So couple months ago I made a decision to join all those others and try and go sober for October for Macmillan Cancer research. And I bloody lasted only a week. For me I suppose that’s quite an accomplishment, besides obviously when I was pregnant. I don’t really have an excuse, I did have a pretty nightmarish time with an ex client of mine, but besides that, and maybe seeing my family where I did buy myself a golden ticket, I still managed to fail going sober for October spectacularly.
It’s terrible really, I should’ve really pushed myself, but I kinda just gave into the wine. I should have pushed myself further than ever seeing as I have managed in the past to not drink at all, but I couldn’t seem to control myself. So one glass of nice chilled New Zealand Marlborough and boom, a glass of wine (or two) after my day just became the norm again last week, which considering I don’t drink every night anyway was terrible really.
It’s a great cause, and hopefully next year when I do participate again, I can really go the full 31 days alcohol free I’m not giving after a week. In the meantime I did manage to raise about £45-£50 for my terrible effort. I hope that when I do take part next year I’ll be able to give it my all, raise more money and really out to myself.
