is Cambodia full of bored alcoholics?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

ummm, yeah, pretty much so. there are of course exceptions to the rule.

Moreso in SHV from what I can see.

I am seldom bored, I get up and pretend to do work from around 7.30am until 12.50pm and am not an alcoholic as I generally do not start drinking beer until about 1pm when I play poker. I usually stop drinking beer (due to the volume) and switch to spirits around 11pm. However quite a few of the people in the building in which I live and others I meet daily do indeed fit your description.

I ran it through several languages on Google Translate, and eventually came up with this

"Compote drink around the coast have recently received a lot"

I hope that has cleared things up. :hattip:

He calls himself an Aussie! Fu king disgrace to the nation.

Everyone knows it is a slab a day minimum to call yourself an Aussie ... oi oi oi.


Btw a slab is a 24 can case of beers.

if you class Serendipity Beach/Golden Sorya Mall/Street 136 as "Cambodia" then yeah sure, although most of those boozers are likely to be Tourists who would drink all day seeing as theyre on 'Holiday'

without being too positive though, there are a lot of 'expats' who drink a lot regularly/alcoholics,
i myself have suffered numerous spells of alcoholism, although its not often you will see me drinking in the day time, its one of my rules,
i love day drinking but it doesnt matter when i start ill still be up until the early hours (3-7am) drinking heavily, which would end up killing me if i got into the habit of day drinking, as i dont drink beer
(FU british binge drinking culture!)

The problem with not being able to own land and being too old to get married and get your name on a deed means a lot of people who would be pottering in the garden and shed back home don't have that option.
