Dear Niven,

My comment was intended as a light hearted joke only. Thankyou for sharing
your story with us. The drink has ruined many families and Scots are not
alone with this problem. Aussies tend to prefer the beer and Rum. My
childhood was affected by a father who drank too much. Now I sadly see my
brothers follow his habit. It seems a man is judged more a man by how much
he can consume and still be able to talk bullshit at the same time. My
sisters ex husband would fill his gut with alcohol while his small children
went hungry. If only they knew just how disgusting they look from a womans
eyes.We want to hear sweet nothings in our ears, not slurring, spitting
dribble. Mind you, I do enjoy a couple small whiskeys a week. A fine drop in
moderation.

Have a great day

Annie
