Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to drink wine. Sometimes to excess. When I began the Clean Program, I knew that giving up wine altogether, even for a few months, was going to be tough. When I caved last week and had two glasses of wine, i began to wonder if I had an addiction problem.
So last night, when I went to my favorite bar with my favorite drinking buddy and only drank seltzer with lime, I was elated. I can do it. The bigger issue is, do I want to.
I am so much more fun when I drink. I get loud and bawdy and funny. I am often the life of the party. Ask anyone. Except my husband, who dislikes the me I become when I drink. I love that me.
