It depends. If I'm drinking alcohol, like wine, yes I'll drink it with dinner. But otherwise I tend to drink just plain water after a meal. If it's breakfast, I won't drink anything at all, because I have cereal with milk, and coffee beforehand.

During!

I can't eat unless I drink something with my meal.

If it's wine or any other alcohol, I have to drink before my meal. I never could eat and drink alcohol.

I will drink during if the meal is extremely dry or if I am choking to death.

I have to have liquid, be it water, iced tea, etc. Sometimes, I have a dry throat and it has to be soothed, oftentimes before my first bite. So, during the meal, that liquid must be there, even if I'm "really getting into it".

I used to not drink with my meal, and since I've moved back to the USA I have changed that habit. Thanks for the thread and thereby bringing it to my attention - time to change back to my old habits
The stomach has to liquefy food before it can send it on to the small intestine. One way or another the stomach will churn the food into liquid whether it is helped with that task or not.

As for ph levels or other considerations of biochemistry the stomach, liver and gallbladder will work to make the contents of the stomach into what the intestines need. We don't have to micromange the issue, but a little liquid can help.

Depends on what I'm drinking. If it's wine we're talking about, then it's likely that I'm drinking a bit before, during AND after dinner.
