Alcoholic Mothers

Cheers Mom! Do You Drink on a Daily Basis?

Sippy cups aren't for Chardonnay, but a coffee cup might be. Friday's 20/20 episode featured moms who tapped the bottle on a frequent basis while raising their babes. The mothers drank wine at the park, at playdates, and even while driving their children with the beverage hidden in a thermos. The shocking (to some) report followed three women who struggle with sobriety because of the pressures of daily life working or staying at home. The show also included an interview with recovering alcoholic Stephanie Wilder-Taylor, the author famed for writing about her irreverent take on motherhood in Naptime Is the New Happy Hour and other popular titles that the mom masses rallied around. Being a mom isn't easy, do you drink?

I have an occasional glass of wine. I wouldn't ever want to drink daily...I just don't have the urge. Just sometimes I really crave that beer. I usually only drink at home, though. So no driving involved..(people who drink and drive are assholes...IMO...not to speak of a mother who drinks WHILE her kids are in the car)

drinking while driving is downright illegal, let alone the sign of serious alcoholism! i think having a drink a few nights a week is fine, or during a Friday afternoon playdate to have a margarita would be okay in my books!

I drink two or three times a week. Sometimes, that includes a cocktail at the end of the night while I'm putting my daughter to bed. I never drink when I'll be driving my daughter anywhere (which sucks, because some of those family dinners would be much more bearable if I could have a margarita).

If you're smuggling your wine in a Thermos while driving I think you have some serious issues. One or two drinks here or there I think is fine.
