Alcohol is REALLY NOT for Me!
Sunday, April 16, 2017
After 60 days without alcohol, I decided that I could reintroduce it back in to my life. I enjoyed a GREAT day - feeling great - everything was all set for my Easter celebrations. Went out to dinner with my family - to a wine bar -so yeah, why not enjoy a glass of wine....or two...or two-and-a-half? Yes, 2.5 glasses of Pinot Noir later we came home. I fed the dogs and took them for their evening walk and then went to bed. I woke an hour later with anxiety -- "did I put eggs in the cake - did the recipe call for just the egg yolks?" -- and some anxiety about my daughter's horseback riding lessons. I was hot - I was cold - I was thirsty - more anxiety - tossing and turning. Up at least four times during the night. Why? Why do I put myself through this? I'm done - really. No more counting days without alcohol - that just keeps my focus on alcohol. There is nothing to count here - I'm DONE WITH ALCOHOL!! After last night - I have NO DESIRE FOR ALCOHOL IN MY LIFE!!!!
