Looking forward to taking a break from alcohol - and getting out of the rut of a drinking cycle? Join our free Sober October challenge, which begins October 1!
For years, I was caught up in the following cycle:
I would drink wine nearly every night as a “treat” for making it through the day
Slowly, over time, my drinking would increase
I would start feeling like crap and be tired of feeling tired
I’d stop drinking for a few days and feel better and then repeat the cycle.
Someone recently asked me if it was OK to take a few days off and then have a beer.
For me, I keep on realizing more and greater benefits the longer I go without alcohol. The cycle above was leaving me in a constant state of anxiety and disappointment.
Holly from Hip Sobriety asks the question “Is alcohol getting in the way of your dreams in this one life you have been given?”
For me, it was. I have more energy, more enthusiasm and feel like my daily wine consumption was preventing me from doing what I wanted. And that is to feel good in my skin.
Does this cycle look familiar to you? I have been working to create daily content for a FREE Sober October Challenge. I’d love to have you join me if you’re looking to enjoy an alcohol-free October.
