Health puritans wants us to stop drinking ‘poison’

by | 2nd, January 2013

YOU boozing in January? Cancer Research UK (CRUK) doesn’t want you to. It’s Dryathlon invites non-drinking drinkers to donate al money they would have spent on booze to fund Cancer Research UK

How about Dry January, the Alcohol Concern:

Feel better. Save money. Make a difference. Your chance to ditch the hangover, reduce the waistline, and save the pennies. Your mission: to avoid that cheeky after work pint, that glass of wine on the sofa, or that big boozy night out, for the whole month. Make a real difference to the lives of those harmed through alcohol misuse by getting family and friends to sponsor you and raise money for Alcohol Concern.

Good one. As the party ends you must go dry. And stop eating that. And run. The British Liver Trust demands it:

The trust’s chief executive, Andrew Langford, said: “It’s not about a quick fix in January, to repair the liver and keep it healthy, people need to follow our three-step plan all-year round: 1) Take two to three days off alcohol every week; 2) get regular exercise; 3) cut down on sugar and fat.”

What is drinking makes you feel better, gets you ahead at work and keeps your brain active? What if you just enjoy it? The experts make a living telling you what to do and what not to do. Ignore them all. You know your limit. And if you don’t, keep a bucket handy…
