Anyone else doing this crazy challenge? I know my workouts will be better not to mention how it will help with weight. No more logging wine ☺️.
Shoot me a line if your reading this and on board too!

    My husband has just announced he is doing it. So I will probably end up doing it by default since all the restaurants are closed and I don't much care if I drink at home or not.

    Okay, why not? I just stocked up on decaf earl grey tea and sparkling water so I'll try!

    Yes. Count me in. Fewer calories, better sleep, all the reasons :)

    Same. DH did dry June last year, and it was tons easier for me to abstain that month, although he didn’t care if I did or not. During that month, I tried This Naked Mind “alcohol experiment. “ https://thisnakedmind.com/the-alcohol-experiment/
    I did gain insights into my beliefs and habits around alcohol that made it easier to moderate.

    Day 2 so sleepy. And it's Saturday! *kitten*. I can see neighbors next door from my kitchen. That means sports in the garage tv and beers and the usual chiding about not having 'just one'.
    Any advice will be noted!
    Maybe I will say I have Covid?

    Bring your own NA? I'm partial to Athletic's NA IPA, myself.

    I forgot about sports this month, :# that might be tough for you sports fans!!! I tried the NA beer a few times when I was pregnant, and some of them ARE really good. Also, I would mix a little grape juice or apple juice with sparkling water when wanting wine, beer, or soda. I was getting off heavier drinking than I am now, though, so I'm hoping the hot tea in the evening will suffice...

    Bring your own. People won't even notice or care. It leaves more for them! Especially with pandemic distancing, BYO is a standard practice and a smart one. Go have fun.

    I’m doing it. Day 2 and looking at some non-alcoholic beer to take the edge off this evening. Keep going everyone!
