With the weekend right around the corner I thought I’d make a short list of reasons of why I don’t drink right now. I should mention I have a normal history and relationship with alcohol, but right now I just don’t miss it in my life. Here is why:
I don’t prioritize going out and drinking. Those things are just not possible for me because they come so far down on my want-to-do list right now that other things take their place. I’d much rather get in an extra work out or give my body restitution. I know I know - I’m a really exciting person :) haha. There’s just not time for everything.
I don’t think it’s healthy for me. I believe in alkalizing my body as much as possible and even though I often eat foods that are not alkalizing I just can’t stomach the idea of pouring more acidic substance into my body. Alcohol is very acidic.
I just don’t feel like it at the moment. I stopped drinking when I started doing ashtanga yoga a few years ago. Somehow I suddenly just didn’t feel like it anymore. Before that I was going out and drinking like ‘normal’ people. Maybe I’ll want to resume drinking in the future, but right now I'm good.
I don’t have any bad days because of hangovers.
I don’t need it to relax, calm my nerves or have fun.
Lastly I also want to add that I obviously don’t have a problem hanging out with friends and family that are enjoying themselves with drinks. We are all different. Have a great weekend everyone. S
