That's me, almost. I don't go 'mad', but sometimes one is too many.

Type A and I enjoy a glass of red wine very infrequently.  Although after reading the book, I may increase my enjoyment.

As an AB non-secretor, I usually do everything to extremes. I used to drink way too much (red wine was my drink of choice) so I've totally cut alcohol out of my life. It's a catch 22 since non-secretors are more likely to be alcoholics yet they also get benefits from red wine.

I really don't care for the taste of beer or wine at all, and with alcoholism in the family, that was just a turn off to ever getting started drinking.  I do lick the measuring spoon after I measure rum or brandy to make cakes and truffles though

I have one glass of red wine a week or so..makes me very relaxed so I know if the reservatol isn't working the alcohol is thinning the blood and helping relieve stress.  Warriors have thick blood. My dad had a stroke..He was a Warrior.

I'm thinking of eliminating alcohol entirely.  I don't drink often (couple times a month), but when I do, I'll have an entire bottle of wine.  I struggle with compulsive behaviors, and alcohol makes me more compulsive (both in terms of drinking it and the ways I act if I've had more than a glass).  

Lots and lots of alcoholism in my family:  both grandparents and mild alcoholism for my father and brother and one sister.  None of my friends drink (they're mostly buddhist), and I never miss it at social functions.  

Also, I'm quitting coffee anyway, as of this morning.  My thoughts: Why not eliminate all compulsive substances?

Now that I am older and wiser < ahem > I don't drink at all. As an O I also have high acid and got me a nice ulcer going on, so drinking isnt such a good idea.
I did like mojitos though. Yum.

I'm an O and I generally have half a glass of wine on Friday nights and another half a  glass on Saturday afternoons. Sometimes I'll drink a whole glassful (or rather, refill the small wine glass) We make a blessing over wine (or grape juice) at  night and in the afternoon of Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath, every Friday night and all day Saturday.) If there's a Jewish holiday, I'll have another half glass per festive meal (so 1 glass per day) on those "weekdays" as well.

Occasionally, I'm stuck with only white wine in the house on a Friday night (an avoid for me.) When that happens, I have one sip instead of a glassful.

  My thoughts: Why not eliminate all compulsive substances?  


Oh, shucks.  You want me to give up my beloved mustard greens?

Just kidding, of course.

I used to believe one should not partake of anything that might become addictive.  Then I got older and wiser too   (ha) and realized it actually was better all around (especially for my judgmental attitude) to be moderate in all things and be a little more careful what I require or condemn.  Not saying anybody else is doing this, I'm just saying where I am now, if it matters to anybody.

For me alcohol is not anything evil - but something very pleasurable
- something I enjoy with good food.
I have never been a heavy drinker - not even when I was a silly teen.
I have just always enjoyed a nice glass of red wine or 2 in the weekend when I cook better /nicer food.

My mum and stepdad both O types drink a bit to much imho
Not that they are alchoholics- but they just use wine more for its relaxing effect/  to get down after a strssful week = I think they drink too much at the time-maybe 3-5 glasses.

My sister B type and I hardly ever drink more than 1-2 glass at the time
My dad (AB) was the same 1-2 glasse and t was connected with pleasure - enjoying the flavour more than its effect.

I find it hard to imagine a life without the flavour of good wine... but that is just me.

I usually have a glass of white wine in the evening a couple times a week.  At a party I will tend to drink a bit more.  Occasionally Iíll break down and have a rum & coke for old timeís sake or when I donít like the quality of the wine, but the corn syrup is what does me in, not the rum.

Four bourbon and cokes each friday night. 2 for each half of the football.  

Generally always regret it in the morning.  

In the non-football season I'd be lucky to have one drink a month and that would more than likely be a glass of wine. I don't know why the football brings out the bourbon drinker in me but I guess it has something to do with slinging off at the refs.  .

I can't get drunk though. That kills me. I take days to recover from even the most mildly annebriated states. As it is now, saturday mornings run at a slightly slower pace than the rest of the week and that's with the bourbon being only about 5% alcohol. I'd be a mess if it was any stronger.

I really shouldn't drink at all but in winter, the friday night "wind down" is just too alluring.  . One day I'll learn.


The only possessions which do not possess us are those which can be shared by all.

It also pays to wear a christmas hat.

must tell you something..sad.. this morning I found one of my clients dead in her bathroom....due to alc. intake but in highest quantities..... ......it was a terrible picture... folks
alc. consumtion not only affects your liver and stomach, but your whole body.... in later years it might create so called Ųsophagus varicen and this leads to inetrnal and external bleedings...really dangerous coz you don't feel anything before it starts.....!!!
I only can warn.... not to overdo..........

I feel awful..... .........

I went with my date to one fraternity party in college.  It was the last one I went to because I thought that was just the silliest thing I ever saw with everyone chug-a-lugging their beers just to see who could hold the most beer.  My viewpoint hasn't changed to this day.  

I do drink a glass of merlot with dinner every day these days and it seems to make dinner quite special.  Hah, especially since my husband has taken over the cooking.  Life is good!

Will sip a little red wine for the health benefits, but other than that I hate the taste. I guess my Super Taster status prevents me from liking it.
