    Wheels falling off

    I got drunk last night.

    First time in a long time.

    Didn't mean to. I was out with the Koreans at my school for a trip away.

    I don't mind sipping a little soju or bekseju to be polite at the table when people toast or want to pour me a drink. More often than not I just have water or Sprite poured.

    Not sure what happened last night but a couple of sips here and there and I started to feel the buzz again. A few more sips and I was happy. Then before I knew it had pounded a couple of bottles of soju and drank several mugs of beer.

    I ended up on the beach with my co-teacher and my missus pounding beer after beer. I figured that if I had broken the no drinking rule I might as well drink for all I was worth since it wouldn't be happening again.

    Not sure where another four teachers came from (including Mr Han) but I think they were sent to rescue my co-t from me (even though it was her idea) she wasn't having any of it and wanted to stay up until sunrise. We eventually gave in around 330am where we ended up at the wrong hotel.

    So how do I feel about it.

    I'm sad that I broke my sobriety. I know that I am not going to start drinking again, I will have to completely refuse all alcohol from now on to make sure that doesnt happen again. The hangover today wasn't worth the effort I put into getting it in the first place.
    I have no off switch.

    I find just thinking about hangovers is enough to make me stop drinking ever again

    Good effort.

    Sorry to hear you fell off the wagon. Now I understand why you were in the wrong hotel. Next time just say No!

    Is one of the other reasons the fact that it's full of Koreans?

    I had a couple of birthdays over there, drinking that Korean White Horse scotch,, damn that awful shit, but a good time was had by all, even the ones that fell out thru the window, fell on the mamasans coffee table and made toothpicks out of it and the one that fell down the stairs.Don't know why them cvnts didn't buy american bootleg booze tho, cause them days Korean shit was damn near unpotable.

    Glad I don't drink it no more, never did get around to actually quitting, just for 25 years I ain't had to have a drink.
    Well maybe I will some day again. Hope it is as much fun as it used to be at one time.

    Good thread Squirell.

    Breaking the no-drink rule is occasionally is common as you know.

    And since you didn't enjoy the day after and the feeling, it's likely a confirmation that you're not into drinking anymore.

    Cheers to that.

    for sure, the GIs used to get it at a PX and then sell it to a mamasan and it was all out of bond, but even at street prices was cheap compared to that which could be bought in an American liquor store in the states.

    Don't get down on yourself! Look upon it as proof and confirmation that one or two becomes 10 or 20. You're extra-sure now of what happens

    This can be a good thread about drinking, and stopping and/or re-starting drinking. I remember the other thread started by a poster here that turned out to be a good discussion among us about drinking, why we drink, good and bad experiences with the drink, and deciding to reduce or stop imbibbing.

    Recently, I have seemed to have lost the desire for drinking, and after 2 beers, just stop because of boredom with it. I've lost little (not a lot) off of the waistline because of it, so far.

    As I get older, it doesn't seem to be as entertaining as it used to be.

    Since returning to Canada, I've lost interest, too. Not nearly as fun as Bangkok, which I must say was a fun town to get drunk in! Here, going down to the local "micro-brewery" and getting drunk is pointless. And boring.

    Can't imagine life without my few beers of an evening, but in the back of my mind I realise I should probably quit it. I am a dad now as well.

    I do look forward to those cold ones though

    Is it difficult to quit? I probably haven't had a day off for 10 years. Never drink spirits only beer. Never miss work because of it, but in the back of my mind I feel maybe a change is due
    You know what 1B are AWESOME for?
    throwing at cats
    it only costs a single baht
    and they'll either chase it, or get hit by it and look pissed off
    I now use that system to value prices of things
    for example, a 3,000B slag has to be at least as awesome as three thousand catbahts

    taking a bit of drugs like drinking is ok, we all need it, and it gets worse as you get older

    don't feel guilty, you know you liked it

    I've cut out the beer almost completely. But about 2 hours before bed, I have a light bourbon (Jim Beam) with water. I have about 3 of these. Then I get tired and get horizontal.
