    Stopping drinking

    ppp all you need is willpower and the desire to give it up all the daydreaming in the world or trying some other drink etc is covering over the problem dont kid yourself if you want to stop you will if you faff around there is no point all you are doing is kidding yourself you can still be sociable with a soft drink in your hand

    Vegan in the family

    British shooting this has been a very interesting topic and after reading all the posts I must say there are quite a few selfish members on pw with many varied ideas on what to do regardless of what you decide to do with the vegan and your sister I personally wish you and your Mrs to be all the best for the future I hope you will both be happy and healthy Rob

    no its not track days are fun but safe unless you overcook it racing for a living is completely different and you have to have a different mindset i had children when i raced and most of my main competitors had children and you do not ever believe they will grow up alone if you did you wouldnt race

    wasabi i can see where you are coming from but unless you have raced yourself you will never know the feeling that you get and what drives you to keep trying to be the best its not just motorcycling every winning sportsman will put the sport first and themselves and there family last you always know the risks you take but put them away always thinking it will never happen to you you are not forced to race and as with any other sport that has danger you can not just take part if you have no dependants that statement is just daft
