    Have rediscovered the refreshing, coooling & therapeutic effect of Tiger Beer.

    Ahhh okay. The closest I got was some cereal biscuits the Singaporeans eat at Chinese NY and my team there sent some over. Exciting life I lead these days.

    I hadn't had a proper drink for ages until last week when I went to see a friend in Manchester. The aftermath has felt like it's taken quite a toll. I've felt like shit, been bad tempered and have avoided my bird and friends. This has gone on for close to a week.

    It’s funny you should mention this...

    That’s exactly how it is for me every time I pick up a drink. The bad temper strikes a chord especially. Do you think you know why you’re avoiding her and your friends? Is there something you feel you’ve done while pissed that you’re trying to ignore, even without knowing 100% if you have or what (if that makes sense)?

    I could drink 10-15 pints tonight way I feel today. I’ve had 3 in the bath and already feel my mood changing.

    You really need to bite the bullet as early as possible and make conversation, then you’ll soon know if you’ve pissed them off. It’s always better to know you’ve done something wrong, than to not know and have your mind second guessing constantly. That’s my experience.

    I've not done anything. I remember the night, my bird wasn't even there. I've just felt miserable and crawled into a shell rather than being social. I often get down a few days after drinking heavily, but it's really amplified this time.

    Ahh I see. Thought you might have been in situation I am of being a bad behaved drinker without wanting to be, and hiding away from pissing loved ones off.

    Do you do a job that involves exercising? Because exercise has always got me out of what you describe. Alcohol is a depressant so it’s natural to feel how you do after a really big session. Exercise, it’ll wake your mind up and you’ll feel better.

    I usually go to the gym and swim quite often. Haven't been in a while so you might've hit the nail there.

    Hopefully pal. I only speak from experience, I have an active job so eventually clicked on that what was bringing me round from being unsociable after an heavy weekend was the busy days running round more. Ended up getting gym equipment for home. Before that it was Thursday/Friday before I read messages and got chatting again. Didn’t even bath till a Wednesday most weeks.

    I'll jump in from my long hiatus.....

    I completely get where he's coming from on that. I didn't get involved in anything until late and it was after going through deep depression. Previous to that I didn't touch anything baring alcohol but I was so miserable that the hard rules I set myself I just ****ed off.

    There's lots more to it... I'll trickle it out I don't feel like a essay.

    But I worked in the fashion industry which is rife with it....so it was normal. Then going out for drinks without a bag became a panic attack that i'd rather not do than not have it.

    Running is brilliant for the mind, body and spirit. I’ve had many struggles with booze and drugs( still do) but I can’t emphasise enough how good getting up early and going for a run is. I’ve had many bouts of depression and feeling like shit from the booze and that. I don’t go running much, but I always know when I need to, and I always know it works. Even before work i’ll get up and go for a 20 minute run. It sets you up perfectly for the day ahead, and you feel like you can deal with anything. I love being in the pub, and I love the pub environment. It’s just sometimes I have time out and give myself some DIY rehab and start running again.

    Since being on SlimmingWorld, my alcohol consumption has really gone down. Last week I only had 12 units. This week, so far, I’ve had 3 units. Will have a few units tomorrow night , but only 3 measured single vodkas with slimline tonic. I usually just pour it in and it’s way more than a double. That was probably 5 nights a week

    I always considered Slimming World an unnecessary scam, but it does seem to help a lot of people.

    Did you ever read that book?

    It’s a diet that seems to work. I grant you I pay £4.95 a week to use their scales, but it’s the only way I’ll stay on track by being weighed each week. I lost 4 1/2 lbs last week :)

    I’m reading it now, on and off. I started it on holiday and find it funny. I’m a slow reader , apologies :laugh:

    It's the "syn" nonsense that I find a scam. Got into a huge argument with someone that goes about it once. Apparently the old tried and trusted method of putting fewer calories into your body than the RDI isn't sufficient enough of a process for losing weight.
