I'd like some advice and no judgement please! My husband and I drink a bottle of wine each on s Friday and Saturday. Our only unhealthy vice. We dont touch a drop during the week. Ive heard such conflicting reports about how bad this is. I think it's perfectly fine but recently read this was considered alcoholic.
Last year I had repeat bloods after a liver enzyme was raised. It turned out to be a certain virus but inevitably at my first appointment alcohol was raised. I told my doctor how much I drank and she said this was moderate and not to exceed it and I would be fine. A second doctor laughed when I asked if it was a worrying amount and said not at all and a third doctor told me I was a heavy drinker. Confused I spoke to another who said the truth is there is no idea on a safe limit as every individual is different. To one person several bottles a week wont harm them to another several pints could be very dangerous.
So my question is this. Am I to enjoy my weekly vice without guilt or do I have a 'problem'. I wonder what the normal is for other middle aged couples?
