Re: What drugs are you on?

A good pal of my dad's used to drink 25 pints of tetleys a day minimum. He was a well know pub landlord.  He would do ten pints at lunch between 12 and 3 then retire for a couple of hours. Between half 5 and 7 he would do 5 pints then nip upstairs for his tea. Back down for the other 10 pints to close his shift.

That was just him staying in...

I was pissed in his pub once and he delighted in telling me he could drink more green paint than I could lager.

He ended up poorly and had a liver transplant... the donor kidney was off a fella in his 20s... he felt like brand new and resumed drinking with a renewed vigour thinking he had had thirty years added to his drinking shelf life.

He didn't

Re: What drugs are you on?

I've got no off switch, always been the same.  Had some great times over the years but you get to a point when you realise you can lay almost every problem you've caused at the door of the pop.  Then when you think about it more, it's always when you've had more than a standard share.

My limit?  Reckon it should be 4/5 but that's "getting the taste" country. 

I can't weigh up whether it's a problem or not.  It sometimes is but am I prepared to admit it?

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

I need a word with myself.

Re: What drugs are you on?

I've known for years I've got a drink problem. I try and keep it to weekends these days, but struggle. Smoking weed was always my Achilles heel. Now I've discovered vaping, which I can't decide is better or worse.

Why not watter it a bit. Carafe it and make it 2/3 vino and 1/3 corporation pop?  I bet it would still taste like wine.

Re: What drugs are you on?

When I was cutting down on the pop but still going to the pub I started skipping the alcoholic drink in the first round of the night and ordered a carbonated water with ice.  If anyone said owt I'd say I was really dehydrated.   After doing that for a bit, I'd make it the first two rounds of the night.  I got to the stage where on a Friday night I'd do that until maybe 10pm.  Then drink as per usual to midnight or so.

I'd still get drunk, but it was pleasantly drunk rather than wasted.

That's not a half bad idea.  Managed to avoid invites to go out and only had a shandy with lunch avec Mrs Perrin.  In Wetherby, we went for a wander.

Im sorry I didnt see this before I went out. Saw all of that and more.

A night of drama but all the way through I felt like someone watching through opaque glass. Not in it, not seeing it clearly but experiencing all the sights, sounds, feelings and smells.

Groups of pissed up work folk a plenty. Not the usual city lads after work but groups of women and men the wrong age and look all out of the comfort zone of urban bliss. Leathered, talking loudly and falling over.

The highlight of the night was not the scantily clad young and old ladies but the lady bus driver on the way home singing to her self. Some random tune and song. Was just perfect, making everyone feel happy on there way home from their xmas celebrations. The air was filled with a buzz of warm drunken communal bliss.

Right up until the chap in front of me on the bus (coincidentally my next door neighbour but 1) let out the unmistakable sound of a pavement Pollock all over the bus window to his immediate left. Not enough distance for the all too familiar splatter but what it lacked in sound it made up for in smell. I immediately moved to the back of the bus and my neighbour skulked off the bus at the next stop and I can only assume walked home the remaining 2 miles. The shit drinking cunt.

I enjoyed being out on a night, but not enough to make it a regular occurrence. Cant believe I made a full time career out of going out and getting fucked up.

Re: What drugs are you on?

Always been a big drinker.I think the big difference between our generation and our dads/grandads is we drink at home as well as going to pub easier option easier to slide into every night habit.
Engineering job I have now has made a massive impact on my drinking regular on the spot breathalyser and drug tests.Company alcohol limit is a 9 micro grams per 100 millilitres.Less than a third of police test.No drink at all until days off.Its shit but I feel a bit better.
