    Not really - might have the occasional one, like once a week with someone, but not a smoker.

    I am mates with at least one person, who drinks like a fish and smokes like a chimney. I got him a place on the access course at my local uni, and i think he thought you could do the same work for university that you do for school, ergo nothing. Anyway he has dropped out now!

    Red wine does far more harm than good
    And I really doubt that drinker stat's accuracy.
    I'm sure red wine does more harm than good.

    However the thing about increased longevity is true. I remember reading it a while ago from a creditable source (can't remember where from though) and being equally amazed. I presume the cliche of everything in moderation must be true in this case.

    may well be the case, as stress can often cause/provoke illness. and some drinks have anticancer / anti cardiovascular disease properties etc.

    I don't drink wine, can't stand the stuff. But I like lager, and the odd top shelf for special occasions?
