Well, last night I drank. My brother hasn’t been here in 6 years and he is in town. It was a great time and I’m not saying I’m mad at myself or anything however, I am not happy with the way I feel this morning. I absolutely love my mornings and it’s 10am and I have not accomplished or enjoyed anything. I could have easily just had my AF drinks but I caved after such a long good run. I know I am fun without alcohol. Took me awhile to realize that but at 47 years old, I am certain of it.
Onward and upward I suppose. I didn’t drink a ton that my day is a wash however everything seems a chore this morning.
Just updating for anyone who is contemplating drinking again…..it sucks the next morning! Starting a new long run this Sunday morning with a better appreciation for my AF drinks! Thank you all for being with me and my ups and downs with alcohol! I really appreciate it!
Always with you honey. It’s often on my mind to have a try again but my trick now is .. have a AF drink to start and then see how I feel. It seems to work in keeping me in check! If you had a good night and can go without for a stint now then that’s fabulous. That’s what I’d do if I could! Sending love to ya! I finally managed a post after months so I’m pleased with that!! 🥰🥰🥰
I think we commented on each others blogs at the same time! ❤️ I absolutely loved reading your update!!! I am totally going to go with your idea of starting with an AF drink and see how I feel. I bet I will be just fine! Yeah it was a good night and all, and I didn’t go way overboard but I’m not happy with myself this morning. My AF mornings are much better! So here I am, starting on another long run again! Good Lord. Thank you for always being there for me!
I find that it takes the psychological yearning away and I enjoy the taste of the AF drink and think ‘actually I’m ok without’. It can take a bit of will power to choose it over wine but I tell myself if I still want wine I’d booze afterwards then that’s fine.
So far so good! 😆
Really great thinking! Thank you so much for commenting and helping me keep on track! 😘😘😘
File it, learn from it, and help others. A big check mark and onward we go my beautiful friend. I often learned the hard way too. Big hugs and high fives for dusting yourself off. I believe in YOU😊
Thank you, thank you, thank you Dwight!! I really felt I needed to tell you all even though I feel a bit defeated about it. I really appreciate your comment!! 🥰 it’s so encouraging when people believe in you!! ❤️
Glad to hear you’re not discouraged and that you realize how you want to feel, how you like to feel and doing more of that! 🌟💛
Thank you Collette! This is perfectly said. Of course yesterday morning I said to myself “Why Jackie, why?” but I quickly turned that thinking around looking forward to feeling good every morning. Very happy I feel great this morning for a long work today. I hope you have a great day!! 😍
I can totally relate. It’s like… sometimes you just need that reminder (in the form of a hangover, ha!!) that it’s really not worth it.
Exactly! Plus I know I’ve come such a long way from when I started that I can’t be discouraged. I can tell myself “well that wasn’t worth a hangover “ and move on. Thanks for commenting and I hope you are doing good too!!! 😍😘❤️
