Alcohol Free Beer ????

My hubby and I packed up our apartment, stocked our caravan and left home on last to travel in our caravan - first trip is over 4000 km.

It’s been a week of learning - and I’m sure there will be lots, lots more.

One thing I know for sure on this adventure I want to remember it all and not spend days with a hangover.

Sunday for my hubby & I has always been have a drink day.

And One thing I decided I wanted to do before I left was to stop drinking alcohol.

I love my beer and a wine, don’t get me wrong but I was drinking way to much.

Alcohol can increase levels of estrogen and other hormones associated with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. So as I am endeavouring to do everything possible to look after me i decided to make another huge change and stop drinking.

I struggle in my head with wanting to enjoy life and this for me includes drinking alcohol but I also want more to be healthy and live a long life. I also am over feeling hungover and missing so much of the following day after a drink.

If I could have just one or two a couple of days a week that would be ok in my head, but often once I start, I find a bottle of wine is gone before I know it.

The culture in Australia and maybe all countries is a holiday means more drinking.

Hence I don’t want to drink more when I’m going to be travelling more.

I have been going great without it since New Years Day but have had a couple of beers this week.

So here I am on our first Sunday of our adventure, in a beautiful coastal town in South Australia having a non alcoholic beer.

And feeling good about it.

I know for sure I’ll feel good about it tomorrow when I wake up and can go for an early morning walk.

Does anyone else feel this way?
