Dry February

January 29, 2018

I enjoy wine.  I really enjoy it.  I like going to wine tastings, I have visited many vineyards and have gone on a few “wine weekends”.  Wine, to me, is fascinating.  I love how different varietals pair differently with food; I love choosing my next bottle and of course, I love how it tastes.   Red wine is comforting in the winter and white wine is refreshing in the summer.  I normally have a glass (or two) with dinner.  Not every night but most nights.  A few years ago, I made the decision to abstain from all types of alcohol for an entire month.  It wasn’t really that difficult.  In fact, going without meat was a lot harder.  This year I have again decided to give up alcohol for a month.  My reasons are somewhat different this time.  I really want to examine my relationship with wine and after one too many hangovers – I think it may be time for a break.  I’ve noticed that the drinking is interrupting my sleep and causing me to wake up in the middle of night dehydrated.  I used to only drink on the weekends but somewhere along the line my consumption has increased.  So, I’m going dry in February.  I plan to record any changes that I notice in how I’m feeling and if I’ve lost any weight (which I doubt).  My hope is that at the end of the month I will reduce my overall consumption to be primarily on the weekends, if at all.
