Morning everyone,

Well I'm excited as I've got a cleaner coming in this morning. I used to have one but I cut it out to save money .. I've decided that I'm going to use some of my booze fund towards paying a cleaner each week!! I can't believe how
Much I was spending on alcohol, it's actually a bit scary to think about how much I've wasted over the years..
Oh well.. Not anymore !!

I'll check in later - coffee time xxx

Welcome Dropsie, congratulations on 52 days! I hope you find the camaraderie and support in the January “Carry On” class that the rest of us have enjoyed!

Those are some pretty impressive recovery numbers, Pedro! Congratulations.

Well peeps. Time to reset the clock for me. AV got the better of me last night. Had more than one. Pretty disgusted in myself but not going to wallow in the guilt. I let my guard down because I'm so exhausted with the pressure at work at the moment and we had a get together at the local sports club. I know what went wrong. I normally don't go out when I'm tired but if I do I have my phone handy so I can log on to SR if I'm struggling when out and about but didn't have my phone with me and someone bought me a drink so I drank it, and another and another. I shouldn't have gone when I was so tired...should've stayed home and had a cup of tea and logged on to spend the evening with my SR friends.
So Day 1 for me again.
I am in awe of you all and how strong you are. Love you guys to bits.

Friend died

Woke up this morning to the news that a friend/aquaintance was found dead.
He was a hard partier so we're assuming it was some kind of overdose of something along with alcohol.
Just waiting for the medical examiner's report. He was only 45.
A cautionary tale for all of us.
Stay sober everyone.

Most bad decisions I have ever made were due to fatigue or not following my gut instinct, Mish. Okay, so your back in the saddle and the journey continues. I’m glad you didn’t lose your compass!

Stay strong, Mish, sweetie. No one's perfect, but we learn each day.

... or an embarrassment thing?

FWIW, if I hired a cleaner, they'd take one look and perhaps refuse my pay. I try, I honestly do. But cut me some slack, I'm a bachelor.
