DRINKING alone does not deserve its bad reputation, according to solo drinkers already on their second bottle of wine.
Widely viewed as a dangerous step on the road to alcoholism, lone drinkers have countered that argument by calling it ‘stupid bullshit’ and stressed that, based on their personal research, drinking alone is ‘fucking great’.
Nathan Muir, from Solihull, said: “You pick your own music, your own telly, your own drinking pace and nobody’s there to tell you to stop.
“There’s no need to watch the level of the bottle to make sure you’re getting your fair share, because there’s only you drinking.
“And yeah, there’s nobody to talk to, but you know how other people’s conversation gets worse the drunker they get? Yours only gets better.
“I might cry in a minute. It’s fine, it’s just because I’m so happy.”
Lone drinker Susan Traherne, downing a tequila shot, said: “If you want friends, they’re right there on social media.
“Come to think if it, I might tell some of these bastards what I think of them.”
