Yes it’s been 40 days (as a lapsed Catholic I quite like the reference) since I last had a drink. I really think this is a HUGE accomplishment for me. In fact I don’t think I have ever, in my adult life, gone this long without a drink.
It was hard the first week or so, but not now. Now I don’t miss it at all. Mind you, I’m looking forward to drinking a bottle of Dom Perignon with Mr Man at Christmas (and maybe a glass or two at New Year).
Whilst Dom is incredibly expensive, I’ve worked out that with the money I have saved, I can buy at least 6 bottles. Now that’s what I call an incentive to save.
