Hello fellow followers...
Had a busy week. Been hitting the gym quite hard, and then munching chocolate every night while watching films, I am aware that cancels each other out, but I am never going to quit stoffing chocolate down my face, so at least I'm hitting the gym first! Positive.
Last night Nathan my mate, called me up and offered me tickets to Sister Act. I had to pop to a meeting and the docs first and I ran in the rain to meet him at 7.30pm for the show.
The production was amazing! Danni Minogue sat behind us and the crowd were screaming her name, crazy. As most people, Nathan had a drink and told me how impressed he was that I am still not drinking. It's only been just over a month, but I guess if you knew me before, you would know that I would always have a drink on occasions like these. Afterwards, we had a couple of invites. A party was near that we popped into, these celeb bashes really don't have the same effect when you are not charging towards the bar to neck the free drinks, and parties barely give goodie bags out anymore, so I find myself talking to an over egotistical D Lister as they talk about wanting their own chat show, "never gonna happen...". Trust me, in these circumstances, nothing is more appealing that leaning over the bar and asking for a double.
Then it was either Freedom Bar or Soho House with some mates. Now, I love my mates, and I hate myself for seeming boring (personally, I don't think me not drinking is boring, but I am aware that other people do!), so I decided to leave it all, and get the tube home.
I don't want to make the mistake of stopping living my life because I no longer drink, but I am also aware me not drinking makes some people feel bad, it either points out there inadaquecy to not be able to stop - or, maybe I just am a bit more boring without a glass of wine. But until it becomes the norm, for me and everyone else around me, I will have to stay away from certain bashes.
Which is a shame, as there is a great launch party on tonight... :-(
