Not sure what you're trying to say. Please be blunt.

IPCC models
Based on coupled Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Models from 2001, the THC tends to weaken somewhat rather than stop, and the warming effects outweigh the cooling, even over Europe.[35] In the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report, it was reported that it is very unlikely that the AMOC will undergo a rapid transition (high confidence).[36][citation needed]

there is no point ... miles is high.

Apparently drugs do that to you. I don't know from personal experience, so you'd have to check with mothra if you want that confirmed. :c

No drugs involved: I saw that gif and left my chair for a few hours... I gave up drinking two months ago(11 weeks tomorrow to be exact :scare ) so I think that's made me a bit 'silly' :WTF


Don't go changing, Miles.

Excellent choice, I drink grog once or twice a year when meeting up with muso friends at festivals and the difference in health etc is quite amazing. Takes me a week to get over the couple of drinks I have and get pissed real quick so have to lie down early. Make a living from selling grog, my friends don't understand how I can sell it, yet rarely drink and always say it is very bad for you. Just tell them, money money money. The initial high is quite pleasant, much prefer a bit of biscuit if I need to get out of it. Don't even have a drink on Anzac or Long Tan day, just go to the dawn service and come home.

Yeh, I feel quite different. I'm getting used to it. I can actually see a future without daily alcohol.

Your future will look brighter and brighter is you stay off it, don't know how long you've been drinking, after a year without it, you will really notice they changes in you. At one stage in my life, there wouldn't be a day wasn't pissed and stoned by the end of it, like lots of others, thought it was self medication to get sleep and drown the dreams. Then got diagnosed with PTSD from my active service days and from there, was able to get my head in order, stop drinking and smoking dope. Life's been a breeze since then and really enjoy it, just decided one day had enough grog and stopped. Like many others, thought getting through the day without my hit, would be really hard, but it's not. Once you have really decided, it's easy to do. Best of luck with it and hope it works for you.

Well done you ... but it surprises me that someone with your insight would refer to substance abusers as "wastes of space".

Bit cavalier, don't you think?

Yeh, well I was in Hollywood Hospital and there was Vietnam vets there... I don't have problems with bad memories like they have so I can't comment on that sort of thing. There was a few cops there as well.

I needed to go : the decision to quit by myself wasn't working so, those were doctors orders. I think he's just as surprised as I am but really I was getting bored of it.

We all have our gremlins to deal with, the first step is accepting we have them, so you've done well. When you get bored with your escape, as you did, it shows you're not addicted, but using it to cover up the gremlins that bothers us. You need to find out what they are, accept them and then it gets easier every day to handle, until it no longer effects you. We need answers to our problems and in reality, they can only come from us, no amount of psychiatric or psychological methods can do it for us. It's our mind and there is no one else in it, so we have to find the gremlins, accept they exist and then they will start to go away. Once you are aware of the problems nature, combating it is easy.

Only saying this as been down that track many moons ago and there was a time when all around me suffered from my refusal to accept the reality of my mind, crazy from avoiding what I'd gone through in my life and active service, then lashing out at everyone at times. Chance meetings with some I'd served with helped me to accept, even though no one around me did. Solved the other gremlin by actually making an in depth study of it and found the answers within.

So our internal climate has to change, which will promote warming within.
