29th April 2020, Wednesday
Awake at 7.15am, read for an hour in bed, what luxury! Excited to be on Day 10, sounds daft but I feel like I’ve achieved something big. I know i’ve done ten days previously when doing ‘Dry January’ or ‘Sober October’ but those times I had the mindset that “this is just temporary, get to the end of the month then drink again.” This time I don’t intent to start again, even after the 100 Day Challenge is over, I want life-long sobriety now.
Off out for a walk, nicely hydrated, I’m still drinking 1.5L of water a day – maybe that is why my skin is looking so good this last week (i’m getting younger haha!). Home, catch up with Coronavirus news, Scrabble, read, drink coffee, lunch, do a bit of work online. Catch some rays – not for long it’s really hot outside, well, about 25C which is hot to someone who normally resides at pretty much 57 degrees north. Cooked dinner, pretty happy and relaxed about not drinking. Put in an online order to the Wise Bartender website for AF beers and AF wines – asked for it to be delivered to my neighbour back at home so that it’s ready and waiting for me when I (eventually) get back home.
DD2 and GS2 went home from hospital this afternoon, a big relief.
