So this is something I have been thinking about for a while now.
I want to quit drinking.
Drinking is something I have always considered a huge part of my lifestyle. During my Uni years, I was a bit of a party girl and from then on, I am still the ‘fun’ friend. There’s nothing wrong with being known as that and drinking but as I have gotten older, I definitely don’t consider drinking as having fun.
Recently, I have had really bad hangovers. Not just a little headache but really scary anxiety about everything and anything. I won’t go into too much detail but anxiety to the point where you think you are going insane is not healthy.
Something I realised after my birthday weekend just gone, is I never used to feel this hungover but I always used to have a housemate or a family member around to keep me company so I don’t ever remember spiralling before.
Whatever the reason, I realise this isn’t how I want to live my life anymore! I went home super early on my b’day and even had a few friends concerned that I didn’t have a good night. The club environment just isn’t where I want to be anymore, and that’s okay.
I would love to hear if anyone can relate, your experiences with alochol or anything you decided to give up for the sake of your wellbeing.
