I am tired, fed up and generally miserable - the only good thing is I'm sober and I want to stay that way today \:)/

Because, i like the way I wake with a clear head. Ready for a better day. I also like the weight loss and being to get up and head to the gym for a work out and swim!

... Yay! Dab, my fellow fan of all things Floyd isn't drinking either - we both know that alcohol just turns us into two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year, finding only the same old fears... So let's never return there, but instead plunge further into the wide and exciting sea of sobriety!

Best wishes to all who've decided not to drink today. And, to those who are still making their minds up - Wish You Were Here!

Life can sometimes be really hard - but it is harder when looking at it through the bottom of a glass and the aftermath...... the guilt, the chaos, the things you wish you could undo.......

So none for me today!

Mark like your post about swimming in sobriety. Was thinking my drinking makes my memory like a fish so thats my reason for not drinking today.

Good to see you back Dab. <:)>

I haven't felt guilty for 31 days, and I'm looking forward to making it 32.
