Yesterday was day 5 of my year of living sober. It was a Tuesday.
Last night I had a slight headache. It wasn’t too bad though. It was was nothing compared to the cluster migraine I had a bit over a week ago after bingeing at a wedding on a stinking hot day. I’m pretty sure that migraine was a direct result of becoming dehydrated over the wedding weekend. It was also probably the straw that broke my camel’s back of resistance to giving myself a complete break from booze for a while.
That migraine turned out to be a good thing: I committed to…
A YEAR OFF BOOZE!
And I’m already five days down
Now for ‘Today’s Drinking Game‘ (proudly brought to you by Panadol: booze-hounds favourite over-the-counter pain killer).
It’s called ‘No News Is Good News’. To play, simply watch the News or read The Paper and as soon as you come across a story you find upsetting or which makes you angry put on the kettle and make a cup of peppermint tea.
With or without honey it’s very relaxing.
Little Booze Joke Number 5:
Q. Why did the binge drinker cross the road?
A. To throw up.
