I will drink water, diet Sierra Mist or low sugar sparkling grape juice. I might have a glass of wine with our Christmas Eve meal, but I'll see how I feel. I'd rather save the calories for an extra dessert or one of grandma's cookies

Nope, hate the taste and smell of alcoholic beverages of any kind, and hate the smell of the breath of others who do drink them.............

I would love to have a glass or 2 or wine on Christmas, but that always seems to result in my over-eating/grazing all afternoon and evening, so not quite sure yet. Hmm, the dilemma....

A small glass of red wine.

I'm not much of a drinker but I do like an occasional drink. A little Baileys, Kahlua or peppermint schnapps in some hot chocolate (Sugar free of course), a margarita with Mexican food, a martini on New Years. It's an occasional indulgence. Too many calories that I would rather eat most of the time. And since I can't stand beer and only rarely find a wine that I like it's easy to not drink often.

I have 2 bottles of chocolate wine that I was given last year if someone wants to come over and share!

No, I don't drink. But, sometimes I wonder if it would help relieve stress? A glass of red wine, like my Italian ancestors.

I will track one glass of red wine with my Christmas Dinner and probably one cocktail for New Year's Eve but that will be it! emoticon

Yes, but no more than "usual" - i.e. a glass of wine here and there.

I don't normally drink so probably not at all - maybe some wine or sherry if I haven't got to drive.

I'm not a big drinker ... but my family will have wine with dinner sometimes, and I am sure I will have a little of that.

And my sister & I usually put a little Bailey's in our hot chocalate on Christmas morning. Yum!

No. I dont like to waste money on things that arent very good for me.

The true failure is when a person neglects to try, out of fear of failing.
