I stopped drinking last year, June 18. I had the last of many beers in a pub in London and then decided that I’d seen enough of how the British advertising/marketing culture drinks. I decided to give up drinking completely, I then progressed toÂ Dry JulyÂ and transitioned from there to Hello Sunday Morning.
I’ve had the occasional drink, but I haven’t really enjoyed it all that much. In the beginning I really missed drinking beer. Those feelings have gone. Not drinking has given me back not just Sunday mornings, but every morning of the week. I was never much of a big drinker, but now that I’m socialising less in pubs, I’m spending more time outdoors and exercising with friends. It’s brilliant. Now that my 12 months is up, I’ve been able to reflect on what I’ve learned.
