Temptations Everywhere

It’s day 128 no booze for me and I’m travelling extensively for work this week – 4 different states in 4 days.  I’d never noticed before how much temptation there is to drink around travel.

Right now for instance I’m in a 3 hour layover in an airline lounge (fancy I know!  LOL) and the after work travel crowd are drinking up a storm – free booze, my favorite, sigh.

Sitting on my own in nice restaurants listening to champagne corks pop while I try to elegantly sip my coke is also quite trying as I discovered the other night.  To combat this the following night I had KFC for dinner and took myself off the the local movie theatre to keep occupied.

Tomorrow I’ve had to turn down an invitation to hold a business meeting at a cozy wine bar near my media providers office  – I came clean to them and announced my year off to emailed acclaim (I’m sure they think I’m crazy).

Last Saturday I dealt with the exclusive wine tasting that I arranged for my clients by escorting them to the venue and then “going to sound check with the dinner band” – really I was sitting in a cozy corner of the resort reading a book until they finished (more venues should have libraries for us non boozers to distract ourselves with), by then they were all so chirpy that they didn’t notice I wasn’t drinking – my cunning plan worked!

The rest of my country wide tour will be less booze focused and I can’t wait to get home to Crazy Cat Boy and the furry ones.

Stay happy and healthy everyone.

  1. You’re doing great! This is how it happens…..! I’m picturing us all skiing down the sober hill gracefully dodging trees. And, hell, even if we take a flop on the face, we’re still on the sober hill. And no, I’m not a skiier 🙂
