Re: Breaking the cycle/gaining traction

Hi Will I'm not sure if you've had a look around the other threads on the forum yet. If you do, you will soon see that there are lots of us here who understand the place you are in at the moment. You've managed a whole year sober and you're only 28. That's pretty amazing for a start. I'm 40 and I've...

Re: Cooking: good food tips, links & ingredients

All sound advice FS. I like to cook as a hobby and use alcohol as an ingredient from time to time. But there is one problem. OK, the alcohol evaporates and the finished dish is AF, but there is a point where chef is stood there with an opened bottle in hand :shock: My own solution is to go back to ...

Re: Cooking: good food tips, links & ingredients

advice please - and it's probably here in one of the back pages. I Love sherry trifle. What can I use instead of sherry? I want a bit of a kick, so fruit juice isn't the answer. In the catering trade you can get 'seasoned' alcohol, which means that you reduce the liquid by simmering it until the al...

Re: Late lounge (& other non-UK locations...)

Dai (:-)), I blame Ireland for the rain. It's well known that the climate comes in from the Atlantic, comes to a bit land (Ireland) which causes distruptions, then bit more water then it hits Wales, hence Ireland's the cause of all Welsh rain. Another interesting fact is that most people will eat t...

Re: February General Support and Chat

I know what you mean as well. I started going in pubs with my Dad when I was about 7 yrs old. There's lots of things I like about pubs - the smell even! There is something comforting about the atmosphere, the banter, the characters, the feeling of a port in a storm... I have found an alternative to ...

Re: Cycling!

Can't we go to Denmark? I hear it's nice and flat there! I can do about 5 miles before needing a break, but I quite like walking up the hills which counts as a break really....it seriously knocks me out though. Last bike ride I came home and went upstairs for a 'little nap'...5 hours later my kids w...
