Five weeks what you ask?
Well its five weeks ago today since I last had any alcohol
I'd previously done three weeks without the booze this year and found it not only a refreshing break, but a great way to lose weight. I am now almost a stone and a half lighter than I was in 2014 which makes me very happy as my new year resolution was to lose some weight/get healthier. So, five weeks today I decided to knock the drink on the head again.
Surprisingly - for someone who has always been steeped in the drinking culture - I don't miss it at all. But then I haven't been especially sociable this past month so maybe that's a factor in staying dry. I can see the benefits; the aforementioned weight loss, a clear head, less indigestion, less IBS pain, feeling fresher and healthier. I'm really enjoying sobriety and I fully intend to get at the very least another week out of it to double the length of my last abstinence period.
Wish me luck!
