I'm on the wagon (ish) so just having a yet another bloody lovely cup of tea smile

Used to be a lovely chilled dry white wine but one has to make sacrifices in search of the body beautiful!

A lovely chilled Sauvignon Blanc. But no Alcohol on Sat or Sunday.

I never drink alcohol on a school night and never when I have the DGC . I do like a glass ( or 3) of wine at the weekend , red or white, depending on what we are eating .

We try not to drink mid week now, unless it's a special occasion.

I have had tea all day and now a big glass of fizzy water after dinner. Would prefer a chilled Sauvignon Blanc but we have to practice a bit of self-discipline. sad

A sachet of laxative powder in a glass of water. It's supposed to be orange flavour. Oh the joys of getting older!

A nice chilled Sauvignon Blanc, haven’t had alcohol since Saturday, so just the one glass this evening whilst cooking (late dinner as CBA earlier)

Kettles on so I think a cup of Earl Grey.

Nothing much fizzy flavoured water 0 calories very occasionally cider probably treat myself once a month Having lunch for a friends birthday tomorrow so may have a white wine or half of cider Not much of a drinker cheap to take out 😂

Several pints of milk stout.

Sara65 Mon 05-Aug-19 19:18:05

Tea. Has to be loose leaf English Breakfast, at work I drink tap water

Love a large gin and tonic, in a big glass with lots of ice and lemon, but that’s an occasional treat these days

eGJ Mon 05-Aug-19 19:22:12

You are trying to lead me astray sarah65. Perhaps a nice cold G&Twith all that ice would make me even more chilled!🙄

Sadly last glass as it was out of stock yesterdaysad

Sara65 Mon 05-Aug-19 19:28:34


I think it’s almost guaranteed to leave you totally chilled.

TerriBull Mon 05-Aug-19 19:30:02

Carbonated water and orange squash, my husband has just asked me if I wanted a glass of wine, but I said no, good to have a night, or two off.

NanKate Mon 05-Aug-19 19:36:25

Amontillado sherry small with two lumps of ice.

annep1 Mon 05-Aug-19 19:47:17

Glass of red.

Pittcity Mon 05-Aug-19 19:49:27

Elderflower tonic with ice. Had a week's worth of alcohol on Saturday night!

SueDonim Mon 05-Aug-19 20:05:21
