Half Full

It sits.
Catching dust.
My sip of choice.
Once my friend.
Then my foe.
It has sat for a while in this state.
It can sit like this forever, for as much as I care................



January.........5 Years sober.

Incredible achievement. Bravo!

You've not only got the dirty great monkey off your back, but you tamed it and made it play the pipe organ in a silly hat.

Keep kicking its ass.

We need more strong, talented, amazing women to proclaim that in our drink-soaked culture that not drinking is ok.

De-lurking to say well done, you rock.
