Backwoodsman BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2484* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 18 Jul 21


”In many ways It's quite handy I gave up drinking for health…. reasons two and a half years ago..”

I gave up almost sixteen years ago, on the advice of my hepatobiliary consultant (to quote his exact words, “Alcohol is a pancreas-killer”). I hardly ever miss it - the only times I do are when we go to Crete on holiday, and when we’re cooking our Christmas dinner.

I wasn’t a boozer, but I enjoyed a few pints on a Friday night at our folk club, and a nice dram or tot two or three nights a week at home. All done now, but I’ve lived to tell the tale - my wife’s friend, who had the same health problems as me, and who ignored the warnings about alcohol, died two years ago at the age of 47 from pancreas/liver failure. Too young. Too sad.
