Sober Weekend Was A Smashing Success

The fact that I had a weekend titled "Sober Weekend" is probably a telling sign of the state of my life, but aside, it was a great, excellent, wonderful time. Having not spent an entire Friday and Saturday alcohol free since roughly '04, this was new to me. Never before on a Monday morning have I felt so refreshed/cleansed/hopeful about a day. Hell, I even considered putting up a post during the weekend, but that would have been just off-the-wall psycho crazy. WMD hibernates (drinks) on the weekend, so we can build up disdain and creativity for the week to come.

Let me tell you, it felt like I was on Dr. Drew's sober house. At roughly, 7:45PM of both Friday and Saturday nights my body started doing things on autopilot. Like I basically blacked out and woke up in line at the liquor store with a 30 in my hand. Quitting the weekend cold turkey was no easy task. I had to enlist the help of Netflix, Chinese food, and the lack of negative influence. They all did their part, but peer pressure always wins out. I literally felt like one of those vagrants featured on any VH1 show.

Then people asked me: "Why have a sober weekend?" To be honest, I don't know. It was more of a challenge to myself more than me actually needing it. Like, "can I go through a weekend without touching alcohol?" Ridiculous. Made me realize what is in store for roughly the next 5 years of my life. Just constants of work, bars, debating not going to bars, adult sports leagues, girlfriend, and the slow phasing out video games. Things are looking grim.

But seriously, S-Weekend was awesome. You guys should probably try it sometime.
