Family & Relationships

Like most things that we count on to be there for us, it's easy to take our family for granted. From sharing a meal together, to agreeing to forgive and forget, commit to caring for the people and staying in touch with those who mean the most in your life.

    "This week I have had 5 alcohol-free days and Terry and are experimenting to find no-alcohol or very-low alcohol beers and wines that can take the place of the drinks we normally have, so that's been interesting and feels good. I haven;t been tracking my alcohol intake, though, simply because I haven't had any, but, perhaps I should just do it to reward myself. I did have a few drinks at my brother's birthday celebrations yesterday and almost let myself down when my Dad flew into a rage with Tim, mu youngest nephew, for only paying for what he had at the meal. My Dad was so cross that Tim was "stingey" and was really rude to him and to Charles, my older nephew, for being a "sponger" - so both boys were upselt! I tried to reason with Dad but got nowhere, which made me see red a bit. However, (I hope) I kept my dignity and didn't go too ballistic at him. Anyway, the upshot was, it all blew over, and we had a lovely afternoon, at Mum and Dad's, after we got back from the meal. So, here are my scores: 1) Avoid unacceptable outbursts /Cutting down on the amount I drink socially: B, 2) Designated Driver: N/A this week; 3) Track Amount of Alcohol I drink: N/A this week; 4) No of Alchol-free Days: 5 = A++. Therefore, I award myself the following Grade: A"
