I’m back…

Oh dear, it’s almost two months since I last posted. I slipped back into drinking again during this time but fortunately nothing too dramatic or excessive. It started creeping up again – as it always does. It started interfering with my health, happiness and productivity again – as it always does. I’ve had no horrendous hangovers but too many days of feeling a bit crappy for the whole day. It dawned on me again that this is shit – as it always does…

So, here I am again on day 3 🙂

    This post is a good reminder for me to stay the course. It’s so easy to think having a little now and then is no big deal. But there’s a downside. As you say, always. It’s just not worth it. Thanks for helping me banish that little nagging pull.

    Welcome back to the upside. xo

    Yep. It’s just NOT GOING TO WORK. EVER. Once we get over THAT fact, it’s pretty easy to move on. Good to see you again!

        I think it’s really about turning your head around to look at the world differently. While you’re drinking you can’t imagine your life without alcohol. It’s seems like it would be so empty and dull. But once you get your mind to accept the fact that it’s JUST NOT A BIG FUCKING DEAL you’re on the way. It’s really not. We obssess over the “deprivation” and unfairness of being unable to have something that no one actually needs. So yes! Small word, big deal:)
