I Stopped Drinking for the month of November, Here’s What I Learned…

1) Booze is a bad way to cope with stress

  • Better rested
  • Less grumpy
  • Making smarter food choices
  • Better able to keep track of my task lists
  • Better able to resist the ‘trash-fire’ model of the world that says we are all doomed (for the most part… I’m not an emotionless robot!)

3) After the first week, I stopped thinking about drinking
