Cold Turkey and Discipline


After a long weekend of excessive drinking (and some smoking- blah) that has spilled over into the week. . . I have come to the realization that I need to detox. So I have decided to streamline my diet, cut out any impurities and quit - gulp - yes, quit drinking for a while. YIKES! I think it will be good - a little discipline is definately needed in my life, right now. I figure I will set my goal to purify until Thanksgiving. I figure that's doable, right? After all you can't eat turkey without a good merlot, can you? But I definately can not smoke anymore. I am an athelete - and it's disgusting. But for some reason when I have a couple in me, all of a sudden, it's acceptable. Until the next day when I go to take a run and can't even get through the second mile. SO LAME! It's got to stop, I say. Wish me luck...


note: caffeine will not be cut out of my diet - I would surely be forced to kill someone if coffee were taken away.

Ok, so who I am going to drink with now. That just ruined my weekend. I just think you got excited by the pink pants, they make you do crazy things.

good luck (you can do it!!)... I know it takes about 10 days to detox from caffeine.

If you ya need a smoke instead try breathing exercises... in for a count of 4 through the nose out for a count of 8 through puckered lips.

While breathing in, breath in through the abdomen and and when that section is filled allow the chest to fill. Then push out with you abdomen.

Really cool shit what it can do to you if you do if for 5 minutes...

So what are you doing this weekend? You owe me a beer from last weekend. Just kidding, you can do it. So glad that you are not smoking any more. Being in that basement was a bit rough.
