What is it about nice restaurants and alcohol? Soft lighting, linen tablecloths, beautifully plated dishes of delicious food… and everyone in the place has a glass of something alcoholic in front of them. These are the times I miss red wine very badly, for the taste, the warmth, the feeling of the glass in my hand, participating in the ambiance… all of it. Maybe there are certain situations that will always evoke these feelings for me. I don’t know.
Coming home sober is great. Feeling healthy is great. Craving only a little something sweet at the end of the night is great. And I’m pretty sure these things make it worthwhile.
But there is definitely a trade off.
Not every day, or most days, or really even many days, but sometimes. Sometimes there is a loss.
Happy sober Sunday,
