Work hard, play hard. Bottle of wine most nights, a fair amount at the weekends and my work drink heavily as well - we've got a bar at work full of free whisky and so on and when I go away to see my team in Budapest, now that's a party city. I love Hungarian PÓlinka!!

Probably because the average of 3 was more like 5 one night and one the next... as a 26 year old I could recover.

This was a Thursday night, was in the office the next day.
Got an alarm phone call at 8:30am for breakfast, woke up fully dressed but barefoot, found the loo roll wrapped around my foot saturated with blood, the sink full of cubes of glass from a tumbler, the floor covered in both blood and glass, the bath full of sick and gradually pieced together what getting back to the room. We had to pick up company cars for the roll-out that morning, mine stayed in the car park until 2pm due to my obvious intoxication.
It wasn't a problem though, I was conscious I was drinking a lot and the reasons (being away and in company and with nothing else to do but go to the bar with a healthy daily subsistence allowance), I didn't HAVE to do it and proved it by stopping if I ever started worrying about it.

This summer it's been most days. I've put on a lot of weight. Trying to stop the needless drinking where I ask if anyone fancies a couple of pints which turns into a huge session/night out somewhere. Need to stop having cans in front of the TV in the evening as well.
