Lightbulb Happy Fathers Day!

Nearly missed it

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads/Granddads/Greatgrandads and Step Dads celebrating today

Hugs too to those missing their Dads or for whom Fathers or Fathers Day is in any way a challenge

Fatherís Day is in June in the UK 🙂

This reply isnít in the spirit of the thread, but itís in the spirit of the forum. My father died recently. He was 87 and died peacefully at home, so Iím reasonably happy about that. But whilst Iím sad heís gone, Iím happy, and heíd be happy too, that it didnít cross my mind to have a drink to ďhelpĒ. I gave up eight months ago and had felt like a drink in stressful times during the first weeks, but it seems my body and mind donít need alcohol any more.

My dad drank one small glass of whisky a day, which is certainly fine. He was a genuine moderate drinker, so I donít know where I got my habit from! He didnít know I was alcohol dependent, but Iím sure heíd be glad I quit 😀

The message is I guess to quit when times are good. When hard times come, itíll be way easier without booze.

Sorry to derail the thread a bit. Happy Fatherís Day all 😀

Yeah in the Pacific Father Day is today.

I'm sorry about your loss Hodd but its not a derail at all.

like I said above this thread is also for those who've lost dads or whose relationships with dads or even as dads themselves may be not that great.
