I don't drink but my family is full on boozo's. The limit is fine it's the people that need to follow it. And the police need to police it more if it's so 'dangerous' at this level.
I would feel completely safe getting in car with my dad (who is a functioning alcoholic) but if I got in the car with someone else who was over limit after dinner I would feel anxious. I hope that makes sense and doesn't sound silly? Like because he has built up so much tolerance to the alcohol. So 0.05 wouldn't be his limit anymore... Anyway! I sound confusing haahha!!
my sister gave birth and her dh went and helped himself to a beer (there was a communal refreshments fridge apparently) and she asked him to grab her a wine! I was like you're not serious are you. turns out she didn't have the wine but I was a bit shocked she was even thinking about a drink.
this was a private hospital in wa. I'm in Vic and going public so doubt there'll be any little fancy extras waiting for me in my room 😆
I have never once inferred that anyone who drinks is a second class citizen. I simply made the point that drinking in this country is a huge part of our culture, we're not a dry nation. It was certainly not intended as a slur on anyone. Jesus, I have a few wines almost every Friday and Saturday night, I'd be incredibly hypocritical to make that inference!
Furthermore, I actually noted that it's people like *me* who are the problem. So if I'm being snarky at anyone, it's at myself.
