I'm taking on this Dry January challenge in memory of my stepdad (who I consider my father as he raised me from being a baby) who had a difficulty battling alcoholism for years. I lost him in June during his fight against alcoholism and in retrospect wish I'd done more but he'd always tell me not to worry. He's always supported Cancer Research UK after he lost his wife Sharon to cancer, many years ago, a difficult time that re-triggered the alcoholic within him despite nearly overcoming it with her by his side.
No alcohol or chocolate may sound minor to alot of people, but I've admittedly got a bit of a binge problem when it comes to chocolate to the extent it's my form of addiction you could say.
This'll be embarrassingly hard for me so please support me to take on a challenge that my dad unfortunately lost a battle against x
