Funny after many years of a few beers or a cup or two of wine per night, I lost the pleasure of drinking. I drink water and green tea mostly now. Its like I began to notice I stopped buying beer like a year ago and I would pour wine in a glass but only drink half a cup. I still buy wine, but may only drink half a glass every other night. My wife will drink a glass a night. I will drink when eating outside like one cup of wine or a beer however. Anyone experience a loss of interest in wine or beer in a sudden way ? Just curious ? I simply lost the enjoyment of the taste and pleasure of drinking seemingly over night and its been like a year.

Our tastebuds change as we age. That may be it. Or maybe you have become sensitive to the alcohol?

I've never liked it. I will use wine to cook with, but I don't like to drink it..

Probably a good change since drinking can be awfully expensive. You are probably saving a lot of money.

I used to drink an "average" amount. Then I moved to Hawaii and lost all interest in booze. In a hot climate, liquor just makes you hotter. Even after moving back to California, I haven't regained my taste for wine etc.

There are certain prescription drugs that can have this affect on some people, notably some anti-depressants.

I must be saving between 15-45 dollars a week. Yes, that adds up over 52 weeks. Also as an other person added, I take prescriptions for hypertension and diabetes, maybe that did it.

I've lost the taste for alcohol as well. Even the cocktails, and I use to loooove a cocktail. Not to mention I get a horrible headache after a couple of sips. The alcohol taste seems much stronger to me. I may have a wine spritzer when I eat out, and I don't eat out that often. I attribute the loss to getting older. I'm not on prescription medicine.

You drink a cup of wine?

Considering a serving of wine is 4 ounces and a cup is 8 ounces, you are actually having two servings of wine.

Not everyone drinks to get drunk.

I decided that my evening glass of wine was getting to be too regular, so I stopped drinking for awhile. And now I don't really care for it as much. I still like a glass of a nice red with a steak, but yeah - kinda lost my taste for most of it, and half the glass is usually left when I'm done with dinner (and is utterly unappealing on its own).

A wine glass I mean, a normal portion.
