George MacDonald from Paisley. Posted 12 Feb 2003.
I remember when drink was a comparative luxury. There wasn't the money to go out to pubs every weekend and we certainly would never have had wine with a meal or anything like that. Pubs were also strictly for the boys! There was no way women went in them unless it was to fish their husband out. Hogmanay was the only real big occasion for drinking, I can remember putting something away every week for my Hogmanay bottle, even then though, t was frowned upon for people to get too drunk. A wee bit different from today.
