THE nation’s drinkers have confirmed that drinking alone is only a lonely business for the first bottle, after which it is f**king fantastic.
Solo boozers have admitted their first solitary can, glass of wine or vodka-and-coke can feel a bit sad and desperate but advise drinking through it to make those worries simply evaporate.
Hannah Tomlinson, 29, said: “Miraculously this is a problem caused by drink that drink can easily solve.
“The social stigma, the health concerns, all those melt away once you’ve cleared that first bottle of wine. It goes from being an activity you’re unsure about to one you’re all in on.
“Trust me, you’ll need to lay in a few bottles because once you start you won’t want to stop. And you’ll come up with all kinds of other great ideas, like calling your ex, tearing down wallpaper or applying for Love Island.
“It’s even better than going out drinking because you wake up alone too, rather than in some dude’s flat opposite a framed Muse poster wondering what the f**k happened. There really is nothing better.”
She added: “There is the whole alcoholism thing. That’s kind of a problem. But, you know, I don’t want to harsh anyone’s buzz.”
