How To Get Rid Of Bad Memories

"Men in their 40s who drink just two pints of beer a day risk accelerating mental decline by up to six years by the time they reach retirement age…. Moderate drinking, defined as less than 2.5 units a day – roughly a pint of beer or a large glass of wine – was found to have no effect on memory, reasoning or problem solving. But men who drank more than 4.5 units a day – less than two pints or two large glasses of wine – suffered a deterioration in their ability to recall information, the equivalent to an extra six years of ageing."

The inability to remember my past when I reach "retirement age" (which in my case is likely to be 93) sounds like a real blessing.

Mitchell and Webb made the only compelling argument for moderate drinking I've seen to date: Slightly less than two drinks
