Day 50: blah and more blah

I apologize in advance if this post is unfocused and rambling. I’m just going to try to write out what I am feeling right now, but I’m not sure how it is going to go. I’m at day 50 (halfway to my current goal of 100 days), and I feel like MORE and EXCITING andContinue reading “Day 50: blah and more blah”

Goodbye, 2019, and Good Riddance!

I am glad to be seeing the end of 2019. This was a very tough year. It is almost funny, the number of awful things that happened this year. So many, in fact, that (counterintuitively) one very good thing came out of it: I decided to stop drinking. The first thing that happened was thatContinue reading “Goodbye, 2019, and Good Riddance!”

Day Ten: Is there such a thing as too much sugar?

One of the ideas I love about not drinking is that I am saving so many calories that I can pretty much eat what I want. While I didn’t gain any weight at Thanksgiving despite multiple pie servings for days, I’m thinking that might not be the whole story.

And I thought, “Oh, you should get some wine to go with this. That would be perfect!”Continue reading “Day Nine: I'm so glad I didn't drink yesterday”

Day Four: So far, so good!

I’ve made it to day 4! Hooray for me. I’ve even made it to my parents’ house for the holiday and turned down wine twice already (and we’ve only been here for two hours… that’s a little scary). I’m not sure I’ve ever been here and not had wine EVERY NIGHT except when I wasContinue reading “Day Four: So far, so good!”

Day Three: Alcohol pushers are annoying

Today, I still feel like crap. All day, I’ve been just dragging myself around at work, but I’m finally off and can go to bed soon. Yay! So, I get home, and my partner tries, not just once, but twice to get me to drink some wine. Because I work so hard. Because I’m nowContinue reading “Day Three: Alcohol pushers are annoying”
