    I think that it is very much up to the person Nicola. I am an alcoholic so do not drink alcohol at all anymore but that is my choice. If you do feel that it is too much then cut it down fast, before you end up in the shit that I'm in.

    Please see my sight … -alcoholic

      It is so personal and only one way in which we take risks or put pressure on our bodies. Glad that you have made a choice to take care of yourself in this way, thank you for sharing.

    In my opinion drinking a bottle every night is absolutely too much. Especially because of the every night part. A glass of wine every day at lunch or as chill drink at the evening is ok I think. Drinking a whole bottle? A good path to alcoholism and you could be there without even realising it.

    Too much, yes.  Did it start out as a full bottle of wine a night, or has it progressive reached the full bottle level.  Either way that is too much alcohol to be good for the body...the liver in particular.

    Having been part of an alcoholic family as a child, I would definitely recommend that this is too much and to stop before the person can't stop.

      I guess for most people it starts out as less or less of a habit and then it becomes routine. I am sure that it must be a strain on the body in many ways: something that might help would be to abstain and then recognise that you have no hangover?

    Yes. For a good heart and for your health, it is suggested you only drink one glass a day. However, you can get the same result with red grapes. Beer is only advised for one glass about twice a week. (Beer gives women bigger boobs and guys bigger bellies.)

    Well, it depends on the wines and on the drinkers. Most bottles of wine are not worthy as a drinking companion. Most drinkers are not worthy of drinking a bottle of wine. And if you really appreciate a bottle of good wine, a glass of wine per night should be sufficient.

      I agree that drinking alcohol becuase you appreciate the taste it a better reason to drink than any other, how could you help someone to begin to notice the taste again - do you think that would help?

      It's a difficult question. Usually a good taste is an outcome of virtues. Thus, in cases of addiction, abstention is required. How long? In my humble opinion, as long as one is accustomed to repetitive drinking.

    The comments are really interesting and echo how I feel. I am not drinking at the moment as I am, very happily, a breastfeeding mother! But I know several couples who are struggling with this issue - because one of them drinks about this amount in units (i.e. the equivalent in spirits) and the other worries about it. In some social groups and some work groups the culture is to drink heavily and regularly and it is hard to help someone see that this is unusual and something to question if those around them are also behaving in the same way...

    Yes, wine is very good for our sin and health but overdose is bad. You should have to read this … log?page=2

    Two glasses of organic wine can be healthy for you each day, yet not a whole bottle, that's too much.

    A few puffs of pot is healthy too. Too much of anything is bad for you.
