Not drinking!

It’s been exactly two weeks since I told myself (and all of you) that I was done drinking. After going though three bottles of whisky in 13 days, I figured that I should probably scale back. A lot. That’s seriously a lot of drinking, and I didn’t like that it was becoming *normal* to come home and drink that much.

So here’s what I’ve learned.

1. I cheated and drank ONE beer with Papp four nights in.
2. Drinking is expensive!
3. I sleep better when I don’t drink.
4. People look at me funny when I tell them that I’m not drinking anymore.
5. Alcohol has a lot of calories.
6. It wasn’t difficult to not drink.

  1. Very true, I feel the same about wine. Hate that I love to have wine with dinner. Sleep better without it and don’t need the empty calories.

    Congratulations… I had to quit a long time ago, and I still feel self-conscious about it sometimes, but I would not be here if I hadn’t. And I think it’s important to tell other people you’ve decided not to drink if you really have decided: Keeps me honest, anyway.

  3. Echo all of your points! Not drinking isn’t hard…the weird looks will decrease with time. 😉

    Besides, I’d rather be riding my new bike on a sunny Saturday than in bed with a hangover!
