    As a boy, I'd go mad for a port 'n' lemon. My mum used to enjoy one, and I'd be allowed one. Of course, it was one part port, and nine parts lemonade. But I loved it.

    I wasn't really aware it was a drink for grown-ups, and one school holiday, I had about five lads in while my mum was out. We were nine years old, I'd say. Wanting to impress, I poured them all a port 'n' lemon. My mum went white, then red, when she came in to find us all swigging these drinks!!!

    Usually, if I'd been naughty, she'd march me and my friends round their respective mothers to grass us all up. But this time, she just bustled us out of the house rather quietly. Hehe.

    I had no idea of alcohol. To me, the drink was just a treat. But back then, I went mad for Rum Babas, the froth off my dad's beer, and (hehe) cider lollies. Plus, you could walk into the Co-Op, aged 9, and come out with a can of limeade 'n' lager. I also used to pretend I had stomach ache to get a cup of whisky and hot water with sugar in. And my parents were older and pretty conservative!!!! I guess that's the 70s for you.

    Funnily enough, after all that, once I could start drinking, I never did. I'm 37 and haven't had a drink since I was 15!!!!

    If eight out of ten cats prefer whiskas, do the other two shave or wax?

    Old English Cider at about 15 I think.

    I was terribly ill and to this day I can't drink cider at all . Just the smell makes me feel ill.

    But do it all the time and they will lock you away.
