The drinking game that killed Tom Back when I lived with my sister I barely managed to drink once a month, and health wise, I was living a good life. Unfortunately, my sister decided to get engaged and her fiance was all “its weird that we live with your hermit sister” and “you two have been co-dependent for years its unhealthy and it’s time to stop”. When I moved in with my friends at the beginning of the year I was immediately tossed in to a long strict lock down.

This wouldn’t have been too big a problem for a normal kid, but I also refused to drink water. A strangely pervasive problem in our family that started young (my brother was weaned off breast milk using chocolate Breaka) and lived into adulthood.
Is The Problem The Parents or the Kid?

Growing up I started to realise my Dad’s life lessons were somewhat unorthodox and below are some of my favourite quotes.
