In the interim I have been busy working full time in the City and helping a young software company thrive. This has involved a massive amount of work and mental input but even at 62 I have the energy and brainpower to do this. Something I should have had available to me all those years ago when I wasted my time drinking instead.
One area of focus in my new book will be looking back at lost opportunities. I said in I Don't Drink that I would never look back but perhaps with age I have been doing just that. As you near retirement age and realise there is only a limited working number of years left you tend to wonder what could have been. I know I screwed up so many fantastic opportunities and all of them were buggered because of my fixation with alcohol.
