confused.gif Li-hing Mui? Despite high-speed internet at the house, never blink.gifheard of it. However, I would like to make my first trip to Hawaii soon. Maybe on my way back from my first ever trip to Tokyo.

One of my best friends had alcoholism so bad he ended up dieing from it :(. He was only 32. The guy always tried solving his problems with another bottle. I swear he'd drink 2 or more cases of bear a day. His first act of the day was to sober up by drinking more. I remember we went shopping one time and he had this large coffee mug on him. I was like "what you drinking?" He replied "this is my beer, I drive better intoxicated" lol...... Funny/scary thing is he was telling the truth.... He had jaundice and was actually in the process of turning his life over to God and quitting alcohol. But it took him so suddenly. I really felt bad for his daughter :(

They sell it on amazon :). The general taste is in the same area (combo of sweet/sour and salty). Very much a vice of mine. I haven't had it in a long time though. I really enjoy the Li Hing Mui drops (candy). The powder alone is also quite good but I'd say an acquired taste. It also goes really well on watermelon candy :).

You know what song has a tendency to sneak up on me?  Ave Maria.  It tends to not get to me when I want to hear it.  But it rocks my world when it just comes on all of a sudden.

You must be in the mood for it. It's funny how much we can appreciate certain types of music depending on our state of mind :).

Sorry to hear that. frown.gif

I had a big wake-up call at the age of 36.....12 days in hospital, gave the family quite the scare. I got all the physical detoxing out of the way in those 12 days, and since then I haven't drank, or smoked. No meetings, no "higher power", no 12 steps....all the incentive I needed was those 12 days. I put my foot down, everyone wanted me to go to the meetings, and I said in as strong a way as I could without profanity that there was no way in hell I would go to them. And here I sit, years later....even work at a bar/restaurant...lol.

Hey guys, has anyone here heard anything about a transportable amp sold by Fujiyaavic called the Wagnus? Rudi created a thread about it and he seems pretty high on life over it.

I'm glad you were able to overcome it. An addiction can be so hard to to break and can be devastating on both the person/family & friends. I'm not a fan of drinking but I can do it in moderation. Never acquired the taste though. Always tastes yucky to me. Well the same goes for smoking anyways. regular_smile%20.gif

That's the first I've heard of it. Gotta love Rudi. No way I could keep up with him though. :)

Yeah I like Rudi too. The guy has some sweet gear and has to be the friendliest person I've ever met online. Talk about well grounded and polite. I'm gonna message AnakChan, considering he's in Japan and has had dealings with Fujiyaavic maybe he's had a chance to hear this amp or at least know something more about it.

I gave up when I was 25.

Never been drunk.  Hated beer, yet liked horehound.

Used to drink wine on special occasions.

Loved Tia maria, Irish Mist. Drambui, etc.... and especially Benedictine.

 

I found I was drinking more as time went by.

 

I lived around drunks, some would borrow metho so that they could drink it.

 

I worked with a fellow who died of cirrhosis of the liver.

 

I worked with someone who died in a hotel room from alcoholism.

 

I found I could do without it.

post #14261 of 21396

Yep he died of liver cirrhosis. Very sad and painful way to die.

It's always inspiring to see people find their inner strength and will and stick to something. Good for you, Achmed!

 

I personally can't stand the taste of alcohol, either. I believe I might be a supertaster, in fact. Alcohol is incredibly bitter to me, and I can't imagine that anybody would drink anything alcoholic if it tasted as strongly bitter to them as it does to me.

 

On the plus side, I'll never become an alcoholic.cool.gif

Shouldn't a distinctly skeletonoid figure such as yourself find this attractive?

 

(wink, he teed you right up for this one!)
