Dry January Day 2



It is 6pm on day 2 and I have not really been hit by any strong urge to drink yet.  My hangover from New Year's Eve is receding and I am feeling good and healthy.  I have cleaned and organized the house and taken my kids to the park.  I have off from work today (its a Thursday) and so far, my motivation is strong.  That said, if I was not doing dry January, I might be sipping wine while dinner prepping and likely regretting it.  I'm glad I'm not!
