Oh bar blummin humbug mr w, maybe you will have a change of heart when Big Ben chimes and we all celebrate the end of one and new beginnings, would be great to have you along for the ride after all our resident hula hooping queen will surely get into a muddle keeping tabs on all the challengers me thinks there will be more joining in so she'll be lost without you no pressure ;)

99 checking in on the last day... Worst year of my life, but this time tomorrow I will be waking up clear headed knowing that it would have been even worse if I'd given in and poured that wine.

Wishing everyone a happy 2014, let's give ourselves the best possible start to it and ring it in sober ;)?

Yeah. Go to bed sober, wake up clear headed. I love not being an alcohol drinker. 2014? Bring it on.
be selfish in your sobriety.

Take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs. Mark out a straight path for your feet.

Good to realize as we start the 2014 challenge that life will still be difficult. Maybe even worse. Once we get started tomorrow morning we have to expect trouble and be prepared to avoid reacting with alcohol.

Turns off ignition.
As of tomorrow, I am travelling on Soberfoot.

Happy new year to all us Strugglers and Soberoids, Relapsers and Regroupies. May 2014 be a safe and happy one for us all.

Bumpydog checking in at the end of 2013. Still sober! That makes 1 year, 1 month and a bit! Still can't believe it! Didn't think I'd complete this challenge!

Roll on 2014!
