This is not my first rodeo. Gave up vino for nearly 3 years then had a mocktail in Rarotonga that turned to a cocktail then wine then back on the bucking bronco this gal did ride. I don't get drunk often but can polish off a bottle of wine on a regular basis. I have a wine belly I would love to lose and lots of respect for myself to gain. Would love some support to keep being a strong sober warrior who can fight the wine witch when she starts whispering.
Day 19 and I’m here in Plitvicka Lakes where tomorrow I’m going to walk through the park and see amazing waterfalls and lakes and forest along with 1000s of others I’m sure, 😀. I am suffering a bit with an arthritic knee so I’m hoping it holds up. No desire to drink tonight. It’s hot 30 plus degrees and I’m more than happy with a cold pineapple juice in the sunshine. I just watched a very interesting Ted Talk entitled “Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong“ By Johann Hari. A suggestion by Mel Robbins. (A motivational speaker I follow]. Lots of food for thought. But also explains why I’m finding the connections we get through this forum so valuable! Thank you @mrsd for setting us up with a safe place to be honest with ourselves without judgement. I’ve got some ruminating to do while walking tomorrow. Take care of yourselves. Xx
Hari is a good writer and speaker for sure. And we are fortunate to have our own special inspiration @Mrs-d (with a hyphen 🙂 ) Happy wandering. Hope your knee behaves. I can remember being so inspired by Paris, many many years ago, that I walked, and walked and walked until my ankle couldn’t cope any more. Scary when there was so much more to see! Hope your feet and lega are holding up @Prudence
