The only way is Essex ( Dagenham to be precise) its a long journey - why did I agree to go? however that is no excuse to feel down and have a drink this evening - I must be on guard. Cant let the side down, we are in this together. Happy Wednesday all! \:)/

.... to succumb today would leave me so gutted and disappointed in myself.

This website is helping me so much.... reminding me daily just how misguided it would be to listen to that 'Go on, just one glass can't hurt, you deserve it' voice.

Thanks all. And George, I hope the appointment goes well, enjoy a big cup of tea afterwards.
I want to be the best possible mum to my son.

Hey George,

I hope everything goes smoothly at the hospital today mate. I will have a sausage sandwich, and a cuppa ready for you later ;)


Lib,

Don't give in to the dreaded grog, it will drag you down. Stay stone cold sober and you will feel as coooooooooooool as ice ;)?

I will not drink today.
