What would you recommend as drinks for social occasions on a regular day during the Slow Carb diet? I know I can have a glass of Red Wine, but just water from that point onwards isn't very appealing (and knowing the sanitary conditions of some of the absolute dives in this area, probably not too healthy).

I would no...

I'm a 45 year old father of 3, and I enjoy getting together with friends and consuming alcohol on the weekends. It seems like everyone out there will have 2 drinks once in a while, and never let go a bit more then that. Does anyone else out there feel the same way, or do I need to check myself in?
