73 days alcohol free.
The first Christmas drink was opened last night. A bottle of Prosecco.
I was surprised at how much this tested my resolve not to drink.
The OYNB course does prepare us for these occasions. It was a case of mentally dipping in to one of these lessons.
For me, it was imagining the hangover in the morning. Luckily Prosecco gives me an evil hangover, so this exercise was easy. It was very easy to imagine the banging headache the dry mouth etc. Once that was fixed in my brain, there was no way I was drinking.
But I do need to be more prepared. Go back over the lessons and find other ways for future tests.
Other than this one moment, I am totally in the Christmas mood. Looking forward to the break, I think most will agree 2020 has been exhausting. I wish everyone could get a break.
Even Murph Dogg is in the Christmas spirit.
