Major Pleasures (3 Viewers)

Good for you, man. It's a far better way to live imho
You are gonna discover yourself and make your world bigger.
First month or so is a big adjustment, but the rewards never end, if you stick with it.




Living for other people and their expectation will get you nowhere. Go against the grain.
Be the salmon swimming upstream.
Again, just a take here.

But also, what can make the adjustment easier, is to find people doing non-boozy things. There are many of us out there. We are legion.

But Drinking is cool

Thanks!
Before I used to give it up for a couple of weeks to prove that I could. But now I feel an awful lot better, and don't particularly miss it at all. First week is hard, but after about a month it's handy. Another help is the beer here is mainly shite, it's very hard to get decent stuff. And I'm not really up for drinking spirits in pubs.

Anyway, people's expectations couldn't really be much lower in fairness. I'm already the weirdo Yank, sometimes Canadian.

Ah yeah, I'm not all that stressed about it. It's just the conversation I'm not all that keen to have.
It's more if I can dodge the question, I'll dodge it.
People seem to forget after a minute or two anyway.

I liken it to escape velocity
Initially, it's hard every time you quit - but once you make it through the first phase, it's free and easy. You form new habits.

I used to say, "I just got tired of it. The money, the hangovers etc. And I like doing stuff in the mornings"
But you don't owe anyone an explanation, just yourself and whoever loves you.
 
I was in the supermarket there and there were two aul wans next to me.

One of them is grumbling a bit, and the other announces:

Sure you'll NEVER get an appointment with Dr Something for the weekend, probably be next week before he'll see ye.

I know, yeah.

I don't know what you're gonna have to do.

I dunno either.

I guess you'll just die.

....Yeah.


I lost it. Dead pan AF. Directly to death. Do not pass Go. Do not pick up $200. Dead.
 
Got keys! I canโ€™t wait to sit in my favourite room. After a lot of cleaning & painting.

congrats, Jane, thats a fine right big house. Lots of room. Cute conservatory too. We had the same in our old family home. It also looks like your well away from your neighbours on that side too so double-winner
 
It looks amazing.

That stupid orange paint was on part of my house when i got it. I'd sort that before i even make a cup of tea if I were you, i left it five years.

The place looks great.
Already spoke to painter to come and quote. The living room is mint green! Terrible colours on every damn wall. I spent a hundred euro on sample pots of various shades so I can pick the right ones for the light in each room.

Be sure to check the paint discussion on the other thread so you can impress him with our collective knowledge and anecdotal opinions!
