On Alcohol

In solidarity with a friend who is doing Dry July, I thought I'd give the whole 'not drinking' thing a go.  Not for a whole month, mind you - just long enough to convince myself that I could give it up completely if I wanted to.  Which I don't.  But I could.

So it's only been five days, but some of the things I'm supposed to have noticed in my new alcohol-free life are:
  • better quality sleep
  • weight loss
  • more money
  • more energy
  • greater mental clarity
  • the shakes
The things I have actually noticed are:
  • my house could do with a good spring clean.  Especially the windows
  • there is no reason Hey Hey It's Saturday should make me teary
  • the new Doctor Who is not that cute after all
  • I don't do an uncanny impression of Alicia Keys
  • Nobbys nuts are tasty, but they are not a satisfying meal replacement
  • the shakes
I think five days is long enough to prove a point.


  1. You are such a dag. I love it.

  2. I'm really not sure that "the shakes" are a good thing to be noticing. Seriously.

  3. Maybe not. But they are probably actually induced by Canberra's -3 degree nights!

  4. Sarah and I thought we'd do a belated dry July commencing on the 8th.

    I'm on my second glass of red as I write this.
