Christmas season was much less moderate... parties and just wonderful, wonderful alcohol choices everywhere, it was hard to keep things "moderate" at times. 1-2 became 3-4 more nights than not, and sometimes more than that!
So I decided to bring things back to some kind of equilibrium in January. My liver needed a vacation.
Things I've noticed:
- More energy. Especially noticeable at night, but really throughout the day I feel better
- I'm not as hungry after dinner. I usually snack (then feel guilty about it), but I've been much more able to control that impulse
- I feel less anxious. I don't know if this one is real or imagined, but I just feel more even keel
It's only been 5 days, we'll see if things change throughout the month. I hope not, I feel quite good! Although I really miss beer/wine... if this does prove to be life-changing, I might knock it down to one day a week so I don't feel entirely deprived of the beer/wine that I love.
