I don't drink
Now you have kicked the booze into touch you will have all that extra time on your hands in addition to far more physical and mental energy. Why not take the time to write that story that has been in your head for years, or simply start compiling your memoirs like I did? Self-publishing your own work has never been easier than it now is but you do need to follow some guidelines if you want to make it successful. This book produced by the group I belong to www.chindi-authors.co.uk contains all you need to get started. Don't sit there confused and wondering what to do with yourself, get the creative juices flowing and use that time to start something completely new! Good Luck. The book is available on amazon.
