I recently have come to the conclusion that I love wine. I truly love it. Once 6 pm comes around, I feel this overwhelming need to pour myself a glass of wine. I continue to work for a few hours while drinking my 3 glasses of evening wine. I enjoy this part of my day immensely.
Then a friend of mine referred to a mutual friend of ours as an alcoholic. I asked her "Why do you think she is an alcoholic?" Her response was simple. Our friend drinks wine every evening. Well, I was taken back and felt myself become defensive on her part. Then I realized she wasn't an alcoholic, she just loves wine, like I do.
My realization is this: If you aren't craving a glass of wine by the end of the day, you aren't working hard enough during the day.
