At Ted's birthday party I drank three O'Doul's!
My first, second and third O'Doul's ever.
I think I had a mild psychosomatic buzz going on. That or something else. I guess three O'Doul's is <1.5% alcohol by content of one beer...so, maybe I actually drank the equivalent of less than half a pabst over 3+ hours? Awesome.
I think I'll try to stay away from those from now on, to maintain the purity of the decision I've made, although I can't deny that the taste was, even though not particularly good, a nice addition to the evening. Now I understand why so many ex-drinkers still drink those things, but I'm still going to miss the good ones. Who knows when, if ever I'll start drinking again, but until then I'm really going to miss a good beer.
I'm really impressed with how much my contact making and productivity has gone up just in the one week I've been sober. If this is what alcohol has been keeping me from I'm very disappointed in myself. Well, here we go making up for lost time.
