Once youve stopped drinking for a full month your outlook on alcohol changes.Thanks for the inspiration.
It is no longer something you NEED. It then becomes something that is there.
After about 6 months I was going out to eat with friends and drinks didnt even cross my mind.
You can do it. The only person stopping you from doing it is yourself.
Find something to do this weekend to keep you occupied without involving alcohol and it will make it much easier to go without.
