Beer blogger, the Pub Curmudgeon, has come across this piece of research from Norway that shows that non-drinkers are more likely to face mental health problems and lack social skills. This is a refreshing dose of common sense in view of much of the dodgy anti-alcohol "research" and propaganda that is being used to justify unreasonable tax increases whereby the Government by its own admission wants to price alcohol beyond the means of all but the wealthy.
Such price rationing is a poll tax on drinkers; now we can see that it is also an enforced negative therapy that will reduce our happiness and well-being ~ and we won't be able to afford to cheer ourselves up by drowning our sorrows.
All pull together
