    Can a few glasses of wine relieve unwanted stress?

    I have been really stressed lately and I am finding that a few glasses of wine relieve my stress and make me feel less concerned about things. I have never really been a drinker but lately I have had a lot of terribly tragic things happen in my life and I want to drown my sorrows. In fact I have had a few glasses over the past few hours. Would you be worried about someone doing this? I am sleeping better now and want to know if anyone else thinks that a few glasses of wine can be medicinal?

    I know for fact that it is safe for women to indulge in red wine while pregnant, and beer while breast feeding. I see nothing wrong with consumer some wine to relax...as long as equal amounts of water are being consumed.

    Wine does relax you and it is recommended to drink several glasses each day to help fight heart disease.  I'm far from being a doctor but I did have my heart doctor tell me that wine is good for me to drink.  I have seen commercials advising a grown man to drink 3 to 5 glasses each day and women 2 to 3 glasses each day.  It sure made me feel better.  Coming to think of it, I haven't had any for a while. mmmm.

    it will helps you to be relaxed  for a few minutes or hours but doesn't give you the solution of the problem.so it would be good to share your problems with your friends or your family..i am sure someone will suggest you great..and you will find yourself so much relaxed and free minded for ever..

    Wine is relaxing, and it can be healthful as well. That's especially so of red wine, which has a higher reservatrol component. A couple of glassesful a day is plenty for anyone, though, considering that modern vinting methods yield wines with an alcohol content twice that of past generations. Drink a fifth a night, and you've got a problem coming. Moderation is the watchword.

    Of course wine is relaxing...

    And the history is wonderful as well:
