New picture

My original picture of two bottles of Bacardi was, in hindsight, not the greatest of choices for someone who's fighting drink. So I've chosen something altogether more serene and peaceful:

I'm feeling a bit more peaceful myself today. I've now had 4 days and 16 hours without alcohol, which is the longest stretch for me so far this year. Last year I managed 17 days in January but it all fell apart after that.

I had an email from a friend this morning to say that she is cutting out drinking for the first 3 weeks of October (until her birthday). We're meeting up later this afternoon and I'm going to suggest that she takes a look at some of the blogs that I've been reading: I've found a lot of encouragement there, and I hope she will too.

Some day, you may want to try one of the local AA meetings. You'll find a bunch of people there, just like you, who are trying not to drink - one day at a time. People helping people.

I like the new photo. And I agree with Daave.
