I reckon my intake has at least doubled during this time. Wine is the killer for me

Need to make an effort to cut down 

I cut the cigs out completely 1 year 7 months and 22 days ago (not that I'm counting or owt) so I know that I can do it

Well you won’t be cutting down on Friday night pal. Sample a few of leiths finest Establishments.  Just remember to bring your scottish accent with you

Morrisons do a catpiss 2% lager £1.10 for 4x440ml.

It's obviously shite but...chilled to within an inch of being frozzen it's no worse than crap like Fosters or Carling.

It's an acceptable halfway house imo - alcohol free shit just doesn't cut it and is often quite expensive.

The best (an oxymoron) of non-alcohol lager I've had was in Spain, Spar's own brand in a light blue 330ml can and about 37 cents apiece. Unlike every other of this ilk, and I've tried them all it actually tasted like real beer albeit pissy weak shit, all the others taste like Supermalt mixed with cold tea and a pipette or two's worth of Skol added last minute.

I used to go in Holts pubs and have two Clausthaler in a pint glass when I was on the wagon in the past, they did them cheap, £1.10ish and it wasn't that bad. Stopped selling them tho' (well they did in my local, which no longer exists anyway).

I find it easier to just give it all a swerve completely - made easier by no match to attend.

Contrary to popular opinion I could do 100 days stood on my head. 😛😋

Hazy Jane 12 for £14 in tesco is this a good deal gents? 

at over 7% and a decent tasting beer, yes, assuming it's 440ml cans

probably still a good deal if 330ml bottles

If that's the 440's, I'm off down there now.

I thought it was reasonable value. I’m going to go through the box the next two nights so shall report back on my thoughts.

Do hazy jane at my place but expensive 

Aye they’re not cheap. Some of this cloud water stuff that folk go on about is over 3quid a tin I think. Fuck that for a game of soldiers. Not paying that for a can to drink at home.  Not a chance

Blimey. Three police cars were parked up round the corner a few weeks ago and eldest stepdaughter swore blind that the coppers took a hysterical woman into our next door neighbours house

Turns out it was the wife of the bloke across the road who was out of sorts. He always seemed a decent sort apart from his overly tight Man City tracksuit that didn’t really show a fat, late 50’s bloke in the best light.

Turns out that Covid Pissheadery hasn’t been good for him. Unable to go to the boozer he’d been necking 3 bottles of wine a night and ended up twatting his Mrs when she said that he couldn’t go back to the boozer when it opened up.

He’s moved out, as has the daughter, the house is up for sale, she’s trying to drop the charges, coppers are saying no.

Bet this is a common theme country wide

Deffo will be an increase in domestic abuse and alcoholism.

Divorce rates will skyrocket too as people realise they can't stand their partners annoying as fuck habits 24/7!

you can easiily pay upwards of £5 a can, sometimes £6

though they tend to be 7%+, sometimes nearer 10%

I know a lad that does most of his supping at home and loves all that cloud water stuff. I dread to think how much he spends a month on the stuff at the prices of it. However, when he does venture out for a drink with us, you try getting the fucker in a round. I can't get my head around it.

There is a boozer in Edinburgh that most folk don’t know about and it does it’s own craft beers. One of them is a 10.8% grapefruit beer. It’s lovely but only served in half pints cos of the strength and it’s about 5quid a half. 
 

but no chance am I paying 5/6 quid for a can to sit at home. Not a hope in hell.

Many years ago, living in Torquay, the nearest pub had a big sign saying that outsiders could only buy a half of their Scrumpy because it was so powerful.

It was a gimmick to tempt in the tourists & flog them strongish cider.

Just had a look shame these places don’t do draft or mini kegs. Cans seems to be in fashion just now eh

Agree to a point, but ill generally not have more than 3 or 4 cans of the good stuff in a night (if i want more, itll be becks or similar)

And ill generally not drink more than one of any particular 4 quid plus can in a sitting
