Sober: Day 19

8th May 2020, Friday

We’d only shopped on Monday but we thought that we’d take advantage of our new found freedom and head over to the supermarket at Coral Bay as they have a homewares department there and I need a set of wine glasses – obviously not to drink wine out of! No, of the three provided with the apartment one had been put in the cupboard cracked and I also broke one while washing up a week or so ago.

I was very disappointed to find this morning that my Ulcerative Colitis seems to be flaring up again, the first time since 2014. A bit strange really when you think of all the past weeks and months i’ve spent abusing my insides with alcohol and had no problems. I think it is very likely to do with the amount of sugary snacks that i’ve replaced the alcohol with – cake, flapjack and biscuits. I need to be looking after myself and will return forthwith to a wholefood plant based no oil (WFPB) way of eating which, from experience, should do the trick.

So, we shopped and I was happy to find a really good selection of AF beers in the bigger supermarket. I got six to try, though that included one of the Carlsberg AF that I tried earlier in the week. What do you mean that doesn’t come under a WFPB diet? Well, sorry, but a girl can’t give absolutely everything up all in one go ๐Ÿ˜ฆ so i’ll see how it goes.

I finished reading Mrs D Is Going Without. It was a good book with a lot of really relatable things in it. Onto the next book now which I found after doing some research about Asperger Syndrome (yes that’s me) and alcohol. I couldn’t find too much on the subject but did find Asperger Syndrome and Alcohol, Drinking to Cope by Matthew Tinsley and Sarah Hendricks, this should hopefully be an interesting and insightful read.

Meaningful May: Set yourself a kindness mission. Give your time to help others. I took some time today to interact with, encourage and support some of my lovely online sober buddies ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Plant-based without oil? Oh, I have found the right blog! I’ve been trying to figure out how to drop oil (though I love olive oil) and help my liver.

    BTW, sorry for all the comments. When I find an interesting blog, I tend to read it from the beginning, if it’s not 10 years long. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Thanks for the comments, much appreciated!

      Check out Clean Food Dirty Girl run by my sober hero Molly Patrick sheโ€™s got tons and tons of free WFPB no oil recipes and also a great blog and Facebook community. She had her own struggles with the booze and is quite a few years sober now.
