Sober February


Recommended Posts

tried this last year, and made it about 3 weeks until i attended a jeff ross show.

already have a head start on it this year; last drink was january 17, this is to make up for a scheduled drunken event on february 13th.

if i succeed in abstaining during the last two weeks in january, and every day but one in february, i will consider that victory.

Last alcohol I had was Dec. 27. After going all year in '14 I was an occasional football game/ dinner drinker last year but I think I'll try to go all year again. Try to lose the last 20 pounds I need to lose. I bought some L-theanine too and it's great for relieving stress and staying away from drinking.

You in this year LD?

Not sure what I'll do this year. Guy's winter getaway over SB weekend. Then a Super Bowl party back home that notoriously goes until dawn on Monday.

After that weekend, I'll probably be ready for a hiatus.

I honestly can't imagine myself wanting to drink for about 10 days once next weekend is done. It's just a matter of how I let that snowball.

I'm putting you in then. Make it happen IMO :thumbup:

I need you, bob and Krista to make this work again.

I'm sure I'll be in.

Not that I saw a significant weight loss last year, but I've recently found a renewed obsession with reaching my goal weight. While it might not help help get me there, I can't imagine cutting out empty calories hurting the cause.

So this starts the 8th? Or does it start when we wake up on the morning of the first and not in 40 minutes?

Yes.

I think Bob is starting the 8th. Most of us seem to be starting tomorrow, but I guess "tomorrow" can mean when you get up. For me it doesn't matter as I won't make it up 'til midnight anyway. :bag:

I'm adjusting slightly. Starting 2/8 (after Super Bowl) and going until Easter Sunday, with just one day exception, on 2/13, seeing Def Leppard/Tesla, can't be sober for that. Will be checking in here often, will need the support!

Drink on SB and for your show, go the rest sober. Were here for weight loss and temptation to get drunk support.

I have to take a day off for a wine and chocolate event on 2/13, so I'm going to do sober super bowl so that I'm not taking two days off during the month. Good luck with it - I feel like you're going to be fine!

Never heard of L-theanine, just researched it and the reviews are excellent. Got some 100% pure 250mg capsules on the way, can't wait to try it.

Considering getting in board here. Who is in?m

WTF? You need more than Bob?
Good point. Ok IN. Mrs O in as well.

I'll need to make concessions for client dinners,

so they don't think I'm some kind of weirdo.

I'm in if you're in. Want to bet on who breaks first?

*Clearly, super bowl weekend is an exception to any bet.

ETA: I also have a beerfest over Valentine's Day weekend, so yeah that one doesn't count either. Actually on second thought, I vote we limit this event to non-work related functions M-F.

Started subbing on a bowling team this year, but that should only be a couple nights a month. Hoping to make a better effort at it this year.

Stopped by a charity bowling event that a bunch of friends were attending.

If it's not the deepest darkest corner of hell, a bowling alley while sober is certainly on the way there

Fair Warning

Havent had a drink since the AFC Championship game. Will drink the day of the Super Bowl, then back on the wagon until the 17th when I head out to San Diego with the GF for a work/pleasure trip. That will at least make a 3.5 week stretch with 1 day off in the middle (super bowl sunday).

No feasible way to keep the wheels on the wagon as It'll be 5 days in San Diego, then heading straight to Tunica casinos from the airport for an Aaron Lewis show (GF xmas gift) and spending the night down there. Then back to work for 2 days before driving up to Bourbon Country in Kentucky to tour a couple distilleries and do a barrel selection with some buddies from the local guard unit.

AFTER that, I may take another week or two to dry back out. Haphazard approach, perhaps. but it's something.

Bump before dinner time and my wife decides to crack a bottle of wine.
