    Regarding $$$ spent on alcohol each month and/or year. It does add up!

    As @globalhiker said: Drink Less=Get Rich :)

    @dawnbgethealthy & @MissMay - your calculations and comments provide additional insight on this topic. Thanks.

    Hi : - )

    I joined this thread November 2018. I was a daily drinker at that point.
    I am drinking less chiefly to lose weight.
    My goals now are the same as they have been since January 2020, kind of my sweet spot.
    16-20 AF days per month
    NO drinking 2 days in a row - this is changing with my new work schedule
    Keep 2 AF days in between drinks days - this also is changing with my new schedule, it is turning out to be 5AF days in a row and 2 consecutive A days.
    3 is my max or I throw up - this is never likely to change.

    Here goes my diary style:


    Friday April 23 - Planning on a couple of drinks tonight. I was up ultra early and finished all of my work by 10:30. I got 2 rows out of 10 of the potato garden dug up and planted. It is supposed to rain the next couple of days, but I just couldn't physically do any more today. Going to have a nice scented bath tonight, pull the TV up to the tub and watch HGTV with a couple of drinks.
    Saturday April 24 - AF - Rainy day today. A drink would have been nice, but I didn't, I work tomorrow. Planned AF now until Thursday or Friday.
    Sunday April 25 - AF - Worked a split shift
    Monday April 26 - AF - Just home between another split shift, busy day tomorrow with various jobs, so AF it will be.
    Tuesday April 27 - AF - Long work day, trying to pull jobs forward so that I might get two full days off this week instead of one.
    Wednesday April 28 - AF - Brutally long work day today, by choice. I really felt like having a drink when I finally got back home. I have only one small job in the morning and then my 4 hour restaurant shift tomorrow. I have a bottle of Skinnygirl Margarita in the fridge and a glass in the freezer. I definitely will be sitting out back in the sun with a drink tomorrow. Also planned drinks on my friend's patio for Friday.
    Thursday April 29 - 2 drinks. I enjoyed them much more than I used to when I had drinks every day. I brought Bhindi Masala home from the restaurant for dinner (okra), really delicious.
    Friday April 30 - A bunch of drinks. It was beautiful outside. My guitar player and my friend came over. I kept my drinks to 1/2 ounce each.


    Rolling total: 21 AF days out of 30 days
