Yesterday was one of those days. I was doing good but I wasn’t. I drank and I drank pretty heavy. Two very large beers and a bottle of Red.
Why – I convinced myself I was honoring someone by drinking. It was one of those days that meant something and will always be a sad day – the anniversary of someone pacing away. That person loved his drinks – drinking put him in an early grave.
It’s so easy to find an excuse to drink – Why is it so hard to find an excuse not to drink? Why is not drinking so hard. I was only able to go 7 days before I hit a wall.
To go 365 days I’m going to need something different. I’m reading a book and implementing the EOS program or Traction hoping this makes a difference with my company. Maybe I should do something similar for drinking. I’m not the kind of guy that can just have one beer or one glass a wine. It turns into so much more. I need to try again. This blog seems to help – I should have written my thoughts yesterday – maybe that would have kept me out of the bar. This next time I’m craving the bottle – I’m going to write.
