Don't mind if I do...

If you're having to return to work today after the Easter holiday, you might feel in need of a little pick-me-up. Maybe you should consider some Sanatogen Tonic Wine, as advertised in a 1970s magazine?

'You'll feel better after the first glass'. I should think you did, considering Sanatogen Tonic Wine was a hefty 26 percent proof! At the bottom of the label, it says that you should have 'One wineglassful three times a day'. By my rough calculation (going by drinkaware.co.uk), that would work out as 68 units of alcohol per week (the recommended limit is 21). Crikey! That's quite a tonic!

As the ad says 'It will help cheer you up and put you on top of the world....Ask for some today. You'll enjoy it doing you good.' Well, yes, possibly. Although you may also find yourself viewing the world through an alcoholic mist, rather like the couple in the background!
