Hi KF2,

Sorry to hear you've had a bad day. As a hairy a*sed bloke, I'm afraid I can't advise with the PMT. But if your fighting the cravings, you're not alone. Perhaps an early night with a good book, or something? Anyway, there's always the reset button. Perhaps you could save that for a another day?

lol @ its only day three and people are near breaking pint. I have had a mate try and badger me to going to the pub but i have said a firm no. It seems some of my mates either prefer me drunk or just want me to fail.

KF and Caz keep strong and think about all the extra benefits like more money and extra weight loss.

Hope everyone is coping well with Day 3. KF, it will be better soon, don't be disheartened.

Whoops, fell off the wagon last night, and dont feel bad about it. I didn't drink a whole bottle of red but did have 2 very large glasses ..... had to!! First of all I was celebrating my run and The Hoff on Big Brother, and then I was comiserating The Hoff not being on Big Brother ;-)

No hangover though and shall go to the cinema tonight to ensure I'm back on again until Sat night when I'm going out :-)

Anyone recommend any good films?

Fell off yesterday afternoon, working lunch with boss (Italian - the meal not the boss)- she poured the red vino I could have said no but...

One large glass of Chianti

Films? pretty shit time of year for films 'Perfume' if you are into serial killer thrillers

'Eragon' for fantasy

'Apocaplyto' for gore

'Deja Vu' opens today for sci/fi (ish) political thriller

'The Holiday' for unthinking romantic guff

'Pans Labyrinth' for indi - sophisticated fairy tale set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War... Subtitled in Spanish you'll be lucky to find it

Survived the visitors and 2 bottles of red being consumed in front of me.

Out tonight with visitors again, but I know I can do it now. They were all quite supportive and didn't do the go on go on business!

Are there any priests on-line? I need to make a confession...oops!
04/01/2007 at 08:19
Well done JARS

Confession is good for the soul, but pretty bad for the liver I'm led to believe

I don't feel bad about falling off and I've climbed back aboard again.

Jars - well done.........

But not tonight......

Am also going to attempt this feat. Its the start in earnest of my training for the Edinburgh Marathon in May. Need to save the pennies after Christmas and need to get into shape. (I had a long ish break from running prior to this). My only exception will be 23rd Feb, Wifes birthday and a possible trip to London. 10th March am at the Scotland v Ireland Six Nations game beyond that am hoping to be on the cart till after the Marathon.

04/01/2007 at 09:18
Good luck Peter - I'll be at the Ireland England game at Croke Park, a huge test for my resolve
04/01/2007 at 09:26
Who cares about the soul - i won't bother confessing!

Back on track, no more booze until the Social in Norwich on 3rd Feb. You're all welcome!

SH - I've found a website for you:

simply copy and paste...

Gosh, some peeps are setting massive no booze targets, can't do rugby without beer so am avoiding the club for this month, will only miss one home game so not too grim. When does 6Ns start? Anyone know?
04/01/2007 at 10:05
Beginning of February I think. Huge, I play rugby as well but am going to make a conscious effort to stick to soft drinks after matches till then and probably watch the 6 Nations at home till I go to Murrayfield in March. (I'll be back to backing long runs and matches, so hangovers don't do me no favours...:-)). Just hope my resolve holds.

04/01/2007 at 10:15
Cheers Pete, sure you'll cope, I just have to avoid pubs and bars, so this basically mean not going out but it sure is a great way to save money.

well thats 3 days now without any alcohol that must be my longest teetotal run in many many months.

(heavy drinking at the weekend mind but thats because Im away for a short break)

I am resolutely determined not to regularly drink in the house anymore. Not just for Jan but for good.

I have been thinking about this a lot and I think the key in succeeding long term is to find your own balance.

We definately shouldnt feel guilty about a few pints down the pub a couple times a week, nor should we feel guilty about occasionally getting completely plastered on a night out. These are things that add to my existence not detract from it so cutting them out does not make sense.

whatever teetotalers might say a social evening out with the right crowd is greatly enhanced by alcohol.

It is home drinking that is the slippery slope for me, drinking in front of a film night after night, grabbing a can of lager when you get home instead of making a cup of tea or having a glass of orange juice.Its no good, its drinking for the sake of it and its stopping from here on in.

Couldn't agree more Jason.
Home drinking is my biggest problem too and I'm determined to cut it down. I've done two nights now alcohol free. Last night was bl**dy hard though!

I reckon if I can do 3 nights a week, off the booze, I'll be happy with that and see how it goes from there.
04/01/2007 at 10:43
I'm planning on doing this too......

Mainly just cutting down on the random mid-week drinking. I said I'd allow myself to drink when we're doing something, but that only really gives me excuses.

Want to have a good run at not drinking first! But I've got soooooo much wine in the rack :-)
