(The Sun (Ireland))   Survey says one fifth of Irish households with pre-school aged children binge drink weekly due to lockdown stress. Since this is the Sun, it's probably more like 110% drink at least a fifth of booze every night regardless of whether they have kids   (thesun.ie) divider line

Don't let me down, Ireland.  You're my only hope to justify my bar tab.

thealgorerhythm: Enigmamf: At least they were using a higher threshold to call "binge drinking"- "six or more standard drinks in one sitting". That's a pretty serious amount. I've seen reports that consider as low as 3 drinks a "binge".

Define "sitting"

Since I work at home drinking at the office is only 20 seconds from drinking in my yard.


I've been drinking "in the office" since March!
