My head hurts.
That’s because I’m hungover. Again. I woke up at about 3 am with a banging headache, needing a wee and water but not wanting to move. Those famous last words ‘I’m never drinking again’.
I remember when I was at uni and I used to drink loads and feel fine the next day. Just a bit tired. l could drink on a Friday night and then go work at 7 am on a Saturday. As I’ve gotten older, my hangovers have gotten worse and worse.
Wine seems to be giving me a hard time in particular. Which is tough because I love wine and I really enjoy drinking it. But what don’t love is staying in bed until 11 am and then on the sofa for another 4 hours before I can actually move and do something.
I don’t love that all I’ve eaten is toast and a pot noodle. I don’t love that I didn’t go get my car cleaned because I felt ill. I don’t love that I didn’t go to the gym and I’ve only just started blogging at 3 pm.
This is not a regular thing for me at all but it is becoming more regular due to my tolerance for getting lower and lower.
Splitting headache, feeling sick and tired all are feelings I hate.
So I wanted to write this post just to put it out there. To officially say that I am quitting wine. Gin and beer is the way forward and will now be my weekend drink of choice.
