I couldn't manage a week, so well done. I tend not to drink during the week, but no steak/lamb with red wine on a Friday. Unthinkable...I've just managed 3weeks (not by choice) and that was hard enough. Fair play if you go ahead with it but it aint happening for me
Checking into the teetotal thread off a the back of a stag weekend at the races in Liverpool - hi!functioning alcoholics v bingers
worth adding that the nightmare tourists/stags/football fans that go abroad in numbers aren't generally-speaking alcoholics - they're just numbskulls who can't hold their drink
That sounds like a nice spontaneous good drink. Often resulting in having a good time from my experience.So, a typical example of me yesterday.
We are at the family caravan in Abersoch in North Wales, first proper night last night.
Had late lunch of Paella, "shall we have some wine?"
"Wine not" (pardon the pun)
Whole 14% Rioja done.
Walked the terrorists, went to some relatives on site who were not in. "Shall we go for a quick pint?"
Went to the bar over the road, 5 pints of Guinness later returned to caravan moments before daughter was going to report us missing. More wine with a very late stir fry.
Very muzzy head today and feelings of why?
Not quite non-alcoholic. 0.5% but still not a bad substitute personally, had a few over christmas last year when I was driver.There's a brewdog beer called nanny state - non alcoholic...supposed to be best non alcoholic craft beer out there. If it really is that good and I could get away with supping that would be a massive help.
But yeah, love craft beer myself. IPA all day/night long!
Cor its punchier than that, think it gets on for 7%...I've made the mistake of going onto that after a few pints before but it is a lovely beer!Also Lagunitas is a lovely drop, but unfortunately got me in a lot of trouble in Miami. 8 hours of drinking cocktails / spirits with the missus. Fancied a beer, ended up having 2 pints (5.9% I think?) very quickly... hour later hugging the toilet!
Congrats!Cor its punchier than that, think it gets on for 7%...I've made the mistake of going onto that after a few pints before but it is a lovely beer!
I can level with you guys now as we've had all the scans and everything now. My Mrs is pregnant with our first and that's why I've been re-assesing all this in terms of health and drinking etc....I'm not a raging alcoholic but I've always been a heavy drinker and a binge drinker in younger years. I've been thinking if I've got a baby coming and moving house etc I'm going to have enough on my plate as it is and its a great excuse to have a year off - it is true that I've always been keen to have an extended break but not had the willpower in recent years. I expect that I'll naturally be going out a lot less - almost never for the first months anyway - and not a big home drinker, so I expect it'll naturally reduce a lot anyway....I'll let you know if I decide to go full nuclear!
Thanks for all the input/opinions its nice to see some interesting points raised as well as messages of support - thanks to all that have contributed!
