So far so good, but this afternoon/evening we took down the Christmas tree and decorations and I was hit with a strong pang to have a glass of wine while doing it. Prior to going dry, it would be pretty much unheard of that I would do a chore, near the evening, that was holiday-related, on a Saturday no less, without a glass of wine. Unheard of!
Once done, I began making dinner. An even stronger pang to drink hit. My husband, who drinks a lot less than me, but is doing dry January anyway said it hit him too. I mean its Saturday night! But we didn't drink, and once I ate, the urge pretty much passed.
Still, I am not feeling myself. I am manic at times. For example, I organized the attic before I could even start putting away the Christmas decorations. This is Totally unlike me as I've never organized the attic before. I also have not been sleeping well. I feel very restless and not that magical good feeling I was hoping for so far. I know this process is more complicated than "don't be hungover, feel proud and great." I know all this, but of course it would feel good to get some of that good stuff now. Making it workthough, will not drink today, no way. Not today. And I look forward to tomorrow morning.
