I'm not hungover and I'm not getting preachy. I've just fucking had it with the stuff.
if you can resist the drink over chrimbo/new year, you're a better man than i - good luck!
do you mean quitting altogether? i have a friend who used to be an ultimate waster then quit entirely but then slowly started to drink a bit which i think was a good idea. i drink a little but nowhere near what the average person my age seems to. i just dont get it...
But then I went to festivals and it all kicked off.
My trouble is that if I have a little, I want more. Self control failure.
Bring on 2009!
from NYE to Leeds festival this year.
Well worth it. Health benfits are surprisingly tangible.
Am now looking forward to looking younger and feeling sexier next year.
I won't be able to pick up any glasses or bottles.
I had something life threatening! I don't really drink in the week I'm more a weekend binge drinker. My liver was built for a bashing.
went for my works xmas night out on Thursday and still feel fucking awful today. I get really itchy and paranoid now too, cant see myself quiting altogether though.
Not by choice though. Doctor's orders. Have really fucked myself up in the last few months.
It's not easy going to gigs and being social at first, but it gets easier. The hardest thing is when you're around other people who are caned. Everyone is a cunt!
It's only day two and the smell of mulled wine is driving me mad.
i find it vaguely intimidating.
Me and my lady live in town, and there's been a coupla times when my lady has been out on the piss with friends, and i've had a quiet one in. Being the gent i'll pop out at 2/3/4 o'clock in the morning to meet her rather than her walk home on her own. I have spent endless nights wandering round at stupid o'clock on my own, bollocksed and had no fear, even approached strangers and talked shite with them. But it's a totally different kettle of fish when you are sober.
Not only can people be cunts, they can be bordeline violent/psychotic cunts too
I spent a few weeks working nights in Kingston, where I went to school and went out every weekend for years and years. It was really quite scary when I went out to get my "lunch" from the chippy at 2 in the morning..
it feels so good.
this can't be good for me, but I don't like food as much. Not that I drink that much these days, although stopping altogether is not even a consideration of mine.
What a cnut. I was worried about the weight thing so I went to whisky and diet mixers. No hangover, but drinking hard liqour daily doesn't seem so clever.
I hope you punched this person in the face.
it's such a worry not being in control. I get the worst hangover guilt the next day too. I'm just worried about my social life :(
