i love a drink but am trying to get a bit healthier. i've cut out booze on a monday and tuesday night and there are benefits to my mood, but tonight it's thursday and am enjoying a bottle of wine which is slapping me across the face with this question - 'why aren't there any non alcoholic drinks with any depth of flavour or interest?'

is it the slow processes involved in making wine and whisky that give it a depth of flavour, or is it just the variety of wines, whiskies, gins and beers that keep your interest? fuck knows but until they make a non-alcoholic drink that's as stimulatin on the palate then i'm never going to be as healthy as i could be.

...and if they ever could make such an interesting drink then there's an absolute fortune to be made.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

My drink of choice to try and cope with driving: tonic with a dash of bitters. Ice.




Otherwise there's water, I suppose OH WHAT'S THE FUCKING POINT OF WATER etc...
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I know I drink too often but I don't drive for various reasons. The older I get, the less I worry about the effects. Is that just me or is anyone else reaching that point where they just don't really seem bothered and they'd rather sample a broad range of interesting foods and drinks and to hell with the consequences (within reason)?

Yeah. I often see things saying 'x drinks a week will take 47 minutes off your life' and think, 'So fucking what?' In principle I'm just not bothered about when I die. I guess that, counter to this, my major concern is that I'd prefer to die in good health if that makes sense. So if, say, there's a clear evidential link between a certain food or drink and dementia I would probably give that serious thought.
