    opening a bottle and not finishing it surely isn't an option.

    I have my reams of literature to wade through, so I’ll have a look :laugh:

    A gin and slimline tonic is 3 syns , so that could be an option :)

    Fairy....forget the syns. Remember what the bible said...

    John.8. [1] Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. ... But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. [7] So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without syn among you, let him first cast a stone.

    Could be a get out clause.

    Well if the wine is a no no, seems the Gin is a viable solution....

    My sister in-law has been doing Slimming World for a few months and has had great results. Anyway, I know it's not an easy task but good luck with reaching your goals!

    Lads, I'm at a bit of a cross road. Having finished my masters and just moved back to Holland (I was doing my masters there but was conducting my research back in the UK), I have been hesitating over which 'career' path I want to take. Do you follow something you're more passionate about but less stable and less chance of succeeding or go for something more stable but less appealing to you?

    That all seems a bit complicated to me, as throughout my working life (many years ago now) I always chose the job that paid the most money, it worked out ok actually. ;)

    I would recommend doing something you are passionate about in the long run. If it is really something you enjoy, you will make it work. On the other hand, you wouldn't be the first person to lose that passion. What person do you want to be in 5-10 years? Give it some thought and then make a decision based on that would be the best advice I can offer.

    Depends on your situation & whether you can afford to take a risk or whether you need the stability,

    I grew to hate my first job in IT. God company, room to move up, good benefits. Hated it, really hated it...

    One day I just had enough & quit.
    I’d been there from aged 18 to 21. Still lived at home and had saved a bit. I was in a comfortable enough position to get out, reasses & decide on my next move.

    Fast forward 12 years - my current job I tolerate. After 8 years I’m sick to the back teeth of working nights.
    However, the job itself is easy & pays brilliantly for what it is. You will not find a job in the same industry that pays as much for so little! However, I’m fed up & bored with it.

    ...but...with a mortgage, a young family and a wife who still has another 6 months maternity leave I know full well I’m tied to my current job for financial reasons & the stability. I couldn’t afford to get out & start again.

    Dunno, if any of that will be of any use to you.
    Weigh up whether stability & finances are more important than passion & enjoyment right now.

    I'm really into this girl I met a couple of months ago. She's had bad experiences in relationships so can understand why she may be hesitant etc. I am trying to convince her but at the same time can appreciate what I have said to her, she's heard it all before. I am for real though. I back up what I say. I've been honest and upfront.

    I really want this girl. I've told her as well. I always lose out because every woman seems to have had a bad previous experience.

    Hopefully I can convince her.

    Words will just be noise to her if she's been badly hurt in the past. The best advice would be to show her by your actions rather than what you say. It'll take time but it sounds like you think she's worth it :)

    She is worth it. She's the first woman for a long time that has actually made me think. Made me want her. Made me positive. Made me feel good.

    I know words won't do much. I want to take action but without stepping over the line.
