I used to drink A LOT every day - lived in outback Qld, then western NSW and drinking was a daily routine. I could not keep weight off when I kept drinking - so many empty calories and such a drain on the willpower.

I gave up totally, cold turkey, as did my European husband for whom daily drinking was a way of life. But we could not maintain motivation for preparing meals and exercising when drinking. We both miss it, :( but luckily rarely at the same time, so we haven't weakened.

If you just want to cut back a lot but need a taste now and then, you could try red or white wine half and half with water (flat or fizzy).
