Stop Sitting Indoors

Trust me, otters are nowhere near as rare as the environmentalists make you think. They're everywhere, it's just that humans are usually too loud crashing down the bankside and scare everything away.

If you're fly fishing at night and tip-toeing down a seatrout river in total darkness they'll come right up to you and brush your leg, often calling out wanting a free meal. Blummin' pain they are!!!

Amazing! People only became aware of them on that part of the river when the houses on the road that runs parallel to it started having their garden ponds emptied of Koi and then someone caught the culprits on their CCTV.

We have a water otter residing in our kitchen (y)

It is , but again at the same time , its sometimes about finding the right "balance in your life" as sometimes I need "bringing down" , and help relaxing and a nice glass of red with some music can help me enormously.

But you are right if your out right suffering from depression , stay away from any substances.

Alcohol is a strange one. Genuinely I think it depends on the individual. An addictive personality type will associate negatively and be unable to 'just have one'.

But there have been a couple of times I've felt like I needed to chill and had a drop of scotch and it's done the trick. Could be a placebo effect but I've always found with drink there to be a level of inebriation that was perfect for me!
