Day 18 nearly over…

…and I’m on the train coming back from my rehearsal. London is still eerily quiet; I reckon many Londoners are doing Dry January.

I find I have still not done much reflecting on not drinking. I hope that is not a bad thing. For the moment, I am just not drinking, but I think I’ll eventually need to do more work on the whys and wherefores. But in the past, I have sometimes found that over-thinking it in the first few weeks can be off-putting (for me), and can put ideas about drinking in my head. This time, I’m avoiding all social events which may involve drink, not stepping foot inside a pub, and just lying low.

  1. The thinking will be there. Just get through the days. And right now you have to wrap yourself
    In a bubble! Good stuff!

  2. I think you’re right – just one foot in front of the other… There will be plenty of time for thinking and analysing, though please do your thinking here rather than alone!

  3. You don’t have to reflect right now, all you have to do is not drink…and whatever that looks like for you is perfect!!! I have found that some sober podcasts, books, and other material tend to be triggery and a bit depressing…so I’ve accepted that I don’t have to do those things…we just have to do what feels right for us, and you are doing that!!!
