Just found a bottle of wine


Its tax season here in the UK for us Selfies and I was going through a filing cabinet and found a unopened bottle wine, which is quite remarkable in itself.

I am six days sober which is 5 1/2 days longer than ever before. Was so angry with myself that I would hide a bottle like this, I called my Wife over and we poured it down the sink together.

Followed by lots of bleach.

Alcohol has no future in my life, that why I will have a future.

Well done, Lancashire. I get the bleach thing too. For me, I thought that dumping that almost full handle of vodka into the toilet did the same thing. It's a powerful image.
