I can’t believe that I am almost there! This is the longest that I have been without some light alcohol relief for……….a long time 🙂 I really wanted to achieve this small goal because this is absolutely nothing compared to the continual small goals which cancer sufferers have to endure each and every day. This is all that I can do to help raise some money for Cancer Research’s work to continue. I can’t run marathons (I can’t run at all without the risk of a heart-attack!) so I think this is a brilliant, non-physical way for everyone to be able to take part. Obviously there are people who don’t drink but they seem to be giving up something else instead, like chocolate or sweets. So there is really no excuse. Everyone can do something to feel useful and help, whether it be for cancer or for one of the many, many other worthwhile causes. Maybe we should have something each month – Dry January, Free from chocolate February, No sweets November 🙂
I know that there are lots of people out there doing so much good work and fund-raising who don’t need a prod to help, but there are lots of people like me who need a little shove.
Unfortunately, the creative juices would seem to be directly linked to my lack of alcohol and have dried up the same as me 🙂 Ernest Hemingway may have had a point,
So to those merry (or not so merry!) souls who have one more week to go I wish you ‘happy abstaining‘.
