Yesterday was my birthday and I had lots of nice things to eat – but I didn’t drink yayy!
I had a disgustingly indulgent birthday breakfast when I got home from work in the morning – a scone with jam and clotted cream, a piece of chocolate cake and a cup of hot chocolate too. After a bit of sleep I went out for a lovely curry in the evening.
There were 5 of us and nobody drank alcohol. 3 were driving (including a friend I haven’t seen for a while who is also having a dry January), I was not drinking and the one left didn’t bother because he had to get up for work this morning. My partner had a coke and the rest of us shared 2 big bottles of sparkling water so it was easy not to drink in the end.
Now the sober birthday is under my belt the next big thing I have looming is my first ever as an adult sober holiday towards the end of February. I’ve got to admit to having a few doubts about that but I’m up for the challenge.
