Took me twenty years to realise I was bored of drinking every night, so hit it on the head last year
I didn't have a drop for about eight months at which point I thought I was bored livid of being sober, so went to the pub and really enjoyed a couple of pints, then went home. Did this a few times and realised I could drink without guzzling. Great!

What I didn't realise was what I had inadvertently done by having a long break was loose 'the thirst' where you can't stop once you've started. So now I can go to a pub, have a pint or two and leave, with no desire/thirst for any more. I now actually find the prospect of going for a session a turn off.

» What Makes You Cry?

The fox who screams in my garden at three in the morning, every night
The advice on the RSPCA website is quite blunt:

"During the mating season, it may be worth considering the use of ear plugs if the howling disturbs you."

Basically, there's fuck all you can do about it
