You all ever notice how the news station will open up with "Good Evening"......and then proceed to tell us why it's not a good evening. Just asking. :D

Day,
I have woke up a few mornings like that in the past. Felt hungover, but knew I wasn't because I hadn't drank the night before. Not a good feeling.

I loved your posts Unicorn and Allerion, they made me smile.♥

I have booked a sunshine filled holiday with beautiful beaches, I love to swim, so I will not drink today as I have to be looking my very best for the summer holidays \:)/

...I love getting up early when I'm not at work (already been up for quite a wee while) - not lying in a subconscious stupor until mid morning/early afternoon sleeping off the worst of a previous day's slurry slurp session - time is a precious.

I have reached day 7!!! alcohol is poison and ruins lives. I wouldn't wish anybody to have lived the past 10 days of my life - but if they did they would realise how much better life can be without it.....

If I can manage a weekend of summer festivity without drink, then a normal Monday should be a breeze!
