Positive thoughts

And a plan.

My friend Tori,  in a recent blog post (http://sothisissober.com/index.php/2016/08/08/stretch/#comments) talks about the

TIME  that is released when you stop drinking. The early mornings that are now useful time. The evenings where I can do lots of things because I am sober.

I have been thinking about what I could do that would be useful. Could I visit the elderly?, become a school governor? Help out at a scout group?

After seeing our friend J yesterday, I have decided to spend the next year raising as much money as I can for Prostate cancer research.

The final event I will do is a 100 mile ride (sponsored), but I will also do cake sales, and whatever other charity events I can think of. Ideas gratefully received. I want to raise £5000 over the year, so I have some work to do. It will fill my evenings, get me fit , and hopefully help the charity that has funded research that is helping my friend.

  1. Sounds great!! But don’t forget that getting sober is hard hard hard, and full of crazy extreme roller coaster ups and downs – (in my experience anyway) so don’t heap too much pressure on yourself, especially if you’re going through a rough patch.
    Will definitely sponsor you 🙂 X
