I’ve been meaning to write this for AGES. I thought life without alcohol might be boring but I’ve been busier than ever and my plan to somehow celebrate the 6-month mark is now a touch late! I’m on the home straight with only 5 months left so here’s 5 things that I’ve learnt so far….
Some places still have rubbish choices for non-drinkers – I have consumed approximately 7,646 litres of soda water this year.
I can still stay out til all hours without if feeling like a drag to be sober – I’m usually surprised at how late it is when I start feeling like I want to call it a night.
I haven’t saved any money – everyone keeps telling me I must be saving so much money. Clearly, I wasn’t getting enough rounds in before because my bank balance is still just as disappointing as before.
I haven’t lost any weight – again everyone assumes the weight must be dropping off me, but there is no chance I am going to miss out on the end of night burger just because I’m not drunk 😉
I don’t miss it – I thought I would and there have been a couple of meals out where I’ve been a touch envious of the fella’s glass of red but other than that I don’t really think about it. It’s become normal now and I kind of like that.
