I worked night shift for about a year and all I could think of when I went home was a nice comfortable bed. The bit of sleep aid you're taking may help with the noise, errant light, visitors and anything else that will, without fail, disturb you so I highly recommend you take your medicine!!

The expert whisky tasters I have met recommend doing tastings early in the AM 9:30 - 11:00. Seems your palate is better in the morning. So if anyone gives you grief about it just tell them your a professional!

I work overnights too and to answer your question, no it’s not wrong for us night shift folk. So drink up!

If anyone judges you, they don’t know the nightshift struggles

I too work at a local hospital as a nursing assistant. And do the 12 hour 8p-8a. I love the 12 hours/3 nights a week sometimes 4 nights if I’m working my weekend.

Although my hospital was purchased by a big healthcare company so they’ve had staff go to 8 hours. I’m one of a few left that didn’t jump ship yet while my co workers all panicked.



I think @CVAC085 is a lady of the night, hooker hours are rough.
Shhhhh. Nobody supposed to know about my secret life....LOL.

I'm a third shifter and work 5 to 6 nights a week 50 to 70 hour work weeks and nothing beats a cigar or pipe after the kids are off to school and the house is empty than a pipe or cigar and a good drink.
Bourbon or rum or even a good cheap wine. Neighbors know I work nights so they ignore me mostly. I might pee on their leg if they didnt. Or moon then. Hump their leg like a puppy. I'm 45. Its allowed. Some of the best conversations I ever had were during summertime when outside doing this. Im even funnier when drinking.
Drink up!
