The Great Beer Fast Update: Day 9
I think that giving up beer, in general, has helped me avoid alcohol altogether. Beer is cheap in New York. Mixed drinks are not, unless you enjoy rubbing alcohol and cranberry juice.
I've found a new addiction, though: caffeine. Namely, the low-quality, but highly-caffeinated espresso in the office coffee machine. I pour a double shot, put it over ice, and add milk and Equal. Twice a day. Before lunch.
Every workday between 11am and noon, I feel like I'm on top of the world!
