Self care at Christmas

I am delighted to say that I am still alcohol free after nearly 12 months - and I've got better at finding nice drinks and alternatives, so i don't feel deprived. I can't imagine how I got through last Christmas, drinking every evening. The different is amazing. I have the odd pang, but I just let it go and move on, normally having a nice cup of tea whilst waiting for the feeling to pass. Today I was in Orell Füssli, and treated myself to a new christmas blanket, glossy mag (yes, I'm gently graduating towards GH) and a new book. Life is good :-) This Christmas I will sit down and read and relax, and maybe write a few blogs here and there...
