    Someone was complaining that this Forum was less Fun and more Motorhommy nowadays. With these new drink recommendations can we expect even less Fun, since we are such a responsible and sensible group of individuals?

    Perhaps the Forum could be renamed Motorhome Nearly Dry Not Quite as Much Fun?

    As N&N says, drink as much as you like but sleep it off and make sure you leave enough time before you drive. (y)

    Oh, I missed that bit, it doesn't apply when you're abroad or in the van! That's good, I was getting a little worried.

    I'm following the new advice of drinking only one glass of wine a day to the letter...

    Currently I'm up to Aug 31 2019...:)

    The operative word is "recommendation".

    How old are most of us ? How dead are most of us ? We live in a world of too many experts, all out for their few minutes of glory.

    You have to die some time, now that is not up for debate. You can die pissing yourself in an old people's home or go out in glory in your MH.

    moritori te salutant.

    I'm after quotations for flotation collars. Push me out into Lake Garda then that long curving flaming arrow hits the spot.

    That sounds a little OTT! I do hope I'm not approaching in the opposite direction.

    @Dorwyn

    the very best years of my life have been alcohol free ..
    when drinking I never found alcohol to be much fun.. .. it destroyed many years of my life.. cost me my family, job an almost my sanity .

    .. why do you need drink to have fun ?

    just asking

    I saw a follow up article on the BBC from a doctor in Scotland, putting the drinking issue into perspective

    If you smoke you have a 50/50 chance of dying early due the effects

    Drink 2 drinks a day you have a 1/200 chance of dying early due to the effects

    I think it is good to be aware, but wrong to try and scare us, the real effects of moderate drinking do not appear to justify the proposal, there are plenty of tales of folk reaching 100 and telling us they have had a drink every day since they were young :)

    Total respect to those that don't drink for whatever reason, but I will continue to enjoy mine (y)

    I cant cut down..................... I just cant........................................ I dont drink at all so its not possible.

    What I am confused with is why do people assume we can't have fun without drink ?

    I think they out to demonise the drinkers as they have done with the smokers.I think everything in moderation isn`t harmful, it`s when it takes over your life.:):):)

    Yes - and just think if they can tax alcohol like they have cigarettes - 'For your own good of course' They will be onto a real winner and.....'all in our best interests'
