NEED ADVICE ON DRINKING WINE RESPONSIBLY?

I CAN HELP

Though a particularly delicate subject that only a few 'wine experts' opt to address, drunkenness among consumers of wine (among other forms of alcohol) is hardly an uncommon occurrence.

Make no mistake, wine can be a very addictive substance, one which can ruin the lives of even the most light-hearted of casual drinkers if certain situations present themselves.

WINE AS AND ADDICTIVE SUBSTANCE

As a general rule and (somewhat forgone) conclusion, most people addicted to alcohol are not especially selective about which type of alcoholic beverage they choose to drink in order to meet their craving(s). This means that there are plenty of unfortunate individuals that include wine as a substance of choice for abuse.

If you think you might have a problem of drinking too much wine in excess, on account of feeling that you absolutely need to drink it, I would strongly advise you to seek help; you might be addicted to alcohol ...

USEFUL ADVICE ON DRINKING WINE RESPONSIBLY

For any wine enthusiast, it is very important to remember that, for every individual (depending largely upon size, physical fitness, and gender), there is a certain amount of wine that one can safely consume at a given sitting.

Straightforward advice: be mindful!
