Still feeling immensely proud of myself after so many months alcohol free, I have spent the last 3-4 days doing the usual day-to-day stuff but I have been relaxing with a beer or 3 at night. What a great feeling!
After resisting and remaining abstinent from something for so long, when you do eventually go back to that particular ‘sin’, it feels like you have really earned it; and boy, I have. It’s not quite the 1,000 days I recently set as a new revised target, after initially going for 2 years, but it’s still amazing, if I do say so myself.
The congratulations from friends and family have been greatly appreciated, so thank you!
Saturday morning (post 1 lager and 2 Jack Daniels & Honey) was a little disturbing, after having so little alcohol I thought I would feel fine, but the headache and sickness kicked in about 1 hour before I had to go to work. I guess the mixture of those two drinks with a Ruby didn’t help; ah well, lesson learned – I guess I will just be taking things relatively easy from now on and just drinking sporadically and because I enjoy the taste and to be sociable, as opposed to getting ‘smashed’ and not at all enjoying my memory loss as I so amply demonstrated when I was in my 20’s!
What else can I challenge myself with?
