Well, the Sam Hunt concert came and went. Did I drink?!
Well, the day for the Sam Hunt concert with my friends finally arrived.
So did I drink?
But YES. I had some beer.
My estimate is that I consumed about half a beer total over the course of the day.
Let me back up…
I started the day feeling completely at ease with whatever decision I made– drink or not drink.
When I packed up my cooler for the show, I packed some water bottles, a mini bottle of champagne, and some snacks.
I figured if I did want to drink, having a mini champagne bottle would be perfect portion control!
Before we got on the party bus, we played a few rounds of flip cup at my friend’s house.
I played one round with seltzer (lame) and another round with Corona.
It didn’t even taste good to me and I almost immediately regretted it.
But whatever– I rolled with it.
I had another few sips of beer on the bus, and then some more Coors Light for flip cup when we were tailgating.
Not a lot during flip cup, though. I poured very little in my cup.
And that was that. I didn’t drink anything else other than during the game.
We went into the concert and I was fine having nothing while my friends had $60 carafes of wine!!
Do you believe the cost of that?!
I mean, the price alone would have been enough to stop me from drinking wine at this show.
We had a FABULOUS time and I was glad that I still had a really fun time with my friends even though I was sober and they were drinking.
I highly recommend that you go see Sam Hunt if you ever get the opportunity. He is a great performer!
We didn’t get home until close to 1:00 A.M., so I still felt crappy the next day, but just from being tired.
While I was slightly disappointed that I broke my streak of not drinking, I was pleasantly surprised to realize I could have a few sips of beer in the name of a game, and yet not let that spiral into an out-of-control evening.
So it ended up being a good learning experience for me.
My plan is to finish out the week and the rest of the experiment strong.
Less than one beer in thirty days is still a huge accomplishment for me.
Five days to go…
