Thought for the Day

Break the Status Quo: I was in the mega, super grocery emporium today and I noticed that EVERYBODY but me had booze in their cart. When I was drinking I ALWAYS had booze in my cart and I justified it by noticing that lots of other people ALWAYS did too. But as I’ve stopped hoping to see everyone else buying booze I’ve noticed that it’s quite common that people do their daily/weekly shopping WITHOUT buying a bottle or ten.

Yesterday I checked out the people around me in the endless rows of checkout lines and EVERYONE but me had bottles.

You can pretty much get drunk off the fumes in the air at this time of year.

Whether you’re on the beach in the sweltering heat in Australia or bundled up in the snowy north the booze is wrapped in gold paper with a bow on top and it’s most likely 25% off “such a deal!”

NOTHING sells like booze in December.

NOT drinking this month is a pure act of rebellion against the status quo but most of us thought we were feeding our rebellious spirit with booze anyway. Turns out Sober is the best way to win the war against the mundane for me.

Expect to be triggered in December …

Fight Back ! It’s worth it!

It’s a lot harder to get back up on the horse after a crashing fall than it is to stay there in the first place.

Today I will not drink.
