How are you? Thanks for dropping in!
We’ve had a lovely day today, thank you.
It was a real treat to welcome friends old and new
to the 3rd double-day retreat of the week.
Finally, the toothache is subsiding, so the old Gray mare is back!
I want to share something with you….
Have I ever told you that I don’t drink alcohol at all?
Not a drop. Haven’t had a drink for at least 15 years, in fact.
I made a conscious decision way back then to try to avoid ANY mind altering substances.
So I don’t drink, don’t take recreational drugs, don’t smoke,
And I like it that way.
What others do is up to them;
as long as it doesn’t cause drama in MY life,
they can do whatever they like!
So please don’t think for a moment that I am playing
the clean-living, holier than Thou card!
Not at all !
The problem is that after all these years of clean living,
when I do take drugs, even tame stuff like regular doses of Ibuprofen or Paracetamol or any other pain killer or pain modifier,
they knock me for six.
After a week of popping pills like smarties every 4 hours,
trying to keep the jaw ache down, I can tell you, I wasn’t myself.
M I S E R A B L E.
But it wasn’t toothache miserable; it really wasn’t.
You know when you’re on the turn.
And I was on the turn!
So yesterday I knocked the packet pills on the head,
and went for the homeopathic oil of cloves old-school remedy.
Today, I felt like my normal happy self again.
Toothache? Numb from Oil of Clove, so don’t know.
Why am I telling you all this?
Well, firstly you may have toothache/dry socket one day,
and I am recommending Oil of clove.
Secondly, you may just be thinking about the latest news which hit the headlines today regarding alcohol consumption being a direct cause of several cancer types.
If you DO drink a lot, and you know you do.
If you worry about it and have thought about stopping,
then all I can do is share with you
that the benefits of a clean and sober life are phenomenal.
Oh. And you’re not alone.
The proof is in the pudding.
Have an evening to enjoy!
Love & Peace,
