Breaking the Wine Habit

I go without wine for a few days and it doesn't bother me physically but it sure does mentally. It's like a switch goes off around 8:00 p.m. and I just want to relax with a glass of wine which usually turns into 3 and, of course, a little eating too. This is messing up my weight loss. Any suggestions?

I just say NO CHOICE to wine Monday through Friday, and lightly indulge over the weekend. I used to measure out 4 oz everynight when I felt like it and I actually got used to being satisfied with that amount. I also don't buy more than one bottle at a time. All this has helped and believe me it was so hard to get to this point. But I decided loosing weight was MORE important.

I also have a wine habit. It is terrible because I associate it with doing chores. Have dishes, laundry and dinner to do? Buy a bottle of wine and turn on the radio, it is much more fun! I have cut it out for weight loss and I am SO cranky about housework now.
I don’t really have any ideas other than ‘saving’ calories for wine and that only works if you are able to stick to the plan after a glass. I can’t, so when I really want it I have been buying the small bottles at Cost plus, one at a time. Waste of money and time buying them like that, but then I can’t overindulge.
Today is a bad scale day and I am about ready to chuck this whole weight loss mission and celebrate its demise with a bottle of bubbly!
Is there a team for winos?

Hi there,
apparently there's some junk in this thread, anyway back to the topic:
I hear what you're saying concerning alcohol. I don't have a drinking problem, but figured out that alcohol is a trigger for binging for me. So I also try to do without and know how hard it is. My all-time favorite summer drink is Campari-Soda, I just love it! And when I met some girl friends yesterday night I had one and what happend? I smoked a cigarette - even though I stopped smoking years ago. Actually that's no problem, but I'm afraid that this will lead me back into old habits. So I thought about buying alcohol free Campari - there is this Italian drink called Aperol, it's the same color and taste, just without alcohol. And I thought about arranging it in a nice cocktail glass and stuff. So maybe that does the trick, if others are drinking and you just don't want to go with only water.
Other ideas are more than welcome, too! ;-)
kind regards, Sonja (oh-lilian)

It really is a tough habit

I know what you all mean. A glass of wine after you get home from work, ahhhh - relaxing! Or that 9 o'clock poke that says "It's time for a nice glass of wine to unwind".

Iwould break both of these habits in a second if I could get passed those moments without the "habit" thing kicking in.

What I really need is to be accountable to someone, because if I say I will do something, then I do it. But if I have no good reason to do something, that's when I slip, in spite of good intentions.

breaking the wine habit

I love a glass of wine with my dinner but I've cut it out as best I can, occasionally I take a sip from my husband's glass. I've taken to drinking white wine in reference to red and I spritz it with sparkling water. Not sure how many ww points but it's ok and it helps beat the feeling of deprivation. best of luck.
