So booze 🍷, wine in particular has plagued me . So I thought I would find it helpful to put pen to paper to think about what I don’t like about alcohol and me . 😐
1/ it has made me fat . When I drink I eat crap , I eat crap while I am drinking and the next day .
2/ I look bloated
3/ it isn’t a good role model for my daughters . They don’t see me drunk but do see me with glass wine in hand frequently
4/ I frequently don’t remember going to bed
5/ I sleep badly often waking up around three am feeling anxious
6/ I constantly feel tired because I am always semi hungover
7/ I have lost motivation at work
8/ I constantly think about what time I can have a glass of wine
9/ I have Crohn’s disease and will make myself ill if I continue to drink as I have been
10/ I have no off switch x however my good intentions once I start to drink I drink till the alcohol is gone or until I pass out .
11/my memory is poor
12/ I can feel generally anxious
13/ I have experienced depression and in anti depressants but actually don’t know if it’s alcohol or a genuine depression and anxiety disorder .
So what do I hope to achieve from stopping alcohol
1/ better sleep
2/ reduced anxiety
3/ more patience as a mum
4/ happier person
5/ improved physical health
6/ more positive attitude
7/better role model for daughters
9/ remembering what I have read / watched
10/ more energy
11/get a true idea of how my symptoms of crohns are
12/ improved skin
13/ lose weight
14/ improve memory
15: more money 💰.
