SoberOctober: Day #1

Well, there it is. Day 1 of no drinking is done. Well, almost, but I shouldn’t think I’ll crack now – mouthwash residue doesn’t count, right?


I did two things this morning to kick start my motivation:

1. I weighed myself. I shan’t disclose the figure – I’d defo need a stiff brandy for that, but let’s call it x. I’m hoping that by Nov 1st my weight will be x-14. A stone in a month? Maybe a tad ambitious, but half should be easy enough.

2. I took a selfie. I haven’t disclosed it as I look so rough it’s untrue. (Our bathroom lighting is particularly harsh in the morning.) But I hear stories of people looking ten years younger when they give up the sauce – it’s all that Evian drinking.

And for the next thirty mornings, I’ll do the same. Hopefully, when my skin is glowing with a never-before seen radiance, I’ll be brave enough to post Before and After shots – and maybe they’ll give you a reason to hop on the wagon with me.

But day one ticked off. And I’ve raised £136 so far.

Not a bad day’s sobriety.
