Hi Folks, Good forum you have going here, just discovered it, wasted much of my afternoon reading it. Anyway, I was (briefly) in the Scots Guards when I was 17, DAOR'ed after 6 weeks though. I was a daft, very young 17 year old, and I know I'm not the same guy now, but my past experience in the army, and my inability to find anything I enjoy in civvy street, that all makes me wonder whether I'm not just wasting my time again. I'm hoping to join the Intelligence Corps as an OPMI, am completely and utterly demoralised by civvy life, and have even managed to stick to my training routine for more than a week. I'm 25 now, and I really hope this is it for me. I've always wanted to serve, my whole nature is well suited to army life. At the end of the day though guys, I'm shitting myself at the prospect of it all, and even more of f*cking up again. Seems stupid to say this, but even the fact I have stuck to my training, even for a week, seems to indicate some change in myself. I know its going to be hard work, and phase 1 is going to be just as hard and trying as it was last time, but I really hope I can knuckle down and block out the bad sh*t for 14 weeks. So, in summary, it appears I have asked no questions. I am interested to clarify when you can have a pint or two in training? After Week 6, I presume. And yeah, I know, its a daft, insignificant question, that will have no bearing on my army career, but I do like a cold one now and then. Cheers folks, any words of encouragement or advice would be welcome, banter will be laughed at, and insults taken with a pinch.
