    Hi @dennisG

    How are you going with your drinking?
    Have you had any small wins over the past few weeks? Or maybe some struggles you can't seem to get through?

    Hi guys, just checking in to see how you're travelling and if you have anything you want to share or talk about :)
    @CatsEye @Mama G @Phod @Mitchy..
    It has been awhile but hey, this year has just been a forgettable one really hasn't it so we might as well pretend it never happened and check in with each other! Sometimes just sharing a little of what has been going on is all we need and we can get on with our day and enjoy the sunshine :)
