I did it!

I got through the first big night out without having  a single glass of wine! 

I am SO proud of myself, cos now I know that if I can do it once I can do it again and again and again…

I went to a good friend for dinner last night and normally dinner at her place = loads of red wine and much fun and laughter.  I explained to her on Saturday that I was trying to give up wine (and alcohol in general) which she understood… (albeit reluctantly).  Anyhoo, I had a lot of temptation thrown my way last night, other friends who were at dinner kept trying to tempt me into having “just one glass”, “have half a glass” etc and I withstood the temptation.  One friend even jokingly (I think 😉 ) told me that I was putting my body into shock by not having the wine it was so used to having  (that was quite a good argument I dare say…)

Dinner was delish, the company was great and we still had much fun and laughter…. sans wine for me 🙂  Seems I am still a good time without the aid of my favourite full bodied social liquid…

I know it is still early days and I am not going to beat myself up if I do slip here and there but damn I felt good this morning when I woke up and realised that the first major socialising without wine hurdle was sailed over!!
