23 days down.  23 days to go.  This hasn’t been easy for me.  Especially the no drinking alcohol part.  That has been brutal!  Not because I’m a big drinker or anything, but because I have been bombarded with events that you need to drink at to have a good time.

For example, last Saturday was a bachelor party I had to attend.  Why was I not enthusiastic?  Can’t drink.  Where’s the fun there?  And St. Patty’s Day is around the corner.  A bunch of friends are going bar hopping, so naturally it would be stupid for me to go.  I guess I could be the designated driver, but why should I have to suffer by listening to all that sweet drunk talk?

Bottom line is, I am going to think twice thrice before sacrificing alcohol again.  Too hard.  And being Catholic, I should be drinking wine at church, right?  So, yeah.  It may have been a little counterproductive.

    The 40 days of Lent do not include Sundays, so you could start drinking after midnight and not be breaking your vows.

    That’s true. But I don’t want to half-ass it. I’m going to follow through the entire time.
