I happily celebrated 60 days a couple of days ago. And by celebrate, I mean that I forgot for most of the day, gave myself a pat on the back, and got on with it. I did do very little work that day, mostly because my coauthor just left on Wednesday and I was totally drained for about 24 hours after that.
Wednesday afternoon after I dropped her off I had a slight craving but spoiled myself rotten with cheese and crackers, salami, roasted artichokes, and dry cucumber soda. That little meal probably cost more and had more calories than a good bottle of wine 😉 but it came with way less guilt.
Someone recently said that wine cravings are like annoying pop-ups on the computer- -that’s such a perfect way to think of them…they pop up from nowhere but usually you can just close them quickly.
I’m mostly doing fine without alcohol, hence being a bit more MIA. I’m going to try to post more! I did want to do a “what I learned” post after 2 months sober so maybe I’ll work on that. Mostly, I’m just shocked that I’ve spent two months without alcohol!
