Ok, true confession. I had to look this one up.
noun tem·per·ance \ˈtem-p(ə-)rən(t)s, -pərn(t)s\
Simple Definition of temperance
: the practice of drinking little or no alcohol
: the practice of always controlling your actions, thoughts, or feelings so that you do not eat or drink too much, become too angry, etc.
Thank you Miriam Webster for that fascinating definition.
To use Temperence in a sentence:
Wendy has always been a bit of a wild child, she is not particularly good at Temperence. Or
Wendy has always displayed her passions for food, wine, and dancing; Temperence is not her strong suit.
Obviously, because I had to look it up.
