Drinking and Guilt ????

Hope the title makes sense, read on hopefully it does.

When ever I go out drinking with the lads, I wake up the next morning with a strange feeling that I can only describe as guilt, I think ???

I have a good social life and loads of close mates, I have a loving missus that encourages me to see my mates and spend some time with the lads, but whenever I go out I wake up the next morning feeling strange.

I wake up with a hangover feeling like sh!t, thinking why do I do this to myself I feel rough as a badgers ar*e, I spend on average on a night out £80 - £100, Then the next day I think f*uck! what a waste of money im never gonna see that money again, I could of bought new clothes, put it towards my new car fund, took the missus out somewhere nice, put it towards a holiday, or even just saved it for a rainy day.....

Instead I'm left with a really expensive headache, I can't deal with hangovers anymore (must be getting old!) but after a night out it takes me a good 1 - 2 days to recover, and I just think WHY ????? why do I do it, and I know the alcohol has a negative affect on my training too.

I enjoy the night and the laugh I have with the lads most of the time sometimes though if it has been a bad night the feeling the next morning is even worse because I know I have wasted a ton and not even enjoyed myself, but i'm always let with this strange feeling of what I can only describe as guilt.....

Its not as if I go out that often, 2 - 3 times a month if that, and I have never cheated on my lady on a night out with the lads, so its not that, that gives me this strange feeling.

Its starting to make me not want to go out, but like my girl says, I have to have a social life and see my mates, and time apart from each other with friends is helathy, she doesn't want the lads thinking the reason I don't go out so much is because of her and it really isn't.

I used to go out 4 - 5 times a week when I was younger, maybe i've just had enough of it, I don't know....

Does anybody else feel like this the morning after????

Sleep, ****, work, gym, sleep !

    Tried it, it doesn't work you get caught in the atmosphere and all your mates are drinking and it just doesn't work lol

    and £80 - £100 is easily done in a night thats just an average night, birthdays, stag do's etc... that total can easily be doubled

    Mate, I can relate to what you are saying. I've got to the stage were I don't do the nights out on the town with mates anymore. It is as someone else says just growing up. I still have nights with them, but it is usually a card school or a pool/snooker night. I can even make money and if I lose its not a £100. I had the same guilty feeling when I hot the town, a days training gone as I didn't get to bed until 4 am and I 'm settled so I don't even let some dirty lady take advantage of me!. I would spend the night buying rounds in a trendy club and blow a small fortune. In the past you probably never had the same outlays ever month so you are appreciating the value of money aswell.

    Can't you spend time with your friends, in other ways that doesn't involve getting completely drunk and spending loads of money?

    I hardly ever do it anymore - just got fed up with the dreadful hangovers the next day and feeling rubbish.

    To combat the hangovers try drinking vodka only, i can get smashed out of my skull and still get up at a reasonable hour the next day.

    Im bulking now so trying not to drink at all and its hell. I went out with the usual gang of p1ss heads on saturday and didnt drink, well i had 2 vodka and cokes all night, just for the taste really.

    It was absolutely crap but also a REAL eye opener, seeing how people look when their wired has put me off drinking a bit. I think even when i finish bulking and am able to drink as i please, ill still hold back and drink to be sociable and not to get completely wasted. Previously id wake up and think 'what the ...' and then spend the next 5 minutes trying to think what happened last night.

    Its even worse when you check the call log on your phone and see who you have rang at 5am...

    RedHotF, is that you with a new hair style?

    I don't so much feel guilty but feel disapointed in myself and almost feel like I'm on a come down for the next few days if I've had a rubbish night - which can be quite often.

    I've cut down my drinking quite a lot in the past few weeks - no more drinking in the week and only once on the weekends.

    Feel much better about myself but I left it a bit late for my finances to recover

    The drinking mentality in Britain is nuts! I've got mates who will question a man's sexuality if he doesn't drink! If I decide not to drink on a night out it's like I'm letting them down personally. This in turn is met with abuse such as a Wendy, lightweight or even being a weirdo!

    Don't see the point in drinking myself. You spend a lot of money, you may act like an idiot and make a show of yourself, you will probably feel like crap the next day. You can have fun with friends doing other activities.

    If we went out and one my mates said he wasnt drinking then I'd feel let down.

    I wouldnt abuse them but it would put a dampener on my night, until I got too pissed to care.

    No, it totally varies, one month I might go out 3 times, the next month I may go out once in the whole month, I would say I never go out more than 3 times in any one particular month, most months its only once or twice.

    How do you manage to spend £100 !! Sounds like some of your mates are getting a free ride.

    5 pints of stella and the obligatory kebab costs me no more than £15

    Ive thought that and i have no idea where it goes. I know for the champs league final i went the pub on a work night and spend nearly £50 on vodka and coke, and that was all worked out as i couldnt believe it in the morning.

    So for a night out in town, add £10-20 for taxis, probably £10-15 for entry into a few bars or maybe a club and then in my case a vodke will be £2.50 rather than £1.70 in pub. Plus when out i get more p1ssed and also have shots and the occasional vodka and red bull which when you make a double (standard procedure) will start at a fiver each.

    Its a disgrace but 100 bills goes no where anymore!

    LOL i see your point, none of my friends get a free ride we all spend approx the same, 5 pints of stella is a warm up on sat afternoon in the local watchin the footy results come in, then its home food, shower, clothe change and then in to town for the evening session.

    As redman pointed out taxi's, addmission fees, bars charging more for drinks etc.. £100 goes nowehere that is just literally an average night, if its a special occasion, a big night like a birthday or stag do then £100 can easily tun into £180 - £200.

    Given how I feel just lately after a night out, I think things are gona change.

    (None of the above is spent on class A's, its not my thing)
