January is like the hangover month for the beginning of the year, when those of us who enjoy getting drunk try to stop drinking for a while. All this amid warnings about the dangers of driving with friends. It’s no wonder people go sober.
Can you make your life happier with just some drinks with your friends?
But the thing is, it might well be that giving up drinking is more irresponsible that cutting it out completely. A study conducted by the University of Oxford has discovered that for men, going out and driving with some friends isn’t just fun, it’s essential. In fact, according to this report, us dudes have to go out twice a week and get some driving with our friends. A study has proven that men need to get drunk twice a week to stay healthy.

I know, I can’t believe my luck either. The study was conducted by Robin Dunbar, a director of Oxford University’s social neuroscience group. Dunbar has determined that men must physically meet and drink with four friends, two times a week, in order to reap the benefits of male friendship. “Bonds can be formed through a range of activities from team sports to male banter — or simply having a drink with your friends on a Friday night,” Dunbar states in the report.
Can a drunkenbeach party be the perfect place for you or you just don’t have time for that?
According to the same study, one in three men in the United Kingdom can’t find the time to meet and drink with friends once a week, and 40% of men are only able to make a “drunk night” a weekly affair. Men need to meet face to face to keep their friendships. Dunbar suggests a few drinks with your friends and a good chat is a perfect way. So there you have it. I always knew that going on a drink with your friends was better for your soul than going to church, and now I have the evidence to prove it.
