Modern society is so dumb. Cigarette free smoking, alcohol free beer, what's the point in living if everything you do is so safe and smart?

Went for dinner the other night and my mates were ordering pint after pint, this is the first time i've ever not drunk and I found it pretty hard watching them. I just fancied a beer. So in the pub after I had a 0% Heineken, doesnt taste like Heineken. Was horrible, like frothy watery shandy.

it doesn't taste like the genuine thing, so yes it's fucking pointless on many levels.

my interpretation is the opposite, solely drinking beer for the purpose of consuming alcohol is hugely nan. it implies you can't appreciate the taste and refreshment, and only find it tolerable to drink due to the alcohol content

They don’t call Non Alcoholic beer sister beer for no reason. It’s horrible. I think most people drink the initial few pints for refreshment and taste, but once you’re a few deep you barely taste anymore and I usually end up on the nips (no racist) anyway as beer just bloats.

I regularly do period where I give up booze throughout the year and it always baffles me why it bothers people more then it bothers me. I can quite happily do a night out and not have to drink to have fun, proper sad when people can’t remove going out and enjoying themselves and having to drink alcohol. All slaves to the hangover.

Think you're missing the point Sneaky - giving up alcohol for a period isn't nan, drinking alcohol free beer is nan

Nah, I like drinking ales and lagers for the refreshing taste, not necessarily to feel it's effects. By day 11 into dry January and it being a Friday, I have a thirst quench for a beer, and that beer is an Erdinger Alkohol-Frei.

I've given up alcohol for January. Being a Crystal Palace fan who loves the pub before and after games this is nigh on impossible Laughing out loud . Got some Erdinger alcohol free beer in the fridge to get me through this second weekend. It's psychological for me. Something to drink that tastes as close to beer as possible and to be honest it's the best of a bad bunch.

Agree that drinking alcohol free beer instead of beer is nan. I feel like I have no alternative for this period when the cravings come in waves and I'm looking for the next best thing.

Drinking beers or non-alcohol beers is not nan in either case. Nan is not drinking because it ‘gives you a funny tummy’ or because you prefer milkshakes or something

yeah for me even finding an acceptable tasting actual lager is hard enough. I drink for the taste and the feeling. Athletes drink a lot because alcohol is a relaxant, it relaxes everything. NA beer can't do that.

Just have a fucking Coke.
