Jamie - I know how you felt.
I was given some christmas cake of all things - but it was full of brandy. I nearly choked when I tasted it and spent the next 5 mins spitting it into tissue to avoid swallowing it.
I dont think I thought it would do me much damage - it was the fact that I hadnt had a drop of alcohol for a couple of years that got to me - and I felt that this would have broken it if I swallowed it.
So I didnt!!
How are you doing with the UKs NHS?
