As I’ve stated before I recently started a new job.  Well with a new job comes new coworkers and for me new germs.  I actually managed to not catch the cold that was going around for a couple months.  That cold was something else it zapped my energy like cold to a battery.  My sleep cycle has been finally been catching up and I’ve felt good enough to go out or stay after work for a drink.  Unfortunately, I’ve noticed another zap to my energy.  After some research, yesterday, I have a feeling my liver could use a rest, after a strict flow of cold medicine and a few to many cocktails.  (I’m not jaundice or anything! just tired!) I thought it too perfect that today is the beginning of a new month and even more fitting that Lent begins on the 5th, so I begin my at least month long trek into the sober world.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not getting wasted every night or not even every month, I just don’t think having a drink after work is going to help my liver repair itself.  So, it begins my battle of my own will.  I had planned to only do a month without alcohol but now the idea is to continue for lent. I’m excited. This is probably the most difficult challenge for me. I have to have faith that I will not falter.  I hope that it positively affects my health and that I can do this.

We shall see!
