    Cutting Down Alcohol Thread 30th Jan 18 at 2:46 PM
    Hi Guys,

    Sadly we lost our thread and I don't personally keep a private record of others AFDs so all data on the old thread is gone.

    I've decided I'm going to bow out for a while as I'm actually pretty busy here in RL. And my life is about to get really hectic as I'm moving home....Also it will be hard to have challenges if data is getting lost. Sorry guys.

    ....It's been great...maybe I'll be back in a few months...

    Ta Ta For Now.

    What do we do when we fall? We get up, dust ourselves off and start walking in the right direction again. Perhaps when we fall, it is easy to forget there are people along the way who help us stand and walk with us as we get back on track.

    Hello Everyone.

    My goal for Feb is going to be 11 AF. It is the same as I did in Jan but with less dates to do it in!

    Low alcohol night last night as didn't finish work until nearly midnight and whilst i technically didn't drink until after midnight i did have a drink before bed. Nothing for me so far BaileysOnIce apart from my goal. And Thank You.

    Oh Baileys, just gotta say I love love love all the icons you have chosen. I love particularly love the off the blocks banana one and the dancing wolfie.

    Itís a sad admission of things I spend my time doing on a Sunday morning but I have just been comparing % of my target achieved with % of year complete to show myself Iím behind.

    Thank you ever so much for taking on the baton from the amazing Shaggy!

    4/28 for tonight please Baileys
    15 in a row - I know that is not a big deal to the folks who managed dry January (and more) but I always seem to fall off the wagon somewhere between 7 in a row and 11 in a row and I think this is my first 15 in a row since last January so it is a big deal to me

    I think its a really big thing. For a long time I couldn't manage one day so when I did it was something to be proud of for me. When I managed Dry January that was the longest I had not drunk since I was about 20 and I'm well into my fifties now. So well done Paspatur revel in your success
