Went to the GP with a cold that had lasted for weeks and she asked asked if I was an excessive drinker. I said no. She said how much do you drink and I said 2 -3 glasses of wine most nights. She said while that does not technically make you an alcoholic it does make you an excessive drinker. Now these are not the huge wine glasses we are having - we get 6 glasses out of a bottle and according to BUPA's website that is only 18 units and not the 2 and half times the recommended weekly limit she told me. I am really worried now - anyone with actual medical knowledge advise me what to say to her when I go back for blood tests as my wife says I should complain to practice manager.
