I don't drink
On the basis of some of the feedback i have had from readers and from people I have met since quitting alcohol, I am writing a new book. In a way it will be a prequel to 'I Don't Drink!' in as much it will focus on helping people decide they want to quit alcohol in the first place. It took a huge amount for me to reach that stage, and I now know so many people also find it almost impossible to get someone they care about, and who has a drink problem to face up to reality and want to make that change. It will be a hard book to write as it will involve a lot of soul searching and truth facing but hopefully it will be ready this year. I had thought about basing the title on the last words my brother said to me before he died of liver collapse that night. Not knowing how ill he really was, I told him on the phone I couldn't see him in hospital that afternoon as I was booked to swim in the annual charity swimathon. 'I wish I was doing that too!' were his last words. Suggestions for anything more appropriate or for a strap-line would be most appreciated.
