It was a very quiet and dark and lonely night.
I’d been drinking with a friend, and then I realised he had gone to bed late, so I’d gone and put on some headphones.
The next thing I know I hear him talking to his friend.
“Did you get your headphones off?”
“Yeah, did you get that?”
“That’s the last I heard of him.”
I thought I’d better find him and ask him what happened, and that’s how I ended up finding myself in the back of the van on the side of the road in a field.
It was very cold, there was no breeze, no air conditioning.
I just felt like I was floating in a lake.
The sound of the car door closing and the car coming to a halt and I’m sitting on the back seat, I just sat there for an hour.
It wasn’t until the following morning when I woke up in the ambulance that I realised I’d lost my memory.
“I can’t remember anything about the night before,” I said, “but I’m not sure I’ll remember anything afterwards either.”
I don’t remember what I was doing in the van or where I was at that night.
“It’s impossible to say how much you drank, how much your body was affected, what your symptoms were,” Dr Lydgate said.
I was just in the car.
I’ve been told by doctors that alcohol is a very addictive drug and that it has a lot of risk factors.
The risk factors are: alcohol intake can cause memory problems and changes in consciousness that can lead to hallucinations and memory loss.
There are also some people who develop memory loss due to alcohol-induced hallucinations.
Dr Lythgate said that if you drink and you become drowsy and fall asleep in the middle of the night, you’re not likely to remember anything that happened the next day.
“People tend to think, ‘Oh, it’s just a dream’,” he said.
You have to have a memory impairment, but if you can have some sort of awareness of what happened in the day, then you’ll be able to recognise the fact that you have a problem.
“If you don’t have that awareness, you might have a good idea what happened that night.”
The effect alcohol has on memory can be significant, and is usually experienced in a few days.
If you have any symptoms of memory loss, Dr Lothagems advice is to drink a bit of water and try to relax.
“Don’t drink any more than you normally would, and don’t try to keep up your normal routine,” he said, adding that it’s important to try and remember things that happened.
But if you’re having memory problems, you can’t drink and be completely sober for more than two hours at a time.
The problem with taking alcohol to the brink of intoxication is that you’re going to lose some of the benefits of alcohol that you might otherwise be getting from alcohol.
For example, it can be hard to remember the details of what you were drinking, or you may forget to take the correct amount.
“The fact that it can cause a loss of memory, it could lead to a loss in motivation,” Dr Lauren Bedding, a professor of psychology at the University of Queensland, said.
And the effect of alcohol is cumulative.
“Even if you’ve never had a problem with memory, you’ve been through a period where your memory is impaired, and so you might develop these habits that you’ll need to live with for the rest of your life,” she said.
But Dr Laurel Bedding says it’s not that easy to get away from alcohol problems.
“There’s a lot you can do,” she explained.
“For example, if you take the time to look at your drink, and if you think, I have an alcoholic drink that’s been going on for a while, it’ll help you to recognise when you’re drinking alcohol and it won’t hurt you, and it might even be a bit helpful.”
There’s also the idea of getting to the point where you’re actually doing something about it.

If it was easy to start to understand the effects of alcohol, we know it was harder to get out.
Here’s what you need know about how alcohol affects memory.
How is alcohol affected?
Alcohol affects memory by affecting the way it’s processed.
The brain’s brain chemicals change as it’s being processed.
For some people, the effect is gradual, while for others, it starts to kick in.
The alcohol you’re exposed to can change the way your brain processes it.
The effects of drinking alcohol vary from person to person.
Some people drink alcohol every day for years and get
