18 January 2011


So, January, and those pesky resolutions.  Hmph.

We are still on track with our dietary changes and I'm still on track with my decluttering project, so that's good.  The 3 day weekend was a challenge in the snacking department, but overall we handled it pretty well.  The best news about all of this is:

We are not lushes!

Since we decided to give our livers a rest during January, we haven't had a drop of alcohol.  I was worried that it would be difficult, but thankfully, we are not yet addicted.  There have been a couple of times when we struggled, but we didn't cave in and I'm happy for both of us.

That being said, I'm looking forward to February!

I've always considered myself a functioning alcoholic and seriously thought I was addicted to the stuff, but I too have been abstaining since November and find it pretty easy.

I guess it's more of a psychological addiction than a physical one, which makes it a little easier to get away from. I had the same problem with pot. But that was really easy to stop. Anyone who claims marijuana is a physical addiction never smoked the stuff on a regular basis.

I do find myself yearning for a glass of wine but I also like walking around with a clear head too.

Kudos on being an unlush.

I could live without booze...but would jones if I didn't have my cup of coffee every morning.

I'm drinking eb's wine...no, just kidding. I'm not abstaining, but I don't drink much (never did, really)--now,mostly because it's part of my trim the fat (literally & figuratively--cutting expenses) campaign.

Yay to you two!
