Alcohol and getting older.
I love a Sunday afternoon tipple more than any other. Virtually stopped drinking on a Friday to prolong life hopefully and it genuinely makes the weekend last longer. This Friday went to a mates for dinner, had a couple of cobras with a curry he had cooked for us all. Then up fresh Saturday for a 9am ride.Posted 3 years agopondoMember
Gave up the alcohol for lent and haven’t really missed it – and I thought I’d really struggle. We went away this weekend and had a few drinks, as the weekend had been arranged before we decided to give up for Lent, and it’s been nice to have a few drinks, but I’m as happy to get back on the wagon now the weekend’s over.Posted 3 years agowillardMember
It’s just easier to not drink.
I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago and celebrated by opening a couple of bottles of red over the last few weeks. I just can’t drink the stuff any more. Awful hangovers, terrible night’s sleep, dehydration. I felt appalling every time I had a couple of glasses. Even beer makes me feel rough.Posted 3 years ago
Not drinking is good. I like the effects of not drinking.
Re Hangovers- are you drinking enough water before you drink alcohol? Like regular consumption?
As I’ve said if I drink white or a poor/average quality red- hangover guaranteed even after 1 glass. If I drink high quality stuff I’m fine.
IMO you get hangovers if you are drinking pap or your body doesn’t get on with a specific tipple. I LOVE Jim Beam/JD- but boy I suffer in the morning. Whereas Mount Gay/Appleton – I can bang em away to the cows come home.Posted 3 years agogrumMember
I beg to differ Mrs B has PKU and aspartame in food and drink is a nightmare.
the claim that the two amino acids, phenylalanine and aspartic acid have neurotoxic effects. This is true in certain individuals and in high enough doses. The only subpopulation of individuals potentially susceptible to adverse effects from phenylalanine is homozygous phenylketonurics and in this case, food itself with much higher levels of phenylalanine from the protein in the diets contributes much higher toxicity for these unfortunate individuals. For those individual phenylketonurics that want to carefully control their intake levels of phenylalanine, they can do that by simply taking into consideration the amount of phenylalanine supplied by the aspartame product or, even more likely, simply refraining from use of these products. The USFDA requires that the aspartame product be labeled specially for phenylketonurics patients so that they will be aware of its presence in these products. As for the other amino acid in aspartame, the levels of aspartic acid ingested with aspartame use are many fold less than those levels responsible for causing adverse effects on the brain of animals and/or man. In fact, it is not clear that the experimentally derived data from animals is relevant to man. In any case, the levels of aspartic acid intake from aspartame are many fold below those needed to mediate neurologic effects.
Isn’t that basically like saying that she is allergic to aspartame? No-one claims that peanuts are evil because some people are allergic to them.Posted 3 years ago_tom_Member
I’ve had the past week off (and the rest of this week) so my alcohol consumption has gone up a bit and had a few nights out til 7-8am. I don’t think I can deal with the hangovers much more, just completely wasted the day after in bed/walking around the house not being able to say anything but “oh god”. I’m only 25 as well ffs. I’m having a month off it after this weekend.Posted 3 years agoSoloMember
Its been my curse, that I can count the number of hangovers I’ve had in my life, possibly on one hand and its not been for the lack of trying.
OP doesn’t appear to mention their age.
Mid 40s now and I’m getting bore with drinking.Posted 3 years ago
I’m more interested at the moment in finding a disc compatible frame, Ali or carbon, which doesn’t have an integrated HS.
