Trying to figure out what to do for the Sam Hunt concert tomorrow…
The day before the Sam Hunt concert had me thinking a lot about what my plan would be.
Should I drink?
Should I not drink?
If I do drink, what should I drink?
Does it count if I just drink beer and not wine?
Maybe my original statement was just “No WINE for thirty days!”
I know some people might think that I shouldn’t consider drinking alcohol, because my plan was to have NONE for thirty days.
But life is real and I’m not perfect.
And maybe part of my experiment should include trying to drink socially at a big event, but not take it over the top.
I don’t know.
On the one hand, I’d love to go thirty days without any alcohol.
On the other hand, I want to have fun and drink at the concert.
But…I don’t want a hangover and I don’t want to get too out of control.
Will I be able to have one or two drinks and then stop? Even if all my friends are boozin’ it up?
Ugh. The other thing I could do is just not go.
But I think that would be a cop-out.
I was asking my friend for advice about the concert.
What should I do?!
She recently came to the conclusion that if she was going to be out with friends for the purpose of socializing or at a special event, then that is an appropriate time to drink.
Go out, do your thing, and then come back home, without making it an everyday occurrence.
For me, the goal of these thirty days wasn’t to stop drinking forever…although I’m not sure what exactly the goal is.
Maybe it’s to take a long enough pause to reexamine my bad drinking behaviors and figure out how to get into a healthier relationship with alcohol.
So to sum it all up, I have no clue what I’m going to do tomorrow.
But I’m going to give myself a pass to drink if I want to and to not drink if I don’t want to.
