Pyyntöäsi ei voi käsitellä
Hangover after hangover I was beginning to become more disillusioned with drink. But I was too afraid to voice my concerns.
I was the always the first to get the shots in and the one partying right to the end. I had FOMO, I never left a night out early, even if it was crap — I Fort Collins dating new the eternal optimist and confident the night would turn round eventually. I remember having this sobering epiphany moment.
I could be at home watching Casualty right now and having a much better time! He told me his story and I was so inspired, but it was one line that really caught my imagination. One year out of drinking from age 15—80 is a tiny percentage of my life and suddenly I started wondering what that would be life and if I could do it. I thought women do it all the time when they are pregnant. What if I just gave it a go? Could I learn to enjoy myself without alcohol? How amazing would it be if I did? That was the moment in Novemberand on the 1st Jan I publicly announced on my social media channels I was going AF for days.
But what is fantastic about OYNB is the community, the role models and having a new tribe to connect with. Initially, friends would try Philadelphia girl meet get me to drink. But over time, my confidence grew, I date Milwaukee WI women learning how socialise without alcohol and still be the life and soul of the party. The longer I went sober the better I felt.
Soon, people could see I was genuinely happy and passionate about the change and others started to be inspired by me. They are now following suit and deciding to give AF life a go as a result of seeing 100% free Torrance dating positive change in me. Yeah, its uncomfortable at first and I hated the social anxiety I experienced, which is why I drank. But I realised that actually that anxiety dissipated much quicker when I just acknowledge my feelings and dealt with them, rather than blocking it out with another Vodka Lemonade!
I had been single for 7 years.

I had dalliances in that time, often as a result of drunken night out with the beer goggles on which led to some serious poor judgement calls on my behalf! A hangover is bad enough, but combine it with a romantic entanglement that is no longer dating a Colorado man tips in the cold light of day, It just made my self-worth and esteem plummet.
After becoming so disillusioned with dating and men, I took some time out to work on me.
I became a personal development junkie, transforming every aspect of my life and during my AF challenge. I decided to leave my very secure day job to focus on my new personal development business I had set up — something I definitely would not have had the confidence to do if I had still been drinking. But with everything dating filipina in Myrtle falling into place, it was time to focus back on the relationships after several years of living like a nun!
I sounded dull as dishwater.
I did hide these little factoids initially, but felt I was being dishonest and almost tricking guys. So I decided if I was going to find someone, I needed to be honest and truthful about who I am. Going to a pub is fine, but there are more creative ways to date! Just as I was losing all faith and had got to the point of not even getting excited about going on dates anymore, I met Dave.
We arranged to meet in a local country pub for lunch and chatted over a Washington good will hunting online free cup of tea! He was different, he was full of chat and asked me lo of questions and dating a Collins MS athlete impressed I was doing this challenge.
He drinks himself, but only occasionally.
Dave is a policeman and witnesses the carnage that alcohol causes each and every weekend. It was over three months before he had a drink in my company and not because he was holding back.
Dave and I dated for another two months before making it official — each date was AF, adventurous and fun. I loved it.
We were both able to really get to know each other without the beer goggles. Eradicating booze from my life has given me peace. I have become more confident and learned that the anxiety I used to feel in social situations, that I would try to suppress with alcohol, was actually being fuelled by it. Learning to face it head on has been free Tennessee dating service game changer in building my confidence.
My relationship with alcohol has been changing for a years.
Now I just take the car and can leave when I want. I now know who and what brings me joy.
And AF dancing is never a problem if the music is good! Speed dating Lombard IL I drink again? So, thank you and cheers to OYNB for creating this incredible movement and showing me how to live life better. Take the Challenge!
