No Alcohol: Day One

I’ll be honest. It was easy today as I was unlikely to drink any alcohol today anyway.

Working a late shift and not getting home until midnight usually means nothing to drink. I really am not bothered about booze by that time of night. I normally drink water or perhaps have a cup of Rooibus tea before bed.

Sober For October

I’ve had comments from some of my Facebook friends that all I seem to do is eat and drink. That’s not really true, it’s just I don’t post up everything I do every day. Mostly, like many people, it’s going to work, and that’s not in the slightest bit interesting, so I don’t post stuff about that!

Anyway, I thought I’d have a go at being sober for October.  The most difficult times will be when I’ve got a day off and go out. That’s when I will tend to go to a pub, both to sample some decent craft beer, and to get something to eat (pubs often give the best value for money when it comes to eating out.

So here we are, October 1.  Let’s give this a go. Perhaps I’ll even lose a few pounds along the way!


A Good Nights Sleep

I mostly sleep badly. I have issues getting to sleep; I have issues staying asleep and I have issues with quality of sleep.

Once in a while though I actually get a good night’s sleep.

Last night was one of those nights and this morning I had that most rare of personal experiences.

I woke up feeling refreshed!

Have a great day!
