Because my anniversary yesterday brought back memories of a destructive life when drinking. Happy to be alive and want to make this day count. Need to get motivated first though lol. ;)?

Hiya Shadowlad, Congratulations for 7 years dry. Have a great day.

Me, I'm not drinking today because I'm out all day and visiting my poorly neighbour tonight.
