I probably have about one or two drinks a week, on average-- although lots of weeks I drink no alcohol at all, and then in a social situation I might have a few more. I can't really drink more than 3 in one evening, though. I'm a total lightweight...
I mostly drink wine. I drink DH's homemade wines, when I can-- mostly really low-alcohol stuff like dandelion wine and strawberry wine. Otherwise, I drink red wines. I LOVE beer, but I can't really tolerate it-- I have ulcerative colitis, and beer really bothers it. I treat myself to one beer every Christmas-- a really good beer-- and then regret it for two weeks afterward, every year.
But mostly it's just a glass of red wine on a Friday evening when a friend is over, and then maybe one late Sunday afternoon while the kids are outside.
I come from a long line of alcoholics, on both sides of my family. For many years I didn't drink at all, out of fear that I would be too vulnerable to addiction. I have arrived at a place, though, where I recognize that moderation is something I can do. I have the ability to do that.
