    Temptation - falling off the wagon

    I had promised myself a three month period of abstinence from the booze and other evils but look: its a three day weekend, my mrs has gone to a seminar, I've had two "travel" weekends in the last month... Why the fuck shouldn't I have a beer and a bit of monkey backy???

    There is no reason not to indulge a little bit.

    Enjoy yourself.

    ^ Unlikely.

    Good point though.

    Having a beer & a joint while enjoying life's other pleasures, such as watching sport or something enhances the whole experience. You would be silly to deny yourself some pleasure because of some crazy moment you promised to stay off the booze for three months. That's too long.

    Weren't you pissing blood a few months back? That would be a a good reason to continue your 3 month holiday.
    Heck a few soda waters never hurt anyone.

    Its a personal choice. Some people can start and stop when they like without any adverse effects. Others cant stop when they start. Depends which category you fall into I guess. have a good mate who fucked up his life because of the grog. He ended up going to AA and has been on the wagon for 10 years. Poor bugger cant have even one drink or he will be right back in the gutter again.

    ^ Not on the wagon, you can fall off of it.

    He is doing it one day at a time, Just don't drink today.

    Easier than looking down the road and seeing that you can never have another drink, or even doing it for 3 months, there you reach the time limit and start again.

    I have been doing One Day At A Time for over 25 years and never a problem.

    Like I said. Depends what category you fall into. Some can start and stop at will and some cant stop once they start. Personally, I go week about because I am on call with my job and cant drink while working. But I do enjoy getting on the piss on my days off. But its getting to be an expensive hobby and I am considering knocking it off for a while to save some money.

    That was due to an opperation not related to my boozing. I'll admit I have some nasty predisposition to chemically dependent living but after month without getting really really boozed or wasted i start to get really bored. After a big sesh (like now) I'm all Allah ul Akbar and no need for intoxicants but two or three weeks later I start planning me next binge (three day weekends na ja )

    I am doubly cursed becuase i have long term syndrome that causes pain and sleeplessness and the only remedy (there is no cure) is synthetic opiates and sedatives ( great things for a natural-born-spinner to take sensibly)

    jeez mad dog its a hard to live like that and i hope you can get it sorted mate.

    friggin dangerous actually, as binging is what kills people so be a bit careful will ya.

    im a lucky bastard as the hangovers kill me and i can only get on the piss once a week as its a 2 day recovery.

    but give me bag of good blow and i'll keep smoking that shit till there's none left, not a fukin problem.

    thats rare these days as its too expensive so just get on the piss once and a while.

    I only get wasted once every few weeks. I can go weeks without beer,fags or drugs. But after a few weeks I forget about how crap a sesh really is and a boooze seems like the best idea.
