Yes it's Sebastian and I agree M_G that does look an intense and, I should imagine at times, an uncomfortable read as well.

Any comments by the better informed on the validity of this statement?

'Combat is such an adrenaline rush,’ he says. 'I’m worried I’ll be looking for that when I get home and if I can’t find it, I’ll just start drinking and getting in trouble. People back home think we drink because of the bad stuff, but that’s not true… we drink because we miss the good stuff.’

12 months in theatre is too long and the mind becomes used to exceptionally high levels of risk and adrenalin. It is the craving for adrenalin that causes many to do things to excess, not just drinking but general risk taking including gambling, dangerous driving, high-risk sports as well as illegal activity. The body craves the stimuli that create adrenalin rushes and the highs they can produce.
