To all my wonderful ladies: Happy International Women’s Day! Treat yourself to something nice today that doesn’t include al!
I want to add the positives and negatives after living 22 days sober:
I have so much energy
I am eating very healthily
Food tastes better
I am exercising daily
Nothing on my body hurts anymore
I sleep very well
I wake up feeling very well and don’t wake up exhausted, foggy headed and with a headache
My relationships are better
I actually remember what people said to me, what movie I watched or what book I read.
I don’t have to lie to anyone (especially myself)
I have saved money (Side note- my drinking never cost a lot…beer here is cheaper than orange juice. But the money saved is enough for me to go for foot massages twice a week if I had the time).
I do the things I need to do and don’t procrastinate. Ie., I no longer “waste” my time.
I look better (eyes, hair, etc.)
I am no longer poisoning my body with al.
I am connected to all of you.
I am not a danger to anyone.
I am more confident.
The most important: I AM HAPPY!!!!
My skin looks worse. I’ve broken out badly. But that can be easily fixed.
I am smoking a tad more. Also something that can be fixed.
The proof is in the pudding. Mmmmm pudding. So try it. Tell yourself you don’t drink anymore and stick with it. Struggle in the beginning. The struggle is well worth it. You will reap so many more benefits than if you keep drinking.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
