Fork in the Road

5 Aug

Fork in the Road

I was having a HUGE struggle with myself this evening walking home from work.

From about 5:30pm I knew I had no exercise plans (the way I usually distract myself from drinking) and *really* wanted to neck a glass (read: bottle) of wine.

I know that every sober day on this journey will be about choices. I *could* have a drink at any time, but I’m choosing not to.

I stumbled across this sign outside a bar on my way to the tube which made me crack a wry smile, despite my foul mood.

For the past year or so, this has been my drinking philosophy, and exactly the one I’ve been trying to get away from.

So I choose to eat some Mexican food as a treat, go home in a foul mood and ride the craving wave. And it worked!

Here I am, one week sober, about to go to bed. It’s telling in itself that I have had to struggle to get this far…

    A week is brilliant and was well deserving of a nice foodie treat! Just think of how good you are going to feel tomorrow when you wake up with a nice clear head ready for a new day and without a hangover or any guilt.

      Thank you Carrie!

      It was what I needed tonight- the urge to drink is always less after food… Ironically, I started drinking as an appetite supressant when I had an eating disorder. How things come full circle..!
