      Hot flushes! Acidic sweating hangovers!
      Acid reflux! One of the main problems!
      Snoring and sleep apnoea!
      How could I forget these little pleasures?
      How about high blood pressure? Anyone? I'm almost off medication for good now.

      And those bikini clad providores of doom? Maybe their bottles should carry a few warnings.....drink responsibly or wake up looking like this:

      Yesterday I did not drink. Today I know I will not drink... Tomorrow can go look after itself for now, I'll deal with that after midnight! ODAAT (One day at a time)

      Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. but it is, perhaps, nearing the end of the beginning of my fight back with Al (apologies to Sir Winston Churchill)

      Great thread bj! I went through pretty much what others have said - very scary- it just slowly builds up and it’s so hard to stop no matter what the symptoms are.
      The psychological aspects are horrible as well.

      Quite astounding how much we will put up with, then 'fix' ourselves with a hair of the dog. And on. And on.
