your 35 bucks isnt bad at all, most any one that drinks wine everyday is going to spend more than that in a month, even if they stick to the cheap generic $3 wines sold in places like Walmart.
when any of the men in my family drank, it turned them into mean, raging violent creatures. my late father included. when i was single and drinking, i become the same way. i quit cold turkey, the year before i got married, and have never had a drop since. not so much a moral thing with me, or even a health matter, i didn't want to be that other person.
i am told you still get the exact same health advantage of red wine by drinking dark grape juice, i think others use the wine as excuse for drinking in general, but that's cool too.
