  • I do.. I have two kids if I didn't have a drink whilst cooking/cleaning/watching a movie I would go insane. I only do it once ever 2 weeks or so, I don't consider it being a problem.. this is coming from someone who's mother drinks heavily every day and is nasty drunk or not. I never used to drink at all but decided just because she isn't responsible doesn't mean I can't have a good time every once in a while.. I think I'm stronger than her and won't let myself become her.

  • It could be a sign but one thing is for sure, every time you take a drink of alcohol alone or not the chances of alcoholism forming increases.

  • I don't see that being an extreme version of consuming alcohol, but it's perfectly fine to drink wine occasionally.

  • the occasional drink is ok, its when it becomes everyday, multiple times a day or you can unwind without a drink in hand that you should be concerned about.
