Sunday Musings #145

Alcohol kills brain cells slowly, but that never bothered me because I’m not in a hurry.

– Unknown


Actually I think that a little of what you fancy, in moderation, does you more good than harm.

As to killing brain cells, the general anaesthetic I had over 10 years ago destroyed more of my brain than all of the vodka I’ve drunk my entire life!

I was stupid for at least a year; couldn’t remember things; couldn’t solve my crosswords; and was exhausted all the time.

So the next time I need an operation, to do less harm, I think I’ll ask them to knock me out the old fashioned way, with a bottle of vodka!

    Wonderful quote that had me laughing along with colinandray’s comment!πŸ™‚ I’ve heard many of those stories about anesthesia and think someone should work on your vodka theory.πŸ™‚

    Saw a sign the other day in a local store – “My therapist told me that I have to make some changes in my life … so I did. I switched from white wine to red wine!”

      Many things are bad if over used or abused.
      Pain killers do not work on me and I am allergic to morphine. Sometimes the only alternative to extreme pain is a little alcohol. Not my first choice!

    Tell me about it! My umpteen general anaesthesia has wiped out loads of my memory and you are right in that a lil cognac before bed is a good thing and a lady who lived till 104 yrs old had regime of a lil whisky every night and her mental faculties and eye sight was good!πŸ˜ƒ

      Aw I remember you have had many long ops under anaesthesia. No fun!
      Yeah, I think your genes play a great role in how healthy you are and the rest is not to over indulge – too often! πŸ˜€
