Eight days a week

I recently concluded a poll asking the question “On how many days in a typical week do you have at least one alcoholic drink?” There were 48 responses, broken down as follows:

None: 0 (0%)
1: 6 (12%)
2: 1 (2%
3: 3 (6%)
4: 7 (15%)
5: 6 (12%
6: 6 (12%)
7: 19 (40%)

Good to see that there are no teetotallers reading this blog! Given that 19 people, or two-fifths, said they had a drink every day, it’s clear that official guidelines are being widely and cheerfully ignored. And over three-quarters said they had a drink on more days than they didn’t.

    Poor bastards. They are doomed. If only they'd realise it and stop enjoying themselves, they'd enjoy themselves so much more.
