    How to break the routine of drinking every night?

    The guy I quoted was talking about those dependent on alcohol aka alcoholics. Nothing can help these guys apart from a complete psychic transformation, brought about by a spiritual awakening. I took Antabuse and never drank with it, I just stopped taking the drug when I wanted to drink. I guess it would work if forced, but forced 'sobriety' doesn't count. I went to a halfway house and met a man who had just got out of jail, 15 years, for murder. the second night he went out drinking, which showed me the seriousness of alcoholism. I drank for another 10 years too, despite knowing what was wrong and desperately wanting to quit.

    I'd say I'm happy 90% of the time. What a sad statistic, did you make that up?

    No it isn't. Most alkies I know didn't quit when using this drug.

    If half of my life was unhappy, I'd do something to change it.

    How Much Do Govt. Schools Get For Foreign Teachers?

    How old are the students? I have put 4 kids through school in Thailand. If a teacher, especially a foreigner, asked them to phone them, I'd have been straight down to the school, or even the police.
  6. I'd suggest get your Citizenship application in immediately. Why waster 5 years getting a PR? It takes 2 + years at the moment, which passes quickly. You need to keep working for 1 year I'd say after making your application until the Ministry of Interior interview. After that, I think you would get away without having to prove that you're working. It's the 3 previous years that are of utmost importance. Just my humble opinion.

    What is the best wine you have ever tasted?

    Probably the biggest drinking country in the world. They use to laugh when talking about herring.

    Days Off The Booze

    Wine bottle stops are for people who can drink normally. Believe it or not, many people can drink and not have a physical craving to keep doing so.

    Don't think I ever heard a joke from Finland, despite living there for a while.

    Cutting down, baby steps

    It's normal to be scared of Thais when you're a newbie. I found it so annoying having to tell them not to put any soda in the Johnny Walker. They must have thought I was an alcohol use disorder sufferer.

    Interesting, they seem to change their mind all the time. I've never found a doctor that can help an alcohol use disorder patient. Fortunately, there are some who admit their uselessness.

    Are you saying that Thais are different to other nationalities? Can't say I've noticed any difference when it comes to drinking habits.
