Boris Johnson has claimed to give up alcohol until Brexit is sorted.
The prime minister, who was shown yesterday while sipping whiskey at a distillery on the campaign stump in Scotland, traverses the country before the December 12 crunch elections.
And the nationwide tour – launched amid a flurry of setbacks – seems to take a toll for the conservative leader, who seemed tired today when he made tea with nurses during a hospital visit.
The nurses at the King's Mill Hospital in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, told Mr. Johnson that many people smoke in Ashfield before shifting his attention to sheep, saying: I'm not sure. It might just encourage them to get into nicotine. & # 39;
He then asked & # 39; what about alcohol? & # 39; before adding: & # 39; I had to give up until we finished Brexit. & # 39;

His revelation came just a day after a tour of Roseisle Distillery in Morayshire, where he tasted a whiskey that he described as & # 39; delicious & # 39 ;.
Johnson told jokes to reporters that he & # 39; not & # 39; was allowed to enjoy too much of the ghosts before he took a little sip.
The new self-imposed alcohol ban marks a change in Mr. Johnson's campaign strategy, as he was often portrayed during the 2016 referendum enjoying pints in pubs with gamblers.
In June, a spilled glass of red wine led to a furious row with girlfriend Carrie Symonds, who became public and threatened to destroy his Tory leadership campaign.
A neighbor took in the 31-year-old Mrs. Symonds, who pushed Johnson out because he had destroyed the sofa of her apartment and had branded him pampered.
Since his relationship with Mrs. Symonds, many have commented that his leaner build amidst reports is that the PR guru has shaped him by reviewing his diet.
Johnson used his visit to the hospital to dispel opposition claims that a conservative Brexit would lead to the sale of the NHS.

After asking them if alcohol was a problem in Ashfield, the prime minister said: & # 39; I had to give up until we did Brexit & # 39;
Yesterday Mr. Johnson visited the Roseisle distillery where he tasted some whiskey and described it as & # 39; delicious & # 39;
He said: & # 39; We can conclude free trade agreements with countries around the world, but the NHS is not for sale among us. It will not be any form of international trade negotiations.
& # 39; This is purely Loch Ness Monster, Bermuda Triangle stuff.
& # 39; The NHS, free at the time of use, is a fantastic service and we not only believe in it, but invest more than ever in recent memory and we will continue to do so. & # 39;
The first few days of the campaign turned blue for Mr. Johnson, whose rally in Birmingham was overshadowed by a number of fluctuations.
Jacob Rees-Mogg had to apologize for the fact that the victims of the Grenfell tower & # 39; common sense & # 39; missed because they followed the fire brigade advice to stay in their apartments.
Alun Cairns, the cabinet's longest serving minister, stopped as Welsh secretary amid accusations that he knowingly and sustainably supported a candidate who had collapsed a rape trial.

And Tory Chairman James Cleverly took a hammer after shrugging that his party had made a video in which Mr. Keir Starmer of Labor allegedly struggled to answer an interviewer's question.
This resulted in a dip of two percent in the polls for the conservatives, but they are far ahead of Labor who did not manage to redeem Tory's setbacks.
The prime minister is now traveling through the UK for the winter vote in which he hopes to get a majority to ram his Brexit deal through parliament.
After parliamentarians thwarted their efforts to leave the block on October 31, the EU set a new January deadline.
But tiring that the current party of MPs could force persistent delays, he called an unexpected election to change the composition of Parliament – he hopes for his advantage.
Johnson has not made it clear whether he will stop drinking until the first phase of Brexit by the end of January or the end of the transition period in December next year.

The blue start of the campaign culminated in a two-percent dip in the polls for the conservatives, but they remain far ahead of Labor, who was unable to cash Tory's setbacks.
