    Do you like getting completely hammered?

    3 years ago, the answer would have been yes, these days not at all,hardly ever. Toned it down significantly since turning 30. I do enjoy a cold beer with dinner, but just not to excess and oblivion anymore. Got better things to be doing with my life rather than recovering from the night(s) before: hiking, swimming,cooking and just pottering about the mean streets of Mandalay. Does kinda limit the ol' social life here a bit, it's a kinda heavy drinking expat scene here- no (well maybe a little) judgment, but it's just not my thing these days.

    Potential non valentines dinner tonight with a group, but think I will makes my excuses and decline. Hard partying crowd in one of my favorite restaurants. Paranoid and somewhat aloof of me not wanting to attend? Perhaps.

    I don't like getting hammered, just a light buzz.

    Part of issue here for me in Mandalay is that everyone seems to know everyone. Don't have that Bangkok anonymity here . There is a nasty undercurrent of gossip and backstabbing, I'm not going to miss that aspect at all.

    Don't go if you don't want to.

    I also don't do the hard partying thing anymore. I may have a binge if I'm out with a big group of people (at least in the past), but generally I get buzzed on a few beers (2 or 3) these days (getting older I suppose). I tend to be a one-on-one or very small group person most of the time. I don't like overly big crowds.

    That's not to say that I never will again. Berlin in late April: party time

    Actually a very easy place to get entry into if you go in the morning- bit quirky like that this place.

    Getting plastered isn't something I look forward to anymore, as it was for soooo many years before. It's the hangovers I can't deal with these days, after a big drink I'm fucked for 2-3 days and can barely function

    Still enjoy a drink, but have learned when to stop or ease-off the pace a little now.

    ^^I can see that. .. probably have drunk with zman, as have I.

    I've gotten blitzed with a few Ajarn members at a few parties in Bangkok.
    I specifically remember throwing chunks the next day out the taxi window on the way to the airport in BKK. I don't ever remember being that hung over. Bad influence those people.

    ^lol.... I'm remembering the few times I did get totally hammered, few and far between. That was one of those unforgettable nights at Oh My Cod, which is now closed. Had a few gentlemen walk me home a few streets over from Khao San as I couldn't walk straight. lol. Gosh, those were the days.. (not).

    Especially after I perfected the art of injecting wine rather than drinking it.




    Goes in a treat.
