    Or any other libation for that matter if I work the night shift and get off at 730 AM? I work 9 pm to 730 am, but it still feels weird to have a drink when the sun is just coming up even if it is my evening per se.

    If those are your work hours, it’d be weird not to drink scotch in the morning :)

    I work overnights too and to answer your question, no it’s not wrong for us night shift folk. So drink up!

    If anyone judges you, they don’t know the nightshift struggles

    I worked night shift for about a year and all I could think of when I went home was a nice comfortable bed. The bit of sleep aid you're taking may help with the noise, errant light, visitors and anything else that will, without fail, disturb you so I highly recommend you take your medicine!!

    The expert whisky tasters I have met recommend doing tastings early in the AM 9:30 - 11:00. Seems your palate is better in the morning. So if anyone gives you grief about it just tell them your a professional!

    I wise old man once told me: "You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning".

    You're in good company doing that...Churchill usually started his mornings with a long soak in the tub with a scotch and a cigar alongside him!:cigar:

    I too work at a local hospital as a nursing assistant. And do the 12 hour 8p-8a. I love the 12 hours/3 nights a week sometimes 4 nights if I’m working my weekend.

    Although my hospital was purchased by a big healthcare company so they’ve had staff go to 8 hours. I’m one of a few left that didn’t jump ship yet while my co workers all panicked.



    Shhhhh. Nobody supposed to know about my secret life....LOL.

    I'm a third shifter and work 5 to 6 nights a week 50 to 70 hour work weeks and nothing beats a cigar or pipe after the kids are off to school and the house is empty than a pipe or cigar and a good drink.
    Bourbon or rum or even a good cheap wine. Neighbors know I work nights so they ignore me mostly. I might pee on their leg if they didnt. Or moon then. Hump their leg like a puppy. I'm 45. Its allowed. Some of the best conversations I ever had were during summertime when outside doing this. Im even funnier when drinking.
    Drink up!
