I’m officially committing myself to having NO drinks for at least the remainder of the month of November.
My recent bout of high stress, illness and…icky stomach symptoms – are driving this change. I’m doing much better and not having any indigestion from food or any other alarming symptoms – just indigestion after having even small amounts of booze. I’ve never taken amtacids in my life, but have started needing them every time I drink. So no booze for a while. I only get one body, after all… I’ll put my ironclad willpower to the ultimate test! I did walk away from a smoking habit January 7 with NO relapses. Not even any real temptation. I’ve got this!
This might mean avoiding bars that aren’t “sober friendly” (not offering interesting non alcoholic choices or no free refills). Might mean more Buzztime! It helps pass the time when my “pardner” and I are at the bar. And gives me an edge when everyone around me is getting toasted!
This also means I’ll be using my share of trivia prizes on food. And maybe trying a virgin margarita…hmmmm
I just hope my friends are understanding about this…I don’t want to be even more of a social pariah! 😂
