The day after…

Can I tell you how happy I am to see this support group?  I’ve played with the idea of moderation in the past and even found this site, but there was nothing in my area for support.  Simply reading what I should do has never been enough and I’m not yet in agreement with abstinence. …

Time to tackle the 30 day abstinent challenge
