Being dry

Saturday, May 19, 2007
So for a couple months now I've been pretty dry, choosing not to drink for a wide variety of reasons. I've been enjoying it very much, actually, since alcohol is a depressant for both moods and metabolisms. I've also been (perversely enough) enjoying depriving myself of something I love very much.

I like showing myself that I can stop something if I need to. That I'm stronger than my immediate wants, or my basic desires. Oddly enough, when I periodically don't do something I want to do, I feel like it makes it more okay when I do end up doing it.

I think I'm ready to be done.

I have several bottles of wine that I'm ready to enjoy. I don't need to drink on all occasions (indeed, since I'm currently broke and jobless that's more of a necessity than a choice) but I'm done denying myself. Time to enjoy!
