I start this year with a new job, a new(ish) car, a new house (well, built in 1880) and I hope to embark on the "right" relationship to round out this sober dude's world....
Checking in on all you folks, glad to hear a lot of you are doing well. Happy New Year!

2741 days is great Icehouse .

I wish there was a way of averaging temperatures. Admittedly it is summer here but more than +40 C and high humidity is not fun.

2429. Looks like our weather is pretty standard for the time of year. Austria is a nightmare though (crazy snow) and Italy has incredible rain storms.


Nothing spectacular here, but had to laugh finding out our parrot loves ... me playing piano. He accidentally flew into the room, perched on top of the piano, I started playing, and he didn't move for 20 minutes - which is 19.5 minutes longer than usual. Like dogs do he sometimes tilted his head showing deep interest.



I usually keep him out of there as you really don't want bird poop inside your piano, but he behaved (this time ). I also thought the noise would scare him (a piano close by makes quite a bit of a racket!) but it truly seems like very few things can phase him.


Not even our cat...

Default Help and advice needed - do I have alcoholic neuropathy?

Hello all,
This is my first post on here. I am 35 and have been a fairly heavy drinker for 10 years with 2 periods of 2 years off so 6 years ish of 60ish weekly units sometimes more some weeks less. For 4 months now every morning and sometimes in the night I awake with numb third and forth fingers. I have no symptoms during the day. I had bloods by the doctor all fine apart from very low Vit D and slightly high choresterol. I have really cut down on boozing for the last three weeks and have seen some improvement. The doctor said he thinks it may be a trapped nerve and Im booked into the physio in 3 weeks. The night after a heavyish drinking session (maybe 4 glasses of wine) its much worse. Should I stop drinking now? Or do these symptoms not sound like alcoholic neuropathy? I dont think Im an alcoholic and can go days without and can have one of two drinks and am not complused to have more. It is very destressing to me at the moment to think that I wont be able to have a glass of wine with dinner any more. Im now taking Vit d and multivitamins but without much improvement. I still have numb fingers at night! Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks

Hey Muso, welcome here.


It's hard to say; in the best case, it is just a trapped nerve. That is something a specialist can find out.



But... if you feel immediate effect from not drinking for a while, you might want to give drinking a rest for a couple of months, and see if it goes away completely. If you then decide to test the waters again, you will find out soon enough if alcohol was the culprit.


Best advice I can give is to be as honest as possible with yourself, and not get hung up on words like alcoholism. There are almost as many types of alcohol abuse as there are types of people.


To be fully clear: neuropathy can have many causes, and alcohol is just one of them. It's best to read up on all those causes in the neuropathy section, but it sounds like you already suspect it could be linked to alcohol if I'm not mistaken? If so, not drinking for a couple of months will most likely give you a straight answer.

It's warm. It's cold. The heat and AC needed on the same day.

Feeling pretty good...
