Delusion part of drink problem

Madam – Declan Lynch's piece 'We're a nation consumed by martyrdom that never ends' (Sunday Independent, December 16, 2012) exposes our dysfunctional attitude to alcohol and reinforces my conviction that we Irish possess a disordered psyche which facilitates self-delusion. The conventional wisdom is that we don't have a problem. We drink. Fall down. No problem.
