Today I have made a decision to stop drinking alcohol. Full stop. I don’t drink spirits anyway so it is the habitual beers, bottles of lager beer and occasional wine that is being put on hold for now. Nothing to do with too many blinding hangovers as I don’t drink that much to get them. It’s more to do with my health and reducing the bloated belly that I have acquired gradually over the last five or so years. That coupled with a relatively sedentary lifestyle. Who am I kidding - very sedentary lifestyle!!
So the benefits will be: more much needed money in my wallet; a healthier looking tummy; less trips to the bottle bank; a less furry tongue and constant cold and a generally better well-being.
I also intend to do more exercise like cycling and some stretching. I would say more walking but I am currently suffering from a poorly heel with plantar fasciitis and despite the tablets and heel supports it can strike at any time with its crippling dull ache.
less beer bottles in the bottle bank and more in the actual bank.
I’ve been thinking about this for a while and kept intending to do something about it. Today is the day the new regime starts. Wish me luck.
