I made it…sort of!
Well, the day has arrived. Day 30.
Even though I cheated at the Sam Hunt concert and had a teeny tiny bit of beer, I still feel proud.
This past week was definitely challenging.
Feeling sad over the loss of someone plus having my husband away all week was hard.
It would have been easy to turn to wine.
But I prevailed!
In retrospect, I wish I hadn’t had the beer, because it is a blemish on these thirty days…but it did show me that I can have a little alcohol and stop drinking.
So I guess that was a valuable lesson.
Thursday (Day 30) was another day that I really wanted a drink.
I felt like I “earned” it for surviving the week without my husband.
In fact, I was thisclose to pouring a glass of wine right around 5:00.
I didn’t, though.
I didn’t want to quit on the last day.
Looking back on all the hard days and challenging moments when I really wanted a drink but didn’t ultimately have one is a good reminder that there’s really nothing I can’t get through while being sober (except a Sam Hunt concert I guess).
I’m not sure what my plans are for tomorrow.
It is a Friday and I know I’ll want some wine.
Will it be red?
Will it be white?
Will I surprise myself and not have any?
I am getting up early on Saturday so there’s at least some incentive to not drink too much.
We shall see.
Thank you for following me on this journey. I’m sorry I slipped up once, but hey– I’m human!
I’ll be sure to keep posting about my wine intake, good or bad, as well as a post about my conclusions after completing these 30 days.
Wish me luck…
