Dry January has come to an end and that is grounds for celebration and a second blog in the same week. Although I thought I would feel some sort of enlightenment or divine intervention, I feel relatively the same. I'm still as tired as I was before I gave up drinking for 31 days, but I am down almost eight pounds and I haven't changed my diet or have given in to the gym, so I guess that's a win. As fun as it was to do things without drinking, I am ready to hit the bars tomorrow. I think dry January has lessened my want to drink, but maybe not for a whole month again. More like a weekend here and there. I am not excited to see my bar tab after this weekend, but I am excited to get back to Sona because the bartenders probably think we've blackballed them, especially since we forgot to mail their Christmas card.
One thing I have noticed in the 31 days of sobriety is that if I am going to try and find the man lucky enough to be my future husband, I definitely won't do that from my couch. We spent four long weekend nights binge watching Netflix and murder documentaries but we haven't been able to put ourselves out there, except for on dating apps. (To which I will add that going on dates sober is weird and I did not participate in that. Especially after Henry....). February is already blooming into a fun month, and I can't wait to let that first drop of alcohol drip into my veins.
I'll keep this one short and sweet. I just wanted to celebrate (and document) 31 days sober. We did it, unlike so many who try. We sat in on weekends and played board games and hung out together. We went to trampoline parks and watched football and shopped and got to make the most of our Sunday's without a hangover. We made it to the finish line and are ready to celebrate with one of the many bottles of champagne we have accumulated over the course of the month. Celebrate with us tomorrow at Sona, or raise a glass from the comfort of your own house. Cheers bitches, we made it 🎉
