Today marks 100 days since I had my last drink of alcohol.
And I feel great!
Obviously, drinking is a huge part of our culture. We drink while we watch sports, eat a nice meal or head out for happy hour after a hard day of work.
But over the last 10 years, as I’ve grown a bit older and clinging to the edge of my athletic years, I’ve taken a few breaks from drinking and it always had a positive effect.
This includes weight loss, better sleep, less moodiness and a much, much happier wife. And as the saying goes, happy wife happy life.
This doesn’t mean I don’t miss a delicious glass of wine especially with a beautiful meal, but it’s about a lifestyle change. One that will result in a much healthier and thus enjoyable journey as I get older.
I continue to meditate and practice yoga – both which reinforce how good I feel without the booze.
And my spiritual evolution continues with more clarity.
It’s not for everyone, but it’s working for me.
