It’s that time of year again where I take a month off alcohol.

I’ve done it for the last 3 or 4 years.
This year it’s to stop burn out and let new meds do their thing, so I’ve got a solid reason to see this through.

First week is sugar cravings.
After day 3, my sleep improves so much - this is the bit that makes it all worthwhile.

Is anyone else doing Dry July?

If drinking was an Olympic sport, I’d be a dead set silver medalist.

On the upside, I’ll be set up with my still and ready to start to distilling my own rum by the end of the month.

Good luck bro. Maybe drink a little less generally so you sleep better.

When you first go dry, how does it effect you?
I’ve found sugar and sleep are my biggies.
I am not sure about the sugar part, though I do snack more so maybe that is it

I have not paid much attention but I def. sleep better. I am not sure if I dream more or I just remember more of my dreams

my biggest challenge is between 5pm or so and bedtime. I always have a drink in my hand during those hours. almost make one without thinking so I have to be conscious about not doing that
