I think I just made myself sound and look like an alcoholic... Gotta have a sense of humour! :D For the record, I'm not although I do like a drink from time to time. I also like taking time off everything once in a while. Not just from drinking, sometimes from exercising, eating certain foods etc... It's fasting really but from drinking or whatever else it could be: taking time off from being hard on myself, judging... You get my drift.
This month I am taking time off alcohol. I usually do that once or twice a year. I am not a big drinker on a day to day basis, drinking is definitely a social thing for me. I don't have alcohol in the house and I never have been one to come home from work and have a glass of wine or a beer; Something which is absolutely fine but that I just don't do. Nonetheless, I can hold my drink when I go out and after a 10 days holiday on the island with a fair share of drinking involved I thought it would be nice to give it a rest in October. Not just alcohol but everything that can come with it sometimes. As well as a social drinker, I am also a social smoker. I stopped last December again and I was doing great (not thinking about smoking or not smoking) but, at the end of August, I had one with a beer and that was it. I let myself be in that space in September (I don't beat myself up over many things) with the firm intention that I would stop again in October. So there you have it, I am cleansing my system for 30 days and I am really looking forward to it.
To start off this 30 day cleanse I am fasting today, just drinking water and herbal teas to give my system a reset. Here is to day one :D
