Beat the Booze



  • Kirwan and MvJ have inspired me by their challenge (I say their but in actual fact it's Kirwans challenge to MvJ)

    They are going to try and beat each others booze free periods by a day each time.  It's currently at 13 days.

    So far I'm on 2, but will try and get to 14



  • You might want to start this after the six nations....



  • I'd just like to say, before my websence shuts me off the Fern in 11mns, that G&T's are a girl's drink. Kirwan should be ashamed of himself for having them in the first place.

    In other words, not drinking a G&T for 13 days is no great achievment in my book.

    That certainly is a fair comment.

    Kirwan:

    I realise the 6N is on, and I will obviously start from1 every time we meet up for a drink.  Still a good idea



  • I'm in for this. 1000 curses on Kirwan for setting the initial bar so high though. But when I beat him the victory will be sweet indeed. Then MvJ is off to the pub immediately to celebrate.

    Unfortunately I have taken a bit of a tumble tonight--cue Kirwan: I told you so  😁, being unable to get to sleep, so I have cranked two scotches. This, I hope, will put me in good stead for a dawn run tomorrow. That is only a fair trade off I am telling myself...

    That lapse aside, I have not wanted a drink mid-week for the past couple of weeks. So I've mastered it mid-week; the problem as Kirwan has pointed out is in the pub when the rugby is on. Unfortunately I have hellos and farewells on each of the next 3 weekends, but after that look out! All it takes is two booze-free weekends and the record will be smashed. Shortly afterwards, hopefully MvJ will be as wellÂ

    Game on pussies!



  • Just  thought about it and if you start on a thursday and get to 14 days you can then celebrate big style on the Friday night!!!!

    If you start Monday, you'll probably beat the record by 4 days and that's not fair  :happy:



  • Now that is good thinking. Together Hooroo, our brain-power and collective rat-like cunning will defeat the mighty Kirwan and his effing will-power.Â

    ooh goody, if we team up does that mean 7 days by both of us amounts to a new recoed???  I can do that with one hand tied behind my back (which makes it bloody difficult for twist-offs)  :happy:



  • I'm not worried, neither of you will get close MVJ will never start....

    And PdP, I went for the lowest damage drink - I don't normally drink them.

    We had to talk him out of a white wine spritzer



  • You bloody liar!

    My first pick was a vodka and diet coke.

    This is all so very gay.

    This is true.  To be fair, you did avoid hitting me last time.  I expect another gentlemanly game again!!!



  • You didn't avoid hitting yourself though



  • Indeed.  Begginners luck.... although it wasn't good



  • Have arranged to leave early so I can walk and get a bit warmer than last time. Should stop the old man syndrome I had last time.



  • Have you seen the fucking weather.  You'll either drown or get zapped by lightning

    Hey, I walked home in the snow the other day. Bad weather has to be ignored in this country.



  • Well you'll be carrying another 2 kg's of weight due to your wet hai.... oh sorry......

    ... I know, I know squash ball, back yadda yadda yadda
