Another thread brought to my awareness that I virtually never drink when I eat. I have plenty of water throughout the day and enjoy a beverage on its own or with a snack, but when it's a meal, I concentrate on food and never drink anything with it... Is that unusual?

usually I have water. Don't you ever need a little help swallowing some foods down?

No; that doesn't seem to be a problem for me! I can swallow food just fine (sometimes too well).

With good meals I have a good wine. With plain-old meals like a sandwich, I drink sparkling water....not the over-priced Perrier, etc., just any carbonated unflavored water. I hate having still water with meals.

Very unusual. A drink is part of the experience for most of us. Meal doesn't seem complete without it.

I have water with dinner, after a cocktail or two before. I might have wine going at the same time. This is in a restaurant. At home, I don’t really have anything but water during dinner.

It depends: I like something to drink with "dry" dishes like pizza, steak and fries, shish-kabob with rice etc. I would have beer or wine.
With "wet" dishes that have plenty of gravy I might have a drink, but I don't feel like I need one, and sometimes I just don't order anything.
I never order iced tap water and don't care for iced tea at a restaurant. So, it will be bottled sparkling water or beer/wine.

Yes I agree. The drink is part of the meal. I usually have a nice icey soda or lemonade . Plus a glass of cold water.

We always have milk with a meal at home. Water or wine when we're out and about. I've never heard of anyone not having something to drink at each meal.

As a kid, it was milk AND juice at breakfast and milk at lunch and dinner. My dad also had coffee. Sometimes my mom had tea. No pop or alcohol in the house growing up.
