In my personal philosophy, if you've suffered any form of addiction before stay away from all types of liquor. A single glass of wine will eventually lead to two, three, and four more. Once your mind and body system gets a taste of liquor it will crave for more and eventually lead you back to addiction. However, if you can handle alcohol comfortably without the urge to keep on drinking, then a glass of wine at the end of the day is perfectly fine. But not for me.
