Ok… so I’m making it official… and please try not to laugh but I’m going to try and not drink for a month.

I’m going to try not drink from the 10th of Jan, to the 10th of Feb. Why from the 10th, because I’m going to have a lot of left over alcohol from new years seems new years isn’t really happening too much for me! My friends and family will be happy because they won’t have to worry about my usual new years antics as much because for some silly reason Cafenatics is open at 8 in the morning new years day!!! So that means I have to be at work for 7 in the morning and I can’t hack being at work mega hungover like the Aroma days, so I’m going to spend the day at the beach, maybe go watch the fireworks on the water front, then run home so I’m not like a fucking zombie tomorrow.

I don’t really mind missing out on new years as everywhere is all fully booked up and I’ve spent enough of my wages already this month!

Do why am I not drinking fora month…

  • Alcohol is super expensive here and I need to save up for when mum gets here.
  • I’m on a mega health kick at the moment, I’ve been to the gym nearly everyday and eating super healthy but I won’t see any real progress unless i do give alcohol up for a bit. I feel I could return back to my level of heath and fitness I had about a year and a half ago, even though I was living with the boys in Canwick eating just veg for tea and not a lot else, I definitely don’t feel as fit as I did back ten.
  • Also I want to prove to myself that I can say no for a whole month! I’m forever known as the one who goes for ‘one’ drink that turns into 5 so seems I so far away fro everyone at home why not get rid of that label for a bit.
  • Finally I don’t think it will be that hard… I’m in one of the most health conscious cities in the world and I work with some people who are completely straight edge who have chosen never to drink in their life, so hopefully I can gather some good tips from them.

Now I don’t intend on giving up alcohol forever I just want to test myself a bit and by writing this it makes it official so I have even more of a reason to do it!
