Booze Ban: Day 9

You know what, I'm really loving this booze ban. Arrived home on Friday to find ice-cold bottles of Prosecco getting quaffed willy-nilly and I stayed strong my brothers, I stayed strong. In fact, it was easy, it's nice having certain choices taken away. Like shall I have a beer or a glass of wine or shall we open a bottle of fizzy gear or, you know, all that stuff. Got a bit restless in the restaurant that night after three hours in a chair drinking soda water, but Saturday morning was a joy. As was Sunday morning. As was this morning. There's something in this, you know...

Don't ya get fed up of fizzy water though?
Aldo why are Arthur Lowe, Bobby Ball and Simon LeBon out drinking together and why are they supporting the Jocks?

I did a no booze january. And it was great. You feel good all the time, and even a certain euphoria as the body begins to clean itself.
Then somewhere around the 2 week mark boredom kicks in.
I crumbled completely this weekend and even have a case of the fear this morning.
But am going to keep up no drinking during the week, at least give my body a fighting chance.

Good luck with it all.

bltp: the pic is rod and the stewarts watching the scotland - england game in, I think, 1977. To be honest, I facking LOVE fizzy water. But, it does get a bit, well, samey after 5 pints.
Hey Piersy: I'm still in the euphoria stage. I also like the bit when you get out of bed in the morning and your brain moves in time with your body, rather than three seconds behind...
Ally: It does look like him! Is that King Creosote on the far right?
