Well I’m still going strong on “Dry January!” Last night at about 9PM my husband said “Let’s watch a movie, have some snacks and put a dent in the La Croix tonight!” 😂 And that we did….I’ve got multiple flavors in the fridge. It is really nice to have great support on a Sat night like that, makes it a ton easier not to think about alcohol.
I have been re-evaluating my bedtime routine also. Even before alcohol, I have never been able to stay asleep at night. I wake multiple times from every hour to some nights every half an hour. Some nights I cannot get back to sleep. It’s been this way for years. I simply cannot shut my brain off for the next day. Doctor prescribed me Ambien and it does wonders. I sleep for 5 hours almost guaranteed straight. Anyway, now that I have changed my bedtime to reading and low lights and all that recommended jazz, I want to slowly get so maybe I don’t take Ambien every night anymore. I have tried Melatonin several times and even a teeny tiny dosage gives me horrible and I mean horrible, scary dreams. Melatonin is not for me.
I decided yesterday since I woke up at 6am and was getting to bed about midnight, I’d try and not to take it. I woke up about every hour. I did go back to sleep fairly quickly thankfully. I had a couple dreams, but not bad ones. Thinking of trying essential oils in one of those diffuser things next. Maybe lavender?
Anywho, I’m off to get some groceries for the week! Have a good Sunday everyone!
PS-What a rambling blog! 🤷♀️ PSS-This is me last night making chicken wing pizza before our movie. 😋🍕
