I am back, and want to record my progress over the next few weeks, as I have tried to do many times before.
It has been a turbulent year, with far too much drinking; and it’s been gradually getting worse. It is time to take stock, to stop wasting my time searching for the next drink.
This morning, a blogging friend’s book arrived in the post: The Sober Diaries, by Clare Pooley. I can’t wait to read it. This person has been a huge inspiration to me, and I am sure her book will be full of wisdom and insight.
In the meantime, this will be the first day in a very, very long time that I have not had an alcoholic drink. I need to do this.
