A Fun Little Experiment 

My therapist suggested I try a “fun little experiment” where I cut out all alcohol on the week days and log how it affects my mood and exhaustion levels. 

So now I find myself staring at the stocked bar in my kitchen on a Friday morning, wondering if holidays still count as week days. Or if ANY Fridays still count as weekdays. I mean it’s FRIDAY. That’s basically the weekend. Even if it’s morning. 

And that’s when I realize that this is no “fun little experiment.” 

It’s an intervention. 


Self Esteem

Whenever someone gives me a compliment, I automatically assume they are drunk.

I know, this doesn’t say much about my self esteem. So I am working on it.

I’m trying to get to a place where, when people say something nice to me, I truly believe they are being genuine. That I am a good person, and people can recognize and point out my positive qualities without being under the influence of a ton of alcohol.

And the fact that they’re always throwing up right after– that’s just a coincidence.
