Would You Choose Water Over Wine?

This is the last day of my teetotality experiment. What I learned is that these are the times when I really, really felt the sacrifice:

  • Out for dinner with the husband. Ordered food. Sitting there. Want something interesting to drink and get me in the mood.
  • Xopher brings an interesting beer home. Damn.

Less so, but still annoying: Sometimes while cooking dinner. Already happy to be cooking dinner, but want to accentuate it, celebrate, treat myself, and take the edge off my hunger. This though is the kind of mindless filler-drinking I wanted to stop.

Tomorrow I’m having a big beer. Hopefully will drink more mindfully going forward.
