Weekend Update: I Surprised Myself

Wow. Just wow. Today is day 8 of no vodka. I must say, I'm really quite proud of myself. I might reward myself with something special...like vodka. I went out Friday with Devin. First we went to this little jazz spot. We're sitting at the table, and he orders a drink he's quite proud of. He asks me if I want to taste it. I decline, then he nearly forces it down my throat (peer pressure). And you know what? I said fuck NO! Ohhh, but I wanted some. After we left the jazz spot we went and smoked hookah for a few hours. You know what goes well with hookah? Vodka. Yep, you can pair vodka with about anything. So we're sitting there smoking, talking. He's drinking, and I came so close to ordering a glass of red wine, a shot of vodka...vodka and wine together, but I didn't. We hung out the whole evening and I did well. I deserve something.


Saturday was even better. I ended up meeting P.A.T.T out, there was an open bar. Free top shelf whatever you wanted. Free. Totally f-r-e-e. I resisted. Damn, I'm good. And I'll be even better in six and a half weeks when I'm looking hot in my two piece on the beach. Speaking of P.A.T.T, the convo between us has improved. It's been strained the last month or so, but it's gotten better. Not like it used to be, but better.

Sunday was relaxing. I talked to Brian. Our first conversation since the "e-mail". We talked for almost half-an hour. Just like nothing ever happened. It was like I took a little vacation, got back, and we picked up right where we left off. Sunday must have that effect on people, because I spoke with Mr. Henry as well. Pretty much our first conversation in a month too.

Tonight's agenda...salsa.

"then he nearly forces it down my throat (peer pressure). "

but seriously i'm proud of you. i don't know if i could go without drinking at an open bar. hookah, maybe but the open bar would have been my achilles.

@ Tunde - Dirty Mind! Yeah, the open bar wasn't that bad cause I drove, so I KNEW I had to be good...

@POW - You're just as strong!

@ True - Thanks! Girl you've been out huh? LOL I stopped by Marvin's last Monday, it was cool. Tonight I went somewhere else, it was sorta wack

@ Ms. Minx - Thanks...it's kinda nice knowing I can pass on my absolute favorite pass-time. twss means this is what she said on Twitter...

Diva, you've been doing your thing, resisting the urge and whatnot. I am very proud of you as well. I know it's hard but it's going to feel really good when you can look back and feel empowered from being able to do without. Stay strong.

Where did you do salsa??

I noticed you posted on monday-- please don't tell me Lima-- cussss we mightt have been there at the same time!! LOL

jolie fatale said...

I'm very proud of you. I've tried on numerous occasions to give up drinking but DC honestly makes it next near to impossible and once I start I cant stop... Happy Hours usually cost me 50.00 dollars.. lol

I've only gone 40 days without the liquor but if I CAN DO IT .. I know you can.

Anonymiss said...

Salsa= Fun.

Oh && good job w/ the no drinking.

I leave to take of some business and now you're watching porn on xhamster and the lush life has ended. Damn, it must be the recession. Here's notice: Bond is Back.


Bond. BlkBond.

Awe Bond - I missed ya... I can't have a vodka belly in the DR...it's only temporary... gotta get it right

Jolie - It IS hard...Happy Hours usually don't cost me that much, it's when they are done. On avaerage I was spending $60.00 a night, multiply that by 4 to 5 nights a week....sad

Starz - No Lima, I was close by thought :)

Mr. Nicholas & AnonyMiss - Thanks....trust me, I'm going through vodka withdrawls...

Marty J. Christopher said...

Okay, I give you soooooooo much credit for resisting at the OPEN BAR!!! I would have been weak and drunk half an hour in. Lol...I've been hearing from old awkward friends, too. Something in the air...
