I finished Jason Vale this morning. Clever guy. Although as I've said there were a few minor things which I would question, or don't agree with, all in all it is a very helpful book indeed. I think he is right. We've kicked it to touch so why suffer? I am going to try next week to notice every positive aspect that affects me personally with not drinking. Big or small, I am going to notice them and be grateful for them. Instead of the reverse, which won't help at all. I would be a total utter liar if I said I don't miss drinking. I do, it's only 2 weeks after all. But I have learned a great deal since 2 weeks ago and I am really looking forward to being the me I am meant to be. I have never drank tea or coffee in my life, simply because I don't like it. I did drink some chamomile tea when I was pregnant but that was for sleep and was over 20 years ago. Now I have some pommegranite and grape tea with my breakfast, and I even like it, and if anyone comes around who I used to drink with they will be offered a variety of teas, or coffee. I will no longer buy beers and wine for guests. It will be a bit of a dry argument around here.....haha....and once my friends realise that they may stop coming....but I know they are better friends than that. They just don't know yet that I have stopped.
I'm looking forward to going to see my brother in the hospital this afternoon, then I will come home and make a nice meal and see if the kids and their partners want to come and eat it. And I won't be half sloshed when they get here!!
I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing Sunday.
