My alcohol consumption in 2 years here has been the same as 20 years in England.
Be careful with this as your alcohol consumption has increased tenfold since the time you arrived in Poland !
most people I meet speak some English and want to speak in English
That must be really annoying. If I went to live in England and everyone preferred to speak in Polish to me, I would feel frustrated, too. Try to talk to people who don't speak English at all (typically 50+). Or, alternatively, try to introduce yourself as someone who speaks very little English.
