but then you look at the russians and these nomadic tribes in northern and eastern europe and they live to bonkers ages and are addled all the time. The Scandinavians are puddled when it comes to drinking.

My grandad was on the gargle all the time and drank like a fish - lived to 85.

There was a Japanese distance runner years ago who did his long runs on a Sunday and when he finished he'd ritually get mortal - and he was an elite athlete.

It's odd.

I'm in. Genuinely having a rest from it. Early target is to United's first game but I may extend it.

If I'm serious about running I need to do it. It also gets me down easily now so I'll be glad to be off it. More to life than booze at weekend isn't there?

Just got my puppy today too so that will help. Keep me busy.

alcohol is a killer in that respect, as you get older.

i ran my fastest ever marathon on average training and a booze filled lifestyle at the age of 28.... (2hrs 56). at 40, the changes i'd need to make would blow my mind, but to run fast again the booze would have to go. it makes you bloated and also really stiffens the muscles and the body. but it's easy to say...

it's strange how it affects different people in different ways. i suppose it's like smoking in that respect.

it is mental that we willingly pour what amounts to flavoured posion down our throats for fun though, and pay for the privilege to do so.

fully aboard the temperance train after this weekend

BTW - i know alcohol isn't great and i'd be better without it, but the job i do and the life i have means i am stressed a fair bit. alcohol helps me chill out. i don't get hammered, but it's not good to rely on it.

Yep.

In my 20s a bit of exercise could keep it off. Not anymore. I'm just getting nowhere because of the booze.

Lemon and ginger tea. I gave up caffeine a while back, although I do sometimes like a green tea in the morning. Don't drink normal tea or coffee. .

Cleaned out my grinder and had no idea how much kief had gathered. Not opened it in two years Anyway, decarbed it and made a wavy milk. Nice evening Lapsang. Taste is surprisingly nice.

Smoking is far more unequivocally harmful, though.
