Ok so now its time for me to write a post I really don’t want to write, but think I better had. Its more of a pledge, if you will! In the recent months, I’ve discovered my hangovers are getting worse (2 day long at best), my endometriosis has been playing up and my mental health has been all over the place. I’ve also recently started passing out when I’ve drunk ‘too much’, but ‘too much’ is no where near the amount I could drink when I was 18 or 21. I am also constantly fueled by ‘the beer fear’ – that irrational fear you get the day after a heavy night out when you are unsure of who you saw or what you said to people, although its normally nothing at all.
Now I love a good wine, a pint of cider or a bottle of beer. I’m not too keen on spirits but a cocktail is always good. But for November, I’m deciding to give it all a miss. The intention is to have a completely clean month, and take a long hard look at the amount I can and should consume. Its not that I have a problem, I don’t drink every day or anything, and I could quite easily have a night out without booze. But I just feel for my own personal well-being, it’d be a really interesting experiment. Who knows? I might end up straight edge!
Any non-alcoholic drinks you can recommend me, send them my way!
