It may not feel like it right now but Day 1 is a good day - day 1 of the rest of your incredibly good sober life. Hang in there, whopper.

Mondays always come round so quickly never mind- am taking the dog to dog training tonight after work which is always a good laugh!

You sailed through a difficult weekend, mcflurry; well done.
