Did it once raising money for Macmillan.

Concentrated on fitness again and felt healthier and fresher by the day, but was itching for that 1st pint.

The following month came and that pint I craved so much tasted disgusting! 6 more followed and I soon got back into the swing of things :laugh:

I sometimes go two or three days without a drop but I always feel like a bag of shit.

Can’t sleep, banging headache and shaky hands.

I’d be fucked doing it for a full week let alone a month!

I’m quite a big drinker but I’m seriously thinking of going dry for January and possibly beyond.



I’ll probably start clucking by the 2nd.

Me and the Mrs have decided to go for it. Unfortunately we have a couple of functions to attend during the month. We'll probably break our resolutions and carry the pledge on into Feb as a compensation.

Pretty much. We are both committed to losing weight though. Unfortunately alcohol is our biggest hurdle.

Mine too. I’m also planning to start a paleo diet and start running again. Not done any proper exercise for years.

Good luck to all trying. I gave up routine heavy drinking a few years ago. My biting wit kept getting mistaken for rude assholery and recovery times lengthened. Peer pressure is the hardest these days. I got a visit from a Blackpool mate earlier this year who just kept "getting them in" at every opportunity and a fight weekend in Vegas with another Blackpudlian included drinks with everything.

A couple of months ago I woke up remembering nothing. I had to put the night before together with receipts, social media posts and flashbacks. It was a rude wake up.

Social Media Posts are the modern equivalent of the "Where did I get the party bruise?" a morning after game we used to play.



"you fell out of the taxi"



"you slammed into the door frame as we were leaving"



"you threw a shot glass in the air and headed it as it came down"



Oh how we laughed.

My wife seems to bruise very easily. After most nights out she has the odd bruise on her legs.

I used to hate waking up in the Cells not knowing how I’d got there. Always a massive relief once I’d found out I’d not done much!

My “drinking memory” when when I was about 19/20, before that age a could remember everything no matter how pissed I was.

More frustrating for the staff that were done out of jobs because of them

I now have to defer the start date. Mate is off to the gulf for 8 months, so a night out before is required. I'll start a week late and run into February.
