To be honest, while the first weekend was difficult, to my extreme surprise not drinking has been really quite okay.
Of particular challenge though, was lunch with MrT and the other manageresses last Friday. Really I have absolutely nothing in common with these people (they do not discuss music, books, art, films, popular culture &etc) and generally a couple of glasses of wine at such an occasion tends to ease the pain.
But I was a champion and suffered through two hours of relentless: “just have a little glass”, “come on, one won’t hurt” at every new glass of wine, and then “have a cocktail”, “just a little cocktail”, “it’s a hot day, a cocktail would be really nice”. Such boorish behaviour simply strengthened my resolve.
In addition, I’ve been saving mucho cash. Already I have taken the $ I would have spent on wine and bought myself a sexy nexus (which is totes Ace!).
All in all – good stuff!
Yesterday, I decided to modify the project. I’m going to share a bottle of wine with Don on Friday night and then I intend to not drink alcohol for a year.
No, really for realz.
