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.
