I've actually just finished week 5 , finally stopped thinking about it at home, still very difficult when going out. Although travelled for work Wednesday and sat in the airport lounge and had a coke - normally I would have abused the free booze.I'm actually rather dreading the first day after the night before at the end of the wagon ride!
And we don't necessarily have to climb off the waggon on 1 February either!
I'm trying to do up to March 24th (day after TP100). Fortunately it seems to have got easier.People seem to understand it better if I say I'm doing it for a race/training, I imagine it would be a difficult adjustment if you just wanted to stop over a longer term for no "apparent" reason.How's everyone surviving the weekend?
This weeknd is lookin gto be the esiest yet - so I am feeling optimistic about February although I do have two leaving dos in one week
Imagine if you will the wagon careening racing along a bumpy potholed road with rocks and other debris in the way. Me holding on for dear life trailing out the back like a (large) flag in the wind!
That's been me over the past few days. The potholes and debris being life events set in my path. It's been tough, but I'm still here
Those who have a drink because they choose to rather than have life events choose for them, good for you, the wagon is always there to hop on and off at will. If I have a drink it'll be because I choose to, not because other people/events are driving me to it!
I don't intend to drink until at least April 21st, which is the day of the Great Welsh Marathon.
The inspiration and encouragement I get here are a large part of me being able to hang on to that rear axle
Tried a de-alcololised red wine today. I stayed off the booze though and drinking hot chocolate now.
Keep hanging on there old dragon.
I like the idea of soda water, not sickly sweet. I'll try that, thanks and well done.
It's gone very quiet in here, is this because January is almost over?
Good for you Ellie
28 days down three sleeps til the month is done
