I was a binge drinker so while I didn’t only drink at the weekends, when I stopped drinking the weekends were the hardest part.
Today I woke up at 8, naturally after a decent night’s sleep. No gasping awake because of dehydration, no wondering how or when I got to bed, no feeling sick, no craving for gross greasy food, no hangover!
The weather was pretty miserable so this morning I chilled out on the sofa with some tea, watched TV, chatted to my boyfriend and had some breakfast.
Met a friend this afternoon, did some local sightseeing with cafe stops to avoid the worst of the rain. Good chats, lots of laughing, sharing some struggles. Went for dinner and then watched a live poetry set at a theatre.
Just on my way home, might do some yoga or might just go to bed.
This is basically my idea of a perfect day (apart from the rain), and if I was drinking it would have gone very differently. I probably wouldn’t be meeting this friend because she doesn’t drink. I would have argued about politics. I would have spent too much money. I would have missed half the show or made a fool of myself, if I’d have gone at all. I’d be up all night, make myself ill and probably bail on my Sunday plans.
What’s your perfect Saturday? And if you didn’t do that today, why not?!
