It's wedding season
My mid twenties have coincided with a large number of my friends beginning to settle down and get married, and where there are weddings there are stag do's. Depending on the friend, and the friendship group, this can range from stag do's in English cities, European cities and further afield, however this post will concentrate on just trips to Europe.
The one thing that England and Panjab have in common is a big drinking culture but this post will not glorify drinking in any manner. I have seen the damage alcohol can do, especially in English and Panjabi families. The UK suffers from approximately 10,000 alcohol related deaths per year while Panjab has one of the highest per capita alcohol consumption rates in the world.
There are certain things that straddle the line of good and bad, for me, alcohol is one of the most dangerous and addictive substances on the planet. That being said I spent 3 years working in a club during my university years and me giving a long winded lecture is a little hypocritical. I am a firm believer that you can have fun without drinking alcohol and this extends to stag do's too.
