“I’m not really a social drinker. I’d say most of my drinking is work-related”

"I’m not really a social drinker. I’d say most of my drinking is work-related” is a jocular drinking line that has been printed on many images. American journalist Linda Ellerbee described work pressures with a “joke” in her book, “And So It Goes”: Adventures in Television (1986):

“Are you a social drinker, sir? No, all my drinking is work-related.”

“I’m not a social drinker.  Its mostly work related” was posted on Twitter on April 19, 2009. “im not really a social drinker. I´d say most of my drinking is work related” was posted on Twitter on January 17, 2010/

Linda Ellerbee, newscaster, author and single mother, held back a grin Sunday as she read aloud the synopsis of a seminar on “The Art of Juggling Work and Home,” offered at a women’s conference the preceding weekend at the Irvine Hilton:
(...)
Women should not try to imitate men by keeping work entirely separate from other parts of their lives, Ellerbee said. “We know what a sick child is to a woman, or a lost love. We know you can’t separate this and that. . . . We also know the cost of not doing that . . . drugs, heart attacks, ulcers, drinking. ‘Are you a social drinker?’ ‘ Nooo, all my drinking is work-related.’ “
