When I took my week long leave I made a point to not indulge in alcohol for different reasons;
1. Loss a few pounds.
2. Spend more quality time with my daughter.
3. Reach a natural way of sleep that is not dependent on alcohol.
I’m used to having 2 glasses of wine every night with dinner so by day 5 my body was in withdrawal. I have to say I cheated by drinking 3 wine coolers in one night.
However after my leave, I had to indulge again by treating myself with a long island ice tea. I have to say it was the best one after my short dry spell.
I noticed that even with the short amount of time without alcohol, my alcohol dependency was curbed. I don’t have the urge to drink every night anymore which is a good thing, since its helps me towards my goals and I get to save some money.
I have to say my drink of choice is red wine. For me the darker, the bitter, the better.
