    Aye know a lad that used to crush and snort subutext for same reason. Same lad would go out on his daily shoplifting with foil, brown & matches plugged up his arse in case he got caught that day, as much as you downplay your experience it could have been a lot worse and longer, you've done well man

    This thread has gone from ridiculous to fantastic.

    My grandpa fought in the Pacific in WWII and came back with some issues and turned to booze. He was an alcoholic for a long time, but ended up kicking the habit when my dad was a teenager. He became pretty high up in the management of AA, but battles depression his whole life and eventually killed himself when I was 8 or 9.

    I've always liked to have a few drinks, but his story has always been in the back of my mind.

    You still dabble in anything?
    Nah, mate. Uppers on occasion, but only a few times a year now if that even. Smoke and drink sometimes. Once a week or so.

    No, it's purely a cultural thing, im sure the Japanese and German troops saw as many horrors as the allied troops did but don't think they have anything like the problem with especially alcohol.

    I've had a house here in Spain for 17/18 years and lived here. About12 years now and apart from one particular guy I could count on my one hand how many heavily drunk Spanish people I've seen.
    For them it's social, something to do while out or meeting up but not the reason for being there , it's not unusual to be sitting in a cafe/ bar and maybe 3 or 4 young lads come in and order beers and tapas, sit maybe an hour talking and eating then leave with all their glasses still half full!

    We have two grandkids and have had the baptism parties and birthday parties every year, use the same restaurant, it's normal here for an "open" bar , the waiters come round bringing tapas and replenishing drinks.
    The Spanish sit happily with a couple of drinks over the 3/4/5 hours while every occasion we've had British friends on their knees in the toilets being sick and other falling about and fighting


    The whole attitude to drinking is completely different, the Spanish are filling their faces with tapas all day and our side are doing the same with booze, sort of balance each other out

    This is true. In a football sense its also why we cant produce quality players in a higher number.

    How often are sides good at youth level and then hit that age. Party age.

    So many quality and i mean really quality young players hit the booze and that was it.

    Yeh, last night took g/ kids park and dozens of kids there playing football, must have been about 6 or 7 balls all being played with at same time.
    But all the parents milling round with sandwiches and juices and joining in whereas in U.K.
    Most the parents would probably be out or at home drinking on a Saturday night.

    People dont realise the dangers of bravado here. Everycunt acting invincible. Life doesnt give a fuck who u think u are.

    I mind i was abroad in France when i done coaching for a wee bit. Roasting day and there was this huge hill. Seen this frail 70 odd year old guy. I thought fuck he is going to die going up that hill.

    He got his bike and cycles up like cutting through butter. Then i thought about 30 year olds here who literally couldnt do that. Shocking.

    See, I don’t think this is a coincidence and I can only go with my experience, out my way its full of these ex-Brits thats fought in Argentina, Ireland, Gibralter, Iraq etc but the only place you see them is in there Boozers. All of them walk the same style, 70s 80s haircut, grim looking, serial killer stance, just all round looking terrrorist scum. Hate the bastards, but their is no doubt these sort of people are in a state of dehumanisation due to their enviroment and its became cultural. Drinking, consuming the media, read the Sun, work, back to drinking, consuming the media etc a complete sterile lifestyle… Manufactuered to the highest level. No Independent thought just pure British Unionism by design and their comfort is trying to drink away PTSD and other effects.
    Yeah, PTSD is a real thing. The suicide rate for soldiers in the U.S. is more than double the rest of the population.

    Seems similar with U.K. Forces

    More British soldiers and veterans took their own lives in 2012 than died fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan over the same period.
    BBC Panorama learned that 21 serving soldiers killed themselves last year, along with 29 veterans.
    The Afghanistan death toll was 44, of whom 40 died in action.
    Some of the soldiers' families say the men did not get enough support. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said every suicide was a "tragedy".
    The Panorama programme obtained the figure of 21 through a Freedom of Information request to the MoD.
    The MoD said that rates of suicide and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) within the serving military were lower than comparative rates in the civilian population.
    Seven serving soldiers have been confirmed as having killed themselves last year, and inquests are pending for a further 14 deaths where suicide is suspected.
    The British government, unlike its American counterpart, does not record the suicide rate among ex-soldiers.
    Love to know the suicide figures for the countries being attacking and civilian areas that were carpet bombed for weeks at a time.

    Watch Restrepo and Korengal and you will understand PTSD. Totally changed my views on military those documentaries. Really drives home just how much they are nothing but mere pawns.

    My uncles mates told me his granda was in ww2. Caught and tortured by japs.

    Later in life he had delusions the japs were coming to get him. He set up a trap and electrocuted the postman lol

    I think he became fine after some help but japs musta done a good job on him.

    I have no sympathy for people who carry out illegal wars. They deserve everything they get. I pity seeing young Brits getting flown back in a Apron coffin. Thats not even a life thats a fucking helmet.
    So Connolly deserved to die?

    Think about what you are saying for a minute.

    Young men who have been brought up a certain way are sent off to war before they even have a chance to form their own world view. Even at your age I guarantee your politics will be completely different in five years.

    Watch the documentaries.
