Alcohol is not your friend. ‘Friendly’, certainly. Rather like ‘the Friendly Stranger’.

I quit The stuff in 1988. For me it was unrequited love. I tell people who innocently offer it to me that “I loved it but it didn’t loved me”. It takes the edge off an awkward denial of gift situation. For me it’s an old love better left stranded at the bar waiting for me to show.
