    After many years of testing and experimentation, I find through the lips to be the best method for me. I have less laundry to do that way. ;)

    Yah, me too!! Funny! I often tell my DH when it is just a really bad day and I am still thinking about losing job, daughter's situation, mother's cancer, loss of husband's extra spending money job, loss of good friends through work, that I just don't think I drink enough. Half glass of wine, small margarita every month or so is all I imbibe in. But then I wouldn't get to feel the pain so it is not a good solution for me. Think I will just keep trudging along each day and sew to relieve the stress. And sit on this board a little too much! Guess I would say I am a sloooowww far-behind drinker.

    A little bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream is a great night cap.

    Some days I wish I drank more than I do, which isn't much. I still have 5 bottles of Mikes Hard Lemonaid I bought in August.

    Guess it is a good thing I choose not to drink much. Some of the family of my moms generation had drinking issues and i've chosen not to take the chance.

    I have 2 sons. My oldest son has a form of autism. He is high-functioning but had a LOT of behavioral challenges when he was younger. My husband traveled quite often for work, so I was not able to get many breaks from the kids. One particularly challenging evening, I called a girlfriend who was in a similar situation and asked her to talk to me until I could calm down, because I was ready to kill one or both of my kids. She asked me if I had any wine in the house. I laughed, I thought she was joking, but she was serious. She told me to drink a glass of wine and she'd talk to me for a few minutes. It worked! It took the edge off and helped me relax a bit. Ever since then, I made sure to keep some sort of alcohol in the house. Fortunately, my son has grown, matured, and learned, and alcohol has become less of a necessity and more of a pleasure to partake.

    I never worried about being an alcoholic - there were many, many times I did not want a drink, and had to force myself to have at least a half-glass of wine. It's not good to be under so much stress for so long.

    I LOVE to have a cordial like Sambuca in the evening. If the day has been crappy, I put my big girl panties on and grab a Johnnie Walker scotch. Somehow, the troubles melt away!! Lol

    At 70+ years, I'm on a boatload of medications for a boatload of age-related conditions, therefore, I drink no alcohol(Besides, all my medication bottles clearly state "Don't drink alcohol or operate heavy machinery")LOL
    I live on the 8th floor of a loft apartment in the heart of the city - wonder what heavy machinery I should avoid. They couldn't possibly mean my wheelchair, could they???
    Now if we rewind about 50 years, I was in the military, stationed in Washington, DC and I was a typical party animal and bourbon was my drink of choice Ahhhh.... those were the days.

    Prefer Hot Tea, especially Prince of Wales, Lady Grey (regular and decaf), Sugar cookie and Amoretta if I can locate it.

    But as others have mentioned over the lips is a good prospect. But then I have lost a few dribbles.

    Back in my yonger days I was quite the party girl but after having kids I did a complete turn around and didnt' drink hardly anything till the youngest was about 2 then the nightly vodka and cranberry came out for sanity purpose. At the time I had 4 kids under the age of 7, I was out of my mind and needed something to calm me down.

    My Grams always called it Happy Hour at home, because mom got happy with in the hour, and if mama is happy the house is happy.

    I am a constant drinker!:-) Coffee til noon, diet coke with lunch, ice tea until dinner and hot herbal tea in the evening. A margarita a few times a year and savor every drop of it when on the road!
