Strange you should say that. Was walking down Soi Buakhow about 18.00 hrs. last evening and couldn't help feeling how much one misses out on the auld banter scene since I gave up the booze 18 yrs. ago....not being a "drinker" can be a definite disadvantage when it comes to the socialising scene.....in any part of the world...but particularly in Thailand for some reason methinks (maybe because of the gals).

   Don't get me wrong...if I hadn't given it up I wouldn't be around today to even notice this. Have had a life beyond my wildest dreams since the day my recovery started.

I also quit drinking for almost six years, but I still frequented the bars to chat with my friends.....play with the bar girls.....at first it was difficult for them as well as me,,,,,,,,some of my 'friends' just stopped coming around because I would go out and only drink soda water, of Kratingdang..........but even the most hard core drunks saw the advantage of a Thai speaking sober person in their midst.  I now have a beer or two a most nights a week, don't miss the bar life at all.   Oh, I am not a twelve stepper, couldn't get past the 3rd or 4th step, forget which, chucked it all in the garbage, just did it on my own.

That sounds like Jimmy's bar. Most days if you go there you will end up having to talk to yourself.

Non drinkers are just like vegans. They spend far too much time having a go at people for doing what they see as wrong. Why not just give it a rest and let people live their lives how they want?

 

 

I suppose you could have a hard drinking vegan?

 

 

 

Not sure what they would make of it.

What would they eat on the stagger home? Don't get many vegan kebabs around.

if you're around Big-C sort of 12-ish today drop in to London Steak.   You'll probably find me in there for a coffee and read.   Happy to meet and chat as the book will still be there tomorrow.   (And, no, I don't own / run / finance the place.)  

Hi Mr Mo
I PM'd you

Buriram has a non denominational Christian Church with services at 10am most Sunday's near the Buriram Airport. Lynn Thompson is the "pastor" He is also an active member of the Buriram Golf Society. This photo is of images last Sunday December 23 where expats and spouses enjoyed good company in a Buriram Village. Lynn and his wife put out quite a spread and treat the village children very well. This Buriram Satuk Christian Church is on google maps and has a facebook page. It is not quite the same as other Churches in Buriram.
