Fact: Drinkers Have More Fun......

Spotted this piece of research from Norway, unearthed by beer blogger the Pub Curmudgeon, showing that teetotallers suffer higher levels of depression than those that enjoy the occasional tipple.

According to the research…….

'Scientists found that the happiest people were drinkers who averaged two glasses of wine, a bottle of beer, or a shot of spirits a week'

“In a society where use of alcohol is the norm, abstinence might be associated with being socially marginalised and at increased risk for mental disorders.”

Now I'm no scientist but what I understand from this is that popping down the pub for a beer with friends is a normal and sane thing to do....maybe the nanny state in the UK should consider that when they want to increase beer tax and reduce us all to supping it out of a plastic glass
