Sixteen days ...

I've done two stupid things today, but neither of them included drinking alcohol, so I'm not going to beat myself up!

I came home from work absolutely shattered and thought I'd have a little lie down for half an hour ... 2 1/2 hours later I woke up! So, of course, wide awake with no chance of sleeping for ages. No problem, there's a good game on the computer that keeps me amused for hours, so I've been playing that, drinking lots and lots of Pepsi Max. Now that is stupid, because the caffeine in that, combined with my nap earlier, means that I'll be lucky if I manage to get to sleep before I have to get up at 6.45! And as I have difficulty in staying awake at work at the best of times (nothing of any interest to do!) I'll be nodding off over my keyboard tomorrow.

But it could have been worse. In the not-too-distant past if I've sat up late on the computer it's been accompanied by a bottle of bacardi to go with the coke, and it hasn't been a game, it's been chat rooms and boy, can you get into trouble there! Sober, I have absolutely no desire to go into any of the rooms I used to visit, and that's another very good reason for not drinking.

I once signed up on and I'm MARRIED. I could list 500 things I've done while drinking that I'd never do sober. Congrats on finding your way to YOU.
