Yes, I like to drink a lot, every night. And sometimes it’s true that I wake up and the first thing I crave for is a cool beer, or a shot of whiskey in my coffee. But that’s not because I’m dependent on it, it’s simply because a lot of the time life is too boring to face without a little pick-me-up.
I’ve often thought that perhaps I do drink too much, and perhaps I need to cut down, or in fact get off the stuff all together. I deal well with drink, never get too rat-arsed, can mostly handle a hangover, and it’s never really effected my ability to get up and go to work the next day. However, there are two things that I have lost from my boozy ways: My figure and my money.
It’s no doubt that I have put on weight due to the amount I drink, and after documenting my struggle with weight loss on here, (yeah, I know I haven’t updated it… so, sue me!), it’s become glaringly obvious that the only REALLY unhealthy thing I put in my body is alcohol.
And my loss of money? Well, heck, booze is expensive y’all, especially in London!
Seen as it’s Stoptober (smokers are being encouraged to give up ciggies for the month of October) but I don’t smoke, I decided that I’ll give up booze… well, I mean, I might have one little glass of Prosecco, or French Martini, but DEFIANTLY no beer!
Wish me luck….
