    From a health standpoint, 1-2 glasses / day should be ok. Men's Health recently ran an article on the health benefits of moderate alcohol consumption.

    Some cultures drink wine with every dinner, so I think if you probably grew up in such a culture, then it would be fine, but if you just suddenly pick up the habit, then they may actually have a drinking problem.

    Yes. The problem is not being able to finish the bottle.

    "Though people have long believed that a glass or two of wine can be good for your heart, the new study, conducted in conjunction with researchers in the U.S., Canada, and France, shows that the cancer risks far outweigh any heart-healthy benefits.
    No public health body or clinical body recommends that people start drinking to improve their health...."

    it's long been known that ETOH is a carcinogen. drink if u wna, just don't fool urself thinking it's not harmful in any amt.

    Personally I don't see much of an issue with it. My thing is when you start doing it excessively to the point when you are drunk all the time then you've got problems. But I am the type of person who can do a whole bottle and still be alright. I personally have a strong drug and alcohol tolerance and when I drink I usually finish the bottle if its wine.

    Although personally I prefer beer.

    If I had that much every night I would find going to the gym such a struggle. But, I only drink about once a month now so any amount of drinking seems like a lot.

    A few years ago I would be in the pub until it closed 5 nights a week icon_twisted.gif

    I learned a while back that Italians (Europeans and not Americans) drink wine nightly with meals and leisure. If I spoke the language, I think I would do well in Italy. icon_biggrin.gif

    Half a bottle is 2 or 3 glasses. That's acceptable. The fact that he doesn't finish the bottle himself (as you imply) means he has restraint, and is not an alcoholic.

    Do you literally mean EVERY night? Even I don't do that (southbeach1500 will have a stroke to hear it). So how many glasses of wine does he have in a week?
