124 Pints?

124 pintsI’m all for supporting businesses to help out after the horror that has been the last year, but in all honesty, I was pretty shocked to see this article pop up in the news this week. It’s certainly been in the headlines a fair bit, and I’ve scrolled past it several times in my news feed too.


Admittedly a few lines down the article it suggests that if you don’t want to drink alcohol, you can instead eat crisps, (not a hugely healthier choice), but still, I just don’t agree with the message it’s portraying. For so many of us, we just don’t need that excuse to drink. I certainly didn’t.

I totally agree that we need to support the economy to help us all bounce back, but tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this is a little controversial?

What are your thoughts?
