I am investigating getting life insurance. Honestly, being an adult, it’s one tedious thing after another. I met an adviser and there was a very detailed questionnaire which he talked me through. One of the questions was “How many units of alcohol do you usually drink per week?” I don’t really drink at all, so I said, “None.” “We’d better put one,” he said, “otherwise they’ll think you’re an alcoholic who has been forced to give it up and that might cause a problem.”
There’s been much talk recently about this country’s unhappy relationship with alcohol and here’s more evidence of it, if this were needed.
