Re: How to say no to a drink

Hi Lel, love your post <:)> I did three weeks sober and had a drink at some work events last week and this week. Not too much, but I felt better sober. Why is it that at home I can manage it now, but not out in public? I actually enjoy the tea and juices. But at Afterwork Events I just need that gla...

Re: I Will Not Drink Today Because..............

work is so stressful and drinking won't make me "deliver" any better results. I think I have taken so many baths to "unwind", I could be turning into a fish ;-)
