Just wondering who here comes home after work and has a brew everyday or evening ? My fiance tells me thats its not good to have a brew everyday and that I drink to much because I have one or two with dinner or after dinner. Yes she may be right that its not good after dinner but before dinner or with dinner in my opinion is not that bad. Now if your drinking 6-10 beers every night that may not be that good for you but I have read 1-2 is not that bad. I try not to drink every night for that matter and I am also trying to have 1-2 beers every other night.

Help me out here so I can keep her quiet...

I try to have atleast one every night. Nothing wrong with it and studies have shown that a little beer or wine every day or every other day is good for you. At the very least it is better for you than drinking a bunch of teeth rotting sodas everyday.

I'm one to two every night...maybe three, but not more than that on a weeknight.

Guilty most of the time, but not always. Sometimes I don't drink for days.

I average one or two a night and there are a lot of days that I have none. I'd guess my weekly average is about 7 pints.

I am at the 1-3 range every week-night. +1 on the health. I don't drink soda or generally anything other than coffee, beer, and juice/water. I am positive this is WAY healthier than people who drink soda. Beer is good for you, plain and simple. I just had my liver checked and it is in way better shape than most people. I think I was placed in the 90th percentile for liver and kidney health. So answer that with the your drinking is bad for you.

It is a touchy subject though. People who come from homes where alcohol was abused or homes where alcohol was treated as evil have a natural aversion to it. Even if they drink on weekends it is not normal to just have a beer just because. Try to help her get over this view point by pointing out how healthy it is and how when enjoyed responsibly is not something to be looked at as a bad thing. I drink beer at all times of the day on weekends, because I would rather have a beer than another beverage.

At the same time, I don't go get plowed very often so I have a strong argument about my responsible drinking.

I TRY to drink some every night....that **** isn't going to drink itself ya know!

And as far as her telling you what is or isn't good for you...keep in mind that her heart is in the right place...but her head may not be. Even with studies that prove that a moderate amount of alcohol can be good for you, no doctor in his right mind will admit it, because then when you end up a lush, you sue the Dr. for telling you it's ok.
Seriously. I'm here for BEER
