Bad Two Weeks

Recommended Posts

Amazed at how quickly my Blood Pressure has come down, less than a week ago It was 163 / 105 which is Stage 2 Hypertension it is now down to 118 / 83 which is desirable for Systolic and just into prehypertension for diastolic (60-79 is desirable), Doctor says my diastolic will drop once the Hep B treatment starts.

 

Sayjann be careful with the booze, I once cut down to a couple of beers a night and before I knew it I was back up to 8 pints and half a bottle of Vodka a day, it slowly creeps up on you and before you know it you are back at square one, the advantage I have in Thailand is that there are many fresh refreshing fruit juices as an alternative and my Girlfriend is teetotal.

 

Keep it together mate, we will support each other,

One good side point of not drinking is the boner seems to go up faster and stays up longer.

On the downside, Thaialnd is a hard place to live without booze. It is almost impossible to go in a bar without immediately being approached for a beer.

I manage well without drinking, I have no problem asking for a soda water with ice and lime when I go out.

Some of the bars even have diet coke!!!!

i often abstain from the alcohol during the day in thailand and like nothing better than a very cold tomato juice with lashings of worcester sauce,i get the bottle left beside my glass so i can top up.

a few fizzy drinks are also great during the day to elevate the hangover from the previous night.

it causes a frown from my fave thai lady who serves me with the drinks as over the years we have had many drinks together.

 

i'm a lightweight when it comes to drinking and 3/4 thai beers usually get me quite happy ad get silly.

I made it a practice to order fresh orange juice in the gogo bars, until it dawned on me how much sugar I was consuming. If a spoon won't stand up in the middle of a drink, Thais think it doesn't have enough sugar. Thais even put sugar in their sugar. :p

I'm fond of passion fruit and the mrs came home last week with half a dozen bottles of "fresh juice" from the local market.

Even breaking it down to 20% juice and 80% soda water it was too sweet for me to drink.

I told her to give it to the kids but she insisted on drinking a bottle herself and spent the next day on the hong nam.

Some how this ended up being my fault.... :blink:
