I attempted to drastically cut back on drinking during the month of November. It didn’t “quite” work out to be a completely booze free month, but…
I made some real improvements! I’m going to try staying committed to doing as many booze free days as possible. Even if it means staying away from social engagements where it’s not only tempting to drink – but for a person like me with some social anxiety – essential to drink. Case in point a friend’s memorial party last Sunday. Free drinks were given to partygoers. I stayed home (mainly because I was exhausted) but also because I wanted to stay sober.
I’m not planning on doing “no drink December,” but moderation will be the watchword!
I know I’m doing the right thing for my sanity, my health and finances. It’s not always easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is – is it?
And with that a sober goodnight!
