Hey! I hope you had a great weekend!
My sister came up and visited this weekend to celebrate her 24th birthday.
One sort of not-so-fun thing came out of the weekend though. A gnarly hangover.
I’ve been playing with the idea of a sober [insert month here] ever since I ready Andy Cohen’s book, where he talks about his sober January. A friend from school also mentioned a sober month, and it got me thinking. Part of me has wanted to do it just to see if I can. But another part of me is/was a little nervous about social situations, and not drinking while my friends are off having fun. Major FOMO moment I think.
But on the other hand, while drinking is fun (and we all know mama loves a good drink), its literally poison, and isn’t really doing me a whole lot of favors, ESPECIALLY considering this hangover that has be wanting to do NOTHING and be super unproductive. It would be nice to wake up on a Sunday morning and not feel like shit, right?
I also was watching Love and Hip Hop (don’t judge) and the doctor at a rehab center said that if you can’t give up a substance for a year, that you should consider rehab yourself.
So I am embarking on a sober June. I’m not going to be anti-social, and I’m going to continue socializing as I normally world, but instead of a beer, glass of wine, or vodka and soda (my favorite go-to), I’m going to reach for some water or so club soda.
I’m really interested to see how this endeavor affects my body, my energy levels, my skin, and see if I can do it.
Have you ever been just sick of alcohol?
Have you ever done a sober month?
