No drink – what does it do for you?
There is one aspect of alcohol consumption that’s not mentioned here.
If, say, you’re like Andy, brought up in a pub style and mentality (you never did say why your parents / guardians thought this was a suitable place for your formative years btw) , then food is unlikely to be consumed at the same time as the drink, as say in a restaurant or with the continental style of eating and drinking.
What then, the next morning?
I think you will find there’s a paradigm shift in societies view on drug abuse (alcohol) once you choose to get behind the wheel of a car / van / lorry after consuming any alcohol (whether you feel it’s OK or not, whether your “mates” do, or do not), when it is no longer a private, personal matter.
Similarly, the law is not tolerant of drunk drivers; & nor are we.

Also, I've rented out rooms for many years and seen too many men who thought they didn't have any problems with alcohol (3 pints a night, tops!) and then drove to work, 5 days a week.ozzybmxMember
I have 20yrs of drinking practice honed down to a tee , i'll get pisched twice a week , different nights as im a shift worker . I ride 2-3 times a week and if i can fit it in i'll go to the gym too. I will easily swally 20 stubbies (bottles) on a sitting . I have no problems with that , it doesnt affect my life , i dont really get a hangover BUT if i have an early morning ride planned i will put the "gas" on hold till the evening after the ride . It definately affects your performance IMO – BTW if i cant get smashed i wont touch a beer at all.Posted 8 years agotjr666Member
I have pretty much stopped drinking altogether, the last time I had any kind of alcohol was around November at a Napalm Death gig! Not to say I won't have the odd pint (I love a good Belgian) but its a rarity these days.
To be completley honest I would rather indulge in a nice big J of smelly green stuff than a drink, again though every few months or so 🙂Posted 8 years ago
