Why My Healthy Living Plan Doesn’t Include Drinking!

When I was younger, I was able to drink liquor and felt OK. NOW, it doesn’t sit well with me. Occasionally, I am asked WHY I don’t drink. Sometimes I think it offends others that I choose not to, and I’m not sure why.

I have no problem with others indulging, as long as they can drink responsibly. I HAVE experienced uncomfortable situations where others CANNOT handle their alcohol and it’s EXTREMELY annoying.

Booze has the same effect on me as refined sugar does. Besides feeling buzzed (which I hate), I suffer from headaches, severe dehydration, low energy levels, and stomach aches.  It also lowers my immunity and I tend to catch colds more often.

Why would I drink alcohol, if the end result makes me feel lousy?

I AM proud of the fact that I can be sober and still have a good time. Besides, my primary focus is on wellness, fitness, longevity and maintaining my high energy level so I’m able to do the many things I LOVE to do! That’s what healthy living is all about!

I guess you can say I’m HIGH ON LIFE! Isn’t that how it should be?

So, if you happen to see me out in public and offer me an alcoholic beverage, I will politely decline, but offer a Peligrino and I will happily accept!
