How to solve binge drinking

A man and his cider
On Breakfast this morning, a girl gave a novel excuse for her binge drinking.

They only sell cider in big bottles and I have to drink it all because I can’t take it home cos my mum will see it.

Vicky PollardYes, she was from Bristol. And yes, she sounded just like Vicky Pollard.

But surely if drinks like White Lightening were sold in smaller quantities, this problem would be avoided? Vicky wouldn’t have had to ‘drink up’ before going home. And even if she was still thirsty, a second trip to the off-licence would have doubled her chances of being ID’d.

    They used to sell Di White (as we call it in the wescuntree) in small bottles. That didn’t stop everyone I know getting leahered on it. Then we moved on to Strongbow Super. £1.09 a can in the old days. Sometimes you could get 6 for a fiver. That was enough to get 3 of us drunk before we went to the pub. Smashing.
