The obvious replacement

Almost feels like a no shit Sherlock but here is the replacement for booze.

Been a while

...and my ability to monitor my finances sucks.

I had hoped to give a cost analysis of doing hee-haw boozin' as I suspect that I drink soft drinks so damn fast that I buy 2 drinks for everyone 1 alcoholic drink I'd buy.  Now unfortunately in all my good intentions I tend to get distracted with the whole socialising bit of being out and completely forget the nitty gritty.  Sorry to anyone who cares.

Friday Night

I've found my replacement addiction:  Star Wars : The Old Republic.

Running a guild on that thing takes up waaaaay too much time.

Better than expected

When I began this minor journey/test I did think I had an alcohol problem.  I don't think anyone goes cold turkey without thinking they have an issue with what they are going cold turkey from. I do have an alcohol problem, though not the one I thought i had.

The first steps...

...have been taken.

As I explained in my lengthy last post, the reason behind this isn't (just) the usual "I can go without booze and prove you wrong!" or equally it isn't purely a New Year's resolution.  I wanted, instead, to see if I can do all the socialising that usually involved alcohol.

My Goals

As a comment to my previous post I pointed out the areas that made me think about doing this.  Broadly speaking they fall into 3 main categories:

1) Socialising
2) Economy
3) Well-being


So I survived the first full day without booze.
