I ran a (very slow) trail half marathon this morning and don't reward myself with alcohol any more.

Neal a half marathon is AMAZING I think the max I can manage at the moment is 10km, it’s mad how fast we loose it :roll:

Today I won’t drink as it’s been 3 weeks - no point in stopping now :D

Drink is poison and a life taker for an alcoholic.
Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.

Because it's ok to feel emotions. Even when they're tough it's a healthy way to deal with things.

Well said Avocado. Too much fallout trying to cope with emotions whilst drinking! I am looking forward to learning to cope with life without booze ;)?

Being hungover sucks - it ruins the whole day and leads to self loathing and dislike of oneself.
