Let’s Eat

80 Days Alcohol Free

Blogging for 30 days seemed like a good idea at the time. Something to fill the hours when I used to drink. Ten days in, that idea got old quick.

Replacing Alcohol With Food

Alcohol was my crutch when stressed, bored, or when I needed to avoid my feelings.

I realised, early on, that it only made the stress worse. That made the stress drinking easy to knock on the head. Also I’d be mostly stressed at work – somewhere I would never drink. So, all I needed to do was make it through the evenings.

As for boredom. I replaced the alcohol with food. Thinking about it, at work I use food during stressful moments.

When it comes to feelings – just eat, its comforting when the feelings get too real.

All this to say. Food is the new/old crutch in my life. My ever expanding waistline is testament to that.

I’m working on it. Food is a harder one to tackle – its sort of key to keeping me alive. No doubt there will be more to come on my adventures in tackling my food crutch.
