I love Sauvignon Blanc. Occasional glasses have morphed into 3/4 of a bottle, several nights a week. I recently had a "health check" and that was the catalyst for change. I don't know if wine and I need to divorce, or if we just need a break to reset "normal". But what I do know, is that 16 days in I already feel better. I've gone back to the gym, am eating better, sleeping better and being a more engaged wife/mother. It's going rip-snortingly well. Too well, I suspect. Hence joining up. I am determined to make a permanent change.
@janus2, remember the goat track? The mountain. The view? The fresh air. Never, ever give up. It’s ALWAYS worth it. You’ve got us goats walking with you. Aren’t we a bunch? Wiry, resilient, resourceful. Kooky. Slightly weird and wired. We love you. Be brave xxx
FOUR BEAUTUFUL YEARS, BABY! WOOHOOOOO! Me too. Yesterday was my anniversary (I will always be in front – ha ha!). Time seems to have flown. Yet so much has happened. Life, eh? The good, bad and indifferent. So glad I’m doing it all stone cold sober. Love ya guts xx

Growth is growth, Seedy. I love how you can see the little victories and take pleasure and pride in them. It’s all positive – and helps us deal with the swirls of real life around us. Have a wonderful day xx
You’re back! I checked in a while ago to see if you were still participating here. It’s amazing how much little changes (like swapping Ellen for The Bubble Hour; NOT going to the dinner tonight) help to change ingrained habits and thinking. Hope all is well with you, hubs, kids, business, pups xx
1230 days of booze free living, today. Life goes on, with its normal rhythms of highs and lows. There’s nothing that could be made better with a glass of wine. I don’t miss it, I don’t need it and I don’t want it. Best decision I’ve ever made.
Hi. I started the AF journey to “reset” my approach to wine – a break, to be followed by a more healthy occasional tipple. That was 3.5 years ago, and I have no desire to go back to even moderate drinking. I love my AF life.
Hello lovely @Kerris. I’m eye deep in the restructuring process at work. Find out first week of June if successful at applying for new position. Would be keen to host a Hamilton shin-dig after the news is out.
I wish my Master Almost 17 had your daughter’s motivation! I have also “misplaced” my bunch of keys – house, car, garage door opener, mum’s house etc etc. Desperately wracking my brain to think where I could possibly have left them. Gah! Get better soon @seedynomore and I have my fingers crossed your wallet magically turns up!
Hey @Honner, you gearing up for our impending 1000 days celebrations? Got your rainbows and unicorns sorted? Trumpets polished and dancing girls limbered up? Bloody hell, don’t forget the glitter! Whoop!! xxx
Yup I with ya on that. But for me it’s each time I take a step there is this ginormous wind that seems to escape- and I do mean ginormous @ange least with swimming you do a tumble turn and it’s gently wee bubbles not seen by naked eye as u kick like fuck so bubbles excape from said togs.!!! Keep the life balance going you xo
I am fine and dandy, thank you @janus2 for asking! With 974 rock solid days of AF living under my belt, now like many others, I find myself looking for ways to up the ‘health’ and ‘balance’ factors in my life.
Rolling out the marching band, the red carpet and the dancing girls for you, dear lady @Kerris. Enormous congrats on two whole years of living booze free. You really are terrific and should be enormously proud of your achievements and growth. I feel privileged to know you and walk along side you on the AF path of life xxx
Tui song cracks me up. I love the way they boisterously play in the branches, too. The start of daylight savings, as our body clocks adjust, seriously sucks the kumara. Agree wholeheartedly. Hope you’re enjoying your day, dear @liberty x
