However, there were in the life of Vladimir Vysotsky periods when he did not take in his mouth intoxicating beverages.

“hussars cold”

Addicted to alcohol Vladimir Vysotsky was different long before it became famous throughout the Soviet Union. As you know, the School-Studio of MKHAT Vysotsky ended in the summer of 1960. One of the first films newly minted graduate was the film Grigory Nikulin “713-th requested landing”. The film was shot in Leningrad, so Wysocki, who was born and lived in Moscow and had to settle for a hotel comfort. Wife, Isolde Zhukova, was not there, therefore the atmosphere was favorable to a plentiful libations and other activities. But after a few days all of a sudden Vladimir Semenovich, who was then still young and healthy, became a teetotaler.
