Re: What drugs are you on?

Went out for my birthday, on Monday night. 2 pints of Peroni, a glass of wine and a gin and tonic. A few years ago, that would have been my starter....

Re: What drugs are you on?

On shift not drinking I have clarity and some day to day shit and problems may get sorted quicker without a second thought  but day before last shift I’m counting hours down to a drink.

That little break of 11 days showed I can do it if necessary. I think generally it's that look how good I am at drinking thing that takes over. Except the person you're saying it to is yourself.

Started early today. 5.30pm. Celebrating wins for the Bickle household teams....

I've had 5 cans of Thatcher (I know) gold cider.  Off out for luncheon ale tomorrow, traditional stylee.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Me and misses since we came in at 6.30 , done 2 bottles of red and on my 3rd gin . Only medication I’m on is eye drops for glaucoma.
Waiting for her to go to bed so I can watch the championship.

To stand aside is to take sides.

What's wrong with having a pot of tea of an evening?

6 weeks ago, I'd had a bad dose of cold/man flu and it'd got onto my chest as it tends to do, and i'd been coughing & coughing & coughing. Anyhows, i had a dullish ache on my side, just under my rib cage, which got a little worse when i shifted or when i took money out of my wallet. I thought i'd pulled something. Went to the doctors. The doctor said "more than likely a pull, but we'll do a liver function test to be safe". Anyhows, the results come back and they're high. High enough to scare the Dr, who says wait a week & we'll do a bigger range of tests. Don't drink in between. I have nearly an armful of blood taken out of me and another set done and they come back lower, but still high. So it's off to see a specialist. Another set of bloods later & an abdominal ultrasound later, it turns out I've got a fatty liver, which is the the start of problems if it can't be shifted. Causes inflammation, which causes scarring, etc......Off the booze for 6 months on medical advice, monthly bloods & exercise. She was like "it's very common in men your age" and "lucky you caught it when you did as it doesn't usually cause pain", and i wasn't on anywhere near 2 bottles of red a night man. Let that be a warning to the OMJ brethren, go for a LFT. NOW! (Well, as soon as you can). We are short enough on numbers anyway with people succumbing to alcoholic liver disease.

How's the abstinence?

Re: What drugs are you on?

Okay to be honest. I'm at 100% application, no brandy butter, cointreau cream or chocolate liquors over xmas. I'm drinking a lot of grapefruit juice & earl grey tea (not together). Also spending a fucking fortune at Holland & Barrett, popping pills like shaun ryder at his pomp. Milk thistle, liverel, vit d, b & e, garlic & turmeric. I've not noticed any improvement in my general health, not one. I've got to book myself another blood test before the end of the month.
