When I gave up drinking for October I just wanted to see if I could, I would be a nice way to see if I could lose weight but most importantly could I stop drinking.
It was actually easy.
Only once did I get jealous of Gavin having a drink and that was a glass of champers when we went to the ballet.
I did find myself reaching for a glass when there was stressful moments. When frank spent have of October at the vets, when we had a hot of wedding drama, I naturally reached for booze to calm me down. To help me relax and distress, except I didn’t. I didn’t drink.
Its felt okay, I even went to the pub and tried an assortment of non alcoholic beverages other than coke.
Heineken has been my favourite beer.
Gordon do a decent gin.
Sainsburies rose was more like a summer cider but it was nice.
At least now I know that I don’t have to drink.
Did it help me lose weight? Maybe a pound but nothing to drastic.
It was a challenge for myself.
Now I need to start running again.
