not fratty enough yet but we're moving in the right direction certainly
This is it. I think of myself as quite a lightweight but sometimes you look back and think "I've drank at least one beer every hour we've been on it, and we've been on it for three days" - and you start to question yourself "is it really Sunday already?" and so on. For myself, I really don't know, but there was a time when I'd read about Oliver Reed or Merv the Swerve drinking 50 pints in one session and I assumed that they wwre total lies... but now I don't think that at all, once these champions are in the zone anything is possible.Thirst triggered, tough question
Sessions you’re often into mixed drinks, enabling company and memory damage. The best and worst of humanity exists here. I miss it
Pub crawl = 10 + Saturday, different from a school night or Friday where you can hit and run 4-6-8 quickly
football lads on the tear (depending on fixture danger level) = easy away day like Southampton double figures + gak + spirits + chlamydia
teenage worst - NYE 85 or 86 totally wired on putty about 12/15 pints deep, thirst cranked up to whiskeys, sambucas, wine, rum, idiotically downed a pint of gin or mixed spirits (can’t remember and lost count) in one as a dare. Monstrous hangover, monstrous, life shortening should’ve gone to A&E
weekenders (Thurs lads - Tuesday), descending in to the pit and beyond - e’s, acid, coke, 25+ red and white cans over 36 hours on site, pushing past into wine gurn and post-party pub takeover, into a fourth day at a mate’s everything inverts wrong due to freebasing and clutching at brandy bottles dribbling incoherently. Sleep for 30hours. Soothe hangover with Valium, soothe Valium with heroin. Repeat til Thursday
Hard to separate poisons, they merge habitually
Werbeniuk was noted for the copious amounts of alcohol he consumed before and during matches – at least six pints before a match and then one pint for each frame. In total, he drank between 40 and 50 pints of lager per day. Doctors advised Werbeniuk to drink alcohol to counteract a familial benign essential tremor. Later in his career he also took propranolol, a beta blocker, to cope with the effects of his alcohol consumption on his heart.
Werbenuik was reported to have successfully claimed the cost of 6 pints of lager before every match as a tax deductible expense.
Some of Werbeniuk's alleged feats of drinking include: 76 cans of lager during a game with John Spencer in Australia in the 1970s; 43 pints of lager in a snooker match/drinking contest against Scotsman Eddie Sinclair in which, after Sinclair had passed out following his 42nd pint, Werbeniuk was reported to say "I'm away to the bar now for a proper drink"; 28 pints of lager and 16 whiskies over the course of 11 frames during a match against Nigel Bond, in January 1990 – after which Werbeniuk then consumed an entire bottle of Scotch to "drown his sorrows" after losing the match.
You need something to keep you upright yeah. I guess that if someone was dumb enough to organise some sort of official drinking contest or, worse, league, then uppers such as amphetamine or cocaine would rightly be considered the worst (in that they helped you cheat best) form of cheating. The steroids of the competitive drinking world.You can drink a lot if you also eat at some point in the middle, also if you're tripping. You can drink masses on a trip and feel like it hasn't touched you.
Christian Bale's notorious for doing this,Imagine what you would feel like after 50 (unaided) pints of lager. Just the volume, the gas etc it really disgusts me. One thing I really feel uncomfortable with is fucking with your body like that. Like that film Supersize Me where, in the name of art, he ate nothing but McDonald's for a month.
Or, has anyone seen that programme called It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? Thete is a bit where one of the main guys gets fatter and fatter, and then later on he loses the weight I think. I assumed that he got fat so they got done mileage out if it... but I read about it and it turns out the actor (who is also one of the writers) came up with the idea "how about i get really disgustingly fat?" and then he did it, just to get a storyline on a mildly amusing sitcom. It's disgusting, one of the few things that really makes me feel uncomfortably queasy to think about.
Perhaps I am just very shallow. I am unable to separate the idea of my body and myself. When I am overweight (which happens quite often) I feel horrible in myself, uncomfortable and wrong. During the less common moments when I feel more comfortable in my body I would never willingly swap it for the worse version... although I guess I obviously would cos that's the deal I'm making every time I massively overindulge.Christian Bale's notorious for doing this,
This breath book says its so one can have a rest now and thenWhen you think about it, why do you need two nostrils anyhow? People just bodyshamed her really, if she had lost an arm or leg I doubt people would have taken the piss so much (unless it was Heather Mills).
