How much do you drink?

Recommended Posts

Guest Bobby

I could take it or leave it in Oz because it was mainly lager but with the ale in London is more to my taste with a choice of thousands of ales from different micro-brewers that I cannot stop drinking the bloody stuff :eek:

The advice weekly of 21 units a week for a bloke is a joke, I am averaging 3 times that.:shocked:

 

how much do you pour down the old gullet a week.?

The Tartan Army were in town at the weekend so my drink consumption went through the roof. Six bottles I had over the weekend. Not bad going for a teetotaler. :cute:

I'm clueless when it comes to Ales, Biers and Lagers. Never developed a tast for drink. It's not easy when you're Scottish and don't drink. People look at you as if you have some infectious disease.

Never mind being Scottish Afro, if you don't drink at all you get some funny looks, full stop. I can still have a laugh and a great time without the booze.

 

Cheers Tony.

It's when you go around someones house and they offer you a stubbie all the time:eek: when all you want is a cup of tea, I never refused the stubbie though.:cute:

You need to calm yourself Booby It'll catch up with you in the end! It's a sign of having to much time on your hands probably something to do with the english weather nothing else to do:biggrin:

 

I probably just about hit my units quota each week (then some occasionally):twitcy::twitcy:

Too much probably....

 

My weakness is nz suavy blanc, and Stella at weekends. Likely to be nudging the limit, then maybe a bit more. You see the reason is, I'm constantly on a quest to find the best beers (for me anyway) from around the world. I'm a fan of.....leffe (6.5%), coopers sparkling, Czech lagers, some great Aussie Amber ales, singha, tiger, crowny, english ales........

You see my problem?

Stopped drinking nearly 2 years ago as I'd started some new medication which said to avoid it and haven't touched a drop since.

Saves me a damn fortune at the price of the stuff here.

The Mrs enjoys a drink and it doesn't bother me at all.

Plus how many hide behind the drink??

When I was drinking it was more out of habit.

I could walk away from it easily. Drinking is more of a social thing for me. I probably only drink 2-3 times a month but I do consume large amounts when I do lol.

Why do some people get aggressive when they drink while others get happy and friendly ?

One of the great mysteries of life.

 

As I've got a bit older and wiser I try to make sure I stop drinking when I've had enough.

Can you stop when you know you should stop or do you keep going ?


I want it all, and I want it now.

Because whatever they do is their true personality, people let down their pretences and gaurds, read it a few times.

exactly right bobby

alcohol causes dis-inhibition, kind of like stripping away all the layers of 'cladding' that you've developed as an adult, and showing your true nature. I believe people who become aggressive when drunk are not very nice people deep down, but have somehow managed to cover it up

This is true. Well from what I've seen from people I know. I'm just more confident when drunk (but who isn't) am usually a happy drunk, sometimes clumsy lo.
