Going Sober

In #Forfeit, Daisy does it, so it seems churlish for me to make my character go through something I wouldn’t do myself. As of Wednesday, I’m going sober for October. *gulp*

I’ll admit to being slightly nauseous apprehensive at the idea – this will be the longest I’ve gone without something with a percentage written on the side since… well, since I started drinking aged about four sixteen. Even being pregnant didn’t stop me having the odd glass of wine. It’s going to be hell, right? But let’s focus on the positives:

  1. My skin will glow with untold radiance (because of all the water I’ll be drinking)
  2. My second book will be edited in superquick time (it’ll be a great distraction from wine cravings – oh the irony)
  3. I will lose weight (as I reckon 50% of my calories come from wine)
  4. I will be fitter (as I’ll be going to the gym when I can’t have wine)

And less selfishly, I will raise loads of money for charity. I really love my wine. This is going to be the toughest challenge I’ve faced since learning to walk again after a car crash fifteen years ago. So wallets out, I deserve your donations and your sponsorship.

Now, who’s with me? And if you’re not with me, please sponsor me!
