On March 9, 2015 I made an official announcement regarding my 28 day detoxication exercise stating that starting on March 8, 2015 I will be curbing alcohol leading up to Easter. A commitment that I made to myself with intent of testing out my level of persistence. If anything, even deserting alcohol temporarily was foreseen to be quite the challenge itself.

Now that I’m onto my third day I think I’m really starting to feel the repercussions. No, it is not a withdrawal from alcohol. I’m definitely not an alcoholic but the exhilaration onto a beer, malt liquor, or wine definitely seems appealing to me right at this moment. It is extremely difficult to be persistent and abiding of such commitment. Another reason why I decided to curb alcohol was to see how truly focused I could really be if under the gun. Thus far pacing quite well but like anything else the situation and feelings can flip on the spin of a dime.

My wife and I are planning on visiting Chicago this weekend for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Definitely not our first time heading into the windy city but absolutely our first encounter with the festivities revolving around this celebration. We have heard many great things about the parade, the coloring of the river, and overall spirit. Quite excited to be heading out there even for a quick weekend getaway. It has been nearly two years since my wife and I took an actual vacation due to crazy work schedules and a ton of other stuff happening in both of our lives.

So, in closing, Day 3 of 28 is in the rearview mirror. Only 25 more to go!
