I'mma climb on the band wagon with all y'all. My bloodwork came back and everything was all good except my liver functions were all high. Despite not having had more than about two bottles of wine since November, when I unofficially hit the wagon.

So the doc told me not to drink for 6 weeks, which wouldn't have been a problem if he hadn't told me I couldn't. Nothing makes me want to do something more, than being told I can't. Even if I didn't want to in the first place.

So now I'm officially not drinking. Even after six weeks is up, I get the feeling that that won't be the end of it either.

That is some scary shit bro and I know that guy who wants to do mostly what people tell him not to.

Sober weirdness. I'm getting better at it but its still clumsy. We put a roof on my brother's house yesterday. Traditionally we'd all get tanked after so I just eased out after dinner, leaving the boozing to those qualified to handle it.

good for you, Griff.

it's always better to wake up sober. Always.

Yeah, if I can focus on how I'll feel the next day, I'm golden.

Nice non-alcoholic beer I found called Kaliber by Guiness. Delish!

On the non-drinking wagon 7 years, 1 year of non-smoking now too.

I was pleased with my efforts but after reading through this thread now feel quite pathetic in comparison to some folk here. In a couple of weeks time, on June 13th, it will be exactly a year since my last drink.

Yay, Rhianne! Keep up the good work Squirrel and Griff and everyone else. I got my 1 year chip on May 10th. I hope I never ever again touch another drop.

Thank you Sam. On a separate but related (and more girly) note, I only press the bathroom scales down three-quarters as far as I did then too.

That's due to Global Decrease in the Gravitational Constant (which will need to be addressed after Global Climate Change is sorted out).

Can I get some of that over here, please?
And well done all you wagonners - keep it up, I'm cheering for you all!

Yes, thanks to all wagoners - you're helping to keep prices down.

I worry that I'm causing unemployment in Scotland.

Well done Rhianne. Everyone has their own row to hoe, comparing success across different lives doesn't seem useful.

I used to smoke when I was a teenager between 12 and 16. Up to 2 packets/day of "Gauloises" (French brand, brown tobacco, no filter) by the end.

Then I began to think that my time doing laps in the pool sucked. So I stopped drastically. No cigs at all. And I got better.

On the evening of my 20th birthday, I was wishing for a smoke. And I thought : To hell with that, I'll be twenty only once, go for a cigar.

I cannot say that I'm addicted to cigar, but I indulge once in a while (8 or 10 times a year) and they're big (Churchill size).

As for the booze, I had a few episodes as a youth where I went on a binge session. Now, I'm out of that. I still indulge, but I drink a lot less and a lot more better. From Jhonn y Walker Red (2 bottles/night every week end) to Balvenie Cuban Wood, my current favorite (half a glass every 2 or 3 weeks).

On the drug front, never did it. And I never had that desire. Unless you consider girls as a drug
