You don't have to be a wowser to see sense in restraint

Fathers tell you home truths. One came my way when I was 10.

''You'll never become an alco' if you just drink beer,'' dad told me. ''You'll vomit before you can get too drunk.''

Mothers tell you home truths too: ''Never drink by yourself, never drink at home and nothing good happens after 1am.''
