Best Whisky related advice, I've been given...

If you want to talk piffle, and discover the meaning of life, you're better off downing a bottle of *whiskey - At least that way you're unconscious before you start to take yourself seriously.

What's the best advice you have been given?

(*Have included both versions)

never put ice in it or anything other than a splash of water and warm it in your hands to release the aroma

other than that drink and enjoy

Advice from a doctor to my dad, if you’ve got a cold and drink enough whisky to stop you seeing the end of your bed, the cold will last a fortnight, if you don’t drink whisky it will last two weeks.😆

Whisky advice from my Dad - NEVER put water in it. Water is only good for washing your feet in!

The best whisky ( or whiskey) advice I have had was.....
‘Take more water with it’ 😊

Advice from a doctor to DH - if you've got a cold coming or suspect it might be flu, go to bed with a whisky and a good woman - it won't cure you, but it'll make you feel better!

Whisky is Scotch.

Whiskey is some funny drink made in Ireland.

Never buy things online when you're drunk. Especially holidays wink

So many replies say the same thing, which my Dad told me -
"When in doubt, say nowt".
And his Mum, my Grandma "Hold your tongue!".

Hold your breath or bite your tongue. Least said----

No response is a response and a powerful one.

If you can’t be kind, be quiet.

Don’t take criticism from people you would never go to for advice

He who establishes his argument by noise and command shows that his reason is weak.

Accept what you cannot change.

Before you react think about what you want the overall outcome to be.
