A neophyte shottist's exploration and exercise.... Read by dozens daily
Sunday, October 2, 2016
I stopped drinking for a month last January. I had read in some Brit
news site that to quit for one month does wonderful long lasting help
for all sorts of health areas. Improves your cholesterol, your blood
sugar, you liver numbers, your blood pressure. And my annual physical
is in February, so...
Plus I wanted to see if I could.
Not drink. Because a week hasn't gone by since my teens when I hadn't
drank some thing alcoholic. Often a lotta something. Maybe I had a
problem? So, if I can't quit for a month I'd know, "Yup, got a serious
problem over here!" But it was easy. Much easier than smoking for
example. MUCH easier.
And I didn't want it to be a
problem. I love beer. I was a Head Brewer for a LIVING through much of
the 90s. If it paid better I'd still be, maybe. Beer is wonderful. I
didn't want it to be an enemy and was so happy it was not.
So what did the Doc and lab results tell me last February? What was the great benefits realized? What were the side effects?
Very little. Them Brit health folks lie. Nothing budged. The only impact was weight loss, and nothing budged. It bound me up like Dick's Hatband. Losing a few ell-bees was nice, though. For that alone, it was worth it.
So worth it I decided to not drink in September too. But THIS time I invested in fruit juices with added fiber. Boy, howdy! That helped ease things a bit.
That was September. This is October, of course. So by the time this publishes I will be hungover. Probably.
"You never select a shotgun as your primary anti-zombie firearm. It's great for onesy twosey, but zombies travel in hordes. The reload time is onerous, and the ammo, while effective, is heavy and bulky and short ranged."
Big Mistake for Her
If Ginsberg had let Scalia put the words "strict scrutiny" in Heller and Hillary said "Gun control is just not going to be a priority for my administration," Hillary would have been elected President.
