I used to have two drinks a night.  One for me, one for my brother who lives far away.  A few months ago I started having only having his drink, the wife made me quit drinking.

I had dinner with some people who hail from middle eastern parts yesterday, and they were as shocked as the rest of us are. These folk are such kind people, that they volunteer at the local commu

Remembering in this instance, that the Haka is a sign of respect, and solidarity, for the victims, and their families.

A trial to give up the evening wine temporarily had to be postponed til further notice due to boredom . 

Tell me about Boredom, no booze, confined to bed/wheelchair for 18 months, only time left home is for hospital visits, no visitors for 10 months due being high risk from Covid etc.  ...   it is driving me mad. 

I was told in no uncertain terms “Stop Drinking or you will Dead within 3 months” this was when I came out of a 2 week coma for Pneumonia and Multiple Organ Failure. Basically I had nearly drank myself to death.

Before this happened I was up at 5:30 am for work, 60 hours a week, never called in sick enough etc  on a diet of approx 48 Beers and 2 Bottles of Vodka per week, a total functioning alcoholic.

So, I am bored but slowly recovering, and it is better than being dead.

Not a lot actually beer was less than 30 Cents a can and Vodka about $3 per bottle in Vietnam.

Same with smokes $1 per pack, there was no financial incentive to pack in either, been of the smokes over 2 years now.

People who don’t Drink and Smoke don’t live any longer, it just fucking feels so.

Why do people who have given up drinking always go on about how long it is since they had one?


I realize that counting can drive non teetotalers up the wall, it used to drive me mad,”shut the fuck up I don’t care when you stopped drinking”, but for alcoholics it is a coping mechanism.


I have nothing against drinking or people enjoying a Drink, I am far from a hypocrite and wish I could join them, but alas I tried to fit 100 years of excesses into less than 60 years of life haha. It’s my own god dammed fault I know, simple as that, but fuck did I have some fun.

I can't for a clash with meds I take drink anymore, but sure as hell I miss it and would like nothing better to sit down and have an ice cold beer laos from the corner shop beside the Day Inn, but I can't and sadly do count the days since my last drink,


As his royal pompadour said, it is a way to remember not to drink

Those afternoons sat outside the Madrid Bar in the Pong watching them put up the street market with a cold one or eight. 

Happy days when our bodies were working and bits weren’t wearing out or bits dropping off
