Interesting Article in the Guardian About Teetotalism

I read this great article in the Guardian today about teetotalism. For the record, I don’t drink, but I don’t think it’s for someone to tell others what to do. I think it’s a personal choice, and I agree with the tone of this article.

We’re living in a liberal, progressive, multi-cultural society, so people who choose not to drink should not be treated as “social pariahs,” in this day and age. It’s too much of a big deal in Britain, when it really shouldn’t be. We should learn to stop being so judgmental.

I also did not know that there were so many teetotallers in the public eye; Nicholas Sarkozy, Tony Benn, Tobey Maguire, as well as many others.
