I am a reformed alcoholic, which I can say because I am somewhat anonymous here. The poll didn't allow for that. Just a few years ago I would have checked a different answer. I've drunk enough for a few lifetimes; hopefully no more in this one,though!

My wife and I drink wine with dinner frequently; we're particularly fond of zinfandel and pinot noir. Pizza and mexican food call for beer. We don't drink much of the hard stuff at home (maybe an occasional brandy on a cold evening), but when we go out for a nice meal, we often order a cocktail before dinner. She likes a brandy old fashion and I like dirty vodka martinis. I'd say on average we consume 1-2 drinks each, 3-4 days a week (mostly Friday through Sunday).

Is it Dave Barry that says: "If God didn't want us to drink beer he wouldn't have invented pizza."
