After a few days of junk food and drinks I feel like crap.
I have not been drunk for years but absolutely drink over the recommended weekly amount for women. I enjoy some wine with certain foods and also like having a few rums especially on holiday or at the weekend.
I think people who suffer from anxiety and/or depression really have to watch how much they drink. It would be tempting just to drink everyday because in the short term it can make you feel less anxious/depressed. Slightly longer term (even the next day) you realise that alcohol is in fact a depressant. I also find because It makes me tired I am less likely to do things I need to to to make my anxiety better.
I have decided to have a wee detox for a month to let my liver recover a bit..after that I am going to try to only have a few drinks at the weekend.
I think these types of detoxes are good, well for one it’s good to give your body a chance to recover. Secondly, It’s good to know that psychologically we are not dependent on alcohol (even If we only drink at the weekend we could still ‘need’ to do that). I have a history of alcoholism in my family and this is something I like to keep my eye on.
So for a month starting today I am ‘On the wagon’! … Oh and also If I see another take away again I will go mental!! So no more crap food either!! (Honestly I could just eat a big plate of Brussel sprouts!!)
This is my happy thing for today ..It’s one of those happier over time things too.
Well I think after my holiday I am all caught up now!! See you tomorrow!!
Love and light! xxLisa
