    The famous one was before my time; they recently started having festivals there again. Now there are a few - Bestival as well as the IoW festival.

    My parents went to see Jimi Hendrix but decided it was too muddy and went home again instead. Idiots.
    I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

            I'm doing antabuse now so any form of alcohol to pass these lips and I'm in big trouble, including mouthwashes, toothpastes, ect. It's the total lack of sleep that is frustrating.

            I fancy a drink now you ferkkhurr
            Don't give in Sol...I have quite a bit of experience in the whole quitting drinking thing, being a recovering alcoholic (4 1/2 yrs sober).....I did crave sugar for a while there, but it sounds like you have that kind of under control. As far as the sleep thing, it will come, but it may take a while.....your body has to get used to not craving those alcohol metabolites it is used to getting every day! It will slowly but surely get better...I PROMISE YOU!! And you're right, it is a lifestyle change that you must go through, if you ever want to talk about it, I can share my experience, strength and hope with you.......

              True that, but be careful calling your parents idiots......

                Thanks barnyard, 4 1/2 years. Get in mate, that's excellent. Things are going well I'm not craving sugar or anything.
                As you say, things will get better. Thats what I'm pinning my hopes on sleep wise. Thanks for the offer to talk, I will ask if I have any questions, thanks again.

                        You are probably what we Australians refer to as a "wowser".... google it
                        Yes, you might be right Mike - maybe I'm a wowser. In my experience high-functioning alcoholics usually function at a lower level than they think, if you ask those close to them. But this isn't about you and I'm wondering what you're doing on a primal message board. No hard feelings; you are free to be an alcoholic if that's your disease. It's more interesting to hear from those here who are working a day at a time to heal themselves (like me).

                          I was married to a "high functioning alcoholic" He didn't function as highly as he thought he did and we've been divorced for 10 years now.

                          Being able to do your job doesn't mean it's not a problem.

                            MarieD and RitaRose.

                            You's are both right. Ive had a problem for over twenty years. The last nine years my job included driving up and down the country, repairing medical equipment in hospitals and universities. I functioned well for six or seven years then it started to catch up on me.

                            When I felt I was becoming a danger to myself and others I quit my job. I regret quiting, but I regret taking that first drink more than anything.

                            I'm nine days sober tonight, could never of imagined it ten days ago.

                                But you're fortunate that you never had to regret something much worse. You did the right thing.
