    Almost always on Fri/Sat/Sun though.

    I generally have a couple of glasses on a Friday or Saturday night, and sometimes one or two during the week if I'm out or if it's a special occasion.

    Having a glass now. I only have a small glass due to baby feeding paranoias, but it's not enough to stop me drinking altogether. Probably 3 times a week?

    I drink usually 3-4 glasses of wine every night, when H and I are off the next day we can polish off 2 bottles each over the course of an afternoon-evening. I know it's too much, but I don't get drunk, most I get is tipsy then I stop, and I'm pretty stressed at the moment. I know it's not an excuse but hey, I enjoy the taste of wine.

    Some weeks, not for days at a time, including weekends. Others every day, and others lots and lots everyday! Tonight I'm having a beer

    I probably drink most nights. There are exceptions, especially if I don't feel like it or I'm busy with other things and twice a year, I have 2 alcohol free weeks, just to prove to myself I do not NEED wine. Although having said that, wine does make me feel better! ?

    Like Allegra, I don't feel drunk after 4 glasses (although I would never drive) and it does take quite a lot more wine for me to start feeling tipsy. I'm on my second glass now and beginning to feel relaxed.

    Go on Monkey Fingers - a glass of red wine supposedly has medicinal benefits due to the antioxidents in red wine. Shame there isn't anything similar in white wine! ?

    Congratulations FIS on your new nephew. So cub has a cousin? how sweet!

    At the moment I can't drink at all due to medication; otherwise it can vary wildly. i would say I drink three times a week, maximum of 2 bottles of wine in one night (I don't drink anything else really) but usually a bottle.

    On a usual week I tend to only drink one day a week. Mostly to stop me gaining any more weight!

    I tend to have a blow out on Friday,s so don't pretend to be angelic, but it seems to work for me. I hardly ever get wasted anymore. I feel like I'm too old and boring for that now.

    I seem to be having a drink every night at the moment and a bottle of wine at weekends. I am off work at the moment though so it's allowed. Usually I rarely drink during the week as it disturbs my sleep.

    If I have wine in then I'll have a glass most nights until it's gone. If it's not in the house then I don't drink it. Obviously! At the weekend i'll probably have a bottle, maybe on a Friday night and Saturday night, maybe not, just depends how I feel.

    No real set pattern - tonight have had 2 and on third glass of wine - but been out for birthday tea and continuing. Some weeks nothing at all during week and just stick to weekends but that all depends if we have OHs little ones staying. Then maybe justa glass or two once the are sleeping. However years ago my sons job on a thursday once he got home from school was to put my pre weekend wine in the fridrrge so chilled for my return from work!!!!

    When not pregnant I do drink most nights but I try to have a couple of nights off a week at least.

    Ooh I want wine now....I'm 27 weeks pregnant, a wee glass won't do any harm will it? I've been sooooo good this pregnancy.

    I could happily drink a bottle a night. I love wine. However, it's not good for me and I wouldn't be able to function the next day. I usually have Sun, Mon and Tues off but Wed my H goes out so I am having 2 glasses and then stopping. Thurs is 1 glass to finish the bottle off from Wed. Friday there's a few rum and cokes and then I have 1 bottle on a Sat.

    I try and not have any on a school night, which isnt great as some weeks I only work 2 days, others 3 ? I dont tend to up the amount I have at the weekend though. If I fancy a glass of two I will have it.

    Since I was pregnant the only thing I like to drink is dry white wine. If there isnt any in the house i wont touch any of the stash of alcohol we have in the sideboard, it is either white wine or nothing. So I dont think I am addicted to alchohol, just the taste of a crisp dry white wine. [drool]. Oh, or fat coke. It is one of the other in this house.

    Infact, today isnt a school night is it! I am off work tomorrow ! I better go get a lovely crisp glass of white wine. [yum] ? everyone.

    (roobarb, it will do you good I am sure)

    I drink five nights out of seven. I have Wednesdays (yoga night) and Fridays off, and have a glass on the others, usually.

    I don't remember the last alcoholic drink I had. There was a glass of wine a couple of weeks ago and half a shandy a day or so after that, but it doesn't help me to lose weight and I can take it or leave it.

    One or two... Sometimes three, occasionally four, I've been known to do five, Six wouldn't be entirely unusual and seven is actually fairly common.

    Depends on whether I've anything else to do or not.
