    I've been there Mark, i used to drink myself to sleep every night of the week, just have a glass of red wine with my dinner most nights and have a few beers on the weekend, all though i did fall of the wagon a few weeks ago and sunk loads of whisky, i told my wife i wanted a divorce and i slept on the sofa to annoy her as well, what a twat i am at times she forgave me again as she knows it's the drink talking and has seen it all before with me, just need to keep clear of the Scotch in big quintities, take it easy Mark though it frys the brain cells

    Good point Jon If i don't drink i don't get to sleep for a couple of nights, by the time the third comes round i'm so wacked nothing stops me.

    I agree Marco, i know it's not good but i'm still coherent now & i'm about 2/3 the way there to my usual consumption. I do like good quality stuff & i'll drink that in moderation, but the daily stuff is nowhere near as expensive & i get where i'm going for £3.70 a day
    Bests, Mark

    As mentioned earlier, I think - currently (almost) "on the wagon" - stopped drinking in the week, and cut back at the weekends - for a start, I can't keep flushing money down the toilet (two of us getting through a dozen or so bottles of wine a week, equates to £500 + a month! ) and then I also know it isn't going to do me any good... It just creeps up on you though, and very easy to get into the habit of opening a bottle or two every night... Like Mark, though, I find I can't sleep for the first couple of nights without, by the third morning I can't get up!

    Marco.
    I do work nights and when I work it can be between 4-14 nights in a row so I don't drink at all. But when I do drink its as stated 2-3 bottles of 13% wine a night. Usually 2 to be honest.

    Strange thing is I don't feel too drunk (I know that seems hard to imagine) and I never get hangovers...

    Very nice Côtes du Rhône from one of the great producers - Paul Jaboulet Aîné - Parallèle 45, 2009

    Excellent value, bursting with fruit and a rounded finish - recommended.

    I did the http://www.realaletrail.net/ the other weekend and had a great time

    would recommend doing it but might be best not at weekends as it does get a bit busy on the train, 10 deep at some of the platforms !

    Just bought a box of 6 bottles of this stuff for £16.50. Quite nice to, no doubt much better once it's chilled

    Not exactly a wine fanatic so it'll take me a while to get though it
