    No need to explain this challange. I Thought I'd get a thread going early, so if you are interested, lets try to do April without any booze. Cheers! (or maybe not):lol:

    Finally decided that I WILL stay dry for the entire month of April!

    While I have been without alcohol since Feb. 24th, I hadn't decided how much longer I wanted to go. As of this morning, I have decided (sort of :lol:)! My birthday is May 10th and I plan to stay off the sauce AT LEAST until then.

    I am just enjoying the better sleep, lack of hangovers, lost weight, extra $$$ in my pocket, etc., way too much. Plus, I have recently gotten back on the weight training wagon again after a 4-month lapse and I don't want to derail that progress.

    So, I am in for the month of April. :tu:

    Beyond that, we shall see. Stay tuned .........

    Good!

    I am sober since Jan. 24th and this is no longer willpower testing challenge for me. I just enjoy overall better health too.
    I think, I'll have couple of beers in may.

    Well, another dry weekend is history! Tomorrow makes it 8 weeks of sobriety. :tu:

    On a related note, my weight has dropped 9 lbs since going on the wagon and I am almost ready to tighten my belt a notch. :lol:

    LateStart, good job!

    Today is 3 months of sobriety for me! Can't even remember when it was last time I didn't have a drink for so long :) I feel good!

    The last weekend in April is by the boards. It's all downhill from here. Not too many weekday temptations, since I am presently getting up at 4 AM and working 12-14 hours a day! :lol:

    I went alcohol-free for a couple of months last Spring but this time around, I am not as acutely aware of the absence. Perhaps a permanent lifestyle change is in the works? :confused:

    Still thinking I might imbibe on my birthday but that is a couple of weeks away, so we'll see.

    Had some beers on 25th. In a good company, with friend. Was able to stop after 3rd glass. :)

    Finished the month out dry! :guitar:

    Today marks 10 weeks without a drop of alcohol. Feeling great and my weight has dropped from 205 to 194.

    Not sure what is on tap (pun intended :lol:) for May. The 10th of the month is my birthday and I will admit that I am sorely tempted to celebrate a bit. :o
