Credit where credit is due
At New Year I was questioned about my year without drinking, and because my blog had stopped mid term, had I actually reach my goal.
Well, it gives me great pleasure to announce, (and a little pride), that on 30th September 2014, and after 365 days with out a drop of alcohol, my mission came to an end and I celebrated with an evening of the finest cocktails.
So credit where credit is due! And last night a friend asked me what I got out of the process? Here are a couple of pointers.

When I started the process on October 1st 2013, I was clear about two things. By the time the experiment was complete, I would have found the most rewarding, lucrative job on the planet and secondly my psoriasis (that I have had for 20 years) would be totally clear.
You can tell that God is laughing! When I finished the challenge last year, I found myself unemployed and my psoriasis was the worst it has ever been.
That is the bad news.
The good news is the challenge gave me an opportunity to consciously deal with my own shit, without the constant need to find the nearest escape valve. And in doing so I learned the most valuable of lessons…..
If I do what I have always done I am going to get what I have always got
