How is Everyone

Hey All

Just wondered how everyone is doing during this terrible time.

I know pubs, bars etc are closed, so no outlet there. I will admit I am drinking more, a couple of ciders or wine at night. I am not drinking alone, but with family, but it is becoming a habit which needs breaking.

Some supermarkets have sold six months alcohol during these last few weeks, so just wondered how folk were doing.

    Hi Vicky & Bikerjools,

    Yes times are very trying at the moment.

    My brother has had it and my sister in law is currently in ICU on a ventilator so we are hoping everyday for

    good news. She's been in a week now and is making slow progress but she was a fit and healthy 50 year old before the virus got to her.

    So I think, to be honest, in these exceptional circumstances it's understandable that alcohol consumption is not 100% the main worry of everyone's day to day lives.

    I've noticed the alcohol aisles being plundered over the last few weeks too!!

    Anyway I think that as long as you drink in moderation and don't go over to top then when this frightening situation is more under control you can think of addressing the problem again then.

    Wishing everyone all the best, keep indoors and keep safe!!

    Claire xx
