I’m 17 days into Dry June aka 30 days with no drinking. It was a long overdue cleanse. The first few days were rough, but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The picture above is just one example of the awesomeness I have been fueling my body with.
Most importantly, I know that this experience hasn’t turned me into a teetotaler. I will imbibe again in the future.
However, I can already see that my relationship with alcohol has changed. It was approaching some sort of bad romance. I clearly see when alcohol was a tool of distraction for me and what compelled me to opt to attempt to drown demons even though they were all excellent swimmers. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being distracted now and then. However, it shouldn’t be a way of life.
That being disclosed, my relationship with alcohol from July forward will be a conscious one of moderation.

Oh, and, by no means should one ever drink and swipe (on a dating app).
While the experience will leave you with an oftentimes, hilarious story, it’s just not worth it once the dust settles and clears.
