If that's as scary as you get I wish you were my headmaster - Now that does sound scary. I'm nice too, honest (eh, Jon!)... And now I really must go!

Just re read. Oh, we all got confused! You said, sarcy, not scary, didn't you Barks. How did the LEA come out well in that article? I'm confused. Did I mention them? Can't remember. Oh, well, sorry you didn't get pay rise etc...

Oh no!!!! I'm not even going there. Give up drinking? I'd rather see r*ngers win the league. On second thoughts...

Good luck Ian
Tried unsuccessfully when training for FLM 2001 although cut back considerably and felt much better. Might give it a go after Xmas again since FLM 2003 is looming

Ian you can do it. I find it's the first few days that are the hardest especially if you drink a bottle of wine a night like me!!!

Once you're over that you can get satisfaction in sitting watching everybody else making a fool of themselves when pissed.

Makes you feel kinda superior being sober!

Am I really a control freak?

Hi Ian,

Best of luck mate wiyh your quest and I hope you get to NY.

I had been stopped drinking for 2 years and I felt fantastic and I thought I would just have the one, well here I am back drinking again, I keep giving up every month but only last a few weeks, allthough I dont drink nowhere near as much now as I used to, which is good,
so watch how you go and dont give in.

All the best, Gaz...............

all the best mate, well done on taking the hardest step, we'll be rooting for you

Well, I just seen a thread about giving up drink and I thought "why would anyone want to do that"? Then I went back and read the original post. Ian, I take my hat off to you mate. It's an admirable thing to do (not to mention bloody hard - at least it is if you're from the Buckfast republic like me ha, ha).

All the best mate.

Ive done many things in my life, but dont think i could do that
Good luck
