It is neutral or beneficial for type O depending on secretor status.

Dr D says the occasional glass of wine is okay. but what size glasses? ;)

I would work out what a unit is and have absolutely no more than 2 units a day. assuming you have no major issues

and since you can have only two make them a decent one if you can, organic and additive / sulphite free or make it yourself.

persdonally I stick to one glass of home made red wine (neutral on swami) and not even every day.

here is the reasoning behind the 2 units per day limit however the research is for normal people remember not immortal blood grouper like us ;)

Ditto.

It wasn't until I'd more or less abandoned the 2 glasses at dinnertime that I was aware of how detrimental it was to my health. Maybe just me though, as I've never handled wine very well what with the sugar and sulfites. Now a nice single malt scotch...  (pray)

It depends on your overall size, your alcohol tolerance, the alcohol and sugar content of the wine, etc. A 100 pound woman can't drink as much as a 250 pound man. Somebody with weaker liver function may not do well on alcohol daily, or may need smaller quantities. Somebody with blood sugar issues may do fine on dry wines but not on sweet ones.

Personally, I don't drink more than a glass per day, and generally only on Shabbos and Jewish holidays. I do drink 4 glasses for the Passover seders, but I usually feel sluggish the next morning- if I was drinking for my health I would stop at 1 glass. This past Passover, I realized that the sweet wines were much worse for me than the higher alcohol wines- so I'll be sure to have dry red wine available for me next Passover.

For a time, I drank half a glass every night. It was great for my digestion, but it coincided with me overall not feeling well, and I couldn't be sure if the  daily wine consumption was contributing, so I stopped. I'm back to drinking it only once a week.

You need to evaluate all the factors and decide if drinking wine nightly is likely to be healthy for you personally. You may do better with one glass, or only half a glass per night, rather than 2.

I mostly do it when I eat heavy meals. 3 pints a day sometimes.

Red wine is a black dot for me and very hard to quit.

After long autosuggestions, I've replaced it with grape juice, a neutral, which I've been consuming anyway.
From time to time I become aware and make an effort to clean my pantry from one neutral or other. With grape juice there's no way this is going to happen, because of the frequent blessing on the "Fruit of the Vine", which is a part of many many Jewish sacred rituals. I am not observant, yet every ritual or blessing I do keep, I find to be a blessing in itself.

Another support surprised me in the form of Kombucha Tea, a diamond, which last week I bought for the first time. Why did I delay so long?  ::) It is so great! (dance)

Kombucha's small contents of alcohol (< 0.5% ?) is better for me than the 13-14% in the red wine. One example of less is more. :)

I thought I could never give up red wine... Until I tasted ginger flavored Kombucha. It's not just delicious, something about it really satisfies. Don't miss red wine at all.

Before trying kombucha is this the only mixture of it? Always from black and green tea?

A lightly sparkling beverage made by fermenting black or green tea and sugar with a culture of various bacteria and yeasts.

Check the label... The one I buy is fermented in green tea.

As a nonnie who throughout life has "entertained" one addiction after another (beginning with sugar, BTW) I can attest to this statement. In all cases the solution has been found in the psyche.

We haven't heard from you in over a week.
Do you have some reason for asking? How do you feel?

BINGO! As with most (all?) addiction, freeing ourselves from habits (physical and mental) is essential to becoming our true selves. The tools to accomplish this, as you point out, are found right at our feet.
