This past New Years I realized that I was drinking almost every night. 3 glasses of wine or 3-4 beers. I didn't like how I felt or the fat that was accumulating on my already fluffy frame. So I stopped. Cold turkey for a week and then I would only drink once or twice a week and no more than 2. I felt better. I stayed like that for a while and then I would have a vacation and drink a bunch and I'd go through the same cycle.
I don't have a problem. It's not like I drink during the day or have a drink every night. I stop when I start to get yuck with myself, but I do find myself thinking of alcohol as a way to unwind, destress, or make myself feel less awkward when I'm in a social situation. But it makes me eat a lot and act silly and I don't always like that.
What are your experiences with motherhood and drinking? Am I the only one who struggles with imbibing?
