Or did I?
At the start of the month I attempted to not have a drink of alcohol for an entire month, simply to prove to myself that I could do it if I wanted too. I’m not an alcoholic but I do enjoy having some drinks socially during hockey games and on weekends.
On February 12th I decided I had gone long enough and had my first beer for the month, I planned on just having the one, some wings and to chill out. That night went from taking it easy to an all out party. Me and a few friends went out to a crazy bar and had a great time…that’s pretty much the only details I want to share on here.
Saturday and Sunday (single girls wanting to party on Valentines) nights turned out similar. Straight up, I had an amazing weekend.
So do I think breaking my challenge to not drink for an entire month was a failure? Not really. I didn’t drink the many times that I went out with my hammered friends, it was actually hilarious to see how everyone is when you’re sober. I didn’t drink during the super bowl which is usually a shit show. I held myself back pretty easily, but realistically I know I can drink whenever I want or don’t want without any issue.
All in all I am glad I did this and even more glad I broke off early.
