    I love all these 30 and 40 year olds on a thread about getting old, when I was 47 I came 2nd in the Scottish masters in the British Natural Bodybuilding Championship, fittest I'd ever been in my life. Now 62 with 2 new hips and some excess fat, I know about getting old. 😂

    Haha yes, bloody cringeworthy when 30 year olds (not necessarily on here)
    talk about getting old.

    Compared to young folk they are old, we're just even older

    I met a mate who I hadn't seen in ages last night.

    I was dreading it a bit because I'd been out on Thursday and whilst not totally hungover I could feel I'd had a drink. He was always a 'just one more' type. We sat there, spoke about us both now being a dad, spoke about both having another on the way, compared a few anecdotes about jobs and the like then called it a night after 4 pints.

    I still like a sesh from time to time but I'm increasingly good at calling it a night early doors. A couple of years ago when that happened I worried about it because I knew it meant I was getting old; now I like getting a decent night's sleep and feeling fresh in the morning. It still means I'm getting old, I just don't worry anymore.
    Absolutely. In the battle of "Go big vs go home", it's usually "go home" that wins and I have yet to regret that especially over the last few years.

    Knee marching . Think I might take that up, for exercise, as my bones get older. Not so far to fall if you trip, so less chance of breaking anything.

    When taking the dogs for a 5 mile walk leaves you in as much pain as 80 minutes of rugby used to

    If my missus has to bend down to put in a DVD, she goes back to the couch on all fours, as it's much easier than standing back up.

    I've found a period without alcohol has had rejuvenating effects. My mind is sharper for a start and I've saved quite a bit of cash.

    It probably won't last. The novelty will wear off or some stressful thing will send me to the Tesco wine dept again but I can highly recommend a dry few weeks.

    I stopped drinking alcohol completely on school nights after starting a career change and wholeheartedly agree with you. Having a couple before bed after a hard day was becoming a habit. I feel so much better getting out of bed on workdays now, still feel **** at weekends though

    Knees creaking!!

    Started doing a Parkrun on Saturday mornings, did my 4th this morning. Sit down for any length of time and my knees seize up. 🤔

    Exactly the same, can be on my feet for ten hours a day no problem, sit down for 30 minutes and can hardly move when I get up.

    You phone the opticians to make an appointment, write it down so that you know when it is. You drive the 28 miles to the city where you're appointment is, do other shopping and are sitting having a coffee until your appointment time when the opticians phone you to remind you about your appointment TOMORROW!!! 🙄

    When you lose all track of time and things that happened years ago still feel recent.

    Hibs winning the CIS Cup feels like it was a couple of years ago. I was 21.

    Somehow pulling the girl everyone in work fancied and managing to be uncharacteristically cool and subtle about doing so? 16 years ago.

    Falling asleep because I was so drunk in a 1st date? 11 years ago and we are engaged with 2 kids now.

    Even the Scottish Cup win feels like it only happened about a year ago. Nearly 5 and a half years ago FFS.

    The first concert I went to was The Searchers in Llandudno on holiday in August 1963. Too old to work out how long ago THAT was 😱

    You start wondering when space rockets started looking like a massive cock. When did they replace the pointy end with a bell-end?

    When you are still freezing 3 hours after being soaked taking the dogs for their morning walk. Had a hot shower and have turned the heating up in the office but am still cauld. Blood getting thinner?!
