I really want a glass of wine, but I’m not gonna do it.
That’s been something I’ve been dealing with lately and this whole going dry thing has really put my self-discipline to the test.
There are so many lovely moments to have a glass of vino, from enjoying it with hearty pasta dishes to sipping a glass by the roar of the Pacific Ocean, from relaxing with a drink after a long day to toasting alongside others after a hard week comes to a close.
But what I’ve realized is that those things don’t NEED wine. Wine just compliments them.
So, I’m resetting my brain essentially to see alcohol for what it is – a most delicious treat that needs to be handled delicately.
Even if one isn’t addicted, it’s very easy to abuse drinking. And the pandemic had made it far too easy for me to indulge…
So, this is where I’m at.
Day 16 dry and feeling pretty damn good… despite the urges.
Thanks for coming along with me!
