Holiday Detox Week Four

Week four?  What happened to week three?  Week three was spent off the wagon for the most part.  Not really drunk every night, but a little buzzed most of the time.  As usual I blame work.  Trying to get back into good habits, but a work schedule that changes from day to day via text message is waning on my sanity.  Unfortunately not a whole lot else going on.  I will be more entertaining soon.  Or as entertaining as I can be.

Holiday Detox Week Two

Detox was going great until this weekend.  I fell off the wagon Saturday night.  Four beers and three long islands later, I was not feeling so hot.  The next two days I was back on track, then somehow managed to drink a bottle of wine last night with dinner.  At least I have kept running and working out pretty regularly, so I may have cancelled out my backslides somewhat.  Detox on!

Holiday Detox Week One

After spending the last 2 weeks in a diabetic/alcohol induced coma, my post-holiday detoxification has begun.  After one week, I have been alcohol free and pretty much lived on Lean Cuisines.  So far so good.  Not a great week to stop drinking.  The first few weeks of the new year are notoriously rough in retail pharmacy due to the moron customers not realizing their insurance has changed, and that deductibles were not just something you do once in a lifetime.  An insane amount of transfers from Wags has also been brutal on my sanity.  The only thing good about sticking to the detox this week was that if I didn't have it in my mind that I was going to be doing it, I probably would have been doing shots at work out of prescription bottles.  I did land myself a sweet gig for roughly the next 2 weeks going to stores after they close and entering all the extra prescriptions.  Retail pharmacy actually isn't too bad once you remove dealing with people from the equation.  Also adding to the positive mental attitude of the detox, I was able to play golf today.  Not often that occurs in January, and on top of that we got to play for free.  Due to the lack of alcohol to keep me entertained over the next few weeks, I will try and blog a little more often.  Good for my brain, not so good for you.
