Just a quick note to those considering the change to an Alcohol Free (AF) life: I was a gray area drinker for years. Consuming bottles and bottles of wine each week and functioning at a decent level. I got by. I faked our the world. But I wasn’t fooling myself. I wasn’t living my true authentic life.
Only 9 days sober and so far here are the positive effects of the AF life (and vegan/ whole food lifestyle:
1. I am sleeping better and wake up feeling refreshed instead of full or regrets and dragging my ass out of bed. Yep, I was often feeling like total crap in the morning after drinking the night before. Not anymore! I’m up and accomplishing my morning routine and smiling ear to ear doing it!
2. I have lost 4.5 pounds. Of course I was bloated. My face and stomach were so distorted. That’s changing significantly in only 9 days. Can’t wait to see what it does in 6 months!
3. Overall feeling of happiness. This is a “thing” that happens when you’re not putting toxins in your body. It’s a feeling that is so amazing. I find myself dancing and singing and just plain happy. This is way better than the wine dull buzz. I’m happy with it. Very happy!
4. More present in my family relationships. I am with my kids and husband fully present and engaged vs being a wino and being dull and absent. This is a great feeling and I want more!
I hope to inspire others who are on the same path as me. If you’re AF please share your experiences in the early days of your journey. I’d love to hear!
