Alcohol makes my body feel really, really bad, but it took me much longer to let it go than gluten and even (most/habitual) sugar which also have direct negative effects on how I feel. The longer I go without it, though, the less I remember why I was so hooked on it. (Still will sip my husband's drink bc I do like the taste, but it no longer makes me want my own. Maybe the exception is a cold session beer on a hot day!) So I've found this flip really fascinating, and it's made me think a lot about what I am and am not willing to notice with regards to what *actually* makes me feel good.

Yes! Me too, re: what *actually* works for me. I can do the same self-delusion dance. I think it’s human nature.
