Drinking.... [Nov. 25th, 2010|03:11 am]
[Current Mood |thirstythirsty]

So I've decided to challenge myself and not drink alcohol for 4 weeks. So far, I'm a week and a half into it. I figured it'd be a good way to watch the waistline as well as the pocket book. What makes it difficult is my cousin Steven. If he's at home, he generally has a beer in hand. But I've done this before for 2 weeks and it wasn't too bad, so I figured why not try for 4. Dan doesn't drink alcohol, but he drinks pop so he said to help support me, he'll forgo soda. Guess we shall see how this goes...I'm thirsty though!

2 more days?

Hey, you probably think no one reads this, but I like to check in on people now and then. Was wondering how your month without alcohol is going? I know I wouldn't make it. Hope you're stronger than me.

And have a Merry Christmas!

Well I did pretty well. I think I made it 2 weeks without a single drop, then I had 2 beers on the 3rd week. And after that, well I fell apart. My cousin's 25th birthday came up and I hardly get to see her and since it was her 25th...well we HAD to get together. Decided that I would drink for special occasions after that or just keep it to a couple.

What I learned from this experiment: if you don't have a GOOD reason to NOT drink...then drink. Haha, just irritated me to think that I could have a beer and be fine, but yet I had made a deal with myself/boyfriend so I couldn't. What made it even more difficult was the fact that my boyfriend was so supportive. He made me feel guilty if I wanted to drink, which made me want to do it even more!

So I guess I'm back off the wagon and just trying to keep it to a minimal. So far....sorta good. Haha...
