unless you have a problem of some kind or are very, very small and haven't eaten, you are imagining things. Everyone has a different toleration to most things, a sip or two of 8% alcohol probably wouldn't even affect a child. BTW, I am not suggesting anyone test this by giving a toddler a drink.

I've just had a few sips of wine and it feels like I'm drunk I'm 45 and I do like a drink at night some nights just to wind down but every now and then it only takes one glass for me to feel drunk.its not a nice feeling.but some times I can drink a full bottle and not feel anything.and some times after one glass I can end up being sick.its very confusing

More likely feeling the effects of the sugar than the alcohol.

Took the words right out of my mouth.


That's exactly what it is when it happens to me.
