Are you drinking more alcohol while in self-quarantine than before?


There’s a joke going around that after our self-quarantine days are finished, we’ll all be either overweight or alcoholics.

We’ll ask if you’re eating more than normal in another poll (after all, there’s a lot of time to snack with so much time on our hands). But for now, let’s talk about the consumption of alcohol. It’s easy to imagine that people who enjoy an alcoholic beverage now and then might be tempted to indulge a bit more with so much time spent sitting around their homes — bored, waiting until they can get back to their former lives.

And, of course, there’s a lot of stress with so many people worried about the loss of a job, paying their bills, or catching the virus or having a loved one catch it.

So what about you? Are you hitting the liquor cabinet a little more than usual, or the fridge for yet another cold one? Remember, the poll make take a moment to load, so stand by…

I knew I picked the wrong year to quit drinking…9 years sober now.

I have been busy with a list of ptojects to keep myself from being bored. I will have a glass of wine or a bottle of beer with dinner, according to what it is…

Here in Florida, the virus has been bad but the weather very nice , so we take advantage of it and sit outside on the porch each evening with a glass of wine and try to have a nice moment of stay-at-home!

I usually have a small glass of wine a couple of times a month. Before the quarantine I acquired some canned sangria, and a bottle of Black walnut creme wine. So now, I have one small glass of something every other day or so. Nearing the end of my supply, so I will be going back to normal soon.

Polls aren’t available on my iPad. Had to track down a desktop computer.

Sorry, Ed. Jessica, one of our IT specialists, has this explanation: “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these try and turn it off and see if that fixes the issue.” I hope that works for you. —Diane

Only have an occasional drink when out to dinner. Since we aren’t going out to dinner, not drinking at all.

Still putting away 3 oz of Barcardi Black Rum nightly in two Cuba Libre drinks made with fresh lime and diet cola. That’s been my drink since I first had one celebrating my 21st birthday at the Enlisted Men’s Club in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in 1962. My wife and I returned in our Minnie Winnie from Gulf Shores AL on March 15 and have been self-isolating at our rural home in Stockton MO since then. We have been fortunate; no weight gain and I haven’t succumbed to the evils of excessive alcohol.

Actually not drinking more where I would have had a beer once a month at VFW meetings I have had 3 since the quarantine started, mainly with my pizza or spaghetti dinners. So that’s 1 more than I would usually have.
