So thats 600 then

Just looked at the calender and it's 600 days today .

I have a cold , every mad person in london was deciding to drive like a looney and have accidents this afternoon / evening .. my commute of 12 miles took 2 hours 20 mins .

I've got a long shower just waiting for me to step into as i've just had my dinner .

I made it home unscathed , i'm sober , i have no intention of drinking , i have no urges to drink for months now , life this evening sober is pritty great

If you're an alcoholic like me (2 bottles of wine a night and 2 or 3 of spirits at the weekend) then listen up .. being sober is great , do it now and don't look back , learn and use everthing at your disposal to make it happen , be ruthless and be bold .

If you're drunk reading this , lurking , like i used to . I call you out to try and get 90 days or 6 months sober , what do you have to loose ? I'd welcome a message in 6 months saying "i tried 6 months sober M , it was easy , i don't have a problem "

Right , i'm off for my shower , day 601 here i come , ready or not

Bestwishes, M

You are so very awesome, M! Congrats on 600 days. Sorry about the cold and the crazy London drivers, but try to have a little celebration for yourself today (Maybe some cake? Bacon? Cake with bacon?) as that is a fantastic accomplishment. Plus you're even more fabulous because you're such an encouragement and inspiration to others here. You certainly are to me!

((Big Hug))
