This may sound a little strange . Whenever drowsiness sets in , eating an apple helps  . The natural sugar must be a key ingredient .

 

Here's to good health all around . And to condensation of well being of all .

hickup, egschooozshme pleashe, so many sheds od gud scheer an I do`n knowsh whish shed to postum gud Chrishmus scheer frum an sho I wil dooo it frum here.

I Pray that each and everyone of You had a very nice Christmas, I pray for everyone that, their new year will be filled with a lot of love from those that are close and some not so close too. I also pray that everyone has a nice and peacefull new year, filled with good times, good health and, a smattering of good fortune, that You will always have a shelter over Your heads and that there will always be food on the table.

Merry Christmas My friends.

NOPE ! ! ! ! I do`nt drink a drop of any sort of alkeeehol, makes Me do dumb things, sort of makes a crazy man out of Me, NO, I mean that other kind of crazy.

Before midnight, Christmas eve, nineteen years ago, that was when I took My last drink.

I had prayed to God, "Do`nt let Me take another drink, for over three years, begging and pleading. I became to believe that this GOD stuff was a bunch of hoooey.

I was in trouble, mostly on the job, I was waiting for them to tell Me to load up My tools and go home that, I was fired. They gave Me way more chances than they would have had to, they gave Me My last chance and I blew it, I was finished, done. How could I afford to drink without My job ? ? ? ?

Well Christmas was on Sunday, I had blacked out across My bed, after over 24 hours of a runner. The day was almost over. I had not made contact with My Sons and, Christmas was gone.

I did`nt know what to do, so, I slept but I had set My alarm for 5:30 AM on Tuesday morning, Monday was Our work Christmas.

I called My Supervisor and told Him some things had come up over the weekend that I needed to take care of and, could I please have the day off. Well sure You can have the day off, You have time on the books, He then thanked Me for calling in, what was that about, oh yeah, I guess I never called in, I just did`nt show up.

Well, I had this jug of whiskey, it was about 2/3rds full, leftover from My runner. I sat there looking at that jug and figured if I could just get a good portion of that jug in Me that, I could get this job done and cease to exist on this earth, well, I guess this thing called God had been listening, He would not let Me take another drink, I could get that bottle just about up to My lips then, this most putrid smell, I would have to set the jug back down.

Then, from in the back of My mind comes this message, call the treatment facility, and so I did. I was told to get in there as fast as I could, to throw some clothes in a bag and get there NOW.

So now, what will I tell My supervisor ? ? ? ? but, mysteriously, My fingers were punching the numbers on the phone. WAIT, what am I going to tell Him, too late, He answered, From somewhere came the words, "Hi Ralph, this is Martin, I have a problem with alcahol and I do`nt know how to handle it". His words back was, " We sort of figured something was going on", well, through Our phone conversation I did`nt go to treatment, I went to several counceling sessions and then I was giuded into AA.

My life has been getting better by the year, one day at a time and nineteen years now and not counting.

My Sons tell Me that that was theee very best Christmas present a Dad could ever give their Family.

 

So, Have a verry verrrry wunnerfull gud New Year.

 

If, anyone would like to give their family a gift of sobriety this holiday season, feel free to PM Me and, together it can happen, I am NOT alone anymore.
