George wants all to know: Day 4, no alcohol

UPDATED: See Below

I am posting this for our friend George who volunteer at Barbados Free Press to approve comments and delete spam.

George want his friends to know that this is “Day Four” and he would appreciate not being offered a drink when you see him.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE CLIVERTON.

Thank you.

Update #1: December 23, 2009 (by Cliverton)

Hello Shona and all. I promise I won’t be offering George a drink, and I’ll be going easier myself.

Meanwhile, George found this online…

The following is a list of mild to moderate physical and psychological alcohol detox effects that typically occur within 6 to 48 hours after the last alcoholic drink has been consumed:

Easily excited, irritability
Clammy skin
Rapid emotional changes
Looking pale, without color
Insomnia, sleeping difficulties
Difficulty thinking clearly
Nausea
Involuntary, abnormal movements of the eyelids
Rapid heart rate
Headaches (especially those that pulsate)
Feeling nervous or jumpy
Eyes or pupils different size (enlarged, dilated pupils)
Anxiety
Sweating (especially on the face or the palms of the hands)
Fatigue
Tremor of the hands
Nightmares
Vomiting
Abnormal movements
Depression
Loss of appetite

George couldn’t sleep last night but is otherwise ok. He says he’s going to keep updating everybody as an incentive to himself to remain “dry.” He’s still coming to the bash but he says he’ll need our help to maintain his determination. He says he’ll tell his cold turkey story as it progresses if readers are interested.

Who knows… this might moderate the drinking of the BFP gang in the long run.

Not that I want that to happen right now!  🙂
