    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.

    This could be the last for a week or so as I have a very social weekend coming up and then we're off to Italy for a week. Plenty of month left when I get back though.

    8/31 for today please although I am seriously tempted due to a wasted day on the phone caused by a major retailer having a meltdown of their delivery system due to snow, they have now lost my business and item will be purchased elsewhere.
    I understand snow causes delays but do not understand how a 3 day delivery can change to a 12 day delivery and then change to the item is out of stock (as in they sold my already ordered item to someone else)
    Sorry rant over and as I am on day 47 in a row I am not blowing my upcoming 50 in a row for J**n Useless L**wis

    Oh dear! Seems like snow is being used as an excuse for error. JL is certainly not the store it used to be. Profits down today and now you've gone and made it worse.
    Well done on your resolve to stick to AF.
