The place to say "I haven't had a drink today"

Post by Mike » 02 Aug 2008 23:11

Hi

I would love as many people as possible to visit this thread and post,

"I haven't had a drink today."

I think it may help all of us, especially the newcomers to the site.

Forgive me for the intrusion,but I think the point of the thread is for our personal gain ,by way of allowing us all to be proud of OURSELVES and reaffirm to ourselves that we have not had a drink today.I personally feel a sense of achievement by saying and writing that I have not had a drink today,yes its only day two,which is pretty pathetic really.I would never compare myself to others by looking on here and thinking he or she has had a drink today.If it helps anyone to just see it in writing or to reaffirm the fact that they havent had a drink today,it cant be such a bad thing can it? <:)>

I agree with HH and Amber, this is a very good thread for those that need it. I for one am looking forward to being able to say I haven't had a drink when I get to tonight.

Thanks Mike

I haven't had a drink today.

And I am very happy that some members in their very early days are managing to survive the cravings and are progressing well.
