So dear friends, I am now officially a non drinker! There, I’ve said it and it sounds so fucking good. I have finally broken free of the trap that I have been in for the last 35 years. As I sit here sipping a lovely cup of coffee I know that I have no need or desire to ever drink alcohol again. This truly is the beginning of the rest of my life. I am sure that there will be some bloody difficult times ahead but drinking alcohol will only make things worse, of that I am sure.

Now I need to fill the gap that booze has left. I need things to do to fill my time. I have decided to look into starting singing again with the local choral society so we will see how that goes.

I would just like to thank Craig Beck, Jason Vale and Kevin O Hara for all their wise words. I’m now off to order ‘This Naked Mind’ by Annie something or other to try and carry on my education.

Until next time, hope you all have a fantastic new year and as Kevin O Hara says ‘onwards and upwards’

See ya soon!!!

  1. Well done you! I also love Kevin O’Hara’s mentality and am on day 2 of my journey into sobriety. I decided to go against convention and stop yesterday just because I can! I have been drinking for nearly 30 years and am looking forward, like you, to being free. Wishing you all the best! onwards and upwards mate!


  2. It is January 1st 2016 and I am hangover free for the first time in many many years. I plan on following your journey. Hang tough and enjoy your new found freedom! It gets better and better.
    Onwards and upwards! 😀
