1) The time I most crave a DC is after a mtb ride.
2) It's much easier to keep my mind off of it while at work.
3) Sunday is the hardest day to not drink
4) I really don't feel any different.
I wanted to go several days without to clean out the body. I have no intention of giving it up for good. I have several road trip/bike trips planned over the next few months (Rachelle, we need to talk). I can't imagine Fall Moab or Fruita without a DC. That would be blasphemous. And my friends would probably not speak to me.
If you see me with a DC in my hand, please don't get me the stink eye. It's all good. I passed my own personal test to see if I could do without. Turns out, I can. But I really do like a DC every now and then. Maybe just not as much.
