So, you want a sugarly caffeine drink, but without the sugar or the caffeine?

Am I missing something?


Not much sugar for me

I drink sugar free cokes etc, sugar free juice. Prefer the taste.

I have 2 strong coffes a day with a bit of sugar in.

maybe 2 cups of tea a week,

plus I have at least 2 pints of semi skimmed milk a day.
I tend to have one coffee a day, but only if I'm at home, and a gazillion cups of tea. And gallons of tap water.

Pop is a treat, but if its a cola, it has to be real coke, full fat.

1985 when we barely had any TV channels and video machines had wired remote controls I used to finish work between night and 1am, so no tv worth watching, we hired 2/3 videos a night and drunk a lot.

I used to work my way through a bottle of Bicardi most nights or a bottle of Purnod to make Red Witches, my partner, she supped 4 Heinikens & a 1.5 litre bottle of Lambrusco every night.

In all fairness these days I dont drink at all, but if I had company and in the right mood I would enjoy a drink or 5.

Iím surprised your liver is still working. 😎

I never suffered.  Never got drunk, We worked hard and just used it as a way to chill.  It was a normal night for us for about 3 and half years.

We also made a point of going out for a meal once a week as all we did was prepare food for others most of the week.

My old man was in the Royal Navy in the early part of his career, long before he met mum.  So rum was a way of life in my childhood...

...until one evening, dad and I were at home alone together, so decided to go on a voyage with Capt Morgan. Hell, what a voyage that was.  I reckon we circumnavigated the world several times, and the sea must have been rough.


I might have fallen asleep in my O Level exam the next morning  :-[.  Boy did I feel rough.


Can't face the stuff since then.  Gay, I know.

Tequila.

I got paralytic on the stuff sometime in the 1990's in Hong Kong, and spent the next two days with my head in a bucket!  :'(

25 odd years on, just the smell of the stuff makes me heave!  :(

Tequila and Diamond White slammers were the drink of choice at Uni on the evenings when it gets to about 10 PM and you think "I've got some catching-up to do here". A process which took about 30 seconds following a shot of that.. If it didn't bounce. :-X

The third black sambuca is pretty consistent in that regard. The fourth is ALWAYS a bad idea :D

That reminds me of my 16th (or ws it 15th, or 14th?) birthday, we flew out to Crete for a family holiday, and that evening I got thoroughly wrecked on Ouzo.  I know I never made it back to our accommodation, but nothing else for about 3 days - every time I came round again, I needed fluids, and after a swig of water, I was ratarsed again.  I gave up alcohol for 2 or 3 years after that


Wasn't the most memorable holiday. The accommodation was truly awful. We had our cameras, valuables and a load of cash nicked. We wrote off a car. We wrote off 2 scooters.

I'd say that was very memorable.

I can't drink more than a glass of white wine, as it starts to taste like battery acid. I won't have the first glass. It's because I had far too much at a wine tasting when I was 12. I'll have a couple of glasses of red with dinner, but have no interest in it.


I'm a beer drinker, although there are some I won't touch; Goachers tastes like yesterday's washing up water strained through socks that have been in wellies for a couple of days.


Tea gives me indigestion so I don't drink it.


I like coffee, but caffeine doesn't have any noticeable effect on me.

I have gone the other way, used to like my coffe milky, Now I like it strong, 2 sppons coffe (3/4 of a spoon of sugar) and a splash of milk. :y

Nescafe Gold is the current brand in use but ready for a change as I feel thier blend has changed :-\

Not touched alcohol in more than 40yrs now.Don't like fizzy pop of any kind.Drink gallons of black[am I allowed to call it that?] coffee per day[not stopped me sleeping at all] other than that I like a glass of Shloer with white grape and elderflower being favourite.
