  1. I'm 43 and have been taking the same drugs as you've mentioned for way too long plus some others now and then. My drug use is no doubt a contributing factor for where I find myself now but certainly not the only or maybe even the main reason. My usage is more likely just a trigger for some mental health issues I need to work through. Watching people chew their faces off is OK and actually fun for a while but then I just want to join them so it becomes frustrating after a bit. No way could I do that for 5 days and still have the time of my life!
  2. Sadly I think my time may be up. Firstly, this year's Glastonbury was the best I've had. Everything clicked for me. The weather, the company, the drugs, the music, the nightlife...it all came together and made for the best 5 days I've ever had over the last 20 years of going. I really prepped my body for this year. I've been going long enough to know the effort it takes and physically I had no issue after. However, mentally it was a struggle afterwards. Due to circumstances that I don't really fully understand yet I had some sort of break down last month about 4 weeks after Glastonbury. This wasn't solely down to Glastonbury (or the 5 days in Vegas which I went to a week after coming back from G) more a build up of things over the last year or so. Obviously spending 10 days off my face with hardly any sleep in a 3 week period didn't help. Very long story short is I went to my GP and now I am going through therapy but the result of all this is that I need to start doing things sober and definitely drug free for a while to try and sort myself out. Going out and doing things straight is an eye opener to say the least! So this leads to my problem with going to Glastonbury again. I've always associated Glastonbury with getting spangled and my best times at Glastonbury have always included me being off my tits. I think I'd like to keep my last memory of Glastonbury as my best. I know people will say they've done Glastonbury sober and it's no better or worse just different. I like to think I could do Glastonbury sober I just don't know if I want to try. Some things are just best left alone and at the moment I'm fine with that thought. Way too early to see how my situation will progress but Glastonbury is such a massive part of my life its gonna leave a big hole. I have got the chance to work next years festival which may be an option. I've always fancied working at the festival and it would definitely take away some of my desire to get on it as soon as I walk through the gates. If 2019 does turn out to be my last festival at least I'll know it was a vintage year and I certainly won't be sad about not going again. I've had way too many happy times with great friends to be anything but grateful for the last 20 years of Glastonbury. Onward and upward!

    Brilliant idea but as you've said I wouldn't trust lakota to look after my coat never mind my phone. It should be a top night eats always seems to deliver.
  4. I was too late to see them at Glastonbury massive crowd couldn't get any where near the tent so will hopefully catch them at Boomtown. I thought they looked good on the iplayer.

    Been watching Tomorrowland streams over the weekend that looks like a seriously good festival. Amazing stages/production and a great lineup. Anyone on here been? Very tempted to try for tickets next year.

    My only regret was not seeing lizzo. Watched her set on a plane on my way to vegas earlier and my god she bloody smashed it. Storming performance and a definite headliner in the making.

    Probably my only regret was not getting into Samula. Couldn't drag myself away from the temple and walked past the outside of Samula and could see the waterfall on the way home most mornings. Was there much of a queue to get in? The pics I've seen look amazing.

    2020 Ticket Sale

    Seems that way. Everyone in my local is saying they're definitely trying next year it looked amazing on the telly and it's the 50th anniversary blah blah blah. When it comes to T day most of those people will forget or not have registered I hope.

    2020 Ticket Sale

    My wife was about to book a break for that weekend last night and I just stopped her in time. When I told her it was T day she rolled her eyes and said 'you've just got back from Glastonbury now we have to rearrange a holiday because of bloody ticket day!' She's learning.

    Had this exact scenario last couple of times I've been. When theres only 2 of you if your not completely in sync it can be a bit awkward. That's why we decided to camp with another group of 6 mates (although I only knew 2 of the group properly) who were 10-15 years younger than us. It made for the best ever Glastonbury and we've all decided to do the same next year.
  13. Never been in all my Glastonburys. Like all these 'secret' things I'd love to do them one day but a 1.5 hour queue?! Bugger that it's the worlds best festival and thats 1.5 hours I'll never get back. Does sound great though.
  14. Jesus I'm almost embarrassed to moan about being a bit down after reading what you've had to deal with! Really hope you get some decent luck soon! I've had enough of feeling like a fucking spaced out vacant idiot. Lethargic, no enthusiasm or get up and go at all. Keep getting light headed dizzy spells. I'm going to do some very gentle exercise tomorrow probably go for a swim to see if this helps. Fly to Vegas on Sunday so I really need to feel normal for a day or 2 before I head off.

    Forgot I did this too. Took 30 cans and having a few for breakfast was much easier than trying drink Gold or Stella.
