Cider's not called 'gutrot' for nothing. it's possibly one of the worse alcholic drinks in the world for it's physical effects.

i haven't done a chart, in the last 2 weeks i have drunk, 4 units of beer, 2 units of vodka,2 units of wine in total.

I'm trying to keep an eye on it as the alcohol affects my arthritis and my gout (yes I know, start a queue to point and laugh),

Gout is nothing to laugh about I should know I used to suffer terribly from it years ago. I do have poor circulation which does affect it. How about your cholesterol Bez?

Cholesterol is fine mate - surprising for a big fecker like me I know, so is my blood pressure and heart etc

I take Alopurinol for the gout - suspresses the production of uric acid which causes the pain. Only problem with that is that I have to take it until the end of my days. Along with the diclofenac for the osteoarthritis I feel like I rattle sometimes... :-/

I need to get serious about lowering mine (cholesterol) and getting the weight down.  :-[ :( I've been telling myself for years that it wasn't a problem and I could do it whenever I wanted but life has taken over. I need to do something, now!

So you're egg laying days are well and truly over then..hang on a minute Dic-lo-fenac isn't that a form of Viagra? ;D

I know, it was an "I'll get me coat" type joke ...Dic(k)-lo(w)-fenac  Tsk, I dunno ::)

Seriously though, have you tried to find any herbal/alternative therapies ? Might be worth a look at :-/

I've just had a break from the drink. 2 weeks. The penny dropped that it was affecting my mood and decision making. I was drinking 6 nights a week. Combined with some dark times and frequent very late nights..... it weren't a good combination. I didn't really figure all this out until I stopped, after which time I had pretty extreme withdrawal and also clarity of thought.

I'll probably be back on it again shortly, but in moderation. Every now and then, Friday nights maybe. I've told pretty much everybody close to me about this, so if / when I do drink again they can give me the heads up if it becomes a problem (i.e. if I don't notice myself).


Did you lose any weight over the two weeks? I need to lose a significant amount and I'm thinking cutting down and more exercise would do it.  :)

LMAO!!! ;D

Makes me think of when I interviewed a guy that applied for a job a few years ago......I knew I'd seen the guy before, but I couldn't figure out where,,,,,

,,,,,halfway through the interview it came to me:

I'd seen him and his missus on TV.......they were on a fetish TV-show.....(don't ask why I watched it)......featuring them both in rubber suits......him in handcuffs, and her whipping the living daylights out of him..... ::)

I honestly don't remember anything else from that interview ;D ;D
