Danny. I think it's great that you are posting. Please keep on doing so. I really hope that more of you reading these messages will do so.

I particularly want to hear about how people are coping in a sober world like I am. I am sure we can all get something out of a post if we tell our stories. But we have to keep in mind that if we focus on only the negative we can not help but feel bad. I sure do. So I propose that for every drinking story (usually bad) we try and include an UP story or comment to help us feel like there is hope. No matter how trivial it might seem- there must be something good happening out there to someone.

I think that there should be no fear of receiving a negative remark or worse still, an insult, if we are just telling our stories. I directed part of my post to V and I expected a response and most likely a rebuff. That's okay with me.

I had a dream last night that I was with my partner and I took a few gulps of sparkling wine by mistake. I was so shocked that maybe this was the start of the end! I remembered the glare my girlfriend gave me. Luckily it was just a dream. But now that I think about it I remember being at a dinner function a couple of months ago where I was drinking barley tea and I picked up a glass of beer totally out of habit. The smell of the beer snapped me out of my lapse of concentration. I am glad to say that I have not had even a sip of alcohol for 9 months.
