      i drink a glass of red wine two times a week, sometimes three. . . it goes quite well with a square of organic dark chocolate.

        Any alcohol AT ALL interferes with my sleep so I right now I'm trying not to drink any, although I don't drink very often... never became a habitual drinker... and I'm 22 so you're not abnormal Rocco Hill! Or we can be abnormal together.

        I do like wine though. And mojitos. :P

          I like wine. I notice my tolerance is greatly improved on PB, I think it is the fat in the diet. BUT I do have a vacuum pump so I can close the bottle back up for the next day.

          I got a wine fridge for Xmas so I feel obligated to fill it, but if I have it I drink it more but then I need to buy more to put in the fridge. Sigh. I need to go stock some cheap wine, all i have in there right now is way too expensive for me to be drinking this frequently

          Red wine messes with my sleep, but white wine does not appear to.

          I really prefer porters and stouts to wine but I am trying to save that for special occasions...like skiing

            Alcohol only interferes with my sleep when I abstain.

              Ha Ha Lojasmo I hear you there! As a lifetime sleepwalker and talker ( I could literally work an entire restaurant kitchen shift in my sleep!) A glass or two of wine (I miss dark beer!) at night, sends me into deep sleep. I wake up rested and ready to face my day! I have been toying with the idea of giving up all alcohol to drop my last 5 lbs, but will I trade those lbs for waking up tired from my "night" work?
              I know this is psychological, I am a very emotionally controlled person. I function exceptionally while in a crisis, I don't ever panic or get emotional. While I am asleep, however, I work through multiple issues it seems, which is probably entirely healthy.
              I "evolved" to never crumble, be emotionally destroyed, or helpless. (my upbringing is another story altogether)..I can not turn into one of those "mushy" people at this stage of the game, although I am very loving and affectionate. A good solid night's sleep is important to me.
              If I turn into a Zombie from sleepwalking and talking (I am always exhausted after one of those nights!), will that be beneficial to anyone? Probably not.
              But, alas I will experiment with 0 alcohol for a bit to see if it drops the last of my "stretchy baby belly"..although Hubby might not get ANY sleep.

                I have 2 drinks a week or so on average I would guess, but that hasn't changed since going primal. I have a beer once a month or so but it is a 32oz beer which I guess is technically three drinks, the occasional glass of wine and the rare scotch.

                  I wonder what moderation really means though? I had two glasses of red last night, and it did affect me in some way. Not badly, but i was less clear than usual. This is probably down to the fact that i just don't drink much at all. Last time i was drunk was probably middle of last year.

                  As i said, the problem with buying a great bottle of plonk, is that you just don't want it to go to waste. Hence one bottle in half a week. Still, i only do that once every few months i suppose, if that

                    Heh, when i look around at friends and people my age, i do feel alittle bit alienated. These guys are drinking pints everyday, getting wrecked 2 times a week. They do look pretty battered though. One friend the same age as me looks about 5 years older than he is, deep lines, inflamed skin, was once lean but now has a beer belly. Another is 30 but he looks pretty ragged, and that is from 7 or 8 years of heavy drinking.

                      I drink wine regularly, and too much too often. I have decided to cut right back - not primarily for health reasons, though I might then get rid of the last few pounds that won't go, but financial reasons - I just worked out how much I spend annually on wine and it was too much.

                      Rocco, your friends may look old for their age but I doubt if it is all due to drink. I have been told often that I look 8 or 10 years younger than I am - I reckon that wine acts as a preservative!!

                        I love wine, but need to give it up to a glass every once in a while as my primary goal is weight loss. As long as you have alcohol in your body, it will burn it off prior to anything else as your body sees it as a toxin, therefore a priority to remove. I need my body to be burning through the fat!

                          They don't drink wine, they drink lager 90% of the time. Pints and pints of it. Obviously to much refined carbs aswell, like bread, pasta, rice etc, but the beer really ages a person.

                            Me too - all three ... and Bloody Marys, and Gin &Tonic, and very dry Martinis. But I've cut back a lot.

                              However, i did buy a damned good bottle of red wine last night, got through 2 glasses.

                              Now i have the issue of the quarter empty bottle staring at me from it's shelf. For me, it's not a problem having a glass a night, but when there is an open bottle it is difficult to leave it there for a few days without touching!

                              Anyway, what are your thoughts on wine, red, white, or other alcohol? I like the stuff

                              Chocies chocies!
                              You should have drank the whole bottle! Don't open good wine and not drink the whole bottle!
                              Throw the rest down the tank!

                              My concern for you is that you admit having a problem with leaving the bottle to stare at you!
                              Dude! either drink it or dump it!

                              10 years sober.... my advice... cease all alcohol consumption.

                                Probably is the beer then - which explains why so many people I know look older than they are - beer drinkers every one of them. And as you say, highly carb-y food too!
