First week down

So it’s Friday evening, my daughter is asleep (and will remain so for the next 14 hours on her current run of form), and it’s been a pretty full-on week at work. Usually I’d have already had a beer at my desk before leaving the office and would now be enjoying a glass of wine, gin and tonic or a Negroni. But tonight, nothing.

I don’t drink all that much — let me rephrase; all that frequently — these days. Most evenings are spent without any alcohol. Going a month won’t be any real hardship to be honest.

Last month I purchased a Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor, mainly out of curiosity rather than concern. I wasn’t too surprised though to find that my blood pressure was on the higher side of normal.

I’ll be interested to see if this period of abstinence makes any difference.
