‘A drinking Culture’ related articles

We live in times where many countries can be recognised by a specific drinking culture. My ex-partner was a functioning alcoholic and having spent 12 years of my life with him I have learned a lot about the subject. I have even written a book about it for which I interviewed many people. You can read more about “Cheers, the hidden voices of alcoholism” via a link on the home page.

I have become rather passionate about the subject and consider myself an experience expert. As a writer I always carry a notebook (I love beautiful notebooks) with me to write down bits of texts that I can later use in a story or article. 

This page contains a large number of Cheers-related articles by me and by Mandy Shanks. These posts and articles discuss various themes with regard to alcoholism and society. I invite you to scroll down this page to read that which might interest you. You can click on the bold titles to go to the article.
