I can report I am still alive after a full week without any alcohol. It has been relatively easy with only the odd pang of want and involuntary reaching for wine after a hard days work.
My head and stomach do not feel any different. I do not feel any more energised and my sleeping seems more fitful. First week jitters.
My friends are looking at me strangely, or is it that I can just see them more clearly now the haze has been lifted.
A dinner out was nicely accompanied by a fejoia smoothie as opposed to a sneaky pinot gris that looked tantalising in all its chilled glory. Not that I'm missing it.
My sobriety mantra....."Beware the saboteur!" inner and external!
