How to improve your life physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, easily, by clearing your emotions. When I was young my grandparents had a picture on their wall that had a poem of how fishermen got up early, fished all day and then made up stories of their day…probably about; ‘the big one that got away’ if they came home empty handed.

Have a smile,  a Shamrock Shake, and shut the F#&K Up! Days like this, in recovery, can really test you. They can trigger off a series of fantastical memories of how it used to be, or you can slip into poor me mode, that you can’t be one of the Lucky, who can drink their faces off on St. Patrick’s Day! There are pages and pages on Google that discuss How to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Sober.
