Do you moderate your drinking around your family?

Do you feel like you need to moderate your drinking when you are around your family, specifically during the holidays? I enjoy a few drinks on the weekends and occasionally with dinner during the week. If out with a friend we will probably share a bottle of wine. When I am with my family (4 of us total), they would never imagine drinking more than one bottle of wine for all of us. If I go for an after dinner cocktail I am immediately judged. Little do they know I am having many more drinks when catching up with friends later that night. Do you adjust your ways in the presence of your family or just do your thing and let the judgement rage?
