So, I have lasted 4 days of my 10 days mini-goal to remain alcohol free. It's been easy street thus far. However, now comes the challenge.
It is Friday night. The night when the troubles of the working week are behind me and ordinarily I would round about this time of the evening be opening a bottle of something lovely.
This evening, I have just had a cup of coffee. I have ordered my shopping delivery for the 9-10pm slot to assist in my efforts - it will keep me busy and hence my attention occupied.
I know it will be worth it. I know that indulging in the old Pinot will result in the scales going up. I know I will feel better for it. But those things feel ethereal right now.
I am out of my routine and that's the hardest part. It's like biscuits with your cuppa - it takes time to break the habit. All I can say is that it is going to be a long night. :)
