It has been a fun journey though, and I learned some very important lessons about limits and consumption levels. Why am i breaking early? Oh, because I have a casual trip to Barcelona planned for next week. However, before this #soberOctober the initial momentum moving forward into a holiday would have seen me having a champagne on the plane, landing and boozing it up in the coastal city with wild abandon. But now? I don’t even think i’m going to enjoy my first drink. It’s my third or fourth time doing extended liquor breaks, and every time I come out the other side feeling vivaciously healthy, with a vocation for cutting down, and a voratiousness to reach higher levels without alcohol, period. Let’s just hope this time it sticks.
