First things first, day 38. Almost 6 weeks. Not the first time I’ve gone this amount of time without alcohol. I used to smoke and in the many attempts to quit would always stop drinking as the two were so closely associated in my head. So every time I stopped smoking for the first 3 months I would stop drinking. So my personal bests begin once I get beyond 90 days. That’s part of the reason for doing Belle’s 100 day challenge 🙂
Another part of the desire to start this process was because I believed I wasn’t creative. This belief came from not being allowed to do Art as one of my school exam options. I was told I wasn’t good enough. Ergo – I am not creative. It was only many years later that I said this to a manager of mine who then complimented me on my creative problem solving skills. Oh so maybe I was a bit creative after all. So this blogging experience for me is about warming up and stretching my creative muscles to see just how true that statement still is.
