I drink once a week with friends, sharing a bottle of wine.  Am I okay?

Probably unless?: Believe it or not problems with alcohol are not always defined by amount drank, but instead by what happens to you when you do drink. Do you engage in risky behavior, does it create conflict with others? I'm streching of course because i would suspect this would only be about 2 drinks max, right? Doing that once a week is likely ok for people with out drinking problems, or serious medical issues. ...Read more

The phrasing of your question suggests that 1) you are tolerant of alcohol and 2) someone is concerned about your drinking and the effects it has on you. Both are concerning for addiction.
