A decision

I've decided not to drink anything for the next few weeks.
No beer.
No wine.
No spirits.
No... hm... what else is there?

Why? Well, I have this weird complex about self-denial sometimes. Like when I think I'm drinking too much coffee, I stop drinking coffee for awhile. Or not even if I think I'm having too much, just to see if I can do it or even how it feels.

Now I don't think I drink toooo much beer/whatever right now, I am pretty much all alone up here so its not like I go for drinks with people much anyway. But I still end up buying a couple of 6-packs of beer every week to try out. I've pretty much tried everything I want to that's available up here. Now it occurred to me that if I have a beer or two every day does that make me some kind of alcoholic? I do, afterall, crave a beer at the end of the day.

Thus, to prove to myself and the few people who actually read my blog that I don't need beer all the time: I'm not having any beer until my work replacements arrive from Calgary. That should be Dec 3. So, that gives me a short week and a half. That should be pretty easy!
In theory, if I was an actual alcoholic I wouldn't be able to last even a few days without a beer, really.
Cheers! (er... well maybe not in this case)
