Today marks 100 days without a drink for me and whilst this is not a major accomplishment for most people, it is for me!
I have spent most evenings since I was almost old enough to drink with a beer, wine or shot glass in my hand so am feeling quite proud of myself!
In parallel I have cleaned up my diet and stepped up the exercise regime - this week burning more than 7,000 calories in the gym.
As a result I feel physically and mentally better than I have for quite a few years.
Whilst it appears my liver might not have been the cause of my right upper quadrant pain I am 100% going to be looking after it from now on.
I won’t yet commit to total abstinence but I really will stick to minimal intake. Even tonight my wife suggested a glass of red with our first beef stew of the season and I declined as I really don’t fancy it anymore - it used to be my favourite combo!
Instead I will have a small portion of sticky toffee pudding as a little treat!! Yum!
Thanks to everyone who has put up with me and supported me over the last few months xx
