Thanks so much, I never forget that it was the people here who helped and supported me when I was in a right old state. It’s only when I look back that I see how much my life has changed. Sobriety rocks!

Thanks, aw shucks. Lovejoy!

You know why I chose Lovejoy? Although I love that series, a guilty pleasure I suppose, Ian Mcshane was quite the boozer but he gave up around the time of filming Lovejoy, sometime during I believe. He was roughly the same age as me now/a year ago. I read that hes never looked back, best decision he made stopping. I have found that useful to 'know' people who've gone from strength to strength. Importantly for me, that it's never too late.
Enough time wasted on this.
