To those of you who tried to stop drinking yesterday but didn't succeed, don't give up. Today is a new day and you can try again. If you are trying, you are headed in the right direction. If you aren't trying, then you'll never succeed. Think of the millions of people out there who aren't even trying to stop. Give yourself a pat on the back for wanting to stop and then try again today. If you want it badly enough and keep trying day after day, eventually you will succeed. Don't be too hard on yourself, give yourself a break. Take care of yourself and be nice to yourself as you would to a friend or even a stranger. Don't give up hope and don't even think about yesterday today. It's a new slate, wiped clean. Do your very best at trying (like your mom used to tell you) and be proud of yourself. You can do it and you will, if not today then maybe tomorrow or maybe next week, but just keep telling yourself that you can and you will. I hope everyone has a great day today. Think of all of the good, positive things in your life today and maybe you can gain some strength from them. :)

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
