Understood, BUT if the rules say no, whether you drink on/ off the site
is a moot point - your body is still affected (note I didn't say mind :) )
My disagreement has only been with the "on duty" -ness of it all.
So if one really NEEDS to break the rules, and ignore common sense .....
My point is that, they don't need to do this. Warm milk maybe, certainly
star gazing and a good (but small) fire do wonders at night.
