Don't get me wrong, I like a few cans of the old falling down stuff. But, drinking in the daylight, is just a horrible practice. You go back home to your hobble, and it's still daylight. Just cannot get my head around drinking in the day. Opines?

But, unless you go to bed to sober up, the hangover is real. You cannot sleep it of, like dreaming of hopped up Lada's racing F1 cars and stuff.

I like a large glass of red wine with my evening meal, around 5pm, so its always light in the Summer months. Makes no difference to me.

I cannot agree with you more Rampent-my thoughts exactly. What a waste. I always think that when I drive past a pub in the middle of the day. What use is anyone after a drink. I like a drink when the mood takes me in the evening, but I`m useless afterwards, but I`m only going to bed so no problem.

I love afternoon drinking...but it's a dangerous pastime. I end up losing track of time and drinking waay too much. A vice to be saved for bank holidays and occasional times.

Good choice, I normally start quaffing at around 7 30PM, but I don't really go mental until around 11, if I feel a little sober at this time, I start to panic, and drink more.

If I drink in the day I usually float around the 20 pint mark, then if i have an evening session planned, I'll go out for a quick 5 mile run, quick shower and back out feeling fresh.

i love daytime drinking!! but only from midday sort of time!! get the girls round on a sunny day- lay in the garden with the tunes on having a laugh and goss, wander to the pub as evening draws in, get back (a little drunk) and cook something tasty for tea so the hangover aint as bad!!!

I think he was being diplomatic by removing 'Earth and fire'. 'Earth' being a follow through or 'fire' when his cheeks are planted securely on the missuses butt.:suspect:

A malt or two at night or a can through the day maybe. If i'm near any work it's a no no.

Don't forget that in some parts of Europe (France and Italy for example), having a glass of wine at breakfast is considered 'de rigeur' ... even the kids are given watered down wine. It's just us British who can't handle it.

Germany too, beer is considered "food" and not "alcohol" so it's legal to drink on public transport, and you often see people at 7am onwards drinking beer before work.

I don't know which part of France you have been to, where they drink wine at breakfast and/or where this practice would be considered "de rigueur", but I can assure you that, to most French people, there is nothing remotely normal (or acceptable) about drinking wine at breakfast.

Coffee (with/without milk) is the standard (vastly more so than tea).

After that, however, and getting back to the gist of your post, I'll tell you what the difference between French/Italians and Brits is: to most French people, "drinking during the day" means having a glass of wine or two with lunch, maybe a demi or two in the late afternoon after work, and that's it. That's for those who still do it, in these 'modern' everything-you-do-or-think-is-bad-for-your-health days.

It's completely opposed to the meaning (unsurprisingly-) conveyed by so many replies in this thread, where posters appear to equate "drinking" with "getting s**tfaced" :rolleyes:

I'd have to agree Loob. Now summer is here or getting here there is nothing better than an aperitif before dinner. Pastis with ice outside on the veranda just before dinner - fantastic.

I've just spent the weekend at a freinds place, both French ex-pats and there would be an aperitif before lunch and dinner, with a digestif afterwards, and probably wine with dinner. That's everyday seven days a week for them. As you say - driunking isn't simply about getting wasted which is what most people here do seem to think.

And as for children - their four year old is already deciding which sort of red wine he prefers. To their chagrin, he's turning into a Rioja man.

For once I agree with you! There's nothing wrong with having an aperatif before lunch ... you've only got to go to a good restaurant in this country to see that it works. A nice bottle during the meal only goes to enhance the dining experience. Good food and wine go together!
It's a sad indictment to see many people on here think that drinking = getting wasted.

Well they'd prefer he had French wine naturally. However it's unbeleivable the aggravation they get for letting him drink watered wine at that age - they even had someone threaten to call the police until the publican told them it was legal and to shut up or they would be ejected.
