Sliding Back into Alcohol Dependency

Posted on February 3, 2021

One of the things that I have found to be a test of my resilience during the pandemic is alcohol dependency. Before last spring, I was barely drinking and not touching a drop in the week. It seemed that I had lost any dependency and broken all the habits of an adult lifetime. I was feeling cleaner for it too. Breaking these habits had come from watching a documentary by Adrian Charles called ‘Drinkers Like Me’. It turned out I was a ...

Vaccines, Immunity and Viruses!

Posted on May 11, 2020

I have never been much use at science and maths. I would sit there in the class and some boring bloke would droll on about numbers and letters as I got lost in a distant haze. I could do basic maths (arithmetic) quite well, but chemistry, physics and biology were alien to me. On the odd occasion I could just about follow it, then by the next lesson it would be gone. This meant I fell further back as others pushed on. My dad (a nuclear scient...
