However, he also points out that a lot of people who drink a lot are put off by the thought of total abstinence – and therefore don’t bother looking at their drinking levels at all, because moderate drinking isn’t often deemed an option. It may be easier to give up alcohol totally than commit yourself to a future life of drinking moderately. More shocking than that, though, was the figure I got to when I considered how many of those drinks I could have done without.

Chiles is honest enough to say this won't be for everyone, my experience is that it's easier to abstain than moderate. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Adrian Chiles presents a different proposition to heavy drinkers wanting to do something about it; instead of abstaining, how about drinking in moderation? I can freely admit that both of us drink far more than the recommended limits – and definitely when on holiday would be up at a level similar to Adrian’s historic levels. He starts by discussing the basics of his approach, emotions and how to handle them, and our self-beliefs.Reading Chiles' book mad me realise that my drinking story was remarkably similar to his own, and I guess many readers will feel the same.

There’s no silver bullet in the book - just a series of sensible measures we can all take to start the process of becoming a Good Drinker.The combination of facts and anecdotes means it’s an interesting and amusing read and I plan to follow Adrian’s example and be more mindful about what I consume alcohol-wise going forwards. Ever since he was a teenager, drinking was his idea of a good time - and not just his, but seemingly the whole nation's.
