Readers’ comments: Drink, drugs and a sobering thought


In response to John Musgrave: This, Gazza, is how to beat the bottle

A fine article, well said. With the taxes on booze skyrocketing and street drugs getting cheaper, gout is the least of society’s problems.

Good article. I do feel sorry for Paul Gascoigne, though. He was a wonderfully talented player, but also a simple soul who just wasn’t equipped for wealth and celebrity. I remember him saying in an interview, ‘When you are a kid you think it would be great to be famous, but when you are, it’s horrible.’ I hope he finds some kind of peace.

John, evidently for your condition you made the correct decision and good luck to you. Alcohol can be a scourge and no doubt of it, but if you can imbibe in moderation, with food and always – I stress always – in good company and if your body tolerates a gentle sip, a goodly quaff of ale, in control, what harm in that?
