Two weeks without a drop.


In the last year, I have honestly not pushed past three days....result from abstaining?

Much clarity. Maddening clarity. Not even sure if I have a goal this time, just that I am entirely all about not drinking.

Fecking sucks on a Saturday...but at least I know I am not:

1. Spending Money

2. Waking up sick-on-a-Sunday

3. Going to have a "social smoke"

4. Be around folks I do not want to be around

5. Get irritated with strangers being in my way.

6. Have to wait for a bathroom with mouth-breathers.

7. Be any where near felons

8. Have a surprise in my checking account on Tuesday

9. Ingest 4000 calories (well....)

10. Chew my teeth and have shaky hands on Monday, making a promises to not drink while I waver over the urinal and wonder how long the two day hangover will last.


Score! Hooray, me.

Thanks all, the first week absolutely blew.

Battery acid taste creeping into my mouth by Wednesday night, teeth grinding, and yes, racing thoughts and sweats.

THAT in and of itself convinced me that yes, there was something going on the cellular level. Not cool.

The only thing though, I have an amazing sweet tooth now....
