One glass wonder

on Mar 02, 2007 @ 08:39 pm

Anyone else find that they get completely sauced from one measly glass of wine? I like the european way of having a glass of wine with dinner but about 3/4 through my glass of wine I'm all tipsy. It's embarrassing! Anyone else have this problem?

I can't hold my liquor either on Mar 02, 2007 @ 10:42 pm

But I don't care for wine. I go more for cocktails and mixed drinks (I just discovered the Dos Rio margarita at Applebee's - deelish!) But yeah, I feel it very quickly, before I finish the first glass. It goes right to my legs, like they feel extremely heavy or something, even though I'm sitting down. I don't drink that often, so I figure it is because I am not used to it. So, probably if I had a few drinks every day I would reach the point where I wouldn't feel it aymore after 1. I think I take after my mom - she starts giggling after one glass of booze. But I'm not quite that bad!

We have this joke that my Mom steps on a beer cap and she's loaded. I have the same problem. I guess it runs in the family.

I think I know who you are!

I too can't hold my liquor. Ever since I started having babies my tolerance went from 2-3 drinks/evening to about 1/2! My husband's glad, cheap date.

I'm a member of that club too. I ended up completely sloshed on a glass of cheap wine last night. I'm not a big drinker, and having not had one drop of alcohol since December, I had no idea what to expect. Needless to say, I had driven myself, thinking that I'd have a few sips and drive the 1/2 mile back down in the same state I went up. I used to fair pretty well, and consider myself a responsible drinker. A glass later, and a "Sometime between now and later, I'll be home" my hubby had to come fetch me. I woke up with a miserable case of hangover and embarassement.

Oh, I'm in this club too. One glass of wine or one chocolate martini and i'm just trying to hold it together so noone knows how I'm really feeling. When I was younger it took at least 3 drinks to get to this very same point. Maybe it's age. I can also get a hangover from one glass of wine. Ridiculous!

One glass of wine and I'm very buzzed and may even have a slight headache. Two glasses and the night is over. In fact, for Thanksgiving my bf and I had a friend of ours over for dinner. She and I decided to share a bottle of wine while my bf had beer. B/t the two of us, we couldn't even drink half the bottle!!!

I think I am the cheapest of all cheap drunks. Also because I don't drink. Hah!
