I had a visit from the wine witch yesterday. She snuck in, tapped me on the shoulder and suggested something. And I have to confess, that what she suggested sounded appealing.
I was reading a fabulous blog called Viatoday and she was saying how she was glad her weekly 'anniversary' falls on a Monday because as "the Mondays
multiply, at least I always have this to feel good about on Mondays – I
made it through the weekend without drinking and added another 7 days to
Now, my weekly anniversary is a Friday. I didn't plan it that way, it just happened. And it hasn't been a problem. Until yesterday. You see, after I read this about Mondays, the wine witch pointed out to me that Fridays aren't a very good day to have as your weekly anniversary. It means that you will always have the weekend to follow and that this could possibly be a challenge. She suggested that perhaps I should start again, this time on a Monday. And it would mean I could drink again for a little while.
Well, I have to admit that this took me by surprise!! I've been doing really well, or so I had thought. And all it took was one small thought to let the wicked wine witch back in. I am not, by the way, going to to give in to her offer, but I have to be honest and admit that I did consider it for a second. But now I am worried that the seed has been planted, and that in weaker moments I might give in. Mondays do sound more appealing. In my previous attempts, Mondays and Tuesdays have been my day 1's. Perhaps Fridays aren't that great.
See?!!! This is the twisted thinking that has started now that the stupid wine witch has made her visit. And I can't seem to make her go away. ARGGHH!!
Some advice right now would be greatly appreciated. I am going to go and have a shower and try and think about something else. Will check in later.
