The countdown in on in my head. It is 15 days – two weeks basically – to a YEAR since I stopped drinking alcohol. I am very happy. It has been a tough few weeks for me mentally. I have been dealing with a stressful situation… Caused by alcohol… not by me drinking however, so that is a bonus.
My last blog post about the merry-go-round came out of that stress. I had been so angry at how alcohol can f*ck up lives and just waste so much time, energy, money, talent and the list goes on. It is a bollocks waste of everything. But I need to realise that people can choose to drink, do choose to drink and really I need people to drink…. because it reminds me of why I don’t!!!
Thanks for reading along with me for the year. I am developing my merry-go-round analogy. It is, for me, a totally useful way of thinking about the futile round-about that we can get stuck on. It is useful for me to remember that it is a con. Yes, there are people for whom alcohol is a take it or leave it thing. I am not one of those people. I will drink again (maybe) when I am in my sixties. But for now, life is unfolding like a flower and I am too busy to be hungover.
Byee and love to you.
