JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER PROVES THE WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT HAS STILL NOT DIED

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY NED LAMB IN THE GUARDIAN

My self-worth and confidence were shot to pieces, and something had to change. Quitting drink gave me some control over my life

“Giving up alcohol for a year salvaged my mental health”

Perhaps, and if so, I am glad for you.

But I think there are many people whose mental health would deteriorate without the soothing application of limited amounts of drink.

It’s a tricky balance, perhaps, but then so are many, many things in life.

I have to say that The Guardian, with more than one article touching on this, emits faint echoes of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union in recent days.
