    I have a glass (maybe 3 oz) of red 5 nights out of 7. DH loves a beer at night; I keep trying to remind him that it comes from grain, but he's Irish, so ....

      Check this out....I had 1.75 glasses of wine last night (I had an open bottle...it was oxidizing..I had to finish it off!) and weighed this morning and I was 2 lbs down from my previous weighing. This is the 2nd time this has happened to me since going PB. So, Im contemplating a wine "flushing" being added to my lifestyle maybe once per week....
      If you can just get your....mind together....then come on across to me.....

        I'm a huge fan of single-malt scotch (Laphroaig FTW) and good beer but literally every time I drink now I become extremely fatigued. Alas.

          Scotch. Blended, single-malt, all good. I've noticed that when I do drink beer now, it hits me much harder than it used to, which I suppose is a good cost-saving benefit, since I usually only order decent beers.

            Scotch and gin are my vices, usually no mixers, just ice (with seltzer as a side drink). I only drink on weekends.
            I'm trying to cut back, but it's far too easy to celebrate a good Friday or distract from a bad Friday, you know?

              I used to drink a lot before I started eating paleo about 8 weeks ago. Well what I call a lot would be about 3 pints of beer a day on average or wine equivalent, with maybe one day off in ten, so it added up to a lot. I would never go out and get 'smashed' but drink quality beers and take my time over them but it still added up. Since eating paleo though I have limited myself to about two glasses of wine/cider a week and I obviously feel a lot better for it. I'm not even that bothered about it at all any more - I think a lot of it was just habit. I do feel more affected by alcohol now though I think. I only feel about 80% the day after I have had two glasses of wine or cider. When I do drink a little it is only at weekends though. I have a bottle of red for tonight, though I will only drink half of that unless I decide to leave it all for another day, see how I feel later.

                I don't drink that often but I'm not that bothered about the health consequences. I drink vodka, red wine and cider (not all together).

                  I've stopped drinking for the moment, due to health problems. It affects me quite badly when I do drink these days. But I do like cider and red wine.

                    Seems to be true. I'm a wine drinker, and do overindulge sometimes, but have eaten low sugar for a couple of decades. I look around 10-15 years younger than my biological age.

                      I'll drink dark beer and whiskey every now and then, and wine or mead a couple times a year, but I tend to keep the volume small since I'm prone to brutal hangovers. I used to drink a lot when I was younger, but waking up and feeling like I had been hit in the head with a sledgehammer changed that habit pretty quickly.
                      Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

                      In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

                        I drink 3 or 4 nights a week on average. It's normally only a drink or two, although it occasionally turns into 6 or 7. I love good beer and refuse to give it up, although I do try to stick to bourbon as much as possible.

                              I drink pretty regularly, and I still lose. Red wine or scotch for me, almost nightly.

                                I drink less than I used to when I go out, but I still drink and have been losing weight with PB anyway.
