Whoopsadaisy posted a post about her issues with the demon drink. She’s not in favour of going out and getting blottoed or drinking just to get hammered, a culture that is all to prevalent in Ireland today.
Now, I don’t quite agree with her viewpoint. I like alcohol. I like it a lot. I even like that our nation has a reputation for being drinkers. Of all the reputations we could have, I think it’s one of the nicer ones. We are the drunken poets of the world and I do take a certain pride in that.
That said, I have mentioned recently that I haven’t been feeling the best, so I have decided to combat this by trying to eat better, exercise (a bit) and cut down on my alcohol intake. I’m not giving it up. I don’t want to – I enjoy it too much. But being drunk on a school night or having six-packs more than three nights a week is possibly taking its toll. Moderation is key…I think.
