Many of you over the past few months have seen my post on here and as I sit here drinking a bottle of wine, I wonder how much everyone else drinks a day?

I myself am only 26 years old and find I enjoy wine on many much more than beer or most hard alcohol. I would classify myself as an alcoholic by PC standards. However, I am certainly not PC myself. I am into hardcore and metal for music, so am not a 'standard' wine drinker, nor wine maker.. I drink both for flavor and enjoyment for the wine itself, and for the drunk.. Being totally honest here. I can put a way a bottle or a bit more a night without even a hangover. Do this most nights.

I am just curious as too what everyday, 'normal' wine drinkers and makers drink in a day..

And this is not an open invitation to rip on me or say I am an alcoholic or any BS like that.. I do not need help.. Yet.. HAHA:b

I Seriously want to know..

I usually keep to 1 glass of wine each evening depending on work and how my day has been. Some nights I'll maybe go for 2 glasses.And no you wont hear me ripping on you about your comsumption habits I was your age about half my life time ago and had about the same habits then too.My drink of choice back then was whiskey though.

I drink a glass or 2 every other day. Weekends are usually beer when im working around the yard and if I go out it usually becomes Jack and Cokes!

I usually have a glass while I watch Survivor on Thursday nights and I may have a glass or two on the weekend. I drink coffee way more than wine. I give alot of the wine I make away. I am really getting addicted to the wine making process way more than the drinking which is good cause in my family I am the exception rather than the rule.

I drink wayyy too much... tea. I mean, I go through about 10-12 cups of tea a day lol. Wine however, I will go through a bottle or two per month at the most. Depends if someone comes over, or if wifey is feeling like drinking with me :) I don't like drinking alone lol

haha dirty!

i myself am about your age and do similar. i don't drink more than 1 bottle during the week since i work then. no hangover until 2+ bottles, but an easy trick, drink a huge glass of water before you sleep. usually around 2 bottles on weekend nights, but it's hard to tell though cuz it's usually w/ family and friends (3~5 adults) and we'll drink 5~11 bottles. lol. i pretty much drink anything, though. sometimes beer, sometimes hard liqour. it's all about the setting and how much $ i have at the time. wine mostly though as we carry ~500 bottles or more.

you would not think i'm a wine drinker nor a wine maker. i listen to metal/hard rock preferrably, but do listen to rap/hip hop, old rock (skynard, ozzy, doors, etc..), punk, etc. no country though

doctor told me 2 glasses per day is GOOD. 14 a week. no more or your system is then saturated and is hurting you.

A bottle a day? Not even close.

I am 43, don't like much distilled liquor, actually not much at all, though some day I might like to try and make it.

If I don't get at least a 6 pack of beer in me everyday I am NOT happy. A 12 pack a day is normal, though I don't drink the flammable beers, that is about the average.

When I have wine to drink 3 bottles a day is not unheard of.

Sorry you will not be able to have my liver for transplant.

I was going to lie, but amongst friends, I decided to tell you the truth.

Anyone coming close to that. LOL:D:D

I drank a lot while a senior in highschool, but it got the best of me.
Then I didn't drink much at all for years. I watched my Dad drink every night, Jim Beam or Early Times. He would have at least a half pint nightly, but then sometimes sit and drink a quart by himself. Every morning he got up and went to work. You can imagine those nights around my house with Mom and Dad!!
So I think that was the reason for my abstaining for years.
A couple years ago my brother took me to a "taste of the nation" where they had fine chefs showing their trade and wine sellers doing the same.
I found I liked wine. So that leads me to now...
Some nights I'll have a bottle of my wine, I do like my limited blackberry stash! Other nights I'll have a bottle of store bought grape. I like trying different wines from different regions of the world.
Then some nights I'll have a couple glasses of some "clear" stuff I've experimented with mixed with cola.
But then some nights I don't have anything to drink.
I do have one rule though,
once I have something to drink, I never and I mean never drive. If I go out to eat, I either don't drive or don't drink.
I want to live to ferment my next batch.

How do you make a dent on that huge cellar of yours with just a glass or two every other day?

You must give it away or entertain, I'm guessing.

The wife and I each have a glass with lunch. In the evening I'm into Jack and coke, a couple.

I usually have something to drink every night after work. Last weekend I felt like some bourbon, so I picked up a bottle of Knob Creek. I got about a quarter of that left. Tonight I feel like some Welch's recipe, so I popped open a bottle of that. I'll probably finish it off tonight. I don't drink a lot of beer, which surprises most people, because I work for a beer distributor.

It all depends on my mood...I enjoy nice tequila on occasion as well (Corazon Blanco if I can find it...Don Julio if I can't).

I've been known to sip some Johnny Walker Red as well...I like Bowmore's also.

I'm 40 years old, 6'2" and about 220 lbs with a pretty good resistance. Like myakkagldwngr, If I'm out, I limit myself to a couple of beers or a couple glasses of wine. If I'm riding the bike, I don't drink at all.

:b

Peace,
Bob

Ya I drank a bunch last week, maybe 3 tablespoons. I dont drink much at all. I have been drunk 3 times in 25 year and 2 of those were accidental.
Last week I gave away 48 bottles of wine. But I bottled 85 so I am still +33 bottles.

I do give away quite a bit and when I do entertain I bust wide open and the next day is usually pretty ugly! :s
