Bonfires & alcohol.

Tonight we are having our first bonfire in a long time. For me, bonfires go with alcohol. That’s what I have always done. I noticed myself thinking of how having a couple drinks would be nice with a bonfire. But, we all know it won’t be just a couple. I have made sure there’s no alcohol in the house so I know I won’t drink tonight but I feel a little bummy, like I’m “missing something.” It’s really annoying me I feel this way. I have noticed the time period before doing something I normally would do with alcohol that I spend too much brain time contemplating the pros and cons of drinking. Seems when the event or whatever actually happens I’m just fine with not drinking and don’t feel I’m missing anything at all. It’s just frustrating but one thing I do know is I will enjoy that bonfire without alcohol tonight! 👍🏻😁

    Good for you! Yep, we spend so much time anticipating and worrying about doing the occasions sober and then usually it’s absolutely fine and we are so happy the next morning. Or even that same evening when I’m snuggled in bed with a cup of tea knowing I’ll have a lovely sleep. Have fun my friend ❤️❤️

  2. Hope you have a fun sober evening Jacquelyn! 💞💞

  5. I will tell you, that although the thoughts pop up once in awhile, they get less and less. Up north at cabins with friends, lots of nightly fires, never missed drinking.
    Was happy with laughter and the s’mores!

    • Oh that sounds wonderful, Wendy! I did totally enjoy my bonfire and loved my Sunday morning sausage/egg/cheese McMuffin with coffee I made hubby and me! ( Something I never would have enjoyed if I had drank the night before.) Thanks for all your encouragement!! ❤️
