Dry Day Ten

It's been ten days since I had a drink.
For the most part, it's been pretty good. I'm still hanging around drinkers, and even mixing a few for other people. Just none for me.
But 5 or 6 times a day, I still think "goddammit, I need a drink."  The hot weather isn't helping - i pass so many patios on my way home each night...

It's not like when I quit smoking four years ago - at that point, I contemplated tearing off someone arm to suck the nicotine from their fingers. But I'm still craving an ice cold beer, or a G&T, or a gimlet, or even a glass of scotch (and I'm not a whisky drinker).  So far it's water, Pepsi, and i may start on Sprite soon.


  1. Ten days is great! I think they say it takes a month to break a habit (I can't remember where I read that) and you are well on your way.

  2. Drink lots of water, it will help flush your system. And give yourself a high five, you're doing great!
