- All these threads about getting drunk and pub crawls…
Young ‘uns are rubbish at booze these days. Show them a couple of Bacardi breezers and a shot of Malibu and they are falling about all over the place, then complain about having the worst hangover evah the next day. At least us more ‘seasoned’ drinkers can handle our ale, and know when enough is enough.

Not me but sadly I don’t have the ability to drink shit loads then feel great the next day anymore. It’s a good thing as one of reasons is I cut down massively on the amount I drank, I had to it wasn’t doing me any good. So I’ll settle for having the odd hangover these days.Posted 4 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
I find the absolute worst thing is when you get to the stage that means all you want to do is go to bed and sleep, except you can’t sleep ‘cos everything is spinning. Spinning so much you have to hold on to the bed. You also know you are in for an absolutely horrible day in the morning.
Last time I did that was about this time last year, the night before doing the London to Brighton off road ride 🙄Posted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
The new ‘light’ beers at 2.8% are a useful tool in combating the next day hell.Posted 4 years ago
They dont taste of much , granted and this will invoke keyboard machismo tales of ‘drinking my own wee, be stronger than that rubbish’ …but if you have to function the next day , either for work or say a long drive in iffy weather they have their place.
At an all day BBQ , drink them long with a top and you can still quench your thirst without looking like a non drinker .
I have a theory that once you get to 21 each year the hangover takes 1 hour longer to get over , so at 41 thats 20 hours of feeling fuzzy and potentially missing out on stuff.
Alledegedly the blue Becks alcohol free Lager is paletable as well.
In my effort to reduce my units to an acceptable level ( 17 last fri night ) I might try a blend of Becks Blue and a 2.8% Carling Zest.
Dont want to stop drinking, I am just irresponsible and dont know when to stop and 2 pints is never enough.binnersSubscriber
Harry – I regard our Monday nights as a sort of pub crawl. One for lightweights. Its been going on all year. We’re touring the drinking establishments of the north west, one a week, having a pint or two in each, then we go home until next week. And if there are chip butties involved then we’re ecstatic!
Nowadays if I have more than a few pints in one sitting then feel like I’m pregnant with twins, so tend to then switch to red wine. There has never been a recorded incidence of this tactic going well. I now just have to face facts. If I drink, then I’ll fall asleep way before I approach anything like ‘wasted’Posted 4 years agoMrSmithMember
Don’t understand why people want to spend money just to feel ill and embarrass themselves.
Because other people will then realise how much of a real man they are and appreciate their ability to drink alcohol to excess.Posted 4 years ago
It used to be displays of dexterity with a sword and horsemanship that affirmed your rank amongst peers, now in the modern world alcohol consumption marks you out as a man of good character, before sodomy was legalised you would be hung for not being able to imbibe large quantities of alcohol as this would mean you were a ‘gayer’
Society still clings on to this outdated historical notion.
