What A Difference A Day Makes….

24 little hours…..

Well good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

Today I feel SO much better it is quite unreal the difference between the two days.

Yesterday made me realise that even though I had ton’s of fun on Saturday night, the payback was too much for my head to take and the resulted wasting of a day has led to one of the biggest decisions I feel I shall ever make.

I can pretty much state that I do not ever want a repeat of the excess alcohol and to that end I think my days of “going out” drinking are pretty much over. I shall possibly still partake of the odd refreshing cider when out on a walk but I think it is pretty safe to say that I shall steer well clear of the occasions that might lead me into temptation as the heavy night of the weekend did.

That decision made and fairly well set in stone I am happy to report that I shall be returning to my pre-drink status of abstinence. This is mainly driven by the fact that I was SO tired yesterday and still am to a certain degree today!

I remember when drinking could make me feel bad for so long that it almost hurt. That I would feel sick for such a long period of time that I thought it might never pass but this time around I suppose because I had abstained for so long that my body was able to cope with the poisons I put into my system, I just need to to flush them out and the only thing I could do for the tiredness was to sleep.

This afternoon therefore I shall probably go out for a walk – if the weather doesn’t change as it is so dramatically expected to and I shall use the countryside to to revitalise my ailing sleepy self.

So until such times as I am feeling like the man I know I can be, I shall simply say enough for now and I hope you pop back soon.

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    I too hate the way alcohol makes me feel the next day….even if I only drink a couple drinks…I have limited my intake to an occasional margarita…and when I say occasionally I mean maybe twice in a year…in fact I can not remember the last time I drank…and funny, that is how yeast products react in my body….I call it a carb hangover when I indulge in bread….my body really does not process yeast products well…so I have banned them from my diet…even though I was raised on bread…and I love it…it doesn’t love me….hope you had a fantastic walk…kat

    Moderation in all things. There is a world of difference between a cool cider after a long walk and caning the cocktails or indeed any other alcoholic drink. It’s a good decision to step away from the booze. Not an easy one and I am certain that you should not say never because in my experience that just encourages the demon to pop up and goad you. Do exactly what you plan – drink very moderately and occasionally and appropriately and never again may you have the breath of a dog, the head of lead and the stomach of doom. Bon courage mon ami xx

    Glad you are feeling a bit more like yourself ! Yip, those nights, can take it out of one…personally I can’t do it…one late night and it takes me literally days to feel normal again…not worth it especially if alcohol is involved ! I hate wasting precious days…oh well, such is life….Moderation, moderation, moderation πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
