Beer, not so bad after all........

Today's News of the World (that I obviously read over someone's shoulder, not my own copy.....) reveals the full scale of the Nation's 'binge drinking epidemic'
Apparently 23% of 18-24 year olds have felt ashamed of their appearance when drunk and almost half (48%) have vomited when drunk. No real surprises here - apart from learning that young Geordie's are the most responsible drinkers, who would've thunk - and the NOTW art department are obviously in cahoots with the BBC, because how did they choose to illustrate it? With shots of teens downing double vodka redbulls and copious Jaegerbombs, of course not, they used pint glasses, once again beer is seen as the demon drink.
In fact only 8% of 18 - 24 year old women claim beer as their drink of choice, maybe if more did, opting for a lower ABV choice, there wouldn't be such an epidemic!!
