At what age are alcopops no longer age appropriate?

At what age is an alcopop no longer appropriate? These are the hard hitting questions I ask myself (I get it I must have a lot on my plate!)

I feel like at some point in your life, without being told, subconsciously, you realise that your not going to be taken seriously holding a bottle of what can only be described as looking like smurf p**s!

Is it the sugar? Let’s face it our bodies aren’t breaking that stuff down like it used to (although I don’t seem to mind when I’m knee deep into a lemon drizzle!)

Is it a different hangover. We start to categorise hangovers at a certain point which makes drinking choices harder e.g I’m relitavely functional on a gin hangover where as a wine hangover turns me into the anti christ for 3 days following?

Either way I don’t seem to see anyone over the age of 19 holding an alcopop anymore. When did we become ‘too old’ and more to the point WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?!!!

I think the below is a perfect representation of where I’m going with this….

I'm 29 and literally clueless about mostly everything! I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up! The thought of having children scares the life out of me, I can barely dress myself! Life basically seems like one big joke (because that's what I make it to disguise the fact that adulting petrifies me and is sooooo bleak!) except I have direct debits coming out of my eyeballs and nothing I say really seems to make any sort of sense! I crave excitement outside of seeing whats in my monthly Birchbox subscription. The ageing process is not being kind to me (the day I discovered a chin hair was a MAJOR low point!) My waist is rapidly expanding. My desire to be thin is ever increasing. My motivation to do anything about it is ever depleting. I have an inner need to buy budget gadgets that break or are completely useless and that desire never seems to fade, I literally have a house full of useless s**t!!! What is life?! I think its time for a Gin...................
