I don't drink
This afternoon I have to give a presentation to an organisation. This involves talking for about one and a half hours to a very set script but without the use of any prompts, and so all from memory. The words are quite ancient and complex so it has been a struggle to memorise them. Not having trained for this as an actor or suchlike, there is absolutely no way I would have been capable of this when I was still drinking. I know I wouldn't have been able to even focus enough time let alone commit them to a memory that used to leak like a sieve. What a difference when you have a sober life. Yes I am nervous, but with my motto 'Think Army', I know I will thoroughly enjoy the experience.
