Absolutely Insane



I don't know what had come over me yesterday, but I think the guilt of not attending church services for Ash Wednesday had caused me to think irrationally. I mean, really. No alcohol? For 6 weeks?

When did I realize this was probably an irrational decision? A part of me realized this right after clicking "publish post". The rest of me realized it this evening after a 13 hour day at school with an evening of conferences. All I want right now is a cold beverage.

Dumb.

I might have to just work on being a better person, because there is no way I am going to be able to go 6 weeks without a single sip of beer. Let's just be realistic here.

A friend (and colleague -- English teacher) of mine gave up alcohol for Lent last year. She said that was NOT an option EVER again. Good luck with that though.

Nah, you can do it!! LOL!!! I spent all night last night in a bar full of beer, without touching a drop :-) and I'm SOOOOO weak :-)

ha! well abstaining from alcohol means giving up the sacramental wine on sundays. and you can't do that now can you? :)

You are allowed to change your mind! Have a drink for me.

Longest I've abstained is the 3 weeks of taper prior to a marathon (yep, I do it then!!) but I think it's easier to give up candy or chocolate than alcohol!!

I'm glad you're coming back to your senses...a life without beer, for any period of time, is just not a life worth living :)

Forgiveness is a beautiful thing. :>)

Thanks for the details about how you work. I am so interested in all of this now. Right now we are learning about learning disabilities.

My buddy gives up wine and liquor and JUST drinks beer...maybe you could do something similar!

Give up crack, whores, and drive by shootings. Anyone can give those things up.....I've been clean for a year now :-)

Annette said...

You can do it! If you can train consistently for a tri, you can give up alcohol for 6 weeks. You're a strong woman!
