Day 14 - Half done!

I'm more than half finished my cleanse already. My husband said this morning: "I can't believe how quickly it's gone by." And this next two weeks will be even faster. I know that from experience.

Plus I got another sober weekend behind me! This one included a family barbecue which, to be honest, wasn't all that much different with a Starbucks frappucino and good ol' H20 as it is with wine and vodka coolers. When you've been cleansing regularly, you'll see that the difference between being sober and drinking isn't as great as it used to be. Your whole attitude about - and response to - alcohol will change. You won't need as much. You won't want as much. Because you're not always trying to stave off that dreaded dopamine crash. Plus you can be more relaxed in general because you know you're making positive progress with something that used to haunt you.

By the way, they opened a century-old crate of Scotch whisky on Friday. It had been trapped in the ice of Antarctic after the renowned explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton left it in his hut. My hubby's a Scotch connoisseur. Bet he'd love to have been there.
