Just about to turn 60..how the hell did that happen. Went many years not drinking but when kids got older picked up again. Alcohol never a friend to me and I pretty much always drank to oblivion. And smoked like a fiend when I drank. Many embarrassing stories. Have been using a lot of other self help tools and finally picked up reading a book about taking a break from drinking and that felt right to me. I'm lucky in that I didn't crave alcohol..but still. Facing a trip to Las Vegas where everyone else will be drinking and I won't.Could be a challenge but I really like how I feel not drinking. Oh yeah..last episode was before our U.S. election (week end prior). If that didn't push me over the edge..not much could, haha.
Oh, I am a proud 62 today! 842 days sober and $6050 saved. Plans for day are to make a wonderful loaf of artisan bread, have a slice with a breakfast of fresh eggs and some sauteed spinach with onion and feta. A walk, indulging in my favorite hobby, and later dinner and a movie with a friend. Life is fabulous when you are booze free (tobacco free and weed free😆).✌
