Inane. Beyond inane. And very inconsistent policy from the hapless army. Why now, as the cases are starting to flatten out? The people are home, most are bored, what is the harm in granting the people a beer?

Its a good idea to ban alcohol sales in Thailand and I personally welcome it. 🤞

 

I say this because I have returned to Germany with my Thai family where the beer flows like water, costs about 10 THB per pint and is delivered to your door by the crate. 🍻

 

Here we will drink our way through the Coronavirus Crisis then sober up once it is over. 👯‍♀️

 

After that we will return to Thailand where (because of the ban) there will be massive stockpiles of cheap beer available to celebrate our return.🍾

Exactly, my mom shop confirmed me today, i dont need to worry for my daily 4-6 big Chang are safed for the next days maybe next weeks. But only take away and drink at home. So nothing happened here in Bangkok. Dont worry, be happy and enjoy ur social distancing at home.

 

 

I am happy.

 

A good friend owns a Mom and Pop alcohol shop (no problems for refills), my wife runs a noodle stall and is about 30 metres away during the day, and at night we sit outside and drink at home or the next door neighbours, our 15 year old son is in his room most of the day, plus we live in rural Khampaeng Phet which is Covid-19 free at the moment.

I've become bored of beer recently, so I'll just use this as an opportunity to give it up for a while, we're all getting fatter now anyway... 

"we're all getting fatter now anyway..."  Speak for yourself, I have lost 2 Ks since the lockdown.

Internet is full of excercise videos you can do at home.

It is not forbidden to ride your bike, not much better exercise than that.

When will this garbled mess of different provincial rules finally stop? I thought Thailand has a central government.

Whom or what does this nonsense any good except causing confusion...

Yes, every authority makes up their own rules. This is Thailand. The members of the "scared of your own shadow" brigade must be having a hard time of it these days. 😀

Said on here previously that there will be food riots eventually with this lockdown and the money starts running out, I think my prediction will be wrong. there will be alcohol riots and then food riots - or maybe steal the food as an afterthought

Highly intelligent,  now everyone will rush to stock up . How rational!!!!

Or just go to the little shop in one of the nearby soi.

Hope they have stocked up.

Do you know that under the State of Emergency period it's illegal to hoard...

10 days is not so bad ... spare a thought for the pot smokers .... most of us have been on a lifetime ban #thoughtsAndPrayers
