The Rules Of Ruin: 2: Giving Up Drinking For A Month

Pumpkin Publog7 comments • 3,578 views

Hold on. This is supposed to be an article advising us the best ways to get really drunk hidden in an article warning us about how not to get drunk. Surely giving up drinking for a month is all about no hangovers. And yes, in a lot of ways it is. However let us really examine the reasons why you are giving up drinking for a month:

a) Because you think you have a drink problem. You certainly do if you are giving it up for a month to find out.
b) Health reasons. Trust me the body does not like enforced absences of ANYTHING. Get your metabolism antsy and you are in trouble.
c) To look virtuous to other people who are always telling you that you drink too much.

Basically giving up drinking for a month shows a lack of trust in yourself (or a lack of trust in others in your trust in yourself). Fine, you may not trust yourself, but if you are already going to go down the saint on one shoulder, devil on the other dualism, its only fair that I give some advice to the devil.

Aspall’s Suffolk Cyder SO LOOKS LIKE LIME AND SODA. So fool your mates, look virtuous and cheat that prissy angel on the right shoulder. Its also nice and strong. Num num.

    I’m thinking of not drinking in November, and then drinking double in December.

    Oh you jerks!

    Do you realise that this site comes top of a google search for people who GENUINELY want to quit…for a month or forever.

    I was searching the net for advice to give to my sister who has seen her marriage collapse because of drinking. Your childish garbage is hardly the sort of thing she would want to find is it?

    Grow up you prats!

    Erm brasseye, we hardly have any control over what gets listed where in Google! If we’re beating, say, Alcoholics Anonymous on a search for “giving up drinking” then I would strongly suggest that AA gets some better web people in!

    Implicit in the article is the fact that if you have a drink problem, then giving up for a month is not going to help. Giving up for good is the solution in that unfortunate situation, as I believe you know.

    Used to be good this website…spawned ILX/ILM don’t you know…

    In fact its been so long since I came across the site I didn’t recognise it.

    Getting the above article just irritated me..that is all.

    Carry on then…
