Duffy’s Thoughts on Euphoric
I’m not on the heavy side of alcohol drinking, anyone else would call it normal, or average drinking. However, particularly during the past two years of lockdowns, a few glasses of wine on the sofa whilst watching Netflix, or sipping whilst prepping dinner, then sipping a little bit more whilst eating became a habit. I started to notice in myself that sleep was a little bit worse, my clothes were a little bit tighter, and generally, I wasn’t feeling great.
Reaching for a cool crisp glass of vino after a busy day, or a down day due to lockdown and the pressures of COVID felt awesome at the time, a real release, but did I feel a million bucks the next day? Ready to face the world? Hell no!
I switched from a social drinker, which I enjoy, to an emotional one. Not a lot, just a few glasses, but even one or two was enough to raise my anxiety levels.
I gave Annie Grace’s The Alcohol Experiment a go, but the author’s tone irritated me a bit. I just didn’t connect with the book. So when I was offered Euphoric to read and review, I was cautiously optimistic.
Euphoric is an excellent read!
Will I give up booze for good? No Way! However, the honest and positive tone from author Karolina Rzadkowolska, along with a few truth bombs definitely has me looking at alcohol in a different way. Whilst I was reading the book, I got COVID, luckily just a couple of days in bed, but it came with a lingering gastritis side effect. This took the choice of having a glass of wine away, and as the symptoms have eased, I haven’t felt the need to reach for a glass at all and felt this an opportune time to read Euphoric.
I know it won’t last, but I feel that I can head to the pub and have a light beer or a soft drink and not 3 giant wines. I also have a fridge full of 0% beers which surprisingly trick your brain and don’t taste that bad.
There are also more hours in the day! I baked a cake last weekend, the first time since I was in home economics at school. I’m really enjoying cooking meals and you may have noticed, my reading game is back up!
Euphoric has a chapter for each of the eight weeks as you make the switch to a reduced alcohol lifestyle and I find this an excellent addition because the book will sit on the table, by your bed, in your bag for two months, which is a solid amount of time for those good habits to kick in.
I really enjoyed Euphoric and thoroughly recommend it for anyone who is looking to get healthier, and who wants to reduce or quit booze long term.
