Perhaps the greatest social lubricant known to all of mankindâŠ
Itâs been described as âmotherâs ruin, medicine, anaesthetic, Dutch Courage, daily rations, lunch, dinner and even breakfast â with a steak and egg in every canâ Itâs enabled many an ugly/smelly/nerdy/drunk to get laid, whereas without they just might not of got anywhere near as lucky.

Watching and observing ordinary adult Kiwiâs on a sober side-line at a party on a Friday night – who went from friendly and social, to being overtly flirty chatting to outright canoodling & smooching â where both canoodlers are in long-term relationships with others (who were not present at this party) â It got me to thinking, is alcohol to blame for âlowered inhibitionsâ, or is it something else us adult humans experience?
Weâve been conditioned to believe itâs our own inhibitions that are diluted/minimised/dissolved/evaporated as a result of alcohol consumption, but what if thatâs a false social construct â perpetuated by decades of social-engineering even – where that, once tiddly/2 beer buzz/half drunkâŠ we simply donât care about social conditioned frameworks of behaviours we are âsupposedâ to âbehaveâ by?

Is that one and the same though? Â Read more »
