I am no longer able to have even a tiny tot of alcohol any more due to the medication I require. Even in the past,I would not drink large amounts of alcohol,and I would only drink something if I actually LIKED it..I am definitely not one to drink simply to 'fit in'!!
I drank some of my fancy elderflower sparkling wine on Christmas day - sometimes I mixed it with the nice, non alcoholic punch I made. I've had a few other nights where I've had a few glasses of wine. I have always liked a drink, but have scaled back since having kids - obviously breastfeeding makes it hard to have more than a couple!
When I was breastfeeding,my specialist and my doctor both said that a small glass of wine with my evening meal would actually be good for milk production!!! I was necer a big drinker,but I did take their advice just in the beginning while I worked out a good feeding routine,and my son certainly thrived!! In fact I could have provided enough milk for quintuplets!!!!! I did not do it for more than a few weeks though!!! After all,one baby only needs enough milk for one baby!!!
I don't drink at all anymore. I stopped drinking in 2007. I just got bored of drinking. I would never consider having a drink and I don't miss it at all. The only thing that bothers me is the 50 questions I get when people realise I am drinking a non-alcoholic beverage.
Yes, I have some, but very little. I get invited out to quite a few parties and bbqs, so sometimes I have a small glass.. November and December are busy times, but don't drink much for the rest of the year !!!
