I’m not an alcoholic; just an avid collector of empty bottles (judging by the re-cycling basket out out this morning! )

I prefer to just call myself a collector of empty bottles. It just sounds so much better than alcoholic.

I like to think of myself more as a “Collector of Empty Bottles” than plain old “Alcoholic”. It just sounds better.

There’s four of us with two recycling wheelie bins and they’re normally full within a day of being emptied.
