Oh no! I deliberately drank two glasses of wine… yep, now I'm finished. Last Tuesday my mother turned 69. It's been a rough year for her, so we were happy to be able to celebrate this birthday. And then I wanted a glass of wine. And I did. And then one more.
There were two voices in my head, one said loser. The other was a bit nicer, who said: Phew, you're doing a great job and after January you can continue with only drinks at parties and parties, so go ahead :) This is the same voice that makes excuses not to go to sports and so on. Still, I listened to that voice… but I'll just continue pausing (and add two demerits).
In my case, taking further breaks not only means not drinking alcohol, but also extra moments of rest in the bath, going to bed on time and walking. Enjoy the month.
And have you also accidentally / on purpose consumed an alcoholic snack? It'll be fine. You just pick up the thread again. And remember: you do it for yourself, so be kind to yourself!
