thank you for the info and comments. I do the same thing.. only red wine, drink throughout the day, by evening I've consumed a bottle. have been wanting to stop for a while. I'm hoping that being a part of this blog will help give me the support to go and do something 'healthy' instead of turning to the wine and giving myself false relaxation/calm. not to mention that it is an expensive habit... one I'd like to enjoy only while out for dinner. becomes difficult to enjoy a glass of wine when you drink a bottle daily. I've noticed my breath is smelling a lot like acetone too - my tongue gets real tingly now. and, I am starting to worry about diabetes.
