Now sober for almost five years, Irish Times journalist Brian O'Connell sees himself out of synch with much of Irish society and finds Ireland an uncomfortable place in which to live.
He explores both his and Ireland's fondness for the jar, by hanging out with daytime drinkers in a rural bar, getting the thoughts of boozy teenagers and hearing from those at the frontline of Ireland’s drink culture.
