Well look what the cat dragged in (literally ;))


I just thought I'd say hello to old friends and new members alike and let everyone know that I'm doing fine and enjoying life.
I did a lord Lucan again because I just needed to stop going on about drink, harping on day and night about alcohol and it's problems was taking it's toll and I just wanted to live for a while without even thinking about it, which I did and it's been brilliant, although I have missed far too many people on here as a tradeoff it's still been brilliant, at almost three years sober going six months unsupported was easier than I imagined.

But I have missed people here and bonds are made in times of intense emotion and there is nothing more intense that having that last drink so I feel drawn back to this wonderful place to administer my upmost annoyance on several deserving people, also to do this <:)>


Keep smiling,

Mick :D

Hi all,

Haven't been on here for a while. Been too busy drinking myself into oblivion.

I have finally realised i need to quit otherwise I'm going to an early grave.

I have made tomorrow 1 May my sobriety date.

Wish me luck! :?:

Well done for coming back here QB, I really hope today is the start day for you. It's always tough facing day one but hang in there <:)> it truly DOES get better as you know from your 6 years sober stint. All that can be yours again so don't lose heart.

Newty <:)> so lovely to see you here again \:)/
