HERE IS THE LIST OF NUMBERS FOR THE 2020 CHALLENGE

The idea is to remain alcohol free for the whole year. Not everyone will be able to achieve this so blips/slips are permitted. Just make sure you try to jump straight back on again though please. You don't have to sign in at any particular time/date - just as and when you wish. It's nice to see people signing in throughout the year though so a cheery wave now and then would be appreciated ;)?

I hope I have included everyone who requested a number. If anyone has been omitted, please shout out and the situation will be rectified asap.

\:)/ HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOOD LUCK EVERYONE \:)/

Hi
If 17 is still free, that has been my number for the past few years, and I'd love to take it again, please?

Morning all, happy new year \:)/ from #3 (thanks so much for giving me my old number TC, thought I might have left it too late <:)> ).

Just wanted to offer some encouragement to those setting out to achieve a year sober from today. It can feel daunting or even nigh on impossible but really and truly if we can go one day sober ... one single day ... then we have what it takes to be sober for however many days our goals are set at. It’s certainly true that it’s simple ... just don’t drink no matter what ... but it isn’t always easy. That’s why BE is so brilliant, people here “get it”. We can come here any time day or night and post, read, ponder and find the strength to get through to day no matter how challenging it seems. It’s just so worth it <:)>
