I had to go to a new doc as my old one retired. He was checking me out for stuff and asked me how much I drank. I told him the honest truth and he flipped out. I drink maybe oh, 4 bottles of wine a week. We're talking the "normal" smaller size, not the big 'ol jug sized bottles. I like wine. I especially like chilling with a nice red in the evening listening to music. But by his reaction my consumption is off the charts. He threw out the "alcoholic" term a couple of times. Whut? Ya kidding? Hmmmm.
I was perplexed as I know a lot of people who drink waaaay more than I do.
I've thought about giving up alcohol all together, even though it would take a "hobby" of mine away sort of.
Anyway, I know we have people here on both sides of the fence. I thought it would be interesting to throw it out there to talk about.
