What’s a boy to do next? Tomorrow will be 31 weeks since quitting booze.
It’s become easy to not drink and I get almost no cravings or temptations. I sometimes get FOMO when we’re travelling or in social situations – but that’s about wanting to take part and try new things. It’s not a craving for the sensation of being drunk.
I’m doing really well on the sober front… which leaves me thinking ‘what next?’.
It’s a good place to be. It feels like I’ve worked hard, I’ve had some time to rest – and now I’m starting to get bored and restless.
Time to get back into running? Take up abseiling? Embrace yoga? Start a pottery class?
There’s lots of possibilities when you’re not trapped in a toxic routine.
