Get out of bed and have a banging head

Go back to bed
Waste the day feeling sick, headachey or just plain ill and off colourWaste a day that you’ll never get back
Have to deal with all the anxiety and stress you tried to hide from last night
Along with more anxiety and stress as booze is a depressant Alcohol and Anxiety
Oh and increasingly shitty health

Or

Do all of the above (2) and drink again the next day/ night, not to feel good anymore but so you stop feeling bad because now your body physically craves alcohol

YIKES!

When you think about what we actually get from alcohol the cost really does outweigh any benefit doesn’t it? Play the Tape Forward – Protect Your Quit

I like missing out on arguments, shitty decisions, regretful texts, poor sleep, wasted days, general body malaise, extra pounds from eating lots of junk just to feel physically better, broken friendships, lack of money, accidents, not being trusted or being a liability.

I don’t know about you but I want to miss out on all that and I deserve to miss out on drinking because of all it’s shitty consequences.

Perhaps FOMO for me might be slowly becoming “Fun Of Missing Out” 😃🥳🎊🎉

How about you?
I’m remembering I have my Dry July alcohol-free passport today!
