Ok, it’s here, that angst and missing-you feeling I’ve dreaded.
I would love nothing more than to sit down and take a sip of my favorite red wine, and just feel that lovely relaxing feeling. I don’t care – darn it. I miss it all too much!
But I can’t. I have promised myself that I can no longer damage my health in this way. I can no longer dampen down my emotions in this way. I don’t want to give away my evenings, every evening, to wine and nothing else. Such a waste! I already feel the benefits of not drinking.
And yet – how I miss thee red wine!
I am going to buy a non-alcoholic wine now, and see how that feels tonight.
I’ve researched and found a good one: Torres Natureo Red
from Spain “A real breakthrough from Torres; they have made a wine at 0.29% that is a proper wine. Hand someone a glass of this and they would never guess it’s a de-alcoholized wine. Nice structure, lots of bright ripe berry fruit but above all the feeling that this is wine.”
That’s how I’m celebrating tonight. That I’ve found a non-alcoholic wine. And I’ll raise a glass to it and to me. Because I don’t want to break my good run so far. I’ll let you know how it tastes.
