This will be my response any time someone offers me a drink for the next 60 days.
I’m sick of hearing people say it.
“I really need a drink right now.”
Why, so you can dull the reality that life sucks every once in awhile?
Accepting life’s misfortunes or dealing with trials can come to define a man. I for one have gotten little out of the drinking culture over the last year or so.
I originally thought of doing this in December of last year, as you can see from this post draft menu. Time to act on it.
As of today, I will immediately embark on a 60-day no alcohol challenge. The sauce is not a problem for me, however I continually fail to see the benefits of perpetual use.
I’ve been blowing money left and right for no reason. Hangovers have chopped entire days off the calendar.
Every Friday, I will post a report on estimated money saved, hangovers avoided, overall health, peer pressure denied.
I will end this challenge on Halloween, my favorite holiday. If however I decide that a booze-free lifestyle is more appealing, then I may just continue until Thanksgiving or Christmas. Hell, it would make Christmas actually mean something to me.
I will train myself to use the power of “no.”
