Last Drink

Going to have my last drink tomorrow.

Why last drink?
Well, you know about my liver issues. I've now been referred to a consultant. It is teh serious. No more "mostly" abstinent,

Why tomorrow?
Tcha. I only found out today. If chucking it all in was that easy I wouldn't have a problem.

What decision am I asking for help with?
I'm not really. But it has to be my last drink. Sorry to be dramatic but we are talking about serious health issues here. I don't have cirrhosis... yet. Doc says that is the next step. Previously they've just talked about cutting down. Not any more.

I want something chococlate-y. Cocktail-y. Thick.
Yumyum.
I will let you kow.

If'n I make it through the next two days (!) I'd love to hrear your choice, if you had to make it.

I like margaritas. But that seems like more of a summer drink.

Good luck, Sundae.

For my last drink I'd choose a rum runner or a Bahama mama. Something fruity and rum based.

Had Baileys with Mum last night. Yummeh!
And yes, I do love a lassi. Not mango though. Or salted.

Last drink? A nice single malt like Glenlivet Nadurra or The Macallan 18. Although it sounds like you're describing a Mudslide ...

But more importantly - sorry to hear about your test results, Sundae.

If'n it's not too late, I suggest ...

Don't indulge in the "last drink" attitude. You're making a break, make it clean. Don't be dragged reluctantly into your healthier future, walk boldly into it and embrace it.

If you want to do something dramatic, go (with a friend/witness) to a bar, order a glass of whatever, then look the drink square in the eye and pour it down the sink.

"I will NOT drink you! You have no power over me. IT ENDS HERE! "

Then tap your heels together three times and say "I want to go home with David Tennant".

That ought to do it.

Nice Zen. I like where you're head's at! That's pretty much what I did when I gave up smoking. I had just bought a new packet, all the while telling myself I had to stop. I even got so far as removing the foil and started taking one out. Then I got a picture in my mind of my Mum who at that point had only a few days to live, and my boys telling me not to smoke and I took all of them out of the packet, ripped their heads off and flushed the tobacco parts down the toilet and the filters went in the bin.

I have never so much as bummed a smoke since that day. Not even taken a drag from a friends cigarette.

It is very liberating to know that you can just walk away, and believe me, it can be done. It's all in the mind.


As to my last drink. If it came to that for me, I'd make mine a very nice Sav Blanc. Who knows what sort. There are so many good ones out there these days, but that's what it'd be.

I'd be sitting in my front yard at the picnic table with the BBQ cooking a nice steak. A nice salad in front of my, and some nice cheese and crackers. I would savour that wine. Make it last, and smile after the last sip.

Then I'd move on.
