Christmas Revisited

With the flow of Christmas parties in full swing I find it necessary to revisit the reasons I choose to stay sober by reminding myself of the reality of what I have left behind.

I came across this post below that I wrote last year for the The Guardian and it reminds me how to see through the booze and see past the cold bottle and twinkly glasses. Hope it helps you too.
