I was so keen to stop drinking temporarily inside this Ready to Be Thirsty [#R2BT]thing that I signed up to another similar campaign elsewhere.
If you check either of those out, you’ll see where we got the foundation and inspiration for Ready to be Thirsty.
Truthfully, I was trying to manage my anxiety. Work up my courage. Build up my confidence for NOW, when it counts. What am I saying? – every day counts. But somehow I figured that if I built up my stamina by trying to cut back in January I would be fully, utterly ready for February.
And yes, I messed up – twice.
I started with ginger ale and all was fine… until the band kicked up. I was on a date night with my girlfriend, and something about clumsy covers of Bob Dylan put me right on the edge of letting loose.
And then, I was up and down all night as my kidneys fully rediscovered their purpose. Mental note – don’t let the band begin to play this February.
