Gosh I haven't posted for,,,,, er a while. Sorry about that. Sober Mummy and her epic new book has continued to keep me on the AF path and life has been pretty steady. Still have the blues but I am SO MUCH happier not drinking. So so sosososososo much happier. Which means the family is too.
I would never be where I am now if I was still drinking & drugging - we are amazingly on a 3 month sabbatical in Sri Lanka! Woohoo.
Slight panic though: NO NON ALCOHOLIC BEER TO BE FOUND
Now I've become quite reliant upon my daily becks blue... and assumed, because every other country I've visited including India seemed to be up to speed on our sober brewery needs. But not Sri Lanka. WTF?
After a sweaty 15 hour journey here all I wanted was an ice cold AF beer. Instead I had a sticky fruit punch (I'm so spoilt!) and watched my husband down his cool crisp beer with hatred boiling my blood. Poor him. But more poor me.
Anyway. I've adapted to Fever Tree Tonic with lime and ice. Not the same but I guess my message is... careful not to become too reliant on something (aka addicted in my case!) because I damn nearly had a real beer. All I know is.... I NEVER regret NOT drinking, but pretty much every time I drank / drugged I regretted it.
