On occasion yes




I did. I liked to drink with dinner and at get togethers, however once I was pregnant that was it! Now that I'm done with kids, I'm will continue to drink responsibly!


I have never taken a sip nor have had the desire to. I am very strict in my Christian belief. I had an alcoholic biological father and my ex-stepfather drank as well. Alcohol destroyed my family, nearly killed my niece and a few of my sisters, a drunk driver nearly took out my mother, sister, and my infant nephew and toddler niece (at the time). I despise alcohol. I won't even cook with it. We do not allow it in our home, and neither of us drink. I would not have married him if he drank and it was vise-versa with him. He hates alcohol as much as I do. We do not condemn those who choose to do so, but it is not for us. I hope my children choose to avoid the stuff as well.


I was a "WEEKEND" drinker and enjoyed it because i was single no responsibility but then met my husband dated for 1 yr 1/2 them married then had kids and now i can't even drink wine because i get a headache after the 1st sip!!! LoL
