    Quit the Booze

    I have quit the booze now for 7 years. Feels bloody amazing.
    I was in 15 different hospitals in Bkk in 5 years and since stopping never been in one, apart from for my daughters.

    EVERYTHING is better booze free.

    Good 4 You chalky dee, Personally I like getting a bit pissed and not been in hospital in my life. I do wonder how sober people sleep tho, cause if I don't have a drink. which is 2 3 times a week, takes me ages to go to sleep and I wake up at 3 am.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    Well done CD, unfortunately without booze I face two problems in life, being boredom and sleeping.
    I think I'd need to become some sort of action junkie to succesfully give up. Moderation is more my issue, but I have yet to suffer health problems (well OK, some gout).

    I hadn't had a drink for about 2mths and then in the space of the last 5 days have been on the turps twice because there's a bunch of friends b'days and the like - another this weekend even.

    Can't help but thinking I was missing nothing other than horrible bloody hangovers.

    I have to say that I can't remember stringing together more than a week without a tipple for the last 40 years.

    I am on a low sugar diet, due to diabetes, so missed lunch and dinner so I can have half a bottle of Gin with a bit of tonic tonight. Any less after work like this week and I'd have gone insane long before I got diabetes....:-)

    Wife was worried sick about my drinking until she forced me to stop ...after 4 days she poured me a drinK!

    I guess you're lucky in a way that you can control it.

    Moderation is more my issue too. When I was younger I once went 2 years with no booze. You adapt to it fairly quickly.

    Why 15 different hospitals? Were you not paying the bill?
    Good to see youve turned your life around.....for your daughters sake especially.

    EVERYTHING is NOT better booze free just because YOU couldn't control your drinking.

    If you're not an alcoholic, you won't understand, but everything is better for me - I'm not saying everything is better for you. I wouldn't have a family if I hadn't quit. In fact, I'd be dead. 2 large bottles of Sang Thip a day, plus a few Changs.

    For an alcoholic to stop drinking a psychic change, or spiritual awaking is needed. I had the choice to die an alcoholic death or live a life on spiritual principles. It wasn't an easy choice.

    Well done Sir!

    Given the choice of having something alcoholic or another drink without, about 1 in 20 vervet monkeys become instant binge drinkers, gulping down so much booze they eventually pass out.


    Around one in 7 are heavy drinkers who like their spirits neat, while most are moderate drinkers who prefer to wash down their alcohol with a little fruit juice.

    Just one in 7 monkeys prefer to not have an alcoholic drink at all.

    It's just the fookin system.

    Won't allow them credit cards or shopping trolleys.

    No wonder you spent so much time in hospital.
