There Definitely Is One Too Many

For the past few months, I've been heeding the advice of the medical community in that I have been drinking a glass or two of wine every evening, . . . well, it's mostly two glasses and occasionally one. Back to the story, the other night I indulged in an extra glass of wine, number three.

Boy, was that a mistake. Although I was feeling pretty good in the evening, the next day was ass-draggy. Normally, I would go past the limit on a Friday or Saturday evening, when I know that I can sleep in the next day. I suppose I never suffered the consequences having slept them off.

So, the lesson here, kids, is that you should stop at one or two glasses of wine if you have to go to work the next day. That is, if you have a rather strict schedule and are up past your ideal bedtime.

It's possible that you have the liver of an alcoholic, and you wouldn't even feel buzzed after two glasses of wine. If this is the case, are you really drinking for the health benefit? After the second glass, the benefit is gone; the wine does more harm than good. Two glasses of red wine or less, you're doing OK.

While I am on the subject, I have also discovered (see previous post) that if you've had a hard day, it is best to stop after the first glass. Your exhaustion and the second glass of wine can only lead to a semi-conscious stupor. It's best to stay away from blogs and social media if this is the case.
