Anyone who would mock a guide dog, or the person its helping, is a cnut.
Yer missus has my support (even though I doubt I will ever see the program...  :-\)

I cant really put this under the drokking fantastic thread or even in the black dog thread so i'm chalking it up as a minor victory.

As of yesterday i've been 20 months clean and clear of self harm of any physical form.

Well I spoke too soon...

Sorry to hear that, Hawkie. Don't feel too down, though - we're only human and none of us is perfect. 20 strong months is still a great achievement, one that cannot be erased by a single poor day. XXX.

Hence this at the time ...

I would only add one thing, if the worst should happen and you have a minor stumble then be compassionate with yourself. 

From personal experience this is not surprising.  It happens.  Focus on the fact that this is the first in 20 months.  I hope it isn't the case but there may be a few more stumbles over the next few days / weeks.  Then things settle down again.  I always found that the post event guilt was the bigger problem.

Was it John Wooden who said that it is not how many times you get knocked down but how many times you pick yourself up that matters?  So long as the latter is more than the former we make it.  We just need to remember that after the fact.  Then the months turn into years, turn into faded memories ....

You aren't on your own pal, loads of folks here rooting for you.  Keep that in mind.

I'm not going to pretend that I've got a magic answer for you, just know that Tjm86 is right when he says we're rooting for you.
Here's to the next 20 months* free.

*(and hopefully more!)
