About six months ago I use to drink at least one alcoholic beverage a night, sometimes two, but usually three? I can' t remember. At some point six months ago I realized that my lifestyle revolved around drinking needed to change. I didn't feel very great, it was time consuming, and well pretty darn expensive.
I started drinking once or twice a night, but my body was confused by the change and I hard time really grasping the idea of moderation, so I often drank to much. I felt even worse after the bi-weekly drinking nights. Then I moved to bi-monthly, monthly, etc.
Today I am not that excited about having a drink, but perhaps once a month, I indulge. This is because I live in the heart of the alcohol culture. It is was 20 somethings about to be thirty somethings do. I just needed to figure out how I can fit in without compromising my health. Today, I might have one or two drinks on a special night. I eat food, drink lots of water. I bring self-awareness to the occasion and well I feel fine. No big feat right? Wrong! I have always been an "all or nothing" kind gal... and now you can call me Ms. Moderation.
