I have a bit of cleaning up some unmanageability to do but nothing was getting better on its own. As a Mum I recken I need every wit in my head fully functioning all the time. x

You know 25 days is a lot right now and it is a wonderful start and never for a minute look down on that small milestone! One day if you allow things to continue it'll be a drop in the bucket because days, then months, then years and if it all works out you'll be a person many will never know ever drank and being a mum you'll have a family that'll know your standards on the subject.

So use your sponsor and ensure your sponsor has an active sponsor as it is important to go full circle as we pay it forward.

Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day.
