Drinking With Intention
Posted on March 29, 2020
A World Health Organization expert warned that alcohol is an "unhelpful coping strategy" for the possible stress and isolation of coronavirus lockdown. I mean, sure, that's probably true.
Drinking at home these last two weeks of the pandemic has been a way to mark the change from "working time" to "relaxing time." And I'll admit it's also a way to turn down the volume on anxiety. Am I drinking more? Yes. Is it a problem? I don't think so! I have yet to wake up with a hangover and it's not constant drinking. Kathryn and I have no problem finishing off two bottles of wine a night and can occasionally do a bit more. When there is whiskey in the house I will definitely have a little more.
Is this a problem? Or is this an opportunity?
I propose that I become "more intentional" with my drinking. We will define the details in a weejee vote.
A yes vote means I'll implement one of the ideas on the corresponding weejee vote.
A no vote means I'll just keep doing what I'm doing because it's probably fine.
