The Drunk Diary Summary
The Units I consumed in January were : 375.14.
That's a weekly average of : 84.68
That's a Daily Average of 13.40.
That's over three times the daily recommended limits for the intake of alcohol.
I am not dead.
I am not searching around for a new liver.
Or my dignity.
Why did I do this for a second year? Well, last year I did it because I was genuinely interested in how many units I was taking in as a bar manager. I knew it was high but really didn't have the first clue!
This year I was still interested to see how many units, less so that the first year, I was more interested in whether or not a social experiment on myself would work. It just might have.
You see you a while now I've been realising that I'm not as young as I once was, my body can't take the stupid amounts of alcohol that it was once able to and I have found myself wanting to have days off the grog. Is this possibly because I'm drinking more this year than I was last year, almost certainly. After all last years units total was 272.55.
My main thought on this year is that it is so easy to rack up the units that you do have to be really careful, I can honestly say I was drunk maybe four times last month if not then three. My lifestyle must change, and it will, eventually.
Here's another thought though, I work in a bar. A great bar with great beers. Beers which should be enjoyed for what they are *whispers* craft beer. Not to be chugged, not to be guzzled but to be savoured. Anyone can get pissed, only the damned can feel bliss. Temptation is a cruel mistress.
