My Goal #18 for 2017 is to have zero alcohol related fights or issues. Its 9 days into the year and I have already screwed that up. Actually I only made it 7 days into the year. I drank WAY too much over the weekend and really embarrassed myself and my boyfriend. I have spent the past two days hungover and feeling guilty. What a waste of life! So I have decided to cut alcohol out of my life for awhile. I'm not sure how long I am going to do this. I don't have a definite plan but trying to moderate was NOT working. Before things go too far I am just going to abstain. I don't know exactly what this means. I'm not sure if I have a legitimate alcohol problem or just a lack of control.
These are the things I am going to try to figure out.
A lot of what I do for fun involves alcohol. Whether its meeting a friend for happy hour or going out for dinner and drinks or going on the boat or to the beach. I know alcohol doesn't have to be present at these things but for my group it typically is. It will take a little adjusting to get used to not drinking but I know I can do it. Also, I would like to find a few new non-alcohol related things to do. I feel like I am heading in the correct direction. I feel like this is what I need to do for me right now. I hope my boyfriend will be supportive and encouraging. 99% of the fights that my boyfriend and I have had involve alcohol so I think this will bring a lot of peace to my life. That is what I am looking forward too.
