Play the movie to the end…

I have a guest blog on MindBodyGreen today – if you want to have a read, then please follow this link;

http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-6837/How-to-Be-Sober-and-Happy-When-Everyone-Around-You-is-Drinking.html

I wrote this piece as a ‘How to’ guide for anybody who is heading towards Thanksgiving and/or Christmas with a slight degree of trepidation, owing to the booze monster lurking in the shadows of all those festive events…

The MindBodyGreen feature is for people who, like me prior to giving up the sauce, know in the pit of their stomachs that they have a bit of a problem with booze. You just know, don’t you? And it isn’t a nice feeling.  

If you are still hankering after one more night on the lash and you think maybe this time it will be different; you won’t end up falling all over the place, arguing with your loved one and embarrassing yourself, this time you will do it right and in control, then TAKE NOTE – don’t kid yourself! Play the movie to the end! It always goes the same way. 

Me a few years ago, at the start of a very boozy night – which ended badly, as always. It took a while to learn but I got here eventually!

Why not decide, this holiday season, to not repeat those same, horrible nights, over and over like a recurring nightmare? Why not do it a bit differently and see if you feel better about yourself? If you do decide to ditch the booze this year, then I hope the MBG article  helps. Please let me know your thoughts on the booze/festive season equation at www.soberistas.com when we launch on November 26th, just 10 days away!

  1. Hi! I just read your article on Mind Body Green and tried to comment on it there but it requires a Facebook account to comment…Facebook is one of the things I gave up this year in addition to alcohol. I love your advice and plan on using a few of those tips as I go into my first alcohol free holiday in years!

    • Hi
      Thanks so much for taking the trouble to find me on the WordPress site! I really appreciate your comments and I’m so happy that you enjoyed the piece. I too gave up Facebook (got the business one now but got rid of the personal one as it just annoyed me!).
      Have a great holiday period, and thanks again!

    • Hi Gary, that sounds really nice, I too don’t really fancy cold fruit based drinks in winter – I’ll definitely give this a whirl. If you sign up to Soberistas.com, would you share this recipe with other members please? I bet it would go down a treat – thanks, Lucy
