    How to break the routine of drinking every night?

    Thanks, but I won't go the drug route just yet. ?
  3. I've gone through a number of bouts of depression over the past 20 years, but have never gone to get it diagnosed or treated. I just kept going and most of the time it got better. I'm currently going through a bad patch that kind of came out of the blue, there have been times lately where the only thing stopping me from deciding to.... end things, are my 2 sons that need me. It's time to organize getting it treated. I'm mainly in Silom area of Bangkok 90% of the time, and around 10% of the time in Phuket. TIA for any information on I presume the first part - diagnosis.

    How to break the routine of drinking every night?

    I believe boredom is a lot to do with it. Boredom and routine. I finish working online at around 8:00-8:30pm. We live in a very big Thai neighborhood that has absolutely nothing in but houses. In an area that has nothing in it but neighborhoods of houses. Exercing after that would keep me up at night. So it is onto the sofa to watch TV, and pour a drink so my hands have something to do. I'm pretty active in the day time and typically go for long walks every day to think about things.

    How to break the routine of drinking every night?

    For me: I'm not enjoying it like I used to. It's starting to effect my private/family life to a small degree. I'm 40 and don't want to be doing it until I'm 60. Don't want to become dependent on it.
  6. Over the last year or two I've gotten into the routine of drinking every night. It started because I could do it, and enjoyed it. Now I don't enjoy it as much, but it's what I do. Typically 4-6 big beers, or 1/5-1/4 liter of whiskey, or a bottle of wine over the course of the night. It's difficult to stop and not do it. Not sure if an alcoholic or not (could be routine rather than alcohol dependence) What tips are there to help me stop and go back to once or twice a week? It would be better for my life and my family's life.

    Bowl of water with salt. 25 degrees. Still the same. Felt the dryness as soon as entering the room. A/C was on maybe an hour before. Will look at the dehumidifier things. Thanks.

    So then, to get back to the topic if okay. Humidifiers. Is anybody using one? What model did you get? Have you noticed a difference? Thanks

    I will look into the humidifier option. Can anybody advise or recommend what one should be looking for in one? Thanks.

    I don't believe that's the case. It's usually set to 23/24, which is what I've been setting A/C's to in Thailand for around a decade.
