Prices are soaring but don’t worry, booze is still cheap!
You can bust the government recommended weekly maximum alcohol intake for less than the price of a coffee.
Full disclosure: according to the Mirror, which I don’t usually read, if you go to Morrisons, where I don’t usually shop, you can buy a bottle of cider for £2.10. It contains ten units of alcohol, which means for £2.94 you can drink the NHS maximum recommended number of units. That said, the coffee shop that I half-jokingly refer to as my office sells me an Americano for £2.80. But even at my worst I would have been able to find the extra 14p.
Energy is expensive, petrol is pricey, mortgages going mad but at least we can still afford to get wasted.
I don’t believe that the price of booze plays a huge part of what motivates people to stop drinking but 21p a unit is a joke.
If you can finance a 100 unit a week drinking problem for less than I spend on coffee then something is wrong with the world.
Seriously, I don’t drink that much coffee.
