yecch. I drank that stuff a long time ago, and it did the same thing to me, made me absolutely crazy. I got into trouble, but only when I drank wine. So I stopped the wine.
Quitting drinking is probably tough. I limit mine, and always make sure the time is right, environment good.
And limit it to only high quality material.
About thailand, a best friend of mine married a girl from there about 15 years ago, and they wen't there alot so I learned a bit about it. I'm not as big a fan of their food as I am of TexMex and the Mexican food here in Tejas.
Someday you'll find a guy who loves you like crazy and takes care of you and protects you so you won't have to worry about that stuff and can focus more on the lady like things in life, if you want to be inclined that way.
