I’ve been thinking about the “alcohol research” I decided to take up on day 173 in 2016. Looking back through my emails and remembering some of my thoughts at the time, I’ve come to the conclusion that it was something I really needed to do. I needed to see for myself if I would fall back into the old habits and eventually end up returning to that miserable boozy place. And I did. Not right away, but soon enough. So now I know. I know exactly what’s in store if I go back to that place, and more importantly, I realize more fully all the things I would be giving up.
Had a bit of a craving today – spring is in the air here and wine seemed like a natural accompaniment to the lovely weather. But, as it turns out, lemonade works just fine too. The husband and I ate out because our kids were both busy. He had soda and I had mango lemonade.
All is well.
Hope all is well with you too.
