Me, on waking up: I’ve been very grumpy the last couple of days, I have no idea what might be causing it.
Don: well, it is probably because you’ve just stopped drinking again.
Me: oh duh!
I don’t know why I keep forgetting that cutting alcohol from my diet has a really adverse impact on my mood for a few days. I think I need to write myself a large reminder note.
The upside being that mood equilibrium will be achieved by the end of the week! The downside is that I’ll probably have a couple of wines with dinner on Friday night while in Melbourne and start the whole grumpish cycle again.
Quitting entirely and permanently is just that wee bridge too far right now, but I’m definitely keen for another crack at a lengthy booze-free stretch.
