    Dry July

    I'm thinking about it.

    Has to be good for my liver and cough, my waistline.

    Anyone want to join? (Momentary lapses are allowed )



    Comrades, down that St Clair cask, re-cap that Tequila, enough of the Breezers

    Try Dry July

    Thanks Dill.

    Go hard till Sunday night, then go cold turkey.

    First nights sleep apparently is a bit rough ... then it'd down to willpower.

    ^^^ Dill, I think you have to work at being a true alcoholic.

    When I go to work I have a dry four weeks and don't even notice it. Maybe because I am so used to it. What I do notice is after a couple of days I feel healthier, have more energy and sleep way better.

    I always think I'll continue that when I get off the boat, yet here I am a week later and drinking Hong Thong with the dogs and thinking about contributing again to the 'what are you drinking today' thread.

    Big diference between being an alcoholic or a habitual drinker, but I guess the effects on your health are the same. That's the problem.

    I'll cheer you all on. I don't touch it Sunday to Thurs. Dill, you know what happened with your food intake when you tried giving up the smokes.

    Gave up smoking in 2003, from a heavy Drum or Samsun roll-ups smoker who woke up at night wretching from smoking so much, to nothing at all overnight. But been a fat b@stard ever since!

    No i dont believe that. I probably drink more over a week than someone I know who got a swollen liver and jaundice. But he drinks every single day and doesn't allow his liver(which is a miraculous regenerating organ) any days off

    What I was clumsily trying to say is the liver doesn't care why you drink, it still has to cope with it. I've kidded myself for years that because I have alternate dry months, I can relax when I'm off work and binge a bit. This is now coming home to roost for me, fatty liver, high blood pressure, etc

    It's a poison mate. I'm not preaching, I'm sitting with a whisky now. Wish I could kick the habbit. Its never stopped me functioning or working, but its still bad for me health.
