We'll be healthier than before, once alcohol ban is lifted. 

 

Not a bad time to stop drinking altogether and spend the time and money to something else?

 

Some say that it takes 3 weeks to change habits, good or bad. Now we have ample of time to do just that.

Does giving pep talk to adults on how to run their lives give a bit of a feel good.

Some say live your own life.

Spend time doing what? We are pretty limited in what we can do right now. Staying at home and being a good member of society is much easier to do when you can enjoy a drink at the end of the day or week.

My hatred and disdain of them has just grown immeasurably. All Hail China, oops I mean Thailand!

Communal swimming pools? Probably missed my daily swim more than anything.

Speak for yourself. People have (or did have) a free choice to take a drink if they want.

Good, they should keep the booze ban.

Great to see golf will reopen can't wait to hit the links.

Selfish. What's worst is that it would actually give you enjoyment at cost of others being upset.

Learn new skills, learn to cook better, read books, play chess or cards (online if no other people around), learn to improve your Thai both talk and read.. pretty much anything which keeps the brain fed.

Agree.  I can put up with the stay-at-home order, curfew, mask, social distancing, no mass gatherings, etc.  But at least let me have a beer in the comfort of my own home!!

Yeah I don't understand that at all. What does it have to do with coronavirus ?

Because when Thais are drunk they do stupid things and the COVID-19 cases go through the roof.

I think golf courses should remain closed. I don't play golf nor do I even care. I just feel they should be closed based on the fact it doesn't affect me at all.

I don't think your brain (if you have one) has ever been fed !

I believe it's a fact, that there is no alcohol sales until further notice. We can't change that by talking here.

 

But what each of us can do, is to direct our eagerness to drink beer to something else. We have to do that, no matter what. 

 

It would be nice to hear what kind of hobbies people have started or continued because of the current and continuing situation. Solutions.
