So, of course alcohol is never an excuse for acting like a complete idiot, but occasionally you gotta think of the effects.

Frank told me:

• Alcohol will often exaggerate whatever mood you're in when you start drinking.

-> Well there is already a big problem. Moods can be so indescribable, sometimes you're not just one mood, you're twelve, so with so many mixed emotions all emphasized at once the confusion can lead to relatively irrational decisions without thinking of consequences.

• Alcohol is a relaxant so, in moderation, it can reduce feelings of anxiety and inhibitions, making you feel more sociable.

-> There's another problem, losing inhibitions, losing conscious thought process, acting on impulse or rather not be entirely aware of what it is you are doing.

• It takes your body an hour to process one unit of alcohol.

-> And well by that time you may already have plowed through five.

Thank you Frank for the effects.
Some of Franks risks include:

• Feeling out of control.

• Appearing to be getting better at holding your drink could be a sign of dependance.

• Can make you mouthy, argumentative and aggressive.

• Alcohol poisoning.

I'm pretty sure most people have experienced or witnessed these alcohol induced effects.
So sure, you can't blame alcohol, but you can't rule it out as a contributing factor.

If you don't believe me, just ask FRANK.


  1. HEYYYYY, I'm SURE I clicked post comment... why dint it post my comment?

    oh well, I'll summarise: that line about being twelve moods and not just one made me cackle a lot.

  2. "Tickets this way for the Chatsworth Express
    Come and watch pikeys making a mess
    Of the lives they were given by him upstairs
    And kids they're convinced aren't actually theirs

    What sound on earth could ever replace
    Kids needing money and wives in your face
    Cos this, people reckon, and me included,
    Is why pubs and drugs were kindly invented

    To calm us all down, stop us going mental
    These are Chatsworth Estate's basic essentials
    We are worth every penny, we're grinding your axes
    You sit on our head, but you pay the taxes

    Imagine a Britain without Chatsworth buccaneers
    We'll come on your face for the price of a beer
    Make poverty history, cheaper drugs now
    Make poverty history, cheaper drugs now!"

    S'alll goood ma darlin...we're doing fine and it's all cool until our livers cripple and our noses fall right off. Until then, we'll just keep using our crutches to distract ourselves from our reality.

    And tried talking to Frank here :
